An exasperating day may end, but stress can escort you until night. Save yourself and REFRESH!
There are many stressors in life. Some are triggered by our own actions, but most of the times these agents of stress are brought by external factors.
The good news is that no matter how stressed we get, we are also given with many options how we can be REFRESHED. Though some would prefer to sleep things over, by trying these tips, you could gain back your energy and enjoy the rest of the time before opening tomorrow’s page.
- Walk for at least 30 minutes.
Experts say that when your body is at rest, you can regenerate more energy, but also the more active you are, biologically, your system can provide you more with energy sources. The more energy you could generate, the more refresh you will also feel.
Take a walk outside for half an hour and the moment you will start to sweat, you will feel more alive. Do not forget also the fresh air plus the favorite music you could enjoy.
Moreover, when you are trapped in a troubled mind, it is encouraged that you take a walk. Getting up to walk may not give the solution to your problem, but at least could help you clear your mind and might give you enough time to think things over.
- Drink glasses of water.
I have stumbled upon an article, which states that doctors may recommend you to drink 6-8 glasses of water only, but if you think your body needs more, then go for it. Many studies have already proven that dehydration can slow down the brain functions.
If you have spent your day doing heavy loads of works, then you might have sweat a lot and your body just needs to refuel. Drinking fruit juices can also help as the natural sweets can also be a source of your energy.
- Pause and Take A Nap
Some call it a power nap. You can schedule your nap even just for 20 minutes. Based on research results, those employees who are spending time to take a nap have improved their alertness and performance for the rest of the day.
However, although research may support that resting can help you refresh your mind and enhance more your creativity, sleeping often during office hours is another story.
Well, I know that you know already these things, however, I still listed them out just to give you a reminder that refreshing can help you not just regain your lost strength, but also gives you more time to breath and take everything light.
Your day may be tough and busy, but life is just how the way it is. Therefore, always find time to relax.
