Sometimes finding time to chill out is pretty tough. When you do find some time, you’re so overwhelmed that you just waste it wondering about what you’re going to do and which hobby you’re going to spend time with. Some find it easier of course and can sink into their chill time pretty easily, but for those that can’t, here are some tips for you. What works for some may not work for others, but it can be a good idea to have a look and help shift your perspective to one which focuses on self care. Some may be flat out with work, others might have a newborn to think about. Whatever your situation, these might help.


Sometimes it’s hard to chill out when you’re super busy most of the time because your brain just won’t switch off. You’ll be left thinking about what needs to be done, and what has been done. Finding that ultimate relaxation is done differently. Some check for CBD, others will spend time in the bath letting the water soak the worries away. Before you decide to chill out, you need to ensure that you’re in the right frame of mind otherwise it’ll be a total waste of time. Some like sitting down with a hot drink and listening to some music, others might go for a walk to clear their head first. Whatever you do, make sure you’ve de-stressed before trying to relax.


Engage The Brain

Engaging the brain is always a great way to get the full benefits or relaxing and chilling out with little time. If your brain is engaged on something completely, you’re going to be switched off and really taking in and appreciating the relaxation. A lot of people read books. These usually cut into your mind and stop you thinking of anything else. Audiobooks are another way to get the same benefit. Gaming has quickly been growing with more people than ever owning consoles and is another brilliant way to fully engage your brain. Sitting down to relax is one thing, but having your brain completely engaged can enhance the benefits dramatically.

Organize Your Life

The longer you have to relax, the better. However a lot of people who are time poor will attempt to relax for an hour in the morning, and an hour in the night, or a variation thereof. The better solution would be to pack your relaxation time together. Sure, you can take breaks throughout your day but you’ll be better off relaxing for longer. To get the most out of this you need to consider when you relax best. Is it in the morning before work, or afterwards? Some people work better in the night and others in the day, that’s if you have a choice at all. If you can start to organise your life you might find you have more time for the good stuff. You need to be disciplined sometimes, especially if you have other priorities like kids.
