Celebrating National Relaxation Day in Style

Today was my very first time celebrating National Relaxation Day, and to say that I was excited is an understatement. I just can’t get over it….an entire holiday devoted to encouraging people to focus on relaxing and enjoying life. OMG, where do I sign up for that? It really is wonderful to know that you do not need to take a course in learning how to relax and unwind. All you need to do is to get back to the things in life that you enjoy doing. Life can be so busy sometimes that we forget to empower ourselves by making the right daily choices.
One of the things that I like to do to relax and unwind each day is to work on a crossword puzzle. Yes…it’s true….I love words! And while working on a crossword puzzle may not seem too exciting, I personally love doing crossword puzzles because they help me to focus and have fun on finding words. When I search for the words, I have mental images in my mind of the words that I am finding. Then, I start getting excited and more motivated to find the word. I love the feeling of accomplishment that I get when I complete an entire word search puzzle, and I feel fired up to do more puzzles until I complete the entire book. Oh joy! So much fun.
But I also feel excited and relaxed when I drink a large delicious cup of tea while wearing my comfy pants and a tank top. See, each person’s definition of relaxation is different. For some people, relaxation is the opportunity to work at their own pace. For other people, a day of relaxation involves sports and physical exercise. It is up to you to reach deep within yourself to find out what would make you feel most relaxed and refreshed. Relaxation is something that we all need more of in this life.
When you have a quiet moment, ask yourself how many hours per week you actually took time out of your busy day to make yourself feel special. If it has been more than two weeks since you can remember taking time to relax, then you need make relaxing and treating yourself a priority. It would be so nice if we could have people in our lives who will grant our three wishes like the genie in Aladdin. But the truth is that there are certain tasks that only you can do for yourself, and relaxation is one of those tasks.
