Favorite ways to unwind after a stressful day

Have you ever had those days where everything is wrong, that you feel blue and stressed, that you’ve been working like crazy or binge-studying and you need to unwind? Well, today I’m going to share with you what are the things that help me unwind.

When I have a stressful day I have a lot of things I like to do to unwind.

Dim the lights and listen to some relaxing music

I would go to Spotify and listen to the Playlist “Relax & Unwind”. I’ll try to stay away from bright screens (If I have to use my cell phone I would set the screen brightness as lowest as possible). I would try to stop thinking about all the things I have to do. I like to do this with my boyfriend after a long day. We would cook something nice together and we will sit down and eat it. We can talk about our day and let go of all the stressful things that happened. Wine or beer is optional, but it’s a nice touch!

Relax and read a book

I would lie down on my bed and read a book; nothing’s better than letting your mind wander to other things.  Nothing is better than a good book to take your mind off of things.  After that, I would take a bath, have a nice dinner and go to bed early.

Watch my favorite TV show

After a long and stressful day maybe all you need is a good genuine laugh. And for that my favorite thing to do is to sit down and watch my favorite TV show (and I prefer comedies when I’m stressed). I will sit down and watch Friends, or Modern Family, or Parks and Recreation or Scrubs. Anything that would make me laugh and forget about everything.

Have a dinner date with friends!

If you are stressed nothing is better than let it all out with some friends. Talk about what’s been bothering you over dinner, laugh about it with friends and then go home with a big smile on your face. Eat whatever you want, be happy, you’ve had a stressful day. You deserve it.  Also, you can go to the theatre and watch a movie. Have a great night out.

Well, those are the things I do when I’m stressed. What are the things that you do? Do you do some of these?  Please leave me a comment; I would love to read it! Thank you so much for reading this, if it’s the first time visiting ITBC feel free to check the rest of the blog out!
