Is it easy for you to relax?
For some people, it is. For others like me, it’s almost stressful to consider relaxing. It’s like we’re not wired that way. As a Type-A, straight-A, oldest child in my family growing up, the idea of relaxation was an annoying gnat that flew in my face around final exams or big-life-changes like going to college.
As a part-time working wife and mom, with special needs kids, relaxation is now the elephant in the middle of my living room… too important to ignore if I want to have any kind of joy in life (or any life at all past my 40th birthday!)
I know I’m not alone here. Why? Because all I have to do is type, “Coffee, please,” as my Facebook status and I get 20 “likes” and comments about the need for a second cup… all by 8 in the morning!
We need help, people.
What if we had a few dozen healthy, easy tricks to add to coffee as a way to relax and get refueled for the days we face?
That’s what this series of video posts is about: rehab for the relaxation-challenged. About creating small, simple opportunities throughout every day to check in with ourselves, with God, with others, and take a little breather…. even in the middle of a hectic, demanding lifestyle.
So check out this short video to get started!
