Word of the Week: Relax...



....and REALLY take the time to smell and savor the flowers!


                         
                            

I have a bad habit of multi-tasking even when I should be relaxing and taking a break.

 Can you relate?

I'm going to make a real effort this week to focus on doing better when it comes to taking a "time out" and truly relaxing mind, body and soul. Instead of having a million "to do" thoughts floating through my mind when I'm trying to take a breath or mediation break. Reading a book and at the same time, writing out yet another list for the week etc, etc...
                                   

Here's to enjoying all the beauty and magnificence of June's flowers.

 And taking the time to really R-E-L-A-X!

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads!

I wish my brain had an off/on switch...I really need one of those! You offer some great advice here, and I hope you're able to rest and relax this week. :~)

Love this photo, wow.

We should take the time to really relax and just focus on a time out, not anything else. Good advice.

Hi Lorraine, I love this photo too, this pink is one of my favs! LOL, ok, send me that angel, thank you. But make sure to keep one on your own shoulder too. We all need those angels!

Hi Margie, And to you as well Margie. And joy to you my friend.

Hi Sherri, I hope you have a wonderful relaxing week too. I'm working on it as of today! LOVE your new avatar photo btw.

Hi Joe, The not anything else part is always a problem for me. But maybe by thinking about NOT doing that, I can improve.

Happy Week everyone, G :<)

Beautiful photo! As for multitasking, I'm guilty as charged!

Cathy said...

Hope you don't mind that I pinched that photo to make as my background on the desk top, just gorgeous and I need something to cheer me.

You mean....relax?....what the heck is that!
Okay, my relaxation is just looking at his gorgeous flower! Wow, what a beauty.

Hi Madeleine, It's an easy habit to get into but not particularly good when trying to actually relax. Here's to going for the total OMMMM..... :<)

Hi Cathy, I'm honored. It is a great photo, isn't it? the flowers weren't actually that amazing when I took this pic but it seems that sometimes, in a photo they look better than reality. Glad you liked it. And here's to a happier day on the way.

Hi Teri, It's worth aiming for though, don't ya think? Glad you enjoyed this floral pic too.

Happy Week and BFN, G
