Some of us summer relaxation days hang on the beach in SPF 45 and hang in the latest Danielle Steel novel. For others – All right, most of us – summer is the continuation of our ongoing crazy script, except for the casual weekend.
If you fall into the latter category, as I suspect, In a stress-free summer you can enjoy the next 10 tips.
-> 1. Kick for cooking.
The secret of amusing and relaxing summer It's actually found in the freezer. All right: a well-equipped freezer with lightly prepared food capacity can alleviate the stress of summer stress.
Here's a list of the food and see what can be done before and before frozen time. Then spend a day or two of your go-to-favorites items and store them in hermetically sealed containers in the freezer. After the days of the summer dog arrive, all you have to do is grab, melt and microwave. What can be easier?
-> 2. Traveling without emotional baggage
If you're going to stay this season, your pre-design helps eliminate the usual Sturm und Drang from the summer vacation.
Search for destinations and travel books, maps and travel insurance. If you are traveling abroad, make sure you exchange some money into your local currency – at least a taxi from the airport to the hotel.
Leave the sack locking to prepare for airport safety; You can keep movies, valuables and allowed toiletries when you are passing on. And if possible, pack them easily. How many times did you go on vacation with a huge and stylish wardrobe, just one week to wear the same shorts every day?
-> 3. Think Different
Summer is the chance of renewal – and I'm not talking about library books. This is a chance to fill the batteries and find out where you are in your life and where you want to be.
Are you sure the trip to a spa can help you get back and rewind, but how do you go outside the comfortable zone and try something new? Whether it's creative writing or tae kwon, tap dancing or decorating a cake, the point is to try something that you have never tried before and how much you like it. If you enjoy it, it's great: Keep going. If not, move on to the next or perhaps next. Do not be afraid of the experiments.
-> 4. Design a no-no-day.
Just like a new attempt is a sure way of refilling and renewing, Out-and-Out hedonism. Some of us as part of and as part of the hedonist do nothing. There are no plans. No commitment. There are no obligations. Nada. Of course, if you do not make too much noise to the box, the alternative is to design some activities with the implicit understanding that you will not try to collect too much stuff on the Free-to-Bird schedule. That's missing.
Some ideas: pack a picnic lunch, grab an absorbing book and go to the park while leaving the entire afternoon under the shadowy tree. Go to your favorite museum or art gallery and spend as much time as you want to focus on each painting or artwork. Or stay home with a batch of DVDs and zones on the couch as long as you like. And imagine it? In the absence of a timetable, it really serves a purpose: it helps to reduce stress – even if it is for a day or just for a few hours.
-> 5. Organize.
And you do not do your tea tea, you can choose to spend your time on productive activity, for example by organizing and eliminating your home or office.
Instead of getting up and declaring one day, "Today is the day I clean my house!" (Um, nervous disorder, anyone?), A simpler and more effective approach is what I call the Chip-Away method.
This is how it works: Instead of going to a room with the intention of transforming it To think of dirty perfection, think about the mess.
Suppose you have a messy home office that looks too scary to cope with it. No problem! Start the bookcase or the shelf system and focus on the first shelf: put things down and place it on the floor. Now, there are some executives who decide to abolish something? File some documents? Send a project?
Whatever you do, take action. If you wait later, you are waiting for Godot. Do it now. Wipe the shelf clean, replace the stuff and move on to the next shelf. And the next and the next … until – voila! – a clean office!
Chip-Away Method works beautifully in the kitchen, bathroom, library or den – in any room that needs to be organized. Once you're done, you can turn around and admire your hard work. And boy, he feels good.
-> 6. Play to catch up.
The same lines, summer is a great time to catch up with everything you did not make A chance for the rest of the year. Things like taking photos into albums; Working in a guest book; The sock's call; Long-term foods were dumped from the kitchen cabinet and freezer; Cleaning the cabinet; You tossed unnecessary papers and coupons. You get the idea.
Use the Chip-Away method above to help you manage these projects. So they do not look amazing or awesome. Then when the fall happens, you are all ready and you will be stress free.
-> 7. Turn the trash into cash.
Cleared your accounts, you can discover that your eyes can be a treasure of other people. And better, you can win with it!
That's right: Pick up unwanted things, and you have a yard or an apartment for sale with him. (Take the kids to action when a lemonade station is set up.) Or take the stuff to a shipment store, sell it on eBay or donate the tax deduction. Make extra money on a savings account and watch your money increase.
-> 8. Make skin smart.
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Over a million new cases are diagnosed every year. It is a fact that skin cancer occurs in a fifth American during their lifetime. It is therefore important to protect the sun.
Here are some helpful tips for the Skin Cancer Foundation:
– Let's look for a shadow of 10 A.M. And 4 P.M.
– Do not burn.
– Avoid tanning and UV tanning booths.
– Use 15 or more SPFs every day and 30 minutes outside with 1 oz (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen. Re-apply every two hours.
– Cover the clothing, including a wide-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses.
– Hold the newborns out of the sun. Sunscreen should be used in babies younger than 6 months of age.
– Look every month on your skin on the head.
– See your doctor or dermatologist for one year of skin exam.
-> 9. Let's go to "me-time".
Do not forget you need time. Although this is not always possible – especially if there is a hectic schedule and family members compete for attention – there are ways around this obstacle.
Set the alarm if you need it, but it takes time to stop every day and do a little something for yourself – anything to dive into a juicy novel to get the manicure. Even if you sit quietly for only 10 minutes and reflect your day, you will be amazed at how good you are and how you feel in the middle. Try it and see it.
-> 10. Try to stay in R.E.S.T.E.D.
