So what do you do to unwind??????
I really want to know!!!! It may give others great ideas none of us have thought of!
This post will be filled with loads of photos as I think it may be the best way to show you the things you could do to unwind!
They will include things to do as a single, married and family. Hopefully something that is in your budget will catch your eye!
The first thing you will notice is there are some quiet types of thingsfirst! This wasn’t intentional, but is what I’m more likely to do.
JOURNALING! Often recommended when there’s noone to talk to! (healthfitnessevolution.com)
READING FOR RELAXATION! I enjoy a good murder mystery when I feel stressed. (mensdailylife.com)
Who doesn’t like a good dose of chocolate? (Actually I know a couple of people who don’t!) GOING TO PLACES LIKE THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY (Flickr.com)
COFFEE WITH FRIENDS! Relaxing with friends over a coffee is one of my favourite things to do. Just sitting and chatting about nothing in particular and hopefully having a good laugh as well. (depositphotos)
DRINKS AND ENTERTAINMENT! A great combination for unwinding. (timeout.com) EXERCISE AND PEACEFULNESS! A great combination for those who love to stay fit. (pxhere.com)
FITNESS CLASS! They look like they’re enjoying themselves. And it’s a great way to get rid of frustrations. (123rf.com)
BIKE RIDING! This could be fun either with the soothing sounds of the sea or the countryside with its greenery and sounds of the bird. (freestockphotos.biz)
RUNNING! Either by yourself or with others. I used to get angry kids to run around the basketball courts to get rid of their ‘Angry Energy’. Seem to work! (food.unl.edu) HOW ABOUT FENCING! Looks fun, especially with light sabres. (fullcircleproject.org.uk) BOXING! Often recommended for frustration and anger, take it out on the punching bag instead of a person.
(examinedexistence.com) BOARD GAMES Personally, not my thing, but im sure people love this type of thing. (thepinsta.com)” COOKING! My husband used to know when I’d had a bad day at work. there would be a huge, elaborate meal waiting for him. Relaxes me no end! (self.com) GARDENING! I used to go to my mother’s place and yank out the weeds to help with frustration. However, I know many who find gardening very relaxing. (123rf.com)
YOGA/MEDITATION/MINDFULNESS!I find this quite difficult as I seem to have ADHD of the mind lol. But I know others who really benefit from this.(everydayhealth.com)
A FAMILY SOCCER OR FOOTBALL GAME! If there’s no kids get a group of friends together at the park. (featurepics.com)
PICNIC! With family or friends. (vancoolver.com)
This was my favourite! COFFEE BY MYSELF! It helped me just drift mentally and daydream or sort through my thoughts of things at work. (Yes I’m an introvert!) (creativemarket.com)
So I hope I’ve given you some good ideas here!
But, don’t forget to look after yourself on a daily basis as well.
I’ll talk about daily ‘self care’ at another time.
(I apologise if the words are in odd places. seems to depend which device you read it on.)
Bye for now all!
