Time For Yourself

These days with all the social media, friends and school to keep up with, it can be very hard to get time for yourself. Personally I think spending time with yourself is extremely important and many people seem to over look it. Lately I have been trying to spend more time with myself and I have found it to be very relaxing and is a great way to release stress. Also in the long run will improve your mental health. Here are some of my personally favourites to unwind and spend time with myself.

Have A Hot Bath
This is probably the most obvious option not to mention one of the most effective. A hot bath is incredibly relaxing and is a fantastic way to wash away the stresses of the day. Also, to make your bath even more relaxing, fill your bathroom with candles, use your favourite body wash, even play some relaxing music to add to the relaxing mood.

A great way to improve your physical health as well as your mental, is to do yoga. It involves stretching, meditation and specific bodily postures and is widely practised for health and relaxation.

Weather its a novel or magazine reading is one of my favourite ways to unwind, relax and even give myself some inspiration. Its amazing how books can just manage to take you to another world helping you distress without even realising it. At the moment I have been reading Alexa Chung's It (I have a book review post of it coming soon) and I can't seem to put it down. So I recommend for you to find a nice book or magazine that you enjoy, brew up some hot tea and just read for a couple hours.  I can guarantee you will feel relaxed in no time!

Hope you enjoyed this post and let me know if you try any of these ideas! Also in the photo above the magazine in the picture is called Frankie, its very very good! Thanks heaps for reading and you should comment if your feeling groovy.

Love, Izzy
