Breathing. It's something we do without even thinking.  BUT, if you spend just a little time focusing on your breath, it can relax and invigorate you! Today's challenge is to take a deep breath!

Put your phone on silent, turn off the TV, and find a quiet spot where you can be all alone. Clear your mind and take a few deep breaths to relax. Release any negativity or criticisms you are feeling and focus on only positive things.

Do you have a difficult time finding a few minutes to yourself each day? What are some things you do to relax your body and mind?

I never have alone time. I don't do anything, that's part of why I'm so stressed

I try to get up early and read.  It helps me start my day with hope.

No, I have plenty of time each day to myself. I think a wee bit TOO MUCH time. LOL To relax body and mind I do stretching exercises, feels so good to stretch.

I struggle with finding alone time. I feel guilty sometimes or else we are just too busy for me to go sit somewhere and be by myself for a few minutes. Something I need to practice doing though!

My time to myself is my evening workout and then my shower.  About 90% of the time I get to do both alone.

I don't usually find time to relax though, I know I really should.

Time alone? What's that?
I will have to squeeze some time in some where. Maybe when i go to the bathroom.

 I do take time for myself-otherwise everyone suffers. I have a little sign that say "When mama's not happy, nobody's happy". lol

I close the bedroom door and read...or come on CafeMom-it relaxes and rejuveniates me.
