A long day of intense and ongoing activities makes you need time to relax at home. Why home? Homes are the ideal place for taking a little rest where you can freely do whatever you want, wear any plain clothes you want, and be in any position without feeling worried to be seen by other people. They are also a place you probably miss so much after spending the whole day working outside. Relaxation is necessary since hustle and bustle can cause stress and feel tired quickly. In addition, it also raises several diseases such as headaches, symptoms of heart disease, excessive anxiety or depression, and also diabetes. You certainly don’t want that to happen, right? So, do relaxation! If you are reluctant to go out like to a spa, then it can be done at home. It is of course more economical and practical.
These are 5 kinds of relaxation you can do at home
1. Listen to musics can build up your mood
Music can relieve stress and provide calm. I would not recommend any genres of music because everyone has their different taste in music. Music has something to do with feelings. So, what a person is listening to in a certain day, it may describe what that person feels. In some Yoga Studios, a kind of mellow musics are played in order to be more focus and calm. Furthermore, listening to musics can build up your mood and slow your heart rate. That is why you should choose songs which can make you happy. In that way, you can have some times to relax yourself.
2. Hot bath provides comfort to the body
Hot bath in a bath tub provides comfort to the body, because warm water stimulates the release of the oxytocin hormone resulting you to feel peaceful and happy. Warm water also accelerates blood circulation which can overcome sleep disorders or insomnia. In addition, the benefits of hot bath are also to relieve anxiety and reduce stress. There are many benefits you can get by soaking in hot bath. However, you should note that it is better not to soak more than 10 minutes because it can cause hypothermia.
3. Take some deep breath
The next relaxation you can do at home is to lay back and take some deep breath. Inhale slowly through the nose, hold a few moments in the stomach and exhale slowly through the mouth. You can do this while closing your eyes and imagining the clean air you breathe and then enter your body and flow in the blood circulation. When you exhale, then imagine you are removing bad things from within you so that your body gets something new, clean and fresh. Do as many as 10 counts and feel the benefits for your body. This way of relaxation can make your body more calm and your blood circulation will also work smoothly.
4. Use Aromatherapy candles
There are many kinds of aromatherapy candles you can easily find in either stores or online shop. Choose a soothing and uplifting aroma. Shaped like a candle in general, it’s just that it will emit a scent that can make you more relaxed and calm.
This kind of aromatherapy is actually not something new because it has been used for a long time and was known in the kingdom of ancient Greece as a therapeutic therapy. Light an aromatherapy candle in the corner of your room and you can breathe in the scent and your body and mind will relax.
5. Pamper yourself by doing facial treatments
One of the way to pamper yourself is by doing facial treatment. If you don’t have much time to do it in the morning because of your rushing schedule, you can do it at night. Applying a face mask at night can bring a calm and relaxing effect. You can also try to massage yourself on head, on the back of your neck, and on shoulders. Massage from the top part and then down to the neck and then to the shoulder. Massage gently with strength that you can set yourself. Massage can give you peace, your blood circulation will become smooth and you will get a good sleep. You might also want to know how to get a healthy clean face skin.
Well, those are the ways of relaxation that you can do at home so that your body becomes fresh and re-energized in carrying out daily activities. It turns out that relaxation does not have to require expensive costs and it can even be done at home.
