It can be hard to take a day off, especially if you’re a student or work from home. It can seem wrong to relax because we think that we are “wasting time”. But I think it’s better to take a day off to relax now and then, instead of working until you’re completely drained physically, mentally, and emotionally.
So, if you’re able to take a day off for yourself when you need it, do it! Here are some things you can do on your day off:
Don’t set the alarm
Wake up naturally. Give your body all the rest he needs. Having a morning free from time restrictions will help you feel refreshed and ready for the day!
Eat a more elaborate breakfast
On workdays, we usually tend to forget breakfast, or we have something very simple and quick. So, plan a nice breakfast for your day off that you really enjoy and normally you don’t have time for.
Don’t open e-mails or spend hours scrolling on social media. Forget all the social media things, you need to prioritize living in the moment.
Declutter your space
On our workdays, we usually don’t have time for this. So, put your favorite playlist on and take some time to clean and declutter your house, it’s very therapeutic as well.
Start a new hobby
Start that thing you’ve always wanted. If you don’t do it now, you never will because you’ll be back to work before you know it. Set yourself a goal to make the first step into starting that new hobby on your next day off.
Binge-watch your favorite TV show
Your day off is a great time to binge-watch some tv shows. It can also take your mind off work for a bit.
Don’t spend the entire day stuck inside your house. Spend some time in your garden, at a near park, or go for a walk.
Have a self-care day
Don’t forget this one! Self-care is so important and we tend to forget it on our busy days. Spend your day off taking a long bath, have a face and hair mask, do your nails, whatever feels good for you, do it!
Experiment a new dish
Try to cook a new recipe or try to re-create one of your favorite restaurant dishes. You can also prep your meals for the next workdays.
