Sometimes it can be really hard to switch off, de stress and relax after a long day of work, emails and social media. It can all get a bit much for one girl to handle. Here are a few of our tips on winding down when you really need to.
Tackle Things Head On: Now this may sound weird as trying to unwind usually means trying to not think about an endless to-do list however this is something a little different. You know the other list of things you’ve been meaning to do but haven’t because life gets in the way sometimes? (everybody has one) pour yourself a nice glass of wine and accomplish all those little things that are so easy to forget to do; book the long overdue doctors appointment, put a little bit more money into that savings account or jump online and pay the phone bill. You will feel so amazing after doing this one little thing or the list of things that can easily be forgotten. Little things off your mind = relaxation time.
Clear Out: It is always said that a clear room means a clear mind and sometimes cleaning up a little bit can be so therapeutic. Whether it is just cleaning out a desk drawer or making Monica from Friends look unorganised. If you aren’t feeling up to the task of cleaning or organising your surroundings have a tech inspired clean up and delete those year old emails and organise the folders on your computer to sort through what is worth keeping; photos from your 18th birthday yes, the 10 receipts of ASOS orders you’ve received and worn… not so much.
Workout: This is on a few thousand advice lists. I need to listen to it too… Exercise is so therapeutic and it is true how they say it can be helpful in de stressing and unwinding for the day. It gets you focused on your body and you sweat it out to feel 100% better afterwards. How good is the feeling after you finishing going for a run or doing some yoga. Nothing can beat it.
Treat Your Self: After the really long stressful days it is so nice to come home and treat yourself to a bubble bath, a movie and ice cream or an early nights sleep. You really do deserve it.
Long days can be extremely tedious but with these things to look forward to your next one won’t be so bad.
