Back in September, i was asked to write a post for Ocean Loans about how i like to relax and what i would do in a typical day to relax. Relaxing is very easy for me, i don't get stressed and i think I'm quite a relaxed person. I am happy when I'm just relaxing at home on the weekend and perhaps popping out for lunch with my parents.
I was given £50 to spend on treating myself to relax. First thing i have to have it candles. Candles really change the mood and for me they just make everything so much more ambient and pure. After a hectic day at work, i love coming home to my bedroom and lighting a candle. I find it really helps me to unwind and forget about my woes and any negative energy is helped to go. I think I'm a naturally positive person, the glass is always half full and i like to think that theres a good in everything and everyone (even though unfortunately for some there isn't). For me, life is way to short to be negative and worry about everything. Of course there are things that i do worry about and i do get nervous/anxious very easily, but i have taught myself how to deal with these things and try to be positive, even in a bad situation.
The next thing i have to have is a good film or TV programme to watch. Typically, i will relax more the evenings then in the day, but thats just because during the day, particularly weekends as i work during the week. Sometimes i will just sit in my room all day, but thats how i like to do things. I don't like being busy, as i just can't cope with it and i prefer my own company to others, which people find really weird, but thats just me and how i like to live my life. Everyone is different at the end of the day and for me, as i don't have many friends (even one hand doesn't get filled) I've learnt that my own company is the best, as there is no drama and i don't have to pretend to be someone I'm not in front of certain people. I don't like pretending to be someone I'm not and agreeing with everything everyone says, but in a recent situation, i found that i was doing this just to please people and I've put my foot down now. You can't let others dictate your life and make you someone who are aren't. If you are not happy with the way your acting or being made to be, only you can change that and don't be scared to have your own opinions. Anyway, sidetracked. I do get bored very easily though, so thats when its time to annoy everyone in my family. I am a massive disney sucker, so anything disney, particularly the old school disney films are the best one. At the moment, i am loving Elf, purely because its nearly christmas and I'm so not in the christmas mood this year.
Finally, the one thing i have to have when watching a film is a can of pepsi max and a chocolate cookie. So simple, easy and god darn delicious.
I hope you enjoyed reading this and i would love to know how you like to relax. Have a great day and thank you for reading!
