How To Relax For Beginners

Posted July 29, 2021 by in Lifestyle

Do you think you really know how to relax? Think again, there are many ways to relax but you’ve probably been doing it all wrong. Whether it was a rough day at work, you just need some you time, or you’ve been a bit rough on yourself lately, here is a guide to relax if you never have truly practiced before:

Fun Skincare routine

Maintain a good skincare routine to keep skin problems like acne scarring, deep wrinkles, and save on dermatologist-visit costs. Feel free experimenting with different European brands like Blue Lagoon for example, and using products like the BL+ Complex skincare routine to prevent and reverse damage to your skin. This is a vital investment that improves your skin resilience and gives it a lasting longevity.  Aspire to have that youthful, smooth, and hydrated skin by sticking to a good skincare routine.

Pick a product that rejuvenates and exfoliates the skin while diminishing the appearance and intensity of other blemishes or creases. A healthy skin boosts your self-esteem, mood, and you get a beautiful outlook.

Comfortable Fabrics—Like Silk and Weighted Blankets

They reduce anxiety and improve you sleep quality. The pressure of weighted blankets makes your calm and relaxed as you sleep. The deep pressure stimulates the production of hormones like dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin which lower stress levels and helps improve sleep quality. Wear comfortable fabrics not made of silk to reduce overheating. Focus on breathable fabrics as they help wick away sweat keeping you relaxed. Wear comfortable clothes made of cool to touch fabrics like cotton to enhance that hug like relaxing feeling. 

Pick fashionable outfits that replicates the relaxing feeling as you walk, sit down, or engage in other activities. This promotes mental health and reduces anxiety. 

Schedule Relaxation Times Throughout the Week…and Actually Stick to It

The point in having a downtime or relaxation time is to allow the body and mind to recuperate. The body rejuvenates and makes necessary repairs. Consequently, your mood, memory, and brain function improve. Set an hour or two every day to relax, release tension, and allow your mind to return to equilibrium. Stick to your schedule to gain better clarity, rational decision making and be less impulsive. A good relaxation schedule lowers risks of depression, heart problems, anxiety, and boosts your immunity. You can take a walk, practice mindfulness, yoga, or escape to a calm surrounding. 

Log Out Of Your Social Media Accounts

Social media is an unnecessary distraction when relaxing. A perfect relaxation is where you mind is free to explore and not engaged. This allows you to be free of negative thoughts, negative emotions, overwhelming situations, and stress. This is a time specifically for decompressing, so focus on yourself.

Try Different Things to Find Your Nirvana

When your mind is totally relaxed, you are in a state of Nirvana. This is a moment when you are totally at ease. The mind is most healthy when in its undisturbed or natural state. You enjoy a euphoric state of consciousness. Plus, you sleep better and both the body and mind are at equilibrium. 

Practice regular meditation, yoga, mindfulness, exercise, and deep breathing. Engage in activities giving you pleasure. Relaxation for everybody is not the same thing but its important to understand the value of down time no matter what the excuse is.
