If there’s one thing I love more than lazy Sunday’s, it’s being able to have lazy weekdays which I’ve had all this week due to reading week! I feel like that in this day and age, where we’re all connected to each other 24/7, it’s more important than ever to take a chill pill and some me time and have a break from the gruelling day to day goings on so I thought I’d share with you all by top 6 tips to winding down.
1. Turn off social media put down the iPhone and the iPad and the laptops people! This is a top for relaxing I feel but it’s also probably one of the hardest to do. Trust me though, taking a step back from the internet, even if it’s for a few hours, can do you the world of good. Plus, when you come back to your phone there’s more than 5 new instagram updates! It’s a win win.
2. Take a bath put all the lush products you can get your hands on and lie back and listen to the radio or a playlist of your choice and feel all the tension in your body disappear into the bubbles. One thing I really miss when I’m at uni is having baths but taking a nice hot shower can work just as well.
3. Read a book I find nothing more relaxing than getting lost in a good book! If your stuck for something to read, I recommend reading Since you’ve been gone, stater for ten and we were liars.
4. Go on a walk if your mind is full to the brim, take a walk. Breathe in the fresh air and take in the world around you. I always feel relaxed after doing on dog walks
5. Yoga I love doing yoga and always feels less stressed after doing it and I feel great
6. Listen to Music I love searching into spotify acoustic covers and listening to acoustic covers of my favourite songs. I also love listening to classical versions of songs I love too, one of my favourite artists being The Piano Guys
