Feeling Mentally Drained? Try these 4 S’ to Relax and Reset Your Mind

Life has been extra eventful lately and that’s why setting aside moments for self care are essential. Luckily there are some surefire ways you can recharge and reset so you can feel energized for what lies ahead!
Called the 4 s’ - sleep, sweat, sea & shower - these four offer a quick escape from the moment so you can think and refocus for the next steps ahead. Here’s some tips to make your self-care experience even better!
Super Sleep

Super Sleep

Among the four, sleep is probably the best way to reset for the day. Countless studies have proven that sleep is essential. Taking power naps and getting at least 8 hours of sleep can make your information retention better, improve your disposition, and make you generally happier. Catch up on some well-deserved zzz’s and feel much more energized!

Sweat It Out 

Another way is to get your blood moving with exercise. Sweating out life’s stresses is a great way to start or end a day. Adding regular exercise — paired alongside sufficient rest  — does wonders in both your mental discipline and overall health.

Seek the Sea

Maybe it’s time to go on a beach trip! Visit the sea, or head to nature, to take a break from your usual surroundings. You’ll need these “life pit-stops” to enjoy yourself more while adding some vibrance in your life for the next stretch of goals ahead. Smelling the fresh sea salt scent may be just what you need to fully recharge.

Shower Power

Finally, taking a shower is a great way to feel refreshed. Take the time to do a leisurely shower or a long bath. Cleanse your skin and calm your head, while massaging your favorite products with extra care. In this way, you can extend the time you need to pause and refresh.
