10 things to help you relax.

WORK, EAT, SLEEP! A cycle we are all guilty of being trapped in.

I've been off work for the last week due to being ill and having annual leave, I have never been so bored. I can't relax because that means doing nothing most of the time, which means getting bored very quickly. Trying to occupy yourself with other blogs and youtube videos soon gets repetitive and pretty exhausting. You seem to start comparing yourself to everyone else and how you can improve your blog. 

Don't even get me started on the amount of money you start spending, you get sucked into this world of online shopping! You end up on websites you've never heard of and suddenly lusting after items you'll never need in life. Doesn't stop you though, does it.

I had to create a list for myself just so I stopped looking at blogs and buying pointless items that in a few days I would have forgotten I even ordered.

1. Have a bath. Add bubbles, add any Lush bath bomb or bath melt you can find. Just chuck it all in, why not? You might be there for a good hour or two.

2. Read a book. Personally this isn't something I do. It takes a good book for me to really get into it. I might just have to try it though, people always look relaxed when reading. 

3. Lay in bed for 20 minutes or so. Don't sleep... although that is inevitable if you're anything like me.

4. Go for a walk somewhere really beautiful. You can take tons of photos and it gives you time to clear your head. 

5. Watch Netflix/TV. 1 hour, 2 hours, 3. Who cares? Take advantage of being able to do that. 

6. Light some candles and incense. Again this helps you clear your head and is a quick fix to feeling less stressed.

7. Cook/Bake your favourite dish. You get to eat what you've made at the end of it, what better reason is there.

8. Spend time with your friends. You'll probably have a laugh and naturally that makes everything feel a little bit better.

9. Pamper yourself. It's time consuming on those days you're bored and you're left feeling pretty damn good after.

10. Blog/Write about your day. If you're anything like me writing about your day so far or what is worrying you is so fulfilling. It makes me feel relaxed and gives you time to think about lots of things! I guess sometimes that isn't such a great thing but other times it is great.

So just take a break, recuperate and don't get stuck in that nasty cycle.
