1-Maman Rebelle at Cocoon Bien Naître
While thinking about the word “relax”, a lot of ideas come to mind. First, I think of taking a bath with lavender oil to soothe my body; meditating while listening to soft music to reconnect with my spirit; a jog in the park to release tension; a massage using tennis balls to ease muscle soreness; and finally, there is nothing better for relaxation than enjoying a glass of wine while watching “Bridget Jones’ Diary” or the new Quebecois series, “Mon Ex à Moi”! It’s a great way to stop thinking, to laugh and take a breather for an hour and a half or two. You can share this time with girlfriends to increase your enjoyment, and to talk about anything and everything. As a bonus, you can always add pizza or a bowl of popcorn.
2- Catherine at La Mammifère
It’s not always easy to relax when you’re a stay-at-home mom, freelance writer and blogger. When I feel the need, I switch off, if only for a few hours. There’s nothing better than to put away the screens for a while, go for a family walk or simply get outside to play. Afterwards, the motivation returns like magic!
Also, when everyone is asleep, I try to take a moment for some meditation. It’s a great tool to relax and manage stress, and also to get a better sleep!
3- Julie at Pure Laine (boutique)
I decided to reserve Wednesdays to write. So, for the last several weeks, each Wednesday I write while sitting at my favourite restaurant (there’s wi-fi!). I’ll get something to eat, listen to music, write and relax, at last! There’s nothing like getting out of the house to really take a break.
