Every once in a while, you get burnt out. Life gets crazy and busy, and you just need something to make you feel refreshed. There are those times that you come across every so often that simply make you feel like a new person. With the holidays coming up, everyone is looking forward to getting some breaks from life and time to relax. Perhaps these instances will sound familiar.
1. Getting a new haircut.
Getting a new haircut is an incredible feeling. Somehow, your hair stylist works some sort of magic that takes a weight off of you and makes you feel as though you can conquer the world. Even if you don't love the haircut, it will grow out...right?
2. Finding a great new item of clothing that fits like nothing else you own.
Nothing beats feeling like you're working it in an article of clothing, right? If you find that great blazer that makes you feel like a million bucks, then you feel like you can conquer anything.
3. Ending a semester of school.
Ending a semester is somewhat bittersweet, but mostly sweet. It means that you can take some time to do what you want to do, for once. You can relax and not feel guilty about binging Netflix for an entire day. Maybe you can get a jump on those new projects that got put on the back burner.
4. Traveling somewhere new.
Traveling somewhere new is exhausting, but when you get to experience a whole new place it's a special experience. Soaking up somewhere new teaches you a lot about yourself, and humbles you in reminding you what a small part of this world you really are.
5. Taking a bath.
Bath lovers, do you feel me? Taking a bath with a bath bomb and relaxing seems to melt all of your stress away. It's a great escape, even if it's only for 20 minutes. Baths are especially great when it's cold outside.
6. Cleaning your space.
I know this sounds stressfull, but this is actually an awesome way to feel refreshed. Cleaning is so therapeutic and it takes away any guilt you feel from not having a clean space.
7. Spending the holidays surrounded by close family and friends.
Nothing is more refreshing than simply enjoying the people around you and the time you have with them. Friends and family give you perspective and remind you of the important things in life.
Hopefully this gives you some ideas on how to spend your time feeling refreshed. Feeling like a new person means you can be at your best and give what you are passionate about everything you've got.
