Where Does Time Go??

peaceful restSince last week I've been trying to take things easy.  Rest.  Relax.  But how do you rest?  I need to redefine my thought of rest.  It doesn't have to be laying on the couch curled up under a blanket. Although it can be that too! But it can also be doing something.  Resting in motion.  Sounds like an oxymoron to me.  But ...

* Playing with cars and dinosaurs and bears (oh my!) with B can be restful.

* Sitting in a favorite coffee shop reading a book can be restful.

* Working on a new product design photo shoot can be restful.

That is the kind of rest that I need.  I need to be active doing things for me and my small family that are enjoyable.  Spring Cleaning would be a good start.  Or in better words deep-cleaning-my-entire-house-after-a-two-month-hiatus-because-I-was-busy.  But really how enjoyable is that?!?!

* Talking on here and telling stories in my own voice is restful :)

What do you do to allow yourself to refocus?

Cheers to clean houses, happy families, and resting in motion!
