Unplug and Recharge.. Do you or have you ever tried this?

Many are trying something new... It's called Unplug and Recharge...


You take a relaxing video, say of the ocean or perhaps a nice rain forest.. Watch it for about 10 ro 15 mins and relax. Sometimes just nice relaxing music with no words works, and even Yoga...

So.. do you or have you  tried any of these relaxing methods?

Do they work ?

I use relaxing wordless music to relax.. sometimes deep breathing helps alot to.. or a nice peaceful walk.

It's hard to get Me time as a mom but sometimes having no stimulation like a pc in front of you... or kids yelling at you..even a tv on..

Just nothing but a quiet room... and a little music.. sounds of nature or storms..That's what I get.. and it helps if stress is eating at you... :)

Hubby and I use sound-scapes, and it had beautiful scenes, the whole family loves it.

I have often times done that since I was a pre teen. I used to buy ocean/rain/rain forest/Native American chants etc. and listen to them. It actually helps relax me. Music is such a huge part of my life it has always helped me

I believe with all that is going on with mom's being busy.. we all need something to plug in to or un plug so we can relax..

Many have shared in the past they just go on CM.. but how is CM relaxing?

I know it's a way to get away from life.. I use it as well for that purpose.. lol

but.. relaxing it dosen't really work for me. But if it works for you .. then .. thats good.. tell me how it is relaxing for you.. :)

I use to have those moments.. but now I just have hot showers with " mom i need help, or he's hurting me" lol
