Have my husband massage my feet (or go and get a ped at a push)....I cannot stay tense when that's being done.

Sometimes going to a movie or just taking a drive relaxes me, if I'm in the right mood.
Two Peas is sometimes relaxing...however today, it's getting me all riled up.

Have my husband scratch and tickle my back.
Sit in a dark and quiet room and just lay on the couch and shut my eyes. I don't usually fall asleep but I find having 15 minutes or so of quiet time really helps me out.

I go to the gun range with my husband. We compete to see who is the better shot. It's fun. Our gun range is in the middle of nowhere and there aren't many members so we just go and enjoy nature and shoot some targets.

Yoga, beadwork, read, watch tv.
You should give yoga another try - I use it different breaths the time for calming me down , chilling out etc. perhaps the class you went to wasn't the right one for you.

Yoga just made me more nervous as the instructor was really strict and talked so low I could barely hear him, so struggled to pay attention to what he was saying instead of relaxing.
To relax: I crochet, read, ride my horse, play on the internet
Find something you enjoy, it may be something totally different than what other people like. Take a walk, do stretches, put on soothing music, etc.
|Posted: 10/4/2012 8:57:21 AM|Sitting down with a cup of coffee and reading or surfing the internet. Sometimes, I watch tv. Relaxing is rare for me so I want to do something mindless
