3 Ways to Relax

Officially, I’m on a autumn break this week from college but it certainly does not earn that name.  In a few weeks I have to take some exams, so I’m studying my ass of this week while also writing two essays…oh yeah and I also need to go to work. I used to get super stressed when I was facing exams. And to be honest I still do sometimes, but now I know how to deal with it instead of overstressing and end up crying…
I discovered some ways that help me to relax and clear my mind. Hopefully, they work for you too!

1. Tea Time

Drinking tea feels like a warm hug, it is just as comforting! However, the most relaxed way to drink tea in my opinion is while flicking through a cookbook or a promotional booklet. Because well I LOVE food and I also enjoy looking at clothes. Even though, it could never beat the yearly IKEA booklet.. I have the feeling that these things get my imagination running and gives me some new inspo! And of course it helps me to destress.

You where probably wondering if I have a favorite mug. Well I do and its this one which I received ten years ago during a Lilo & Stitch phase. I’m amazed that it isn’t shattered

2. Take a bath

Nothing is better than a hot (bubble) bath after or during a stressful day. Idk why it’s relaxing but a bath works wonders for me. Maybe because a bath is serious YOU-TIME, which is so important in my opinion! There are no distractions like television or a phone, at least I hope so haha. Just your thoughts, which can sound horrible… However, I think that true relaxation happens when you let your worries go, you need to clear up your mind and create happy thoughts.
I like to make my bath extra fancy by adding a bath bomb or lavender bath oil ❤

3. Go for a walk

Strolling is such a good way to destress for me. Something about breathing in fresh air while walking at a forest or beach clears up my mind so easily! Moreover, it gives me a lot of energy to go on hustling.

Those where the three ways to relax for now! Since college is pretty stressful, I am thinking of making a series of blogpost considering distressing. I don’t know how I pulled it off to post two times this week haha. But I did and I hope you enjoyed it as much as me!

Love life,

​Maxime
