There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic is meaning we are all having to do things differently. Whether you are having to work from home or struggling to get essential food, it can be hard to relax. After a challenging day, could you do with some help on how to stop feeling overwhelmed? If so, read our 5 top tips on how to relax in the evenings without being stuck to a screen.
It can be very easy after a stressful day, to simply plonk yourself in front of your TV. However, why not pick up a good book instead? The benefits of losing yourself in a book are many. Reading a good book not only improves your vocabulary, memory and empathy, it is also reduces stress too. A nightly read of a few chapters (or more) can really help you sleep better too. If you are stuck for inspiration, why not google top books everyone should read, and pick one from a list!
There is nothing better than a good quiz, so why not make yourself everyone’s favourite quizmaster? Arrange to host a weekly quiz night and invite your friends and family to participate. Simply choose a chat platform that works best for you, such as zoom, and invite your friends to join. If you have younger family members, get them to help with compiling the questions. A fun weekly quiz, packed full of laughter really gives everyone something to look forward to.
What better way to relax than treating yourself to a pamper night? Turn your bathroom into a mini spa! Create the perfect relaxing atmosphere with tranquil music, and safely placed scented candles. Fill your bath with rich soapy fragrant bubbles and have a lovely long soak. Give your body a gentle all over scrub and make your skin glow from top to toe. Give every part of your body some TLC, don’t forget to trim those nails, and condition your hair. Remember pampering is not just for women, there are many wonderful products for men too! All guaranteed to help stress just melt away.
Good old home cooking not only smells nice it tastes good too. Indeed, there really isn’t anything better than delicious aromas of home cooking floating through your home. Cooking really can benefit your mental health too, as it helps to create a strong sense of accomplishment. Whether it is a cordon bleu meal, a hearty stew or a delicious cake, a home cooked meal really is food for your soul. Why not involve all the family and create your own Bake Off, Ready Steady Cook or MasterChef competition? The more fun you cook up in your kitchen the more relaxed you will become.
Rather than watch a film or programme that you have already seen, why not have a go at some art and crafts. Whether it’s making a papier-mâché piggy bank or a decorated pot, creating something from scratch is really satisfying. If you’re stuck for inspiration, simply google easy craft projects, and see what pops up. Why not follow in the footsteps of many film stars such as Russel Crowe, Julia Roberts, and Ryan Gosling, and have a go at knitting or crocheting? Not only do you get to loose yourself in learning a new skill, but you could also make a perfect present for a loved one too.
