Relax, Renew, Refresh!!

I have just begun to be able to relax again as I have had an injury caused by being pulled around the floor for three minutes to experience what it felt like to fly. Bring on three weeks of sleepless nights a lot of pain and  looks when I told people as to how it happened that I am a slightly unconnected individual.

I suppose we don’t really think how quickly our ability to relax and chill can be taken away from us, I hope I have learnt my lesson that relaxing take something as does stressing. Its amazing how many quotes on relaxing feature cute pictures of cats and dogs so I tried not to include to many in the 15 I have chosen to discuss this worthy subject, Let us begin our journey.

One thought on “Relax, Renew, Refresh!!

  1. The Bob Marley song is the perfect mantra for those days when one is feeling stressed. It encourages us to dance around the kitchen as well. 😊 Lhasa looked exactly like that as a kitten! He used to like sitting on louis’ and Yoshi’s shoulders. 😼 You’re also ‘spot on’ about how much more challenging it is to relax when teaching. When I was working full-time there were many evenings when I would sit at home reading through and responding to students’ work. The Charlie Brown quote is my favourite for this post. Such good advice!
