Christmas season is over yet again for another year! We can’t quite get our heads around the fact that it’s 2018 – already! While we’re getting ourselves in gear for 2018, we thought one more day of relaxation is deserved before we’re all back to the real world! Here’s five ways to unwind and make the first day of 2018 a relaxing, yet fulfilling day.
1. Indulge in a Duvet Day
This has to be a top to-do when it comes to relaxing and unwinding. Christmas can be a hectic time, so take some time to yourself. Grab the coziest clothing you own, wrap yourself up and stick on Netflix. Catch up on your old favourites!
2. Unwinding Winter Walks
It’s that time of year when you’ve spent the majority of the time in your favourite pj’s, and we love it! But sometimes a nice walk can clear your head and give you some time to wind down after the festivities. Either grab your comfiest shoes and get going, or rally together the rest of the family and head out for a 20 minute walk. You’ll feel all the better for it!
3. Make Use of Any Leftover Chocolate
Leftover chocolate? There’s usually no such thing. But at Christmas, there’s almost a guarantee that you’ll buy more goodies then are needed. Make use of leftover chocolate and spend some time with the kiddies making tasty brownies. Check out our full chocolate brownie recipe here and tune into the video right here.
4. Make a Conscious Effort to Unplug
This one can be easier said than done. Try make a conscious effort to unplug from social media, even for an hour. Your head will feel a lot clearer and you won’t be thinking about that last outfit photo you spotted on Instagram. If there’s a gang in your house for the New Year, pool everyone’s phones together. The first person to reach for the phone has to make the next round of tea!
5. Enjoy a Pampering Session
Who doesn’t love a good pampering session? Round up your favourite beauty products and enjoy some well deserved me-time. If your days are filling up too quickly, try out a five minute face or skin mask. Sometimes it’s the smallest of things that are most enjoyable!
