Chilling Out Maxin Relaxin All Cool




Follow me on Instagram


Whenever I see photos of bubble baths, face masks, and chocolate on instagram my first thought is, "I want a relaxing night with all the lush gear in the world", but mine usually end up in getting overheated in the bath, flustered with a face mask, and then eventually eating so much chocolate and cake that I feel guilty the next day.
This year, visiting my parents in Spain has been as relaxing as it's probably going to get, and the fact it was the hottest summer ever over there meant that moving an inch brought on a sweat. So there was nothing else to do other than read, eat a lot of meat riddled with condiments, and float around on a lilo covered in factor 50 and wishing there was an occasional bit of cloud cover. 
All of the above was very zen/be at one with my thoughts and I reckoned I should probably find more things to do once home that aren't as hustle and bustle as my usual routine. So here's how I've been adding different activities into my er'day working week.

Swimming

As a nipper I swam competitively for 7 years and ended up with some huge shoulders and green hair as a result. But it kind of took over my life and wasn't fun anymore so I ended up quitting to do cool things like under 18s "nappy" nights on a Friday..... I don't go to these (that much) anymore so swimming has re entered my life, not only is it a great way to get rid of any tensions, it's an awesome work out too.

Reading

Something I'm urging myself to do more of. Any fiction recommendations would be wins. 

Have a night in 

Whether it's X factor with friends or a board game, sometimes nights in are just as fun as a night "out out".  There's nothing quite like the thrill of cluedo  with a few drinks. If not, how about a spot of Bingo? There's loads of games to play from the comfort of your own home, whether you're playing for fun or if you've got your eye on their progressive jackpots!

  2. Shooting some b-ball outside of the school. (I couldn't resist!)

    I wish I had a pool so badly, I used to do competitive swimming as well and I really miss being able to get into the water every day. We don't really have any nice community pools around here either.
