Sometimes we get so busy with work, school, family and the everyday hustle and bustle of life that we get “stressed out, over worked, uptight, and wound up” to take a minute and indulge in ourselves. This has been a very busy summer for me, working 5 days a week in a
, and trying to balance my career with my personal life. Let’s not even mention my so-called “love life.” new city
Despite all of this, it’s important to me that I take days to myself, scheduled for relaxation. Upon roaming around my new neighborhood in
Queens, I found a nail shop that does manicures for $6! Yes, that is not a typo! They merely charge the same price as a $5 footlong! I have made it my business to get a manicure every week! They do a really great job, I relax and read magazines and talk to my manicurist Deena about reality T.V. shows. You’ll be surprised how relaxing it is!
As I mentioned earlier, I often find new places by roaming around. I think taking a walk is very valuable. You’re getting exercise as well as fresh air! There’s nothing more refreshing than getting out of the house, away from the computer or away from your desk at work. I often take walks during my lunch break at work.
Speaking of food! I love food! And I love to eat! Who doesn’t? Treat yourself to whatever it is that you’re craving at the moment! For me, its frozen pizza! Don’t ask why, but I’ve been eating cheese pizza I popped out the oven in 15 minutes and curled up on the couch watching YouTube Beauty Gurus or reality TV! That’s my type of night!
I do manage to explore other neighborhoods though by transit. Don’t worry the ride won’t seem painstaking if you read a good book along the way. I’ve conformed! I’m currently reading Fifty Shades of Grey & I must say BELIEVE THE HYPE! I want a Christian Grey in my life! I have it on my ibooks app on my Iphone 4!
