I spent the majority of my holiday vacation relaxing. About halfway through the break I started feeling guilty (big surprise) for not being productive and neglecting all my grown-up responsibilities….i.e. blog writing, working out, flossing, getting up before 10am, etc. etc.
I made myself feel a little better by making hand-made invitations for my sister’s baby shower, but laziness soon overcame me again. That’s when I came across this quote on Facebook:
Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted.
That was all I needed to hear…or read… to thoroughly enjoy the rest of my week. Immediately, I went to a friend’s house, played a few board games and then spent the rest of the night relaxing in a sauna.
Don’t we look relaxed and peaceful? The sauna was awesome for about 15 minutes. Then, we had to run outside and stand in the snow for a good 5 minutes before getting back into the 140 degrees temperatures.
We have a Finnish friend who uses saunas on a daily basis. Apparently exercising and relaxing in a sauna is a part of daily life in Finland. It is about time we start adopting this tradition, or some other similar relaxing and warm activity. What do you think?
Hope you all had time to unwind and enjoy yourselves over the holidays!
