A Few Ways I Like To Relax

Life, as hectic as it may be at times I always try to take a step back, breath, and try to relax. When I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed there are some things I like to do in order to recharge myself and let go of any stress I have trapped inside. A lot of it is super easy peasy and even a little time by myself to regroup helps a lot. I am here today to share some of my favorite fun self-care ways that I like to do to unwind and relax.

- Listen to some of my favorite music. The Lana Del Rey albums are some of my absolute favorites, especially when played on vinyl!

-  Go to the bookstore. This is a favorite thing I love to do. Nothing like a quite bookstore to help relax me.

- Read a book, new or old. I really enjoy rereading some of my favorite books.

- Pamper myself with a favorite face mask.

- Go on a walk.

- Enjoy a cup of my favorite coffee or tea!

- Work on a blog post. I love to write and writing always helps relax me.

- Call a friend or family member to catch up with and help take my mind off things.

- Indulge in some dessert.

- Take a nice long bath and I never forget to use a bath bomb from Lush! Give Twilight a try, the lavender will definitely help you relax.

- Cleaning, it's so therapeutic for me to get things cleaned and organized.

- Watch some videos from my favorite YouTubers to forget about the world.

- Give or treat myself to a manicure and pedicure.

- Light some of my favorite candles throughout the house and watch a movie.

Where any of these helpful? I would love to know some of the ways you like to relax?


  1. This is a lovely list and reminded me of some things I haven't done in awhile! I need to visit my local bookstore - its been ages! I also love face masks, tea, and of course indulging in dessert. Perfect post. :) xx

    1. I'm so glad you enjoyed this post. Thank you so much for reading!


  2. Great tips - and so very much needed at the moment! For me, tea and a good book is a sure fire go-to, as is walking, especially when it gets a little chillier outside :)

    1. I totally agree with you there! Thanks for stopping by.


  3. This is such a lovely post! I agree a lot of the things you mentioned on this list also relaxes me but I also love hearing podcast! I'm probably subscribed to one too many but days I don't want to do anything or whenever I'm commuting anywhere I'll just play it and it makes my day go by faster.

    1. I remember you mentioning before how you listen to a lot of podcasts. I've never listened to any, but then again I don't really know of any to listen to lol. I'm not really familair with them. I can imagine they can be elaxing just like audio books.
