I believe it is the best day of the year!!! Did you know that August 15th is Relaxation Day? Yes, you heard me right, there is a day that is devoted to relaxation. Personally, this means a little Self Care and pampering are in order (and maybe a little crochet too).
Relaxation Day is a day to kick back and do nothing. Ahhhh!
What a great day. The stresses, the hustle and bustle seemingly consumes us, every day of the year. Even Sundays are no longer days of rest and relaxation. There never seems to be a day to just kick back and relax. For those us with a hectic lifestyle, Relaxation Day is a day to look forward to.
It provides a break from the madness of your busy work and personal schedule. Todays is the day to enjoy either doing absolutely nothing, or partaking in your favorite relaxation activity. Avoiding stressful activities today is the rule.http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreholidays/August/relaxationday.htm
Crochet & Self Care
When I think of “self care”, I think of the things that I enjoy and love. As a mom, and know many of you are moms (even if you have grown children), we live hectic lives and rarely get time to ourselves. So, when we do, we MUST take advantage of that time.
What do I do when I have time to myself, and do I dare say it, the house to myself! I take the time relax….
If I had a day (or even just a morning), I would sleep in, roll out of bed and have a cup of coffee, or two. Then I would take a long hot bath, and take the time to shave my legs (hahaha, no I don’t do this everyday-remember, I’m a mom). I may steal a face mask from my daughters bathroom and pamper myself with a little skin care.
Then I would sit down and crochet. I don’t even know what I would crochet, but I would make something for me, I do know that.
What would you do, if you had a day to just yourself to focus on self care and relaxation?
