Daily routines, can get a little boring and uninspiring with time, thankfully there are other fun activities to try out. If you are looking to switch things up, ideas to ponder include;
Listen to relaxing music. Note the word relaxing? This means, not listening to your favourite rock band evanescence. Types of relaxing music consist of jazz or purely instrumental music… These musical instruments, played the right, have a way of relaxing the mind.
Take a bath. After a long day, the most likely thing to do, is taking a cool shower, before settling to have dinner or watch some TV. However, a nice warm bath helps with changing your mood, relieving skin conditions, or help with muscle pain…. Lit candles with a bottle of wine and essential oils also foster relaxation process.
A room filled with lighted candles (not necessarily scented) could serve as a reminder to slow things down and take a break. It sets the right mood for a comforting evening. Sipping on a glass of Carlo rossi or Pink moscato while reading a book, is a very relaxing activity to try out. A glass of red wine can help calm your nerves and reduce anxiety, however moderation is key when taking up this activity.
Hobbies. This is perfect timing take on a hobby. This shouldn’t be something work related, but some fun activities you did as a kid, it could be drawing, video gaming, or even some sport. All these are positive activities, which could replace your TV time.
Exercise. I personally have a love-hate relationship with exercising, however its importance cannot be overemphasized. Exercising does not necessarily involve painfully repeated body movements, it could be as easy as playing a game of chess, taking a walk or making jewellery, all these are relaxing (mind) exercises.
Meet up with friends. This is probably the go-to option for many of us, opting for the company of friends over the regular TV time, is a good choice to make when looking for something fun to do.
Spend some quality time with family. Gather up members of your family for some fun games everyone can participate in. Fun family games include; dance party, monopoly, and Baking.
