The festive season is at its peak, and most of you might have already knocked off from work until the new year. Party animals have booked themselves in for those happening events in the town, whereas wanderers are creating itineraries and packing their bags.
If you are someone who wants to kick back this holiday season, let off some steam and feel rejuvenated when you go back to work again, here are 5 excellent ways to do that.
While a pedicure/manicure session is a nice way to relax, we are definitely not talking about that in this article.
- Go Fishing
If you are angling for calm, fishing is a perfect way to unwind beside commercial lakes or manicured banks of streams. If you have never been fishing before, find someone who can help you select your fly, tie, snip and cast.
Feeling a bit adventurous? Why not try wild fishing? – where you feel welcomed by nature and never want to return. And when you go out in the woods to fish, it may be tempting to take pictures while you are keeping your lines tight. But that’s not how you want to spend the day. So, consider leaving your smartphones back at home and experience the ‘joy of missing out’.
- Open space hot tub
Who doesn’t want to take a dip in a hot tub while gazing at the stars? This is something coming straight from a romantic Hollywood movie, and it will be quite interesting to recreate the experience with your loved one. You can flee to one of those holiday cottages that not only offer an experience akin to this but also merge luxury, comfort, calm and stunning views of the nature to give you a perfect getaway, away from the razzle-dazzle of the city.
- Rooftop Barbecue
Research says that spending time with friends is a great stress buster that leads you to a situation of calm and enthusiasm, and nothing brings friends together like a rooftop barbecue. Invite them over for a traditional holiday cookout with some beers, exotic wines and (conversation) starters. If you are looking to spend your holiday in a private, self-service cottage, a rooftop barbecue will be a standard feature of your stay.
Meditation is a proven stress-buster that keeps you calm, composed and cheerful for the rest of the day. For an effective meditation experience, you will need an environment free from bright lights, humming appliances, and other distractions. You can make the environment more conducive by lighting up scented candles and rearranging cushions to create a peaceful corner in your room.
- Health retreat
As 2018 draws to a close, don’t miss the opportunity to spend the day out with friends and family. A health retreat has a different meaning for different individuals. For some, it’s attending yoga classes and living in an ashram, while for others it’s jumping off a cliff, trek on the snow-covered mountains or even partying in Vegas. What’s your calling?
