We all love a good relaxation session, right? Relaxing is a huge part of self care and as you know that’s something I’m working on this year, in various different ways. We all have our own ways of relaxing, some will work better for me than they will for you, and vice versa. I’m no expert, but today I thought I’d share with you my three ways of relaxing which helps boost my productivity; in hope that they may help you too!
Have a nice bath & pamper session
Lately, I’ve been making sure I take some time out at least once a week to treat myself to a nice bath and a pamper session, usually on a Thursday or Friday. I run myself a nice hot bath, like the crazy girl hot that no man can seem to understand, pop in a nice lush bath bomb or some bubble bath and just lie there and day dream, or fall asleep. Sometimes I even treat myself and put my laptop on top of the toilet with Netflix on, y’know. It helps me feel squeaky clean, silky smooth and ready to conquer the world.
Go for a walk
I always find that when Nathan and I go for a nice walk on a Sunday, it really does help me sort my head out and plan my week. Having a relaxing Sunday evening definitely does help my productivity throughout the week. Although, I haven’t really figured out to get over the Sunday night/Monday morning blues just yet; but watch this space!
Read a book
I will be the first to admit that I definitely do not appreciate how amazing it is to get lost in a new book. I don’t read often enough, and this is definitely something I want to change throughout this year because its amazing how inspired you can come away from reading something you love.
I used to be one of these people that would kick myself for relaxing, because I thought it was taking time away from my to-do lists and it would push me behind schedule. But what I’ve learnt lately is that if I plan it right, taking time out for myself boosts my motivation and helps my productivity in the long run.
Do any of these work for you? If not let me know what does in the comments or tweet me!
