10 ways to relax after a long, stressful day

We are now well into January, the year is in motion, and I’m sure most, if not all of us are back to some form of work routine. Whether that means school or college or a job of some nature, I’m sure we are all back to that reality and working hard at it (if not, lucky you and I hope you enjoy the remains of the holiday). That being said, being back at work, especially after the oh-so-luxurious and leisurely Christmas holidays, can be quite a bummer. Days are long, there is undoubtedly pressure in some shape or form, and I’m sure that even if you’ve only been back for a few days, the little stresses are already starting to appear.

Ideas for Having a Relaxing Day (and why it is important)

Relaxing can often sound like a long-forgotten fantasy, especially when life gets in the way. Sometimes we get so busy working, completing things and running around to make sure we stay on top of things that we forget to breathe sometimes let alone make the time to relax. Well, today I’d like to talk about this ‘relaxing’ thing that we all forget to do because as much as it can sound like a waste of time when your to-do list is building up, it is absolutely essential. We all deserve to take some time out every now and then to relax because we are not robots. We cannot work all day every day for eternity – if you can that is both terrifying and impressive, please share your secrets. So, for all of you who work too hard and have forgotten what relaxing feels like, this blog post is for you. Today I will be sharing ten ideas for having a relaxing day but also why it is essential to have one. I hope you enjoy it and by the end of it, are inspired to treat yourself to a day of peace and relaxation.

How to Kill Time in an Airport

Travelling is a lot of fun – you get to see new and exciting places, experience different cultures and learn from the environments and people you encounter. The problem with travelling often comes in the travelling part – the getting to and from your required destination. Sometimes, the worst part of travelling is that you end up spending hours of dead time waiting around in an airport. Now, it is often recommended to arrive at the airport three hours before an international flight in case of issues checking in or long lines in the security or passport control sections.

Now you are stuck waiting in an airport until you can get on your way – and sometimes this waiting period can be incredibly dull and hard to pass. Don’t worry though, because as dull as sitting around in an airport can seem; there are actually lots of ways to pass the time, despite the limitations on what you have around you.

How to Cure Boredom

I don’t think anyone has ever escaped the feeling of boredom. It somehow finds us no matter how hard we try to hide. When those holiday days just seem to go on a little too long, or when we’ve counted the 500th tree through the car window, or simply when we have been sitting on our bed and have absolutely no clue what to do next and just painstakingly watch the seconds tick by. However, in this day and age with what most of us have access to, there is absolutely no excuse to be bored. Keep reading to find out how to cure yourself from boredom forever (or at least for now)
