Have a Relaxing Bath
Small things such as having a nice bubble bath where you can just lay back, close your eyes and feel every stressful thought leaving your body is a good way to encourage positivity and feel more relaxed.
Do a Facial
Get out your toiletry collection and do a relaxing facial so that you take care of your skin. It is also a great opportunity to relax after you have your bath.
Go For a Walk
Doing a bit of exercise and getting some fresh air is a good way to clear your head and relax. It doesn’t need to be an intense walk, but as long as you get some gentle exercise and are outside it will do wonders for your physical and mental health. Find a nearby park where you can walk so you can get close to nature which does wonders to boost your mood.
