Relaxing: Different Flavors

deckchairs-355596_640This month, my children, my parents, and I are going to the beach. There’s a bit of a disagreement between us all. My mom is a go-and-doer. We, my girls and I, are relaxers.

So, she not only wants to go-and-do, she wants us to go-and-do with her. The girls and I just want to do the beach (waves, shells, reading) and swim in the pool.

It got me thinking: we all have different ways to relax. Mine consists of soft background noise, pretty smells, and a book. This is my relaxation of choice at home or away. Others like to engage with their environment. They talk to people, take in new sights, and try new things.

Both ways are okay. My way may be boring to some, while someone else’s way is stressful to me.

How do you relax? Is it different when you’re away?

    I like quiet to relax–or at least low stimuli.
    (And sometimes alcohol!) LOL

  2. Yeah, alcohol is definitely a good element to throw in sometimes!

    Several. The pool is my #1 way especially when I am all alone. Also wine and a warm bath.

    I’m a relaxer too. I don’t understand people who go on vacations just to run around to see everything they can. Don’t get me wrong, I do like visiting places but vacations are for relaxing in my book.

    Great post, Lori!
