It's National Relaxation Day. But on a TUESDAY?! Most of y'all are at work.
If you're like me, Type A, ambitious, product of this capitalist society and don't really know HOW to rest, then try to:
1.Take a nap today, even for 20 minutes. See how it feels.
2.Read an audiobook. And that's it. Don't be "productive" as you read.
3.Lay down and daydream for 30 minutes. Just let your mind drift.
4.Check out these book recs for tips on how to relax and chill out.
