Go To A Concert
Concerts in the park are always in season and science shows that music is a great way to relax and unwind. You can use music to boost your mood or as a way to explore your feelings. Try playing background music at work, if you find yourself in silence thinking through your long to-do list, or if a stressful thought is on repeat in your mind, When you are doing your Saturday morning cleaning, turn off the tube and turn up the jams! This makes for a more enjoyable atmosphere to hunt dust bunnies and get your hips moving! Studies also show calming music before bed time promotes a more restful and peaceful sleep. Pair this with a natural latex rubber mattress and you’ll be calm and serene in no time.
Hit The Beach
Take a nap on the beach, walk along it, or simply watch the waves. The beach has such a powerful way of calming you down the second you step foot on the sand. There are numerous studies about how surfing and paddleboarding can lift spirits and ease symptoms of depression. Anyone who has had a bad day and gone for a walk along the wet sand while the sun is setting can tell you it’s just the right medicine.
