Today I'm Relaxing

I'm just having one of those down days. It is warm and beautifully sunny out, but I'm wishing it were the deepest winter so I didn't feel quite so guilty about curling up inside. If I were a school child still, today would be a time were I'd be tempted to pretend I'm ill; not because I didn't want to go to school but because staying in bed seemed way too appealing.

This morning I woke up with a terrible headache. I get headaches quite a bit, but still there is something about them that makes me feel so off. Despite my 8 hours of sleep I am so tired today. Not only am I physically exhausted (tough workouts lately), I'm mentally exhausted as well. I've had quite a lot on my mind lately and my brain needs a break. I can feel some big changes coming for me and I'm hoping I can face them strongly and happily.

Today will be spent lounging around in a wrinkly dress, finishing up a few projects (that I'm eager to share with you guys!), drinking tea and smoothies and eating yummy food, devouring the last bit of my book, and enjoying some soothing yoga.

What do you do to relax?


  1. awwww, sounds like you're treating yourself well today so hopefully you'll be back to good soon. Lounging with a good book or favorite (guilty pleasure) movie, a long bath, and journaling usually make me feel better when something is a little off.

  2. What do I do to relax? I uh, read blogs :) yours in particular lately! I also drink a soothing cup of tea, curl up with a book, clean (yeah, I feel more relaxed in an organized environment) and something Get Out of My House (since I work here, I can get irritated being in the same place all the time)

    I hope you relax well, and I can't wait to see your projects! That GOT picture is adorable. I love (and own) all the books.
