Friday Fun! (Help Me Learn to Relax!)
Hello my lovely readers!
You guys. I have a confession to make. I am absolutely horrible at relaxing. It’s true! I have this constant drive to be doing doing doing and frankly my anxiety level tends to be high. I mean, I couldn’t even handle the low-key pilates a trainer had me do at the gym. No. If it didn’t hurt and/or make me sweat, then it didn’t count.
I mean, I can’t even watch a movie unless I am simultaneously doing something else. While cooking I listen to an audiobook or watch a documentary tv show. While blogging I listen to a new cd. I am constantly going and doing something even when I don’t have to. I mean, I willingly drag my butt to three different grocery stores for the best quality and prices, which may sound reasonable until you realize that I don’t have a car and must tote everything on my back while walking or taking the T.
Oh and this week I was this close to starting some seeds going in my kitchen at 9pm.
Anyway, what I would looooove from you all would be some suggestions on how the hell to relax in a healthy manner, because fuck if I can figure it out. I mean when I tried yoga tonight I spent half the session trying to convince myself not to start a fight with the chick in the back row whose ujjayi breathing was too loud.
Saying I am high strung is putting it lightly.
So! Please pour in the suggestions. I’ll wait over here.
Oh and btw I don’t have a bathtub or trust me I’d be lounging in one at least once a week.
