What do you do to unwind?

Pool side

Do you ever find yourself stressed and overwhelmed? Maybe by work, forever list of things to do, over piled baskets of laundry, and you just need a time a space to unwind? Where do you go and what do you do to unwind?

We are all at different stages and places in life. Students, newlyweds, mothers but we all need moments to catch our breath, be refilled, and take care of ourselves so we can do the tasks and things we are needing to do in running this race and pursuing our dreams. 

Whether you're a mom, wife, or single chick like me...... Sometimes we feel selfish in taking time for ourselves. There is always something or someone who needs our attention. But what I'm finding by listening to your stories is that in order to be the best us, we need to make sure and carve out that time for unwinding.

There are many ways I unwind and create space and time to allow my body, soul, and mind to be rested and encouraged. It changes with seasons and what I'm particularly needing at the moment. 

Spending time with family and friends, a chat poolside with my best friend, or like today.... Being at the pool solo. Reading, praying, and soaking up the sun.

Read some of this today and helped remind me why I'm doing what I'm doing!

There are some things to remember:
1. You are worth it to find time to rest.
2. Plan and carve out time so you're not tempted to decide you don't have time to "rest"
3. Taking care of you makes you a better person for others.

Sometimes it's the small things that can soothe a tired mind.
