Sometimes you just need some down time, some ‘me’ time. Relaxing not only helps bring your mind and body to peace, but it also to get you inspired. Isn’t that a funny concept, that we need to relax in order to create better content? Being able to clear your mind helps let the creative juices flow and I find myself creating amazing new things that I LOVE!
Relaxing can mean different things for different people. It could be watching a movie, hanging out with friends low key, or a combination of both! If you stay constantly busy, you will not have the time to be creative and what you enjoy may actually start to make you miserable.
I always go through phases of accepting all work and ending up being very busy and overwhelmed. But then I then go through the phase of trying to wind down and not wanting to do anything and wanting to escape to a remote location with Nala. It’s an awful cycle but such is my life.
When I want to relax and escape work, I will focus on home duties, watch a movie (black + white classic romances please!), or take Nala for a long walk sans phone. I also try to make time for the ones I love. I will typically escape to Long Island when I need a break, plus it also helps bring a sense of appreciation and then I’m ready to get back to work..
How do YOU relax?
