Your favorite relaxing/de stressing routine

Can I ask what your favorite relaxing routine is?

Do you have a favorite video (like yoga video) you love to follow? Do you have Favorite instructor(s) that helps with de stressing?

Or do you do something else? Perhaps you make a point to have 20 minutes of quiet time with lavender tea, or get a massage?

I feel like i have so much tension, and I want to get rid of it.

I get up very early to have alone time. I drink coffee, write in my journal and do a short guided meditation. Often I do my workout right after. I love starting my day this way. I just feel GOOD.

If I'm stressed or agitated in the day I will often listen to a short guided relaxation or meditation.

Most of Eoin Finn's Blissology DVD series (just not the strength DVD!) is very relaxing as is his fabulous Ukee Summer Flow podcast (do a Google search and stream it from one of the podcast sites) which is my all-time favorite stretchy yoga practice which flows but only has a few sun salutations in the warm-up. I also really enjoy the Yogatopia DVD, an oldie but goodie from Litsa Kapantais.

Knitting or crochet or embroidery. If stress has been bad, prayer and writing in my journal.

I like Kundalini Yoga to Detox & Destress by Maya Fiennes. It’s very relaxing and I always feel wonderful/blissful afterwards. It’s a bit different, so it took me a couple of times before I could really relax while doing it and get the full benefits. Most of the workout is done with your eyes closed. Sometimes I just do the warmup part. The breath work is very relaxing.
Here’s a clip:
Nuture your mind with great thoughts.
To believe in the heroic makes heroes.

Your disposition will be suitable to
that which you most frequently think on; for the soul is, as it were,
tinged with the color and complexion of its own thoughts.
-Marcus Antoninus
