4. Spa treatment

Go to the spa for a sauna, hammam and/or full-body massage. If you prefer something by yourself and at home, then have a warm foot bath, massage the soles of your feet and apply pressure at the temples.

5. Aromatherapy

Essential oils have a variety of benefits and can be used in different ways. Based on your personal preference, find the right scent for yourself. However, lavender is popular for inducing relaxation.

6. Proper nutrition

Have a healthy, balanced and nutritious diet. It helps you to feel energetic. On the other hand, neglecting to have a good diet will sooner or later entail a variety of issues.

7. Coffee/tea

Are you a coffee or tea lover? I enjoy both but drink tea most of the time. However, an excess of caffeine is not recommended.

8. Chocolate

Dark chocolate can help you feel better. It’s less sweet than milk chocolate. Do control how much you consume.

9. No addiction!

Alcohol is a popular way to unwind and relax. However, when taken in excess, it can cause much regret. Harmful drugs must be avoided! A healthy lifestyle is best.

10. Self-care

Follow a proper daily self-care routine. When you take care of yourself first, then you can feel at your very best to be productive and support your close ones. Incorporate self-care habits into your daily life.

  1. I have noticed a big difference in my mood depending on the hours of sleep I get each night. When my kids are sick or up for some reason at night and I get a lot less sleep, I am way more prone to anxiety or grumpiness the next day. Thank you for sharing these tips, they are all great!
