Write because you want to, not because you have to.
Meditation (6)      Detox (3)      Relaxation Techniques (1)     

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.

Going for long walks is good. If they are too slow and you need more action, go for runs - they can still be de-stressing and sometimes more suited to a more active person.

Reading novels is great if you have the time, going to the beach, playing sport with friends, going dancing.

Anything where you get to move your body can be relaxing, especially after spending a lot of time sitting down to work or study.
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.
I like to escape for the weekend without my laptop or take a book down to the beach for a few hours. Meditation is also very relaxing.
Yes, the beach is definitely my getaway spot when dealing with trivial/drastic situations.
