Favorite ways to unwind after a stressful day

We have all had those days that were just extremely stressful. It can be a day at work, a day with unruly or over excited children, or even a bad run in with your significant other. However, there are ways to unwind from a stressful day. One of my favorite things to do is to take a nice hot bath. I will fill the tub with warm/hot water and add in bubbles and then I would I just hop in and sit. I’d soak for a good 30 to 45 minutes in my own little world. I have this body scrub that smells heavenly and I would also use that to take my mind off of things. The scent would give me a peaceful, serene feeling. I recommend using something with lavender scent to use while engaging in a nice, hot bath to ease stress. Oil from Nature’s Origin Aromatherapy is perfect for this, it’s amazing! I close my eyes and I lean back, relaxing in a world full of peace and serenity. I pray and talk to God while doing this and it helps me calm down. Another one of my favorite ways to unwind from a stressful day is watching makeup videos. Anyone who knows me knows I love anything dealing with makeup and beauty. Watching people do makeup, especially when they are good at it, makes me happy. I then go into my bathroom and try to recreate the look myself with my own little twist. My final favorite way to unwind from a stressful day is to write. I love writing down my feelings, how my day went, everything. I write in my journal and on here which really puts me in a better mood. Writing is a way for me to let off steam and share my thoughts to others when people around me don’t care or don’t want to listen. After I complete either one of these tasks I am no longer feeling tensed or stressed out. What are some ways that you unwind from a stressful day?

  1. I like to swim. I can't run anymore (bad ankles) so I swim. It takes me some time to find my groove but it's the time I put my phone down, I'm away from social, it's just me alone with my thoughts.
