Rest & Relaxation


I tend to be a rush kind of person. I like to get things done as quick as possible. I’m a get it done now kind of lady. With that, comes stress. I’m learning I need to slow it down and enjoy my life more. What is the point of rush, rush, rushing if I’m not enjoying life? The answer is, there is no point.

With that said I’m slowing things down and learning to soak up the moments around me. Life is a balance of upward moves, downward slides, bumps in the road, and precious moments to soak up. Each year passes and brings new goals, changes, likes, dislikes, loves, and memories with it. My forever future goal is to enjoy each passing day, each passing moment, each task and each goal I set. Happiness isn’t always reaching the end, happiness is enjoying the whole journey.

I’m working to add more R&R into my life. There are tons of ways I’ve been relaxing lately. I’m reading more, enjoying silence when I can, enjoying alone time during my workouts, and learning to silence my to-do lists and live in the moment. I’ve been ditching heels and enjoying comfy shoes and clothes. There is something so awesome about lounge clothes! Athleisure is a real thing folks! Overall, I’m just learning to rest, relax, and soak up the moments!

Below, I’ve gathered some fun R&R treats that are easy on the wallet. Enjoy!
