National Relaxing day


Happy Relaxation Day! According to the Huffington Post today is National Relaxation Day. I am sure many people, including my son, would use this as an excuse to be lazy. Not me I am going to relax my mind today.

Today I vow to take a break from worrying about bills, my health and the economy. I will spend the day engaging in activities that further my long term goals. Today I will skip TV watching and instead listen to Mozart while clearing clutter from my house. Sounds like work, but it is not. I will be getting rid of what is no longer important to me in order to give myself some space or breathing room.

Following my heart surgery I came to the conclusion I have way to much material stuff or junk as I now refer to a lot of my belongings. I worried that if something were to happen to me it would be up to my mother and son to clean out my house. What a terrible burden on them! Soon my son will be off to college and no longer will I be required to maintain my big house and yard. I will be free to move from Carson City in order to attend graduate school. At some point I will have to think about moving again and what I really want to take with me. A lot of this clutter just has to go.

I have been spending a lot time worrying about my bills, my health and our state’s lousy economy. Today I want a break from all this, so hello Mozart, goodbye stressful thinking!

Of course, part of my day will include reading. This always relaxes me.
What are you going to do today?

  1. Hi Sarij,Sorry to hear about your heart surgery-hope you are feeling well. Clutter doesn't stand a chance at my house, but my husband is the opposite so sometimes things have to be gotten rid of gradually-from the drawer to the closet, to the attic, then finally out the door to Goodwill. LOL
