It’s a busy go-go-go world, time to take a deep breath and relax. Here are some ideas and tips from DealDash.
When’s the last time you left your phone off for a weekend and just relaxed and enjoyed the company of your friends and family? Years? Maybe it’s time to slow down, relax, and enjoy the company of those around you.
Turn Off the Devices
Try it! You can start small. One day per when you get home from work plug your phone into the charger and don’t pick it up again. Don’t open your laptop, don’t pick up your tablet, and just relax.
If you’d like to do this a couple of times per week that will go a long way to being more mindful and appreciative of the world around you. Of course, you wouldn’t want to do this all of the time, but a couple of times per week would be a great little technology break for you.
Get a Little Light Exercise
Usually, when you say “exercise” to a fairly sedentary couch potato they cringe. However, I’m not talking about running or weightlifting. When the weather gets a little nicer out (it’s coming soon!) take a half hour after work and go for a leisurely walk around your neighborhood or local park. If you’d prefer to do a family bike ride, that would be excellent as well. A little light exercise will do you a world of good and help you slow down a relax a bit.
Spend More Time With Friends
Spending time with your family is a wonderful thing and should be done often. Sometimes after people have children their friends get put aside a bit and the friendship never resumes again. Well, let’s try to put a stop to that right now.
If you have time during the week, try to meet up with a friend for drinks or coffee after work. You might arrive home to dinner a bit late and have to eat leftovers, but it will be worth it for your mental health. Having a drink and a nice conversation with a friend can help you slow down and breathe a little.
