Many of us believe that to get relaxation we need to leave our homes. What ends up happening is that we are always working and saving for a vacation so we can go and relax. What if your home was a place you could come home to and rejuvenate and relax. How do we experience the state of relaxation that we have on vacations in the comforts of our own home?
It seems like we give ourselves permission to let go when were on vacation. Why can’t we give ourselves the same permission while we are at home, even with our schedules and routines? What makes relaxing challenging is all of our routine tasks that need to be addressed. So how do we create an environment to help us relax in the midst of our crazy lives?
The first thing is to realize that everything does not need to be done now, like the cleaning of a mess and other tasks. We need to realize that relaxing is as important as our physical nourishment. Just like eating, relaxing is every bit as important.
I think that creating an environment in your home that feels calming is the most important. So even putting aside one hour and night for everyone to just chill. If you have kids they can be chilling while they’re doing their homework in their rooms while you and your husband put on a little easy music and exchange shoulder massages, maybe have a different beverage that doesn’t have to be wine, in a wineglass.
Allowing yourself to get out of the rut of your schedules and tasks to just do something completely pleasurable. Your responsibilities will be there when you’re ready to pick them up again. This may be hard to do for some of you, and it might be a good idea to pay attention to the anxiety that you are feeling while trying to relax in your home when there’s things to be done. There is always going to be something that needs to be done. This is one of the reasons why I offer the remote retreat in the comforts of your own home so that you can do your personal work and still be at home.
It’s very important to pencil in on your to do list time to nurture yourself. If you don’t put it in your schedule it will probably never happen because life gets the best of us and we go into autopilot. Make it a point to try this even if it’s for 30 minutes every night. It can be meditating, sitting and talking with each other, exchanging backrubs or anything else that you find relaxing.
