It’s Week 33 of the #MFRWauthor 52-Week Blog Challenge and this week’s prompt is What I Do To Recharge.
Since I no longer have a day job, I have the luxury of taking evenings off, most of the time. I’ve found that if I write (or think too much about my current WIP) that I don’t sleep well. Since I sometimes don’t sleep well anyway for no apparent reason, I prefer a relaxing evening in front of the boob tube. Since we already blogged earlier this year about binge watching, I won’t go into specifics, but I will admit to binge watching the last season of Once Upon a Time this summer, since I managed to miss it during the year. I still love that show.
Lately I’ve been taking little breaks from my computer sessions to use the exercise wind bike my mother-in-law left me. A little exercise gets the heart going and shakes out the kinks a bit. It’s really not good to sit for too long at a time.
And once a month I get to sit for a pedicure and get my feet and lower legs massaged. Aaahhh, so relaxing. For the next month my toenails will be periwinkle blue.
What do you do to recharge?

I’ve been getting regular pedicures in the past year; I totally forgot to mention that! My toes were blue last fall, lol!
Mine were dark blue for 4th of July. It’s a fun thing to do.
I’ve only had one pedicure in my life. Love the look of it, but didn’t really enjoy having a stranger massaging my feet and legs. This would also be the reason I’ve never had a massage. Yeah, I know. I’m probably weird.
You’re not alone in that, Sherry. Not everyone likes a massage.
I forgot about pedicures! I love them also. So relaxing, and I’ve found a shop where I feel comfortable.
It is important to find a shop you like. I’m really happy with mine.
It’s been YEARS since I’ve had a pedicure. When I worked I use to get them and manicures all the time, now not so much.
I love a pedicure- and I’m overdue! Great post!
I sometimes wait too long, too, then the toenails don’t look too good.
Nope, never had a pedicure. Don’t plan to, either.
I hear about clearing my mind of my WIP before bedtime. I’ve lost countless hours of sleep that I could ill afford to lose.
My dad didn’t ever plan to visit a nail salon, but after my mom died, I took him periodically to get his toenails clipped. He never got the full pedicure though.
I think a lot of writers have trouble sleeping. Too many thoughts and people in our minds.
I agree about trying to sleep while working on a manuscript. I’ve been up earlier than usual the past few days because I’m plotting a book and can’t stop thinking about it. A pedicure now sounds like a great idea…
The stories kind of take over, don’t they. Happy plotting.
