It's a rare occasion since I became a mom, but a home-pampering session is my ultimate unwind after a long day. I pop in a 30-minute yoga dvd, followed by a bath complete with salts and oils, a face mask, a quick mani/pedi, and a full body moisturize. Ahh, those times are precious.
#2 Marthalynn on 2011-11-11 12:16
I watch tv in my pj's!!

#5 Diana on 2011-11-11 12:19
This time of year, I love to open the windows, light some candles, create a yummy dinner that requires lots of chopping (weird stress reliever, right?!) and catch up on all of the shows I've missed for the week.
#6 auburn on 2011-11-11 12:25
After a long day I take a long bath and catch up on my Hulu que watching my favorite TV shows.
#7 Catherine on 2011-11-11 12:27
Being a vet student relaxation time is incredibly important. After a long stressful day I like to come home, light a candle, and take a bubble bath. I put on some of my favorite music and just relax. I usually follow up with something that makes my skin feel soft again like a scrub or mask.
#8 Sierra on 2011-11-11 12:54
After a long day, all I really want to do is take all the makeup off, moisturize and be clean, and then sit and unwind with a trashy romance novel.
#9 Christina on 2011-11-11 13:00
I light a ton of candles (I'm talking like 10), and do yoga. If I'm feeling lazy, I just make hot tea and watch cheesy "chick-flicks."
#10 Raegan on 2011-11-11 13:03

#22 Monica on 2011-11-11 14:12
After a long day (which usually is comprised of volleyball plus classes and a lot of walking up and down a big hill) I like to get a hot, healthy dinner in the dining hall and then treat myself to a hot shower. And then I nap for a while if I don't have homework to do.
#23 Eva on 2011-11-11 14:15
Well, it isn't always so glamorous, but after an exhausting day I make some dinner and watch True Blood with a glass of wine. Then I draw a bubble bath and lounge in there with a book or magazine for about 20 minutes. Stress flees from this.

#102 Amanda G (Homepage) on 2011-11-15 09:58
A nice hot bath is the best way for me to unwind!

BUT I dont always have time for a bath - So when I need to unwind sometimes its as simple as closing my eyes in my chaotic world and pretending I'm alone for 5 minutes!

Lavender oil helps too!
