Like many people who live in a big city, I often find myself getting distracted by all that life brings. It’s all too easy for us to lose sight of what’s happening around us when we’re moving at such a fast pace.
I only came to realize how highly strung and wound up I was when I lost my job. I needed to lose the tension and relax by taking up a few activities on a regular basis. That way, I’d be able to enjoy the simpler pleasures in life.
I found three things to be especially effective for this and I hope they can help you, too.
A hot bath can be very relaxing. Make the most of yours if you’re lucky enough to have one at home. It will soothe you physically and emotionally, so take one as often as you can. Try to allow yourself plenty of time so you can enjoy some of your favorite music while you’re in there.
My next recommendation would be to take up reading. My friends and I have recently started reading the same book in a month and then meeting up to share our thoughts on it. I not only enjoy the time spent reading, but also the time spent having a coffee with friends and sharing a common interest.
However, running must be my preferred method for staying calm. That might sound strange to you. It requires a lot of effort, puts a strain on your body and at the end of it you’re just worn out, right?
No, actually. Although it’s a tough form of exercise and quite tiring, after a run you’ll find you feel totally relaxed and cheerful. You’ll get a good night’s sleep, too.
For the ultimate relaxation experience, follow a run with a nice hot bath.
