As a full-time university student, I've been really busy all year studying a highly intensive course. I am always in need of a breather. Yet, when I do have some time to spare, I want to keep working and doing something, rather than slow down and allow my body to recover and rejuvenate.
What are some of the ways by which workaholics can relax and detox their lives?
If money is the issue, get in your car...find a lovely place to look at.It doesn't have to be too far away, but that's what I do.
I take with me a little snack, and drink...and I sit and look at green trees, and peace and quite.
After 1 hour, I feel good....(I work in maximum security jails from time to time.)
I know about stress and being a workaholic.If you don't have a car,lock yourself away in a Library,read a book.Even go to bed for 2 hrs, is great.
Swimming is also one of the many helps for our body.
If you can grab a friend, go to the beach at 7.p.m. till say 9.p.m. and just sit and listen....everyone else will have gone home, so give that a try.
Go to a movie, just 2 hrs will make a huge difference.Take a soothing warm(not hot) bath once a week.
Turn Off the mobile every day at say 7.p.m....yes! you can do it.
Give yourself a mini facial, it will help you feel good too.
Drink PLENTY of water, and lemon juice, and eat salads for one whole week.
Go on a health and/or spiritual retreat.
Turn off the mobile phone and leave it at home.
Unwind in nature.
Learn better time management techniques.
Less time in front of the computer.
Eat and sleep well.
