I treat myself to a pedicure every once in awhile. I work really hard and stress myself out a lot, but getting pampered every so often keeps me from losing my cool. I also just like to have Sunday movies days with my SO. Spending a day cuddling on the couch is really relaxing to me as well.

For destressing, exercise definitely. Running or weights.

I’m like you, and terrible at relaxing. What I’ve had to do is start scheduling “down time” because otherwise I feel bad because I’m not *doing* something. So now, most nights, after 7:30 pm it’s just “hang out and do what we want” time; for me that’s knitting, or reading, or watching a movie. I find that having that time helps me relax before bed, and then I sleep better, which makes me more productive when I’m getting things done, so it helps me to justify “wasting” that time to myself. (Because I do feel like I’m wasting it sometimes.)

I defiintely have to write it into my schedule or I stress over wasting time. I schedule my workout in the morning as well as time reading the Psalms and I schedule an hour and a half for grooming and a bath at night. Thesee really have become my only non negotiables in my day.
