What do people do when they rest? Do you read, write, draw or sleep? Interested in activities and different options for rest times.

  • I have an electrical adjustable bed (so head and foot end can go up) and love to read in bed. I do like a nap too.

  • I lie down for 10 – 15 minutes and find that it helps me feel rested.

  • I read. Do puzzles for competitions. Watch tv. Sleep is by far the best way for me to rest and relax

  • I hate to say it but I am fairly simple. I either try to nap, watch Netflix (or catch up tv) or read a book. I love rereading book series and I am currently re reading Harry Potter ????

  • I don’t get to at the moment but I love to read or watch movies.

  • U read a little every day. I watch a lot of movies when I can and my kids relax and watch them with me.

  • I love to read and try and finish half started projects of mine.

  • If I am very very tired , I like to have a bit of a nap if convenient . Otherwise having a cup of tea or going for a walk is good .

  • Sleep, watch tv, read a book or magazine…these are things I WOULD do if i could rest. Unfortunately with four kids, resting is an imaginative state for Hubby and I,

  • I like to sit down with a hot cup of tea and do puzzles. Usually in the magazines Take5 and ThatsLife

  • Reading, playing with my dogs, a bit of PS4, or Crosstitch.
    It’s been a while though!

  • What is this rest you speak of? Haha
    I try and have some quiet time and just scroll through facebook or watch tv atleast for 5 mins a day to rest

  • Oh yes, checking what other mums do, I also like to rest while reading here in Mouths of Mums, or in Facebook…

  • try to watch my favourite tv shows or play mobile games to unwind

  • well i like to keep busy or stimulated so i will go for a walk, play games, surf the net, get on social media, catch up on tv, catch up with friends, window shop lol.
