5 Ways to Switch Off

7 January 2016
Life can be overwhelming, we all have days where everything is just too much and nothing sounds better than going back home and curling up into bed for the rest of the day - armed with a tub of ice cream and Netflix (or whatever takes your fancy). Fortunately for us, it's pretty easy to switch off, even just for a couple of hours.

So here goes, 5 of my favourite ways to switch off for a couple of hours (particularly now with a looming dissertation deadline - SOS).

1. Go for a walk - a no brainer if the weather holds out. It gets you out in the fresh air, even for a little while which can do you the world of good.

2. Bake - anything, from cookies, to a full on Bake-Off worthy cake. The more you bake, the more you'll have to eat, which of course is a bonus.

3. Read a book - a personal favourite.

4. Start a new TV series - Netflix has just added a whole host of new TV series that are just sitting in my list waiting to be watched - the perfect way to switch off.
UPDATE: I have just started watching 'How to Make a Murderer', just like the rest of the world - 2 episodes in and I'm hooked, it's worth a watch.

5. Tidy - boring as hell, I know but I find it strangely therapeutic. Plus, you can get a head start on your spring cleaning and feel 100% better. An added bonus is that your space will look fresh as a daisy, which is equally as great as fresh bedsheets.

I'd love to hear any more of your favourite ways to switch off - let me know in the comments!

Until next time,
