How To De-stress And Relax Your Mind, Body And Soul

Are you a fashion designer and spend most of your day and week in your studio, designing, drawing, cutting, pinning outfits and ideas and you just absolutely love your job and wouldn’t have it any other way? Or do you work a nine to five office job and feel like your boss loves to push you around and couldn’t get any bossier, you work in the customer service department and handle stressful calls and complaints from angry customers all day and you just cannot wait for the weekend every week? In the day and age we live in, almost everyone in a household needs to work if they want to live a comfortable life. Or maybe, like the designer, you just enjoy working. But no matter what your job is or how much you enjoy it or hate it, we experience some form of stress in one way or the other. Maybe the urgent overseas delivery for some of the important fabrics you ordered got cancelled and you have an angry bride complaining at your store or maybe you get easily stressed out, it is important that you take the time out of your day, possibly at the end of your day to de-stress and help yourself relax. Read below to see what you can do to de-stress. 

Take a bath

At the end of a long day, nothing can be more relaxing than dimming the lights, getting yourself a glass of wine, a good book or movie, lighting a few beautifully fragrant soy candles Brisbane and soaking your stress away. This is not only great for your mind, but it can also help you sleep deeply and well.

Get your sleep

After your relaxing bath, your body will already be ready to doze off but if you still can’t stop thinking of work obligations or pending work that you need to take care of in the morning, you can try some relaxing essential oils such as lavender or eucalyptus and apply them on your pressure points as well as on your pillows and sheets.

Write down your thoughts

A lot of people believe that when they write down their thoughts, dreams and goals, somehow, they end up achieving them. You can start writing in a journal and include all your worries and what you look forward to in the future. Even if you want to purchase that Mercedes Benz car that you have been dreaming of since you were 5 and it all seems so impossible right now, writing it down will get these thoughts out of your head and help you relax and when you no longer have anything to think or worry about, you will automatically doze off.
