5 Easy Ways to Relax At Home (That Are FREE to Do)

5 Easy Ways to Relax At Home (That Are FREE to Do)

Had a long day?

Do you just want a break?

A little time to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet?

Although it may seem hard to right now, as there is just so much going on, it can be done and below are five little ways you can have some “alone time” and relax, especially before bed!

And the best part, you can do these all of this in the comfort of your own home.

How do I know? Because these are my secrets! Shh…

1. Take A Bath

A warm relaxing bath before bed has been shown to help you have a deeper sleep. The warm water can help with the relaxation of your mind and muscles.

To feel the benefits more, I love adding bath salts or a bath bomb with essential oils. As colours, oils and aroma can help with calming the body as well as nourishing the skin at the same time.

2. Listening to Music

Playing sounds or music that relaxes the mind is another easy way to relax at home. This is something I usually find myself doing after a long and busy day, when there is a bit of a struggle to shut off and fall asleep.

Before bed, I usually try to listen to a few minutes of slow, calming music or natural sounds, such waves crashing or running water.

I find this helps me fall asleep quicker and also have a sound sleep. The reason this may also help you with falling asleep is because it slows down breathing and reduces heart rate preparing you for a good night’s rest.

3. Reading A Book

Sometimes it can be hard to find a great book but when you do, it’s difficult to put it down. You just never want to stop reading. You want to know what happens next and you feel like you are part of it.

Reading is one the things I have been getting into as of late, especially before bed. Sometimes when I feel tired, but not tired enough to fall asleep, I read.

I find that this helps me reduce any anxiety or stress I might be feeling, as it helps me to focus my attention onto something else. After a good 20 minutes or so, I do start to find myself dozing off and feeling mentally ready for bed, allowing for a long and restful sleep.

4. Meditation

This can sometimes be a tricky one but I guess practice does make perfect, as I am still trying to master this. When I find a few spare minutes in the morning or even before bed, I try to meditate. Even though it’s just for a few minutes, I feel really good after and the benefits are abundant.

Benefits include reduced stress and anxiety, better focus as well as improvements in mood, health and work.

5. Yoga

I am not going to lie, this does require a bit more effort than the other ones, but I do feel very good after it! I only do around 10 minutes’ worth of poses and find the workouts online. I do modify some of the exercises to suite my ability (as I am just a beginner) and find that it has really helped with my flexibility and strength.

What I love most about yoga is that anyone can do it! You can modify it to suite your abilities and in time, work to achieving more challenging poses. Plus, with benefits like reducing stress and anxiety, improving posture, sleep quality, concentration and focus, it is very hard not to fault!
