As we head towards the festive season life only gets more manic. Not only do you have a million and one work projects to wrap up, but your social calendar is likely to quickly fill up during the week as well as at weekends. You can feel obligated to go to so many different events and social gatherings and soon it can get a bit too much. This is all on top of trying to go to the gym, do your other hobbies and catch up with your friends, family members and partner if you have one. By the time Friday rolls around you can feel drained both physically and emotionally and be looking for some ways you can relax. In this article we take a look at some tips to help you unwind.
Book in for a spa break
As soon as you enter a spa and the relaxing scents of essential oils hit your nose you can feel instantly at peace. Spa breaks can be as indulgent or as simple as you like, but just having an excuse to get away and focus on your wellbeing will be a really big help. When you are on your break try and forget about work and home stress and just let yourself be pampered. Book in for a massage, go for a swim, have a workout in the gym and eat food that is good for you. You will feel a lot better once you have!
Have a digital detox
We are on some sort of digital device so often nowadays that often we don’t even realise it. Whether it’s looking at our phones constantly, watching something on TV, going on a tablet or iPad or being on a laptop, there’s not much time when we aren’t focused on something electrical. While they have their benefits, it’s also good for you to have a break every now and then. Take time to step away from your devices, take a walk, read a book or have a bath. You will find your head feels a lot lighter after!
Plan for some “Me-time”
Me-time is so important. When you get to indulge in doing whatever you want to make yourself feel happy. This could be baking, taking some CBD such as Naturecan’s CBD gummies to relax or going to the gym. The important thing here is to think about what will make you feel like you and do something you might not get to all the time. Whether this is an hour a day or a few hours at the weekend, it all helps.
These are just a few things you can do that can help you to unwind after a manic week and get a fresh start before Monday rolls around again. Don’t be afraid to say no to people – social obligations can get a bit much – and always put your own mental and physical health first.
