Ways To De-Stress And Wind Down



There is nothing more relaxing than winding down on those really stressful days, doing a mini pamper to make you feel good and having a good nights sleep so you can wake up feeling refreshed.


1. Set the atmosphere - Rather than having bright ceiling lights on, dim the lights and light some candles. Maybe put some relaxing music on too.

2. Take a bath or a shower - I love to do this first. It makes me feel so relaxed and refreshed. Once I get out the shower I love to smother my body in lotion, put on comfy pj's and my fluffy dressing gown and sit in my clean fresh bed.

3. Write it down - If you're head is filled with a million things, going round and round, write it down. I've been doing this lately and it helps a lot. I put everything in lists, bullet points and tick things off, any reminders for upcoming events, what I need to do for the next day. Try it if you haven't done it yet, let me know if it works for you.

4. Distraction - Now I know this can sometimes be hard, which is why I mentioned writing things down first to hopefully get you in the right head space. I like to either watch some Netflix in bed with my favourite drink, read a book, listen to music or play some games on my phone.

5. Go for a walk - This is something I like to do a lot. If I can't sleep and I get restless, having too much on my mind, I go out for a walk to my local park. Just me, myself and I, and normally I like to phone my best mate, Ben for a long chat, poor guy must be getting sick and tired of me phoning every night, haha! Just kidding, that's what friends are for, vice versa.

6. Talk to friends and family - That is why I mentioned about me phoning a friend. I find that talking to someone about what's going on, how you are feeling or any problems you have makes you feel a lot better. Yes, maybe they wont have an answer for you, this can be pretty frustrating especially when you need an answer to all your problems, but I find talking about stuff can feel like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders. I used to feel like I never wanted to talk to my friends because I felt like I would be bugging them, but remember, you would listen to them if it was the other way round, and if they really didn't want to listen, they wouldn't be your friend.
