Top tips for relaxing and unwinding*
We’ve all been there, when it can feel like life is getting on top of us a bit too much every now and then. Whether you’ve been too busy with work, had family problems to solve or are just plain feeling a little bit stressed and worn out, there’s nothing more important than taking the time to relax and unwind and look after yourself. Here’s my top tips for relaxing and unwinding to help you feel calmer, healthier and back to yourself:
Treat yourself to a weekend break
One of the very best ways to escape the stresses and strains of everyday life is by getting away from it all on a weekend break. With so many amazing UK destinations to enjoy a relaxing weekend break you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding on where to go, take a look at the selection available at Great Little Breaks to get you feeling inspired. My personal favourites include Cornwall, especially in the summer months, and Wales. Getting out and about in the fresh air really does you a world of good and you’ll be sure to feel refreshed and energised on your return.
Indulge in a massage
Nothing says me time like a massage and if you’re a super busy person it’s the best way to completely de-stress without taking too much time out of your busy life. A back and shoulder massage tends to work best for me, getting rid of all the stress knots and tension but there are so many different types of massage you’ll definitely be able to find one that’s perfect for you.
Take up yoga
One thing that you can do every day to feel more relaxed and chilled out is a little yoga. With many free tutorials online you can do it from home in the comfort of your living room or, if you wanted to join a class, there’s sure to be several in your area. Not only does yoga help to keep your body in shape it also is really good for the mind and will help you to feel calmer and much more relaxed.
