Everyone is so busy with work and school, possibly even children. It's tough trying to maintain all that and have a personal life. All the things you use to do to have fun or relax, you no longer have time for. Scroll down and check out this week's blog on some things you can do to relieve stress.
Hosting Game Night
Plan a game night with your friends or family. It's inexpensive and you'll be surrounded by your loved ones. You can check out different websites for board games or anything else you had in mind. If all goes well, you may be able to plan a game night once a month. This will give you something to look forward and hopefully be a big stress reliever.
Reading a Book
Not everyone enjoys reading. Some people think of it as another chore they have to do. But reading can be very relaxing. You have to find a genre you're interested in and start looking for authors or storylines that might intrigue you. Reading allows you to exercise your mind but also immerse yourself into a book with characters and plots that are full of entertainment. Try to put yourself on a schedule. Maybe you'll read in the mornings when you wake up or it could fit better in your schedule if you read right before you go to bed. Find a time that works for you and stick to it.
Going for a Walk
Covid-19 has kept us all in the house for longer than we would have liked. A common side effect of this happens to be weight gain. Because we were all in the house and couldn't get out much, most people weren't exercising. A lot of people also suffer from anxiety and depression from being alone for months. Now that health conditions have somewhat improved, you can consider taking a walk. You can walk around your neighborhood, a park, or maybe even a nearby trail. Taking a walk will not only get your body exercise but it'll give you time to clear your head and get some fresh air.
