8 Tips On How To Relax and Rejuvenate

by McEnearney on July 30, 2018

We all know the benefits of unplugging and taking a break from the stresses of daily life. However, a longer vacation may not be an option right now, so instead, here are some alternative ways to find some serenity. At the very least, be sure to embrace National Relaxation Day on August 15th! With so many ways to relax, how will you spend your day?

If you enjoy the great outdoors, activities like walking, biking, or hiking at a local state park are always great for reducing stress. For a more leisurely outdoor adventure, we suggest a relaxing drive through the Blue Ridge Mountains, taking a mental health day by the beach, or packing a picnic. Try taking photographs or sketching your surroundings, or even start reading that new book you picked up recently.

When was the last time you immersed yourself in one of our area’s free and iconic museums? Get lost in the collections of the National Gallery of Art or even just have some lunch in the serene setting of the Kogod Courtyard. You can explore art and artifacts from ancient times to the modern day or just spend hours absorbed in a few inspirational pieces at any of the world-class Smithsonian museums.



Rest and Relaxation Everyday

Despite all the expert advice and studies about the benefits of self-care, few people make time for relaxing moments every day. Here are 5 tips for finding some R&R even on your busiest days.


Unplug – Turning off your devices for part of the day may be one way to cut out some stress. You’re likely to sleep better and enhance your relationships.

Deep Breathing – Take a short break and breathe in and out slowly to help let go of tension and improve your mindfulness.

Stretching – Whether you’re stuck at a desk or on your feet, taking a break to stretch out your arms, legs, back, neck or wherever you feel tense helps loosen muscles and relaxes your body.

Find Inspiration – Social media and the internet can help you relax with daily reminders of loved ones and thoughtful advice.

ColorAdult coloring books are all the rage nowadays. They’re not only just as much fun as when you were a kid, but coloring can help you enter a meditative state and release negativity.
