Sometimes it’s all too easy to let the weekend slip away without taking time to relax.
By ‘relax’ we don’t just mean sleep all day (which is fine if you wanna do that). Oh no. We mean relaxing your body and brain from the constraints of work by getting active, exploring, and taking the time to enjoy some of your favourite things.
Sounds good, doesn’t it? If you’re struggling for inspiration, we’ve come up with a few ideas for you.
Keep it moving
Whatever the weather, a good workout will do you a world of good. Exercising at home or outdoors can be a great break in routine from your standard gym workout. Hop on over to Stretches you can do anywhere, A guide to practicing Yoga outdoors, or How to do a cardio workout at home to kickstart your fitness kick.
Hungry for something new? Try exploring one of London’s many food markets (we love Brockley Market in south London, Broadway Market in Hackney and the ol’ faithful Borough Market). You’ll discover both tastebud-tantalizing ready-to-eat dishes as well as produce that you can take home with you. You’ll be bound to uncover ingredients you’d not usually cook with, giving you the perfect opportunity to experiment in the kitchen too. Head over to our The best street food markets in London blog of a little extra inspo.
Topping up your culture
Binge-watching your favourite box set doesn’t really count as cultural immersion. So, if you’re really looking to give your senses something new, try visiting a couple of museums or art galleries. Alternatively, learn things you didn’t know about your city by going on a tour of an area that interests you. If you’re looking for something a little more exclusive you may want to visit one of the Top Secret Art Museums in the UK.
After a weekend filled with fun and games you’ll probably be craving a much-needed night’s sleep. Treat yourself to a massage to help you relax and unwind in your own home before getting into bed. This will help the body recover overnight during a deep and undisturbed slumber. Thus concludes your blissfully relaxed weekend!
