After a long, hard day at your 9-5, the first thing most of us want to do when we get home is completely crash, lock the door and put on Dynasty. However, if you really want to unwind after a day full of ‘I can’t even’ there are better ways to relax other than watching Netflix. Try these handy tips to seriously de-stress and set yourself up to better tackle tomorrow.
Go for a walk
When work had you in a fluster all day, put on your runners and go get some fresh air. One of the best ways to de-stress after work is by going for a nice, long walk. Not only will it do you a world of good mentally, but it’s also really important for your overall health. Any kind of activity that boosts your heart rate and causes a bit of huff and puff will relieve stress and leave you feeling happier inside and out.
Catch up with BFF
Besties make everything better. Go hang with your bestie and have a vent session about your day. Being around your nearest and dearest can reduce the production of cortisol which will leave you feeling all brand new.
Go out for dinner
After a stress-filled day, the last thing you want to do is cook, and not to mention clean up. Treat yourself to a meal at your favourite restaurant and let you worries melt away. You’ll feel comforted by a delicious meal and your mind will be taken off your difficult day at the office.
There’s nothing more soothing than a hot cup of tea. Try brewing your fave herbal tea and sip until your worries are no longer. Our top pick for a calming brew is chamomile. It will leave you feeling warm, settled and completely relaxed.
Take a bath
One of the simplest, yet most effective ways to relax is by taking a nice, long bath. Soaking in warm water, feeling completely weightless with a bath bomb will make you feel like you’re on cloud nine. Try playing some tunes as well to create a completely calm ambience. Our go-to calming playlists on Spotify is The sound you need. Top BB tip: After your bath, apply our Natural Tanning and Body Oil for seriously soft, smooth and hydrated skin. Trust us babe, you're going to love it.
