Kick Your Feet Up & Relax
Yesterday it hit me how much I have been doing lately and how little time I have had to rest & kick my feet up. This encouraged me to write a post about some of the ways I have found rest in the past & use it as a way to remind myself + encourage others in steps to recharge. So here are some tips I have done in the past & hope to continue moving forward.
1. Unplug: Truthfully, as sad as it sounds this one is hard. I think mainly because a lot of what I am doing lately involves social media and technology. However, the times that I have unplugged I have felt so much pressure lifted from me. I am not sure if it's work pressure or the pressure of being the best you to everyone scrolling. Hmmm, something I'll have to think about.
2. Nap/Be Still: For some people napping is not an option which I understand...kind of. I mean napping is always an option if I can make it happen but I believe finding time to sit still & not being moving is so good for you. It allows for your body to rest & relax from the everyday routine.
3. Breathing Exercises: A few month ago I was starting my morning with breathing exercises and I must say they helped me out a ton! It truly started my day off on the right foot & allowed me to take on the day ahead will less stress & anxiousness.
4. Laugh: This will look different for everyone but laughing is so great when I need to relax. I personally will turn on an episode of Will & Grace or hang out with friends because that refuels me. I need laughter every day or something seems to be missing!
Let me know in the comments below some of the things you do to relax!
