The Art of Chillaxing

She knows something I don’t. Bella clearly understands the need to relax, the need to quiet the mind. She has a knack for allowing peace and tranquility to take over her entire being.
 She can fall asleep anywhere and in any position.

From being stretched out to curling up in a ball.

Her absolute favorite though is laying on top of pillows, any and all of them that happen to be around her at the time.

She can go from crazy hyper to asleep in 0 to 5…this always amazes me!
Chillaxing is an art and she is the in-house artist.
In a country where everything is fast-paced, where multi-tasking seems essential in the workplace, how do you relax? What do you do to unwind? Or do you forget to do just that?
Perhaps you let your worries, work, and anxiety fill your mind until you feel like your head is going to explode.
Are you a person who lets your work make you crazy with stress?
Maybe you don’t sleep well at night.
Maybe you don’t take time for yourself.
I don’t know about you but when I get home from work, it’s hard to turn everything off. I have a huge to-do list that grows by the minute. I take work home, I answer e-mails, I answer work calls. It’s overwhelming. There is just not enough time in the day.
Or perhaps there is just not enough time to do the things that matter most?
What matters most though?

Time with friends?
Time with family?
Time alone?
There is something to be said for peace and relaxation, with the goal of maintaining a calm sense of self.
To shut the world off, taking its cares and worries with it.
To close our eyes and fall asleep on top of a mound of pillows.
