    I don't think I can...not that I don't try. I work hard at relaxing yet never seem to find that magic off button.

    Playing guitar

    Not usually. I'm the world's worst multi-tasker when it comes to anything that requires more attention than eating. I wish I could, though.

    Oh, and I have another thing to add: taking a nice long bath, with a book of course.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    On my downtime, I prefer seclusion:

    Photography/Art/Design
    :
    I love taking photographs of anything random (kinda like David Carson) or anything scenic, sketching, watercolor, digital design.. to my favorite music of course.

    Bookstore:
    Print out coupons and run to the bookstore to browse my fav. sections. Afterwards, I like to go home/snuggle in bed to my new book.

    Exercise:
    Long walks/jogs at the beach (sometimes with Beagle). Most times I hit the gym.

    Cooking:
    Stress release. I like to cook, not bake (baking frustrates me, not unless it's Sara Lee lol).

    Other:
    Nice long baths/candle-light, watch my favorite DVDs, play video games, bug the Beagle..

    Who knows? If I were to be completly objective I'd say SJs or SPs need the most because they spend SO much time doing SOMETHING. My mom just cannot sit down and relax. She claims she doesn't need it but sometimes I wonder..

    Other than that, I'd say the need for down time/relaxation is an Introverts trait.

    When I need some downtime, I usually...

    Exercise! Take a walk or bike ride. Or take my kayak out for some paddling!

    Read!

    Cook...

    Eat and Drink! Some chocolate or ice cream, with a cup of tea, a glass of wine, a beer, or some coffee!

    I engaged in all these activities this weekend actually--except cooking! And I'm feeling recharged and recentered now to start my week tomorow!
