3 Ways To De-Stress & Unwind on National Relaxation Day 2019

National Relaxation Day takes place on 15th August 2019. The day focuses on dedicating some times to slowing down, relaxing and putting yourself first in the aid of  de-stressing your mind. 

National Relaxation Day is an important day as we all need a break from the fast-paced and often hectic lifestyles we live. Taking time to recuperate and rejuvenate our tired minds and bodies may help prevent many health risks.  Like the founder of this day suggested, too much work can make us sick, run down, tired and simply just not ourselves.

3 Ways To De-Stress & Unwind on National Relaxation Day 2019! 

1. Meditation 

Taking some time for yourself to practise meditation can offer so many health and mental benefits to those of all ages. Meditation helps reduce, stress and anxiety and can even help in prolonging your attention span. 

If you're new to meditation, fear not, there's so many videos and apps available for beginners so that you can begin your meditation journey without the worry and stress of figuring out where to start and what to do.

2. Read A Book 

Sometimes life can really get away of you settling down and getting your nose stuck into a good book. National Relaxation is perfect excuse to treat yourself to a new book, or reignite your love for an old favourite. Light some candles, treat yourself to a cup of tea (or something stronger if you fancy) and lose yourself in another world.

3. Take A Walk  

A family walk may seem like a bit of a faff, especially if you have young children and/or live in a busy city. Get those walking boots on and take a drive to somewhere where the air is fresh and there's no cars. A walk can really put your mind at peace and going somewhere in the countryside takes away the stress of having to keep a close eye on the littles ones when crossing roads. They can run around, play and enjoy the nature without any worries.
