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?
