You know the feeling you may of had a few nights of bad sleep maybe looking after a poorly child or adult or you have had to many late nights studying for a test or working on some assignment. You get home and you just need to chill out and feel better. But you don’t feel like going dancing with your mates or sitting in some grotty pub. Here’s a girls guide to de-stressing and chiling.
Get your supplies
Everyone likes chocolate, its a great feel good factor and often eating chocolate makes you feel happy. I like galaxy chocolate because its smooth and yummy. But you can have a large variety to choose from your local supermarket or convenience store.
Make yourself a drink
Now make yourself a drink some a hot tea to unwind
Get yourself comfortable, nobody likes to chill in their dirty work clothes or smart clothes and remove any make up or grime from the day. I like wearing my jogging bottoms and sweater or hoddie especially during the winter months because it’s easy. Don’t forget your slippers or UGGs.
Turn off that work phone
Nobody likes an interupted text message or work email from disrupting your chilling in time
Phone a friend for a chat.
Have you you been neglecting your friends recently or a family member? Give them a random call to how they are and give them some gossip. That two way conversation is nice out way to relax.
Everyonne likes the tv but often it can be a bit boring and no-one really wants to sit through endless cookery programmes or people in debt or need to loose weight. So instead put on your favourite drama or soap and get hooked in. If you have catch up TV watch something you haven’t seen or a missed episode of Eastenders and or Corrie. If nothing takes your fancy put on a movie or dvd boxset you like.
