How Do You Relax?
**Disclosure: This is a post written by me on behalf of United HealthCare. All thoughts and opinions, as always, are my own.
Okay wait a second – we’re halfway through December. How the heck did this happen? It seems like just yesterday I was announcing my pregnancy here on Fit & Awesome and now our baby is due sometime before the end of the year. Where did 2014 go? This is just crazy!
The holidays are always a crazy time of year with parties, family time, gift shopping, and spending time volunteering and giving back. All the hustle and bustle can really take it’s toll on you. That’s why it’s important to remember to RELAX! Yes, it’s true. I am so guilty of making myself so busy I could scream, but now in the final days of my pregnancy I’ve had to force myself to learn to relax. And that’s what this month’s dare from Source4Women is all about – relaxing!
If you’re unfamiliar with Source 4Women, it’s a community created by United Healthcare that provides healthy living information on things like nutrition exercise, health screenings and more for women. Every month they do a photo contest to encourage you to live a healthy and active lifestyle. This month’s photo challenge is to upload a photo of how you relax. This is the photo I uploaded:
Right now taking walks along the beach and watching the waves has been a great source of relaxation for me. That and taking warm baths! Oh, pregnancy. I noticed a lot of people this month have uploaded photos of their favorite sunsets. These are my type of people! Here are some of my favorites from the gallery this month:
- Relaxing next to a waterfall
- Sweet doggie relaxing
- Relaxing by the beach
- Watching the Sunrise
- Watching the Sunset
The Giveaway – Win a Kindle Fire Tablet!
Every month there is a prize on the We Dare You site valued at $400. In addition to this, you have the opportunity to win an additional prize by entering through Fit & Awesome. This month we’ve decided to give away a Kindle Fire Tablet! Why? Because when I think about relaxing I think of doing things that quiet my mind such as reading, sleeping, enjoying a beautiful sunset, or watching a movie. While I can’t bottle up a beautiful sunset and offer it as a prize, I can offer a brand new tablet device is great for reading and watching movies. What can I say, since I’ve been pregnant I’ve been a big fan of reading and watching videos on my own tablet and now I want to share the love!
