My Favourite Ways to Wind Down

I feel like I’m an expert in unwinding. Only because I get so stressed out about every little thing that I have my personal tried and true methods for what helps me relax after a long day, week or even month!

 

  1. Reading
    If you’ve been reading this blog for a while it’s no secret that I love to read. The idea of escaping to another world full of mystery and suspense is, in my opinion, the best way to escape thinking about how Sally in work was mean to me today.
  2. Exercise
    I am a very recent convert to exercising to relieve stress. There was a time when I could think of nothing worse than going for a jog or a class when I was dead tired and all I wanted was my bed. But now I’ve seen the light. Pushing myself on the treadmill or kicking the sh*t out of that boxxing bag it gets all mu anger out and then I’m either too tired to care or my body is full of happy endorphins that calm me down!
  3. Theo Time
    Theo is the name of my very fat tabby cat. & I can’t possibly stay uptight when I see his little face trotting toward me to say hello after I’ve been out. If you don’t have a pet, I recommend you make friends with people that do!
  4. Journalling
    Again, this one is new to me! I’ve started a bullet journal & at first I was like a very unorganized fish out of water, I didn’t know how to use it! 3 months in, I’d be lying if I said I knew exactly what to do with it. But having somewhere to come and jot down all my thoughts and relefections on the day is pretty chill. I keep track of my mood form day to day and also any triggers that could have made me feel this way.
  5. Wine
    Okay, so this one isn’t really one I do daily. I promise. Once a week maybe bi-weekly I’ll pour myself a whopping big glass of red wine, invite some friends over and just chill out.

 

I want to know if you use any of these to wind down after work, school or life in general! But I especially want to know what you differently? Leave a comment!
