What do you do to relax and unwind at the end of the day?

At the end of a hard day, what do you do to unwind?

Do you like to read, take a bath or maybe you play video games or spend time on the computer?

Some people will make phone calls to chat. Others will exercise to get rid of stress.

What do you?

Tami I use to get in tub BUT since I am unable to get down in tub now can not enjoy that.
But love to read and of course be on here. I also have a TV right here by my desk so am listening/watching some programs.
Good thread
I will take what I am served knowing someone out there is being served MUCH less

I'm usually on the computer by 9pm if not earlier, watching/listening to the TV and before I actually go to bed I usually read for a bit. Funny thing-I will start to fall asleep while on the computer, but when I get off to go to bed I wake right up, so I have to read to get sleepy again.

My hubby and I like to watch TV together, especially now that the weather is turning so darn cold. My computer is right beside me so I can multi task! I like to read when I go to bed.
We all get heavier as we get older,
because there's a lot more information in our heads.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I like to watch TV while knitting or crocheting something. If there is nothing good on, I will read.

Mine would be to read, to watch tv or to do a craft of some sort.

My "me" time is reading. My great escape from everything. My close second it being on the computer.
