How do you unwind and relax? I do so by going on long walks by myself, listening to music with the lights off or by reading. Yoga also helps me a lot. Lately, I’ve been feeling a bit  out of  sorts, as though I don’t have enough time to do everything I need to take care of , yet bored at the same time! I can’t quite explain it. I have felt the need for more “me” time. Granted, I am pretty good about taking time for myself but it seems sometimes we need to tend to ourselves even more and really ask what is at the root of how we are feeling. Often times, the answer to feeling better appears when you sit still, quiet and simply listen to what your mind and body are telling you. So, I was glad to learn about Mindful Magazine as well as the website  share tips on ways to relax and become more in tune with ourselves and our surroundings.

I know I’m sounding a bit like a hippy, but sometimes  we need  to put relaxation techniques into action in order to regain whatever we are at a loss for at the moment.  Maybe I am just embarking on a pre-mid-life crisis, who knows! So, check out the site and their Mindful Interruptions, which you can also follow on Twitter. Even though the Mindful Interruptions  are a bit corny and silly they are pretty nice reminders on ways we can stop and smell the roses. So, tell me, how do you relax and unwind?
