Relaxation

How do you relax? Do you have a glass of wine in the evening? Perhaps a hot bath with some candles? Or does listening to music help you relax?

On my drive across Canada this summer, I discovered that the best way for me to relax is to listen to music – but not just any music. I have come to thoroughly enjoy and relax to classical and to jazz music. I love to listen to classical music – it resonated with me when I was living in Prague, and when I attended a classic violin concerto, it took my breath away and gave me a new appreciation to classical music.

Today was a fast shift at work, and while I am still training, I was left on my own to figure things out today. While it was daunting and not without a LOT of questions from the butchers, it was exhilarating to be back at work and learning new things and using my brain again! Watching Cocomelon for three months, day in and day out, was not using my brain at all. So glad to be back to work!

But I came home tonight exhausted – mentally and physically. Once I got the little man to bed for the night, I ran myself a hot bath, turned on the classical music station and relaxed. Not only does my body feel better, so does my brain. I need to buy some epsom salts for my baths. And perhaps a scented candle or two. I do love relaxing in a bath.

So I will go back to listening to some more Vivaldi before heading to bed. Have a good night (or Saturday if you are ahead of my time!). Cheers!

Music soothes me…

I have two laptops – one is for work (blogging, Tupperware business) and keeping in touch with family and friends. The other one is for playing games on, watching movies and, when I think of it, listening to music.

I tend to forget that I can listen to music too. I like to relax at night and I know that music just makes me feel so relaxed and so good. I love singing along, even though I KNOW I can’t sing!

I love listening to almost any kind of music – soft rock, pop, country (which is my favourite), jazz, blues, 60s and 70s – I love a variety of music. Tonight I am listening to country music – it’s fun, it’s danceable (and yup I dance to it too! – curtains are closed though haha), and sometimes it just gets you. It just resonates with the feelings and moods you’re in that day.

So tonight, I’m relaxing to some Keith, Alan, Paul and many many others. What is your favourite way to relax? Do you listen to music? Do you go for a walk? There are so many ways we can relax. Pick your favourite, grab a drink of your choice, and enjoy your evening. Cheers!
