Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Life - - DOWNTIME AND ME -

Ac­tress I’m great at re­lax­ing. I’m not one of those peo­ple who doesn’t know how to switch off or un­wind. And I’m a big fan of a cheeky nap. I like to take my dog up to the dog park near our house and just sit on a bench, watch­ing her sniff and wan­der. I don’t bring my phone or a book. I just take in the trees and the breeze.

Thai mas­sages are an­other favourite way for me to re­lax. Some­times it gets a lit­tle painful as they pum­mel, prod and walk on top of me! But af­ter­wards, I al­ways feel in­cred­i­bly re­laxed.

I med­i­tate nearly ev­ery day — well, I try to — so I get a bub­ble of me-time be­fore my day be­gins. I’ve found that is a great way to com­bat stress.

Oh, and cook­ing. I love to cook, and if I’m not starv­ing while I’m do­ing it, I find it very ther­a­peu­tic!
