Marie offers four sensible tips for how to unwind after work. Enjoy.


 We live in a very busy world where most of our physical energies are directed toward the accomplishment of our daily jobs or work. The economic times are so tough that some people even need to work two or more jobs daily just to make ends meet. But at the end of every working day, we have to make sure to give our bodies the rest it most definitely deserves. How do we do this?

 Tips In Pampering Yourself After Work Hours

 What is an ideal after work relaxation or pamper time? You don’t have to spend a lot of money just to rejuvenate or revitalize your body after a stressful day at the work place. Want some suggestions on how to do that? Here are some:

 1. Get out of work mode and into relaxation mode.

Once you get home and finally off from work, slip into the comfiest clothes you can find, get your body refreshed by washing up, and adopt a relaxing posture. You may opt to prop your feet up, recline your chair, or maybe even do some light stretches.

  1. Prepare and eat healthy and invigorating snacks.

A lot of people think that relaxation involves giving into junk food cravings. The truth is that while junk foods can satisfy your palate immediately, it doesn’t have long-term relaxation or health effects. Thus, it would be better to eat healthy and fresh snacks that you prepared yourself.


  1. Get rid of items or gadgets that will remind you of work and subsequently, stress.

You won’t be able to rest well if you still have your laptop or smart phone on, reminding you constantly about future deadlines and to-do tasks. Resist the urge to check your schedule from time to time and just concentrate on pampering yourself.


  1. Engage in active sports.

Another good way to pamper and care for your body after work hours is to get some exercise through sports or recreational games. This is also a good time to interact and socialize with your family, friends, and loved ones.


 Yes, the times may be hard and yes, we all have to work hard to cope with our financial obligations but there is another obligation that we must fulfill. We need to fulfill our obligation to our bodies to care for them in the best way possible. So, what do you say to regular bouts of after work relaxation time? Yes? Yes!

Let me know in the comments section what you do to unwind after work hours. I sometimes sit on my carport facing the woods and sip a glass of red wine, other times I take a nap, and if the weather is nice hubby and I will go for a motorcycle ride.

    I sit on my dock looking out at our cove on the lake. Sometimes, I sip a glass of wine. Mostly, I listen to the day winding down: boats returning to docks, squirrels chattering at each other, songbirds giddy over a found treat.

      Sounds like a great way to relax. Sitting quietly, looking at water on a lake, river, stream, or what have you, is very calming to me also. Thanks for sharing your love of nature. 🙂
