How to unwind after a long day.

IMG_5776

We all have those days where we are feeling so overwhelmed, stressed and just tired after a long day at work or even just at home. Especially right now, I know so many people who are stressed, and just having such a hard time with everything going on; so I wanted to share a few things that you can do at home to unwind and a few things that we can do to unwind once life goes back to “normal.”

At home:

  • Take a bath: I know not everyone loves to take a bath and if you don’t then take a nice long hot shower. Bath especially with a bath bomb, or epson salt helps me relax so much.
  • Have a glass of wine: I’m not big on drinking alcohol but I do love to have a glass of wine here and there to relax me at nights.
  • Disconnect from technology and read a book. We use our technology’s so much and it’s good to disconnect from them especially after a long day and just cuddle up on the couch or our bed and read a book.
  • Have a hot cup of tea. I love to have a hot cup of tea preferably a mint or chamomile tea while reading my book.
  • Watch a movie: I love to relax and watch a show, movie or even YouTube, especially something with comedy… laughter is the best medicine after all!
  • Bake: I don’t know about me but for me baking is so relaxing, I love to bake, and if you do too, try it!
  • Go for a walk: exercise will surely help put you in a better mood.

Outside of the house (once everything goes back to normal)

  • Gym: go exercise at the gym!
  • Gym spa: go to the steam room, or even the jacuzzi at your gym and relax!
  • Massage: get a massage…nothing more relaxing than a massage right?
  • Girls night: nothing like a little girls night out to help you relieve some of the day stress.

What are some of your favorite ways to unwind after a long day?

Pausing my 100 day challenge…

I have decided that I am just going to pause my 100 day fasting challenge for now. It’s such a stressful time right now and with me being extra extra busy at work I don’t get a chance to eat as I should do when I finally come home, I find myself stuffing my face with a ton of food and stuff before I start my fast for the night. I have been getting a ton of headaches too so not sure if it’s because I’m eating very little then a lot within an hour window that’s causing this or no. But for now while we are all dealing with this stressful stressful times and everything that’s going on in the world I will just stop and then continue when I feel ready and not so stressed.

Curious, how are you guys dealing with all this and trying to still lose or maintain your weight? Are you exercising? Dieting?
