I have just gotta apologize for skipping out on Just a Motivating Monday last week! Things were crazy busy in such a good way around these parts that I completely could not get to it... but this is a new week, and this week we're starting this week off RIGHT!

Sometimes we don't find the time that we need for silence... our moments of sorting our thoughts, feeling the feelings in our heart that point us in the direction or path that will define our life.  These times of silence and relaxation are so important for our souls.  If we just continue to go on and on without taking a time out for ourselves

"Don't underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering."  ~Pooh's Little Instruction Book, inspired by A.A. Milne

We run, run, run and try to do everything in our little power to rush a million things in a day that only has so many hours. I do this EVERY, SINGLE DAY! I am going to make it a point to follow Pooh's Little Instruction Book and find time to do nothing, listen to the things that can't be heard and to find time to take a hot, hot, hot bath with candles, soft music and NOT BE BOTHERED!

I would love it if you left a comment and let me know things you do to relax.

A long, hot bath, a nice book, and peace and quiet- the best way to relax!

I blog, read, or do something with my hands (knit, crochet or cross stich)... or you can find me vegging out on the couch under a blanker and in front of the tv with a bowl of popcorn, but that doesn't happen until after Noah is in bed.

Hi Amanda! Great post :-D relaxing - so important - :-D I do the reading thing, music (especially playing an instrument), writing - and escaping. Sometimes I just need to escape. Dates with my hubby help me relax, or spending time on the beach or in the mountains.

I love this! I sometimes do a blog post about giving yourself a pass. It's a pass to do nothing, take a night off of cleaning, cooking, etc. REST and give yourself a break!
