Calm Down After a Long Day

Monday, February 23, 2009

Stress is something that builds and builds, and after a long hard day all someone wants to do when they get home is relax. Actually unwinding can be easier said than done sometimes, so here are some helpful steps.

Find a low energy activity that you can enjoy. This activity will help you be able to take your mind's focus off of everyday worries. This activity really depends on each person and can vary from each individual. Some suggested activities are; reading a book, taking a bubble bath, cooking your favorite meal, and watching your favorite movie. Which ever activity you choose just make sure it is something peaceful and that you can really enjoy. Remember that this should mostly be an activity done alone.
Turn off any distractions before you start on your road of relaxing. Cell-phones, computers, and televisions are constant stimulation and a connection to the outside world. These devices can keep you from being able to forget about everyday hustle and can stop you from having time to yourself.
Take off any restrictive everyday clothing, such as jeans or work shoes, and put on lounge wear or pyjamas. Any clothes that allow you to feel your most comfortable, such as slippers or a sweatshirt, are perfect.
Start the activity that you would like to focus on after you've got as comfortable as possible. If you've chosen a quieter activity, like taking a bubble bath or cooking, then playing some soothing music in the background might help. Aromatherapy candles can also help your body get in a more relaxed state. If you chose a sitting activity, such as reading a book or watching a movie, then make sure you're in an environment where you have few interruptions. Lots of pillows and blankets are also good to have while sitting down.
Get some sleep. After you really feel you've calmed down and relaxed, then it's time for bed. Put on some mellow music, climb under some comfy covers, and crash out!

If you happen to be coming home to a house with children then arranging for a babysitter to help look after them will allow for a little time to yourself.
Try to get clocks and watches out of your view sight so you do not feel like you're under time restrictions.
Watch out for babies/children/brothers/sisters etc., as they can wake you up.
Using the Internet will not necessarily calm you down; in fact, it can have quite the opposite effect, so be careful about using it to "keep calm".
