We all need a change of scenery after the events of the past year and half. This includes plans to unplug and release the stress caused by this situation, which is not over yet. It looks like there is a significant turnaround in vaccines, so it might be time to relax. Here are my top tips to help you achieve it.
Unless you’ve lived on another planet in the past months, you probably know that we have been living on Covid-19 for nearly a year and half. We have reached a point where we are becoming overwhelmed by the effects of the pandemic and the uncertainty imposed by the restrictions. Continuous stress has been a constant at work, home, and in society.
Some people use meditation, yoga, or mindfulness to overcome this phase. These practices can prove to be very helpful, especially in times when it is difficult to travel or socialize.
We must now break free from the negative habits of the past few months. We need to make a change, be more positive, have more energy, step out of our comfort zones, and create new plans that will help us relax and reduce stress.
This post contains great ideas for relaxation and disconnection. These will help you get started on this new stage.
Although this plan sounds very common, I believe most people could benefit from it. Imagine spending a weekend at a spa in a hotel? You can do everything, and the staff will pamper you. This is undoubtedly one the best ways to relax, disconnect and think about yourself. Massages with volcanic stones can help relieve tension and pain. You can relax completely because the heat from the stones radiates through your skin.
To relax and disconnect, it is a good idea to get lost in nature. To relieve stress, a bike ride or light hike through the mountains is a great way to unwind. It helps you keep to the recommended practice of moderate intensity physical activity every day. It will give you more energy to get started in the morning.
This plan could be combined with the previous. It is a great way to unplug. It is always good for recharging your energy. You can breathe in pure, fresh air, without polluting, see beautiful landscapes, listen to the wind, birds singing, and hear the sound of a waterfall.
You don’t have to travel far to find a rural home or farm in the closest town. This will allow you to escape from the chaos of the city.
If you live close to the ocean, this is the perfect time to take a break from work. If necessary, ask for a day off and grab a book, a cooler and something to drink and a chair.
Use sunscreen and bring an umbrella if it’s very sunny. Enjoy a day on the beach reading and listening to the sounds of the ocean. It is a great way to recharge and disconnect.
Reading improves cognitive abilities and makes professionals more alert in their work. Get away for a weekend if you don’t reside near the ocean.
These types of sports may cause you to feel more stressed than relax. They actually release adrenaline. This can be a great way to unplug. Paragliding or jumping in a parachutist can take you through the Sierra de Cazorla. You’ll see landscapes from a new angle, and you will be able to rediscover them. You will also be completely immersed in the experience and will forget all about it.
Blessed friends who help us get out of our routines! It’s possible to break out of the routine by talking with friends and having a good time. It is always a good idea to talk about other topics than your daily life.
If you feel overwhelmed, your friends are the best people to talk to. It’s always a good idea to spend time with your friends, even if it is just for a few minutes. These moments may not be the best way to disconnect but they can still be very effective.
It is always a great idea to travel. It doesn’t matter if you are far away. You will be enriched by the experiences of other cultures, traditions, and people. It will also help you appreciate what you have back home. It allows you to relax and enjoy the journey.
Because not all countries are moving at the same pace towards vaccination, it is obvious that it may be too early to consider going far. You can still plan and design the trip that you want to take once all of this is over. You have less time at the moment. You can find good places to retreat in Thailand, Bali and the Seychelles, Maldives, or the Greek Islands.
