So put down the remote and try doing one (or more!) of these 10 things for optimum relaxation.
If your day was a disaster best forgotten, a quick way to recover is cocooning. Gently place both palms side by side on your face, little fingers resting on your closed eyelids, index fingers on your ears, thumbs cradling your jaw. Do this for a few minutes and feel yourself start to unwind.
Put your feet up
If you work on your feet all day and your ankles are swollen and legs are tired, put on your tracky dacks, lie on the floor with your legs up the wall. Blood flows towards the heart and helps prevent varicose veins.
The long soak home
An after work massage is a great way to unknot tight muscles. Muscles hold stress, and massage is a great way of releasing this stress. If you’re able to, why not make it a monthly ritual?
