5 Ways to Unwind After a Hectic Day


Replenishing your spirit and body is key to avoiding burn out. We all have days that go unplanned late to work, flat tire, spill your coffee . On these type of days it’s vital that you remember to do things that will bring you back to your happy self. Here are my top 5 ways that I unwind when feeling overextended:

*Exercise: Exercising allows me to focus on my body. Walking and going to Zumba are to very different forms of exercise, but both bring me immense joy. I love the pulsing music and dancing to hip hop, salsa, and r&b. Zumba gives me energy and allows me to release any negative feelings or aggression I may hold. Walking brings serenity it allows me to daydream, goal set.

*Reading: Read a good book: yes I do still go to the library and actually read books may sound like a antiquated process, but I still enjoy reading and turning the pages of a good book. My favorite books are fiction books.

*Water: Taking a nice long hot shower or bath: there is nothing that relaxes me more than a nice long hot shower. Light a scented candy or diffuser. There are certain scents that I believe are must haves in your home (lavender, lemongrass, , jasmine, eucalyptus) 

*Movies: Netflix or Hulu: Binge watching a new show allows me to escape for a little while have a nice glass of Ro’se or Chardonnay. 

*Fellowship: Spending time with  loved ones always boost my spirits. Spending time with people who love and care about my well being always lift my spirits.

    Reading was always my go to when I was stressed and needed to relax. I haven’t been able to read much the last year since my daughter was born, but this served as a reminder how important it is to make time for myself. Thank you!
