Do something nice for yourself. Doing something you enjoy or that makes you feel good can improve your mood, relax your mind and body, and help you sleep more soundly at night. So, next time you’re feeling stressed, mentally and emotionally exhausted, frustrated, worried, depressed, or anxious, do something to pamper yourself.
For instance, go out with your buddies for a Girls’ Night or Guys’ Night, do a little “retail therapy” at the mall, go on a romantic date with your significant other, pick up tickets to a concert, comedy club, festival, or play, and/or spend time doing things you love like painting, drawing, knitting, singing, reading, playing video games, or writing. Then, right before bed (1-2 hours before bed), take a warm bath to relax.
If you want to fancy your bath up, add some lavender-scented oil to it. Lavender is a natural relaxant. Add a couple of capfuls of bubble bath liquid to it so the tub is overflowing with bubbles. (Who doesn’t love bubbles?) Then, step in and allow the fragrant and bubbly water to wash your worries and stress away.
