LEARN TO UNWIND AFTER A CRAZY DAY AT WORK

How many times you come from work and try to seat and relax watching some telly and your brain doesn’t give you peace? I assume plenty, our brains are hardwired and sometimes it needs more than just seating to relax to actually manage to switch off and have the deserved peace.

Well today I will give you a few simple tips in how to have a relaxed evening, sleep more soundly and wake up feeling refreshed and ready for a new day.

  • LEAVE WORK AT WORK

One key thing to manage to not think about work is to make sure you finalise all the key things for the day and make a list of what you need to do the day after, this will make you feel more in control of your tasks and allow your brain not steam up with a million of things to do. Another important tip is to create at home a space where you can truly unwind and relax for a few minutes.

  • SET UP A RELAXING ATMOSPHERE

The best way for this is to dim the lights and light some Relaxing Candles, run a bath with some relaxing salts like the Aveda’s Stress-fix Salts and deep yourself in! Don’t forget to put some relaxing background music, close your eyes and let yourself drift off on this relaxing bubble 🙂

  • SIP ON A RELAXING TEA

Warm beverages help to soothe and relax. Camomile and peppermint are winner relaxing herbs. Try Aveda Comforting tea.

  • TRY AROMATHERAPY

I love to spray my pillow with some relaxing mists and rub on my wrists and temples some essential oils. Usually I also use a relaxing body cream after the bath. Here’s my favourites list:

Stress-fix body lotion

Stress-fix Composition oil

Feel Grounded Body Mist

    MAKE YOUR BEDROOM A SANCTUARY
  • It’s essential for your bedroom to feel like the place where you can switch off. Make sure your pillows are soft, your mattress comfortable, warm blankets and relaxing and cosy colour scheme.
    • COMFORTABLE NIGHTWEAR
  • Look for some natural fibre’s nightwear. It’s important for your body to have fabrics that can breathe in order to not get too hot at nigh. Silk, cotton and bamboo are the best for a restful night as they keep your body temperature balanced.
