Tuesday Tip – Take Mini-breaks!

Ready to break away?

Sticking with our monthly topic of relaxation, I’d like to recommend taking what I call “mini-breaks.”

A mini-break something that you can do to relax or rejuvenate yourself in just a few minutes.  It’s amazing how much better you can feel after taking a mini break!  If you schedule one of these everyday, your overall stress level will definitely decrease.  So STOP what you are doing and give yourself a quick break – you won’t regret it!

Here are some suggestions:

1.  Make a cup of your favorite coffee or tea, sit down and read a few chapters of a great book while enjoying it.

2.  Spend 10 to 20 minutes doing your favorite yoga moves.

3.  Go to the bookstore or library and browse for a few minutes.

4.  Take a short walk with a friend and catch up while you soak in some fresh air.

5.  Have only 5 minutes?  Look through your vacation pictures or a vacation photo album – remember the fun you had!

6.  Plan a surprise for a family member or friend.

7.  Slather on peppermint foot cream, then give yourself a pedicure.

8.  Buy yourself a bouquet of beautiful flowers!

9.  Color with (or without) your child.

10.  What’s your idea?  Share with us in the comments please!

  1. After looking into the bright light of the computer all morning, I take my coffee outside and walk around the house. Looking far away across the fields of our farm helps my eyes to regain some of the strength they lost while looking closely into the screen of the computer. It is very relaxing being out there for just a short time, although my mind is still on blogging. But I have to say the pepperment foot lotion that you mentioned sounds too tempting to pass up!
