IMPLEMENT 3 WAYS TO RELAX
Beautiful spirit, Happy Saturday! I was sitting here cleaning of my desk and thought it would be a great time to send you a little note.
As I was clearing the clutter, I had my worship music playing. While listening, I was prompted to write a short message to you including 3 Ways to Relax. Hence the evolution of this post.
The first as I mentioned, would be to sit in a quiet space and listen to some soft music. My preference is Worship Music, as it is soothing to my spirit. Whether you choose that, Jazz, instrumental, classical, or some other genre, take the time to drown out the noise and be still. And yes, the noise includes putting down the cell phone. I wouldn’t want you to get interrupted by a notification, and ruin the peaceful vibe.
The second way is to get outside the four walls and get some fresh air. When was the last time you went for a walk, alone? This seems obvious, but how often do you do it? I’m waiting……..It can be done when it’s cold outside! Bundle up and put on that soothing music. Guess what, it’s also free!
And last, but certainly not least. Hit the bubbles. Remember, “Calgon, Take Me Away?” I’m dating myself. Run that water. Get those bubbles, candles, book or music, beverage of choice, (I know you want a tall glass of water with lemon.) And lock the door! You deserve it. My point is, don’t let another year pass without you slowing down and smelling the roses.
This short list is by no means exhaustive. But is instead encouragement to be intentional in the little things that cost you little to nothing. The rewards will be well worth it. Sanity and an adult time-out are enough to cause you to schedule yourself on your calendar. Beautiuful spirit, make this a year of intentional self-care.
I almost did it again. You know, the quote. Here you, go. I took this one from one of Bishop T.D. Jakes’ many books. This quote came from the book, “Instinct.”
The quote is, “Sometimes opposition comes dressed as opportunity.” Ponder that…..
Now, what would you add to this relaxation list? I’d love to hear.
