Are you bogged down with the stress of life? If so, here are 10 great ways to unwind.
1. One of the best ways to relax and unwind is by escaping the hustle of the city and getting out to the countryside. Even if it's just one day over the weekend, a country stroll could be the perfect tonic to life's stresses.
2. If it's been a while since you've been pampered, why not consider a day of luxurious spa treatments to soothe your soul?
3. Perhaps the best way to unwind is by going on holiday, particularly to a beach resort. Somewhere like Menorca, with its 300 days of sunshine and mixture of family-friendly and quiet couples-focused resorts is perfect for relaxing with a book and topping up your tan.
4. If you're not one for sitting by the pool for hours on end, you may prefer a holiday to a more active resort. Seeing awe-inspiring sights and staggering architecture could help distract you from life's worries, so you go back with a renewed energy.
5. If you've already got a holiday booked and or require something cheaper and quicker to help reduce your stress levels, going for regular walks might do the trick. You'll have time to organise your thoughts, breathe clean air and take it what nature has to offer.
6. Exercise is one of the best ways to unwind. You can workout your frustrations and burn of excess energy, so you fall asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow. And after a few good night's sleep, you'll be well on your way to feeling better.
7. Use your lunch hour effectively. Most people under stress think they can defeat it by spending every waking hour working towards things on their to do list. While it's good to have focus, all you're doing is increasing your feelings of worry. Why not take your full lunch hour and go for a walk round the city. When you come back, you might find you're able to get more done with a clearer head.
8. Another way to help you unwind is to ask for help. If you've got too much on your plate, then see if there's someone else who can ease the burden. It might be as simple as asking a family member to post a letter for you or pick something up, or asking a colleague to attend a meeting instead.
9. If you're lying awake at night with thoughts of the day running through your mind, why not pick up a book and read? It'll help you de-stress and you may fall asleep in the middle of it, allowing you to get a good night's rest.
10. A great way to relieve yourself of the day's stresses is to talk out your problems with a loved one.
If a holiday's what you need, then why not look for flights to Menorca or even flights to Bourgas in Bulgaria for some culture?
