A Holiday at Home
Who said you have to spend lots of money or travel distances to go on a holiday? Here are some ways you can have a holiday without leaving the comfort of your backyard.
1. A Relaxing Soak in the Tub
Light some candles and add some aromatic essential oils to a hot bath in the comfort of your own tub. Let your body soak in the warmth and soothing effect of the essential oils.
2. Dinner and Drinks with Friends
Invite some friends over, order take away from a delicious local restaurant and settle on the deck with a few drinks. You won't have to worry about getting up in the morning or having to driving anywhere after enjoying yourself, because you're already at home.
3. Spend a Quiet Evening in the Hammock
Everyone needs a hammock for those quiet evenings where you can relax in the shade. They're great for catching up on those "Z's" you've been missing out on during the working week. Grab a crossword puzzle or a favorite book and let the afternoon gently slip by.
4. Go For a Sunset/Sunrise Bike Ride
Bike riding is an excellent way to get your blood circulating. It is also relaxing for the mind, allowing you to unwind as you glide your way through the beautiful countryside. An excellent time to go for a ride is in the coolness of the morning or afternoon, right on sunrise or sunset to take in that beautiful glow.
5. Chill Out in the Pool
If you have a pool, now's the chance to make the most of it. The weather is still warm and it's great exercise without the strain. Feel the coolness of the water against your skin and the warmth of the concrete against your arms as you rest against the edge. Just don't forget your hat and sunscreen!
6. Take a Beautiful Stroll in the Park
Why not go for a long stroll through the park? Listen to the birds singing, the leaves in the breeze and the steady beat of your heart. Your pets will love you for it too.
7. It's Time to Get Buried in Those Projects
Now you have time to bury yourself in those projects you've been itching to start. Get your hands in the soil with some new seasonal flowers or tinker away for as long as your heart desires in your work shed.
8. Have a Delicious Picnic on the Lawn
Indulge in a picnic on the lawn. Pack delicious bakery bread, gourmet cheeses, fresh fruit and homemade biscuits or cakes. Put on some "chill out" tunes inside and let the mood take you as you soak up some vitamin D.
9. Find Your Inner Peace with Some Meditational Yoga
Find your inner peace with some yoga or relaxation time. It's great for flexibility, regulating blood pressure and your respiratory system. You will be surprised at how much stress you've been holding until you stop and relax.
10. Jot Down Some Memories or Project Plans Over a Hot Cuppa
Take the time to jot down some precious memories in a journal over a steaming cuppa. Journaling is good for your memory and it can also be a good method of relaxation. It is also proven, according to Better Health Channel (VIC), that, "drinking tea can slow down certain cancers and protect against heart disease." (Better Health Channel, 2016). The antioxidants also help keep us healthy, boosting our immune system and helps with slowing down the aging process. So with that, there's no reason not to put that kettle on and kick back for a little while.
