Do You Know How to Relax?

In today's world many couples work 14-16 hour days and when they come home they have work in the home and yard, grocery shop, and do other chores and errands.  If you ask a doctor we need to stop this destructive behavior and learn to relax more in order to have good health.
One way to force yourself to relax is to book a stay at a bed and breakfast.  Choose one that is not in the middle of a busy city.  Don't get on the Internet to explore where to shop, what to see, what to do, etc.  Book that bed and breakfast as a destination.  Pack yourself a "stress buster kit".  Your kit should include some books and magazines, comfortable clothing, some bath salts, and a bottle of wine (or your favorite beverage).  You might even challenge yourself to leave any televisions turned off and focus on de-stressing.
Many people don't think of booking a bed and breakfast as a destination and yet it can be so relaxing.  Many bed and breakfasts offer massage therapy in your guest room which gives you one more way to beat the stress.  Your innkeeper will pamper you with some great breakfasts and can recommend some very peaceful dining options for lunch and dinner.
At bed and breakfasts like Garden Gate Get-A-Way Bed & Breakfast in Amish Country, Ohio, you will find porch swings where you can sit outside and view flower gardens plus each evening you can gather around a campfire with other B&B guests and watch the stars come out.  Flowers and campfires definitely can promote relaxation.
Write yourself a prescription for good health and book yourself a stay at a bed and breakfast and go there as a destination.
