5 Easy Ways to Relax

15 May

Summer is finally here! After putting a year’s worth of hard work in, make sure to get some YOU time this summer and relax! Relaxing can be very easy to do, but I think when we get caught up in the school year we forget how important it is to take some time to wind down. I understand it is hard to have the time to do so, and that is exactly why you need to use summer to your advantage. Whether it is sleeping in, reading a book, doing yoga, it is time to refresh! For your enjoyment, I have made a list of 5 easy things you can do to relax!

1.  Deep Breathing Exercises

Deep breathing is a great way to relax the mind and body. Taking 5 minutes a day to focus on your breathing and lowering your heart rate can have great significant outcomes on your overall health.

2. Scrapbooking

Even though scrapbooking might be a little old-fashioned, it is still such a relaxing and rewarding activity. There is no limit as to how creative you can get with your scrapbook, let your imagination run wild!

3. Take a Bubble Bath

Pretty easy way to relax right? Just fill up your tub with hot water, and add a bath bomb and light some candles if desired!

4. See a Movie

Taking a moment to sit down and watch a movie is a great way to escape reality and get lost in a film. Usually, movie theaters will have a discount for students or have a discount at certain times, so buying a ticket shouldn’t break the bank. But if anything, you can always just watch a movie at home!

5. Explore Nature

This is my number one go-to. There is nothing more relaxing than becoming one with nature. Go for a hike, enjoy the scenery, and appreciate all mother nature has to offer!
