When I need a break...


When I need a break I love to grab a good magazine and escape for a bit. A few of my favorite magazines are Parents, Real Simple, Cookie, InStyle and Body & Soul.

What do you do when you need a break from it all?

When I need a break and actually get one, I always read a book. My AF

Going out for a run helps clear my mind.

I'll go hide in my bedroom and watch some chick flick or read a book. Or I'll just get out and walk around the neighborhood or go to a book store.

I like the trashy weekly gossip mags. (Shhh! Don't tell anyone!) Or the same sort of sites online. Can't help it, I'm addicted! :)

Ahhhhh, magazines are a great way to relax! I also like to close the door and hop on my treadmill with my ipod and just run!

Aloha!

I head on over to the local park. Often when I get to the park I'll walk. I went this morning and there was a horse in a pasture in the middle of the park, and I got to talk to him for awhile! It was find and got my mind off of things for awhile!

I definitely love to close the door to my bedroom and watch a chick-flick in bed -- oooh, and it's even better when hubs is gone and I can sprawl out and fluff up the pillows and eat popcorn...of course, on TOP of the comforter! :)

And I think Will took a great picture. I was all like "hey, how'd she get someone to take her picture like that?! Good job, Will!

When I need a break. I may read or find a great movie to watch.

Marie said...

Read! I curl up on the couch with a cat (or two) and a good book :-)

Tam said...

I read or stalk blogs!

Becca said...

I love going for a walk or reading a book :)

I've actually learned to tune out people. It's amazing and I can't believe that I couldn't do this years ago. Now I can take a mental break whenever without even leaving the room. :)

I go into the bathroom and tell them that Mommy is pooping in the potty. Then I read while sitting on the toilet. Right now it's One Fifth Avenue by Candace Buschnell. This buys me about 20 minutes before my husband figures out that I am not actually pooping.
