Affirmation: Relaxing after a challenging day brings renewal

Work is an important aspect of my life. Whether I am busy at the office or taking care of tasks at home and in the yard, I stay productive. When I am done working, I always take time to relax.

Some of my days are more hectic than others. Whenever I experience a fast-paced, challenging day, I take comfort in knowing that I can revive and refresh if I take the time to relax.

I am always open to discover new and different ways to relax. I employ various relaxation techniques to rejuvenate.

Sometimes, I listen to music for 15 or 20 minutes just to allow my mind to rest from the day’s events. I prop up my feet and close my eyes. I am always amazed how much my music revives me.

Other times, I pop in a yoga DVD. I find the slow stretching aids me in relaxing my body and mind at the same time. A thirty-minute nap before dinner is another favorite way to rejuvenate. Those few moments of shut-eye recharge my battery so I can make it through the evening. Or sometimes I take a quick walk instead.

Today, I am glad I utilize so many strategies to relax after a challenging day. I intend to explore new ways to relax and bring renewal to my life.

Self-Reflection Questions:
1. Do I make relaxing a priority in my life?
2. What are the main ways I rejuvenate?
3. What time of day can I take 30 minutes to refresh and renew? What will I do to relax during those times?
