Start the New Year Fresh
If you're not in the habit of relaxing, start the new year with a resolution to add this important activity (or lack of activity) to your life from now on.Spend a little time browsing through books and websites devoted to relaxation ideas. What sorts of relaxing opportunities appeal to you? Not everyone agrees that the same things are relaxingsome people find adrenalinpacked activities relaxing while others would rather slump in the hammock with a good book. It's your choice, just so long as it relaxes you.Almost everyone finds spastyle activities relaxing. This might mean a weekly bath by candlelight with big bubbles (and maybe some bubbly), a massage (at home with a loved one or paid for at a spa), yoga, meditation and the like.When you get a chance, take a relaxation break on Saturday or some other appropriate free day or afternoon. Get your rest, have some friends over for a spa party if you want, or just be alone. You can give yourself an oil treatment, manicure/pedicure, and whatever else will make you feel good and look good.
