As you can tell, I have a lot on my plate. With taking care of my son, school and work, I hardly have anytime to just sit down and relax. So I figured for my first week, I’ll give some relaxations ideas. Well the ones I use.
Okay well here is a basic one that I know a lot of people use. At night after I put my son to bed, I’ll go in my room and turn out my lights. I have candles and incense that I light and I just go on my bed and turn on my music. I usually have my headphones in because I do have a younger brother who still loves to annoy me. Also with the headphones in, I just able to focus on the music more and I’m able to relax faster.
Another thing that I do is, when I have no work or class in the afternoon, my son and I will walk to the park near my house. It’s great exercise, bonding time with him, and a good way to enjoy the fresh air and warm sun. My son is two, so he gets excited over everything, so our walks are usually pretty exciting as he gets amazed over the littlest things. This works for me because I love my son to death and every moment we spend together he makes me extremely happy to be his mother and I just forget about the things that are stressing me out.
A third thing that I do is take a nice long hot shower. I prefer showers over baths. I have this speaker in my bathroom and I usually plug my phone into that and listen to music. I know when people take baths; they turn out the lights and turn on their candles. I have yet to try this in the shower because well, I’m not sure how I feel about showering in the dark, but it’s always worth a try!
Lastly one thing that absolutely love doing is taking pictures. I just bought a Canon t3i, and I love it so much. Right before the sunsets, I’ll go in my backyard and take pictures of the sky. I love the lighting, clouds and everything. I will always take like one million pictures of son, he hates it, but he deals with it… For the most part haha.
Well I hope you like some of my tips/ideas and I hope they work for you!!
