I’m so glad it’s almost the weekend! We had some stressful moments over the past few days which really made me think of how everyone has different things going on at any given time and how that can sometimes quickly get on top of us. I always think it’s so important to have time for yourself and we’ve made a few plans so I’m really looking forward to what’s ahead. While on the subject of relaxing, I thought it would be good to share my five favourite ways to unwind.
Getting in to the kitchen; pulling out bowls and weighing scales and wooden spoons; mixing various ingredients and creating something delicious…so satisfying!
I get on to Youtube on my phone, put in some earphones and just listen to a random mix of songs — pop is my favourite (hey, I never said I had cool taste in music!)
I was the messiest kid in the world and although I’m certainly no clean freak now; I love having a tidy home. It really stresses me out when the dishes are piling up, the laundry hasn’t been done or there’s just random clutter everywhere. It’s by no means one of favourite things to do (I’m not that crazy!) but giving my home a good scrub always makes me feel better.
Long hot showers
I think that’s just one of the best things in the world really! The rushing water and thick steam always clears my mind and it’s guaranteed to make me feel blissfully chilled out!
I consider myself very lucky to be living with my boyfriend. For around the first three years of our relationship, we lived far enough away from each other and there were times when we’d only get to meet up every couple of weeks. Now we get to hang out pretty much every day and I love it. One of my favourite things to do is for us to turn off the TV and put away the phones and just chat. Instead of being distracted by different screens, we can actually properly listen to each other and — even if it’s only for five minutes — it’s always worth doing.
