This past week has been a bit of a whirlwind. Celebrations, work obligations, free time dwindling…you know how it goes. These are the times when I find myself seeking out ways to reign in the frenetic energy and get back to center. These are the times I redecorate and purge my house of those items I no longer love and replace them with items that make me just plain feel good. Lucky for you, friends, I have a great find to share with you so that you, too, can get back to center.

    I declare the bedroom off limits and have a little bit of time totally to myself. Maybe with a glass of wine and my journal or a book, or maybe with a video game or TV show. The time alone really helps me reset myself and de-stress.

    I like to out outside and see what’s happening in the yard. Right now I am getting little pots of bulbs and bringing them in side for bright bloom. I will replant them outside later in the spring.

    I light a candle, sit in my favorite chair, and read a light-hearted book. Usually while my husband willingly cooks dinner. It’s a pretty nice set up!

    Nothing soothes my soul like a warm bubble bath! I love to read or play music and just close my eyes while I soak in the tub. No matter how stressful my day was, I always come out feeling so cozy and relaxed!

    after a long day or week, I like to let it go and spend time with those I love, my husband, good friends, likely over a home cooked meal with some good music. It’s all about creating a space to remember that what really matters is the connections you have with those you love – not what was or was not accomplished on the to do list that week!

    A bath and a book are fabulous relaxers, especially if the day is cold and raw or there happens to be a Polar Vortex. If the weather is nice, then I love to take the dogs to the beach and let them run around. The ocean has a way of putting things into perspective and the day’s problems don’t seem so big when compared to the Atlantic.

    I take a hike. Literally. There are some great mountain trails about 20 minutes from where I live, and so I drag friends along and go climb a mountain. The exercise helps work out the stress built up in my body, and getting up to the top gives me fresh perspective on my own endeavors.

    I love Casey’s designs! Thank you for hosting this giveaway 🙂 To de-stress I love to kick back with a glass of champagne and a good book or french film . . . or grab cocktails with friends. . . or tackle a fun DIY project.

    Date night with my husband 🙂 We go out, typically for fancy burgers or pizza, and some delicious craft brews. Just chatting with him and relaxing makes my worries melt away a bit.

    I love these organic, but still graphic prints! Very cool!

    Honestly, one of my favorite things to do in the evenings is get in the kitchen. Scrubbing all of the dishes from the day makes me feel like I’ve hit the reset button, and then once everything is a clean slate, I start chopping and sauteing and simmering. Once everything is cooking away on the stove, I do another round of dishes and sometimes sweep the floor for good measure. I feel in control and relaxed when I have a clean kitchen and something hearty to eat that I made with my hands.

    I snuggle on the couch with my cat! Purrs are calming.

    Lighting Anthro candles, taking a long hot shower, a glass of red wine, wool sokcs, and snuggling under a down comforter with a good book to get lost in.

    We’ve re-instituted the cocktail hour in our house–“civilization’s crowning achievement” (lol, quote from The Love Letter) and it’s really less about the alcohol than it is about slowing down and doing something with intention.  Mixing a drink, having a nice glass, being sociable with the family and whatever friends have dropped by is so pleasant.  Sitting, and sipping, and sharing, either in front of the fire or on the porch is something special in our house and absolutely makes you de-stress.  Friday nights are best, and the teenage boys love to drink italian soda or have us mix up a “mocktail” with grenadine and cherries for garnish for them too. I understand that this wouldn’t work for everybody, and that some would disapprove, but even the teens vocalize that it’s really about sharing and unwinding in a pleasant way.

    At the end of the day when my children are in bed my husband and I have some quiet time together.  We snuggle and  watch TV and just talk about our day.  It is our time to just reconnect after a hectic day (which is almost everyday).  It really helps me recharge for the next day.

    Family game night, although it happens less and less as our girls get older, our last one with many rousing games of crockanole on a board my wonderful husband made was soul enhancing.

    cindy says:

    At the end of a long day, I like to make a hot beverage, put on relaxing music and stretch. Just getting my body warmed up and loosening up everything that has tightened up during the day helps me relax and drift off to sleep and re-set for the next challenge!

    A walk through the neighborhood while listening to some light jazz is what I need after a stressful day – then I am ready for whatever the rest of the evening throws at me.

    Bath bomb from Lush or part of a bubble bar; candles all around, speakers and my iPod….. 

    And ofcourse a bath!

    That’s only once every blue moon though. So each day I’d say my destressing technique is cooking a lovely meal, cleaning up, and putting my feet up. I’m a single mama in NZ and it ain’t easy but it’s so worth it. I’m growing corn, cherry tomatoes, grapes, lemons, blueberries and cranberries… Watering them is also destressing xx

    I get a hot cup of tea and read a good book!

    Oh, it’s been one of those weeks! As a mom of two wild boys (4 and 2) and with another boy imminently on the way (hopefully I have a few more days before he arrives), I need time in the evenings to sit in the quietude of my house and listen to subtle sounds. My husband has been working late, so I sit in the quiet and I knit. I love the feel of the soft yarn moving rhythmically through my fingers, the soft click of the needles, the slow growth of something useful, I love creating something I can share with others. I love the simplicity and the time for reflection.

    I have all kinds of de-stress techniques: dancing around to Disney songs with my daughter, chopping vegetables, red wine, sweeping, painting/drawing superheroes with my husband, singing really loud!

    now that i’m in the states where the weather’s different from singapore, after a long day i take a slow walk back from class instead of brisk walking, then come home to a nice hot cup of tea or hot chocolate and take my time to make my own dinner, before washing up and hanging out on skype to call family and friends back home. i look forward to our hour-long conversations every night!

    Elizabeth says:

    As a single-mom getting a Ph.D., de-stress time is often tricky.  However, now that my daughter is older, it’s way easier.  This month, we started what we call “Hiking Club” and we go out for a 3-5ish mile hike every Sunday afternoon.  Sometimes we summit mountains, sometimes we marvel at waterfalls, sometimes we trip on the trail and fall and then giggle.  It is a HUGE gift to me and I have found I start the week fresh and ready to go after “Hiking Club.”  🙂

    I will go for a run along my favorite trail. This trail is so beautiful rain or shine. It has all of the peaceful elements needed to release stress. It’s not near the road, It follows the water, it passes through farm land (so I can say hello to the horses), It’s filled with happy birds and in the summer the hot air balloons pass over me. Its hard to be stressed when surrounded by all of those things.

    Coral M. says:

    To de-stress I like to make a big pot of coffee, find a sunny ray coming through the window and lay in the light with my dog! It works wonders to re-charge with sunlight and a puppy!

    ilse says:

    I do many things depending in how I feel, such as exercise, go to the beach, read some books and go messy with some painting. But something I will always try to incorporate every time I can is to live the moment. I switch off from what ever happen during my day and what ever it its to come.
    This allows me to enjoy every little detail of whatever I’m doing or the people around me.

    I destress by taking a brisk walk (sans kids), then cooking a fun meal with my family.

    Noma says:

    I come home, grab a bag of chips, crawl into a blanket, and watch the Bachelor. I have a love hate relationship with that show, but its the perfect thing to take my mind off a hectic day.

    Chryselle says:

    I’ve recently installed the Kindle app on my smartphone and now I can sneak in a chapter (or four) whenever I have the time. Whether it is in the bathroom or while waiting for something, I am never without something to read and after years of not having the energy to carry a book around, having an abundance to choose from is such an enormous blessing! Thank goodness for technology 🙂

    Two words… Kitten time.  I have two new kittens, brother and sister, from a shelter.  I come home and then scamper on my lap, purring, and cuddling.  One of the best feelings after a long day 🙂

    Jessica says:

    This is really specific: my husband and I order takeout and eat it on the couch while playing cards and watching a favorite show. (arrested development!!). Because its so much at once, I’m literally unable to focus on anything else! And it’s all my favorite things at once, things I usually don’t have time during stressful weeks.

    ELIZA ELLIOT says:

    I exercise!!  I love going to the gym by myself for a nice hour! Come back completely refreshed and empowered.

    Emma L says:

    I try not to take work home with me, making my home a work-free (and thus less likely to become stressful) environment. Sometimes stress does follow me across the doorstep, though, and then I have a choice: either I exercise to get rid of it, or I make a cup of tea and spend a few minutes actively thinking through my stress. It is astonishing how much a few minutes of active reflection can help deflect and deflate those big balloons of stress. The power of the mind, indeed!

    Susanna B. says:

    Glass of wine and a chance to chat with my husband.

    I distress after a long day or week by going on a walk all through our neighborhood with my husband and my dog. We even walk all in the snow!! Great exercise and I talk through my stress. AND CHAI SPICE BLACK TEA! 🙂

    Meg T says:

    I just had my fourth child last week so stress kind of comes with the territory of being a new mom to a little brood. MAKING myself go to bed early (even if I think I really want to catch up on that show) always brings my overall stress down and driving around with the windows down and music up always, always brightens my mood.

    I like to go to my local coffee shop and sketch. It is somehow very relaxing to be lost in my own mind while enjoying some coffee with a sweet pastry.
