1. Taking a bath
Showering is quick, but let's hold it off. Soaking in warm water soothes the mind and lessen the body strain. Use some scented candles or a bath bomb to give a slight boost of ease. Lush has one of the best bath bombs with real benefits. Plus, adding music or reading to your bath time is a must because it feels like you're away from reality.
Those adorable pets sure make you happy. Science has proven that house pets is a quick way to relieve stress. I mean who doesn't love these fluffy animals that comfort you whenever you need it. I personally love my sissy's cat whenever he's around in the house. Makes me stop thinking about my bad day.
3. Lay off on electronics
Yep, that means your phone, computer, and tablet. I know it can be hard having a day without your social media, but let's face it. Studies have shown that computer screens tires your eyes and increases anxiety. So, at least stay away from technology for an hour. You need the mind to stay healthy.
5. Doing yoga
Balancing out the heavy days with good yoga stretches. Yoga has so many benefits such as perfecting your flexibility/strength, better performance in workouts, and clears the mind, body, and soul. Plus, it helps you relaxing the muscles which encourages you to fall asleep. I like doing downward dog, cobra, cat stretch, and child's pose.
6. Taking a nap
If you didn't have proper sleep then this is a good opportunity to nap. Taking a nap clears your mind and increases breathing. Use a sleeping mask if you have trouble sleeping under afternoon times. And it's great to try calm music and a facial mask. Your skin and body will thank you for the relaxation. Daydreaming is consider napping, too. When your mind drifts off somewhere, it means that it needs to turn off for a few minutes. It's not consider a distraction so take the opportunity wherever you are.
There you have it. A few tips that I've been doing and loving for years. Some suggestions for you guys because everyone has different ways to (de)stress. Remember that to be stress-free is to not procrastinate and manage your time wisely.
See ya next time! Ciao ^__^
