One favorite way to unwind after a stressful day is to take a bath or shower. I personally love taking baths. Throw some in epsom salt and lavender essential oil into it and it will help calm you down. Not only soothing but it will help release toxins in your body. Detox baths have been know to strengthen our immune system and prevent disease. All around you can feel the difference emotionally and physically when you take a detox bath.
Set the mood. Play some light jazz music that has positive messages attached to it. Remember to light some candles. This will help you get into the mood of taking a bath, in case you are not a bath person.
Spending time with a good friend is a great way to unwind. A good friend is a friend that makes us laugh, is trustworthy with our vulnerable life messes and challenges us to keep moving forward. They can help us find clarity through helpful insight.
Friends that give us a new perspective can open our minds to see possibility and opportunity. They can allow us to vent about our day or push us to go out and have a fun night of adventuring. Be picky about who you choose to hang out with. Friends that are helpful are essential.
Read a book that encourages, challenges and inspires you. This can be a great way to unwind after a tough day. Reading isn’t for everyone but it should be. There are many health benefits to reading. It has been known to strengthen your memory, helps with your vocabulary and it boosts your mood.
Go to bed early or a reasonable time. Sometimes in life, what we need most is sleep. If we can shut off the bad day through sleep that can be helpful for our mental clarity. Having a consistent, set time each night is important because it helps us think with more understanding and clarity. Hopefully, if you have done any of the things I mentioned above, you will be in a more relaxed mood and ready for bed.
