6 Ways to Wind Down After a Long Day
After a long, stressful day, what better way to recharge for the next day than to kick off your shoes and unwind? Here are 6 ways that we at Touch Nature can think of to chill out and relax:
1. Put Away All Work!
While you may be physically away from your office or work space, work can still haunt you if you’re constantly bringing back work documents or checking your work email. Mentally and psychologically, you could very well still be at work! If your work permits, try switching off your work-related devices and putting away anything that reminds you of work for the evening. By clearly delineating work from rest, your brain will feel more well-rested, which will actually make you more productive at work the next day.
2. Unwind with Relaxing Teas
Chai lovers would know that tea not only tastes great but has calming and relaxing properties too. In today’s fast-paced, chaotic world, teas such as chamomile, peppermint, rose and lemon balm naturally help you to relax and get a better night’s sleep, free from anxiety and insomnia.
3. Rejuvenate with a Bath or Shower
A bath or shower can truly help the mind the let go of the stresses and worries of the day. Better yet, why not get yourself some soaps that have relaxing properties? At Touch Nature, we know just what works. Our Lavender and Alkanet Root soap has properties that relieve insomnia and chronic worries, and has a lovely aroma that will lift up your soul. The Peppermint soap and Hexagon Activated Charcoal soap contain peppermint essential oil – a natural near-instant stress relief! The cooling and energising effects will surely leave your body feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
4. Spend Time with Loved Ones
After a long day facing the stresses and pressures of the world, spending time with loved ones may be just what you need to re-centre on what truly matters to you. A tight hug or short phone call could make a world of difference <3
5. Be Alone
Depending on whether you’re an introvert or extrovert, spending time with others can either be rejuvenating or draining. If your day has been packed full of appointments and meetings, unplugging socially may be just what you need to restore your soul. Escape to a quiet place like a park or a café and get your ‘me time’!
