The runs I've scheduled for during the week are a relatively short time commitment, so getting them done should be easy-peasy right? Well, Tuesday's run didn't happen until 5pm while I had dinner in the oven. I had been in my running gear since getting out of bed, but was just dragging (hmmm, having two boys up during the night, one with a wet bed and one wanting to eat, could be why I was exhausted...) and so I had a nap with the boys in the afternoon which gave me the pep in my step I needed to get going. It took two hours after nap time before I was running though as timing is everything when it comes to running with children, and I had to wait for Eli to sleep, and Darius to be playing with Daddy. In the end the run happened! I felt great after it, and I was back on track mentally too.
I'm now waiting to hear back from the realtor as to whether the condition has been lifted on the offer on our house. The waiting game is not something I'm good at, and so I need to either go do some yoga or watch something that will make me laugh out loud. Seriously, if you're ever feeling tense, and you're trying to respect your rest day (today is one of those for me!) yoga and comedy are great stress relieving options.
Do you do yoga or watch a comedy when stressed? Or do you have another favorite stress reliever?
