Honestly, life is hard. If you don't take a moment to catch your breath in the midst of the fast-paced day to day of life, it could really wear you down. Here are 8 ways you can help yourself relax a bit.
1. Spend some time reading.Giphy
Reading is such a good way to feed your brain some good information and doesn't demand intense focus in the way that academic reading does.
2. Watch a feel-good movie.Giphy
My personal favorites are "Up" and "Spirited Away."
3. Stay hydrated.Giphy
Being dehydrated can sometimes make you cranky. Get in that H2O!
4. Treat your skin to some cooling face masks.Giphy
Clear skin = Clear sense of mind
5. Get those gains in.Giphy
Workout to your favorite jams, and feel good and healthy.
6. Practice gratitude.Giphy
Write down three things that you're grateful for.
7. Treat yo’self.Giphy
Buy yourself something luxurious because you're worth it, and you deserve it.
Who doesn't love some good eight to ten hours of zzz's? Sleep helps you recover and replenishes your energy!
It's hard to go on auto-pilot every single moment of your life. Slow down, and take in everything around you. It's not selfish to invest in yourself and your self-care. Love yo'self!!
