Life is busy, hectic, and responsibilities are at an all time high. To put it simple life is stressful! I know it and you know it. But what do we do? Well, I think we all just need to relax. We need to carve out time to rejuvenate. Now I know that’s hard because I stay pretty busy myself. But, I have found that you can replace some other things you do with times of rest and rejuvenation.
Here are some examples in no particular order:
- Instead of watching tv – read a book

- Instead of going out shopping – get a massage

- The weather has been nice outside this past week, so instead of running errands – go for a walk every once in a while
Forsyth County has great walking trails between all our 20+ parks and the Greenway. Enjoy them! Click here for more info on our parks.
- Instead of getting lost on social media – disconnect more
I just read this blog a few years ago and it really inspired me. We do spend too much time on our phones. It’s a great practice to disconnect nightly. We don’t need to escape on our phones. Click here to read the blog on divorcing your phone.
- Instead of cooking at home – go out to eat
I have it factored into our schedule that we eat out at least once a week. This takes the pressure off me from cooking every single night! It’s like a night off. And those nights are always less stressful for me. Maybe even pick a night where the Kid’s Eat Free from our directory!
- Make time to pamper yourself every now & then!
Bliss Mama Wellness is hosting an event on February 3rd that would be perfect to pamper yourself. For more information and to RSVP, click here.
