We don't need to read replies like that. Please tone it down.

ARGH MY VIRGIN EYES IZ BURND!!

To relax, I:

1. Unplug the phone
2. Put some headphones on
3. Lay on the sofa or bed and read a good book

And sometimes, yes, exercise or a walk does the trick.

I don't relax. Don't know how and have stopped trying to find out. I need to be doing something constantly to occupy my time or I go insane. If I'm just lying around, it's because I'm suffering from exhaustion, not because I feel the need to relax. Not really a pleasant thing, but I'm used to it.

I do enjoy a nap now and then, but that only works if the TV is on. I'm an insomniac, but a combination of Wolf Blitzer and Lou Dobbs really seems to do the trick. It's the only reason I have CNN.

Walking on the beach, picking up seashells.

If that's not possible, sitting with my feet up and one of the cats on my lap.

I have this one - a gift from my best friend after her Mom passed away, given to me as something to remind me of her mother. Very kind and beautiful.

As to the relaxation, I agree with most of the posts so far.


I like to catch evening light. Whether it's in my bed or on the couch. I like to open the blinds just enough to let the warm pink evening light in. I light some sandalwood, strawberry or Gonesh No. 4 incense and then on low volume put on some quieter Underworld or Vangelis or Miles Davis or my "sleepytime" playlist on my iPod.

Then I just lay on my bed or couch in minimal clothing and just float away.


When I have the time, it's a very nice way to relax . . . and usually catch a catnap.

Well, I got the idea the first time someone mentioned it.

But good on you for quoting it again so everyone gets a chance to read it all over. Defeats the purpose doesn't it?

I could have written this myself! I can't even tune everything out and sit still long enough to watch a movie all the way through. I gave up trying to relax a long time ago.

Uh...stuff. Don't judge me.

Reading sometimes work too. Just laying back and maybe sleeping in front of the TV.

Anyone know how to relieve stress knots in the upper back? I've had them for about six years. They're a bitch to say the least.

See a good massage therapist who can pinpoint where the knots are coming from. If they're in your upper back though, I'd say 99% that it's posture-related - stretch your pecs, strengthen the muscles between your shoulder blades. Oh, and like your mama told you, sit up straight!

what a beautiful picture


I'm not much of a relaxer. I'm on vacation from school this week and had nothing to do yesterday. I had no idea what to do with myself for most of the day.

I guess I walk a lot. In the summers I walk around a lot of lakes. In the winter on the treadmill. I also bake a lot. It's hard to bake to relax right now while going to culinary school because most of the stress in my life comes from that place. I can't have a stressful day at school and then come home and want to be in the kitchen to relax even though that's where I really want to be to relax If that makes any sense at all.
