We all get a little stressed out from time to time, am I right? It might be work piling on the pressure, it might be that you feel like you have too much on your plate, commitments you have made, things you need to do. It can often feel too much and people can get very overwhelmed. But, when things get a little hectic a day off is normally in order, but how can you truly benefit from the time away? I wanted to share with you some of the things you could consider doing.
Book a day at the spa
One of the first things to consider doing would be booking a day at the spa. This is the ultimate in relaxation. Enabling you to sit in peace and quiet, perhaps indulge in a treatment or two and really relax. Places like Glam at The Grove AVEDA offer some great options that you could consider. Maybe it is the sounds you hear there, maybe it is the fragrance that wafts the corridors or rooms, or maybe it is just the excuse to put your phone away and get lost in your thoughts. Whatever it is, a spa can really help you relax those stresses away.
Binge watch a TV box set
When was the last time you got stuck in a really good box set? Something that had you on the edge of your seat waiting for the next episode to start? Not all of us get the time to indulge in the TV, so why not use a day off to catch up with the latest releases? It allows you to sit comfortably and focus on just what you are watching.
Get some more shut-eye
Sleep is one of those things I think everyone could do more of, so why not use your day off to indulge in the ultimate lie in? Switch the alarm off, don’t get up unless you have to, even enjoy breakfast in bed or your morning coffee watching a little daytime TV. The rest could really do you the world of good, and it can certainly be one of the ashiest ways to kickstart your day of relaxation.
Head out for a long walk in the fresh air
There is nothing quite like the fresh air and a bit of activity to relax your mind. It may sound like you are doing something energetic, but a stroll in the countryside, enabling you to just breath in and out, will do you the world of good. Walking is a light exercise-based activity, and it can have those endorphins pumped through your body, helping you to feel good as well.
Spend some time with people that lift your spirits
Finally, why not spend the day with positive people that uplift you and make you feel good by going on a women’s retreat? There will be certain friends and family members that do this and it is always good to get some time with them to relax and focus your thoughts on positive aspects of your life.
I hope that these suggestions help you make the most of your next day off.
