Relax on National Relaxation Day

Happy #NationalRelaxationDay! I think we should all be celebrating. Which is why I’ve put together a list of tips on how to unwind and relax. Because I know some of you out there don’t even know HOW to do that, take it from the master of relaxing, it’s the best. I’m a pro at napping and just chilling. It should be the top skill on my resume.

  1. Keep work at work, if you can. I went through this a couple years ago. I would work my full day at work, and then come home and work a few hours at home. Every.Single.Day. It was hell. I cried. A lot. So if it’s at all possible, keep work and home separate.
  2. Change into comfy clothes when you get home. It’s literally what I do as soon as I walk through my door. Those shorts and a t-shirt get thrown on ASAP.
  3. Meditate. I still haven’t gotten into this. And it’s the middle of August and I said I wanted to try it this month. But I’ve heard good things about this helping to relax others.
  4. Get a massage. From your s.o. or from a professional. Or have your kids walk on your back. I don’t know, that last one doesn’t sound too relaxing. But the first two do!
  5. Read a good book. Get lost in that book. Tune out the real world. It’s a good time.
  6. Apply a face mask. Or a foot mask. Or a hand mask. Or a lip mask. Or a hair mask. Or hell, all of the above at the same time. Get yo mask on!
  7. Write in a journal. For some people, writing can be very therapeutic. It’s one of the many reasons I do it. Now, you don’t have to go and put it online for the world to see like I do. But just writing your thoughts down on paper can really relax you!
  8. Binge watch something funny. My suggestions? The Office, Arrested Development, Jane the Virgin, Friends, The Good Place, or Grace & Frankie.
  9. Eat your favorite dessert. It’ll help in the moment. Maybe not in the long run, but hey, we all deserve some ice cream sometimes!
  10. Go for a run. If you’re one of those crazies who become more relaxed while running, go do it! I am not one of those people.
  11. Order takeout. Nothing is more relaxing than NOT having to cook for yourself. Make someone else do it.
  12. Watch the sunset. Nothing is more peaceful than watching a beautiful sunset. And that’s a fact.
