In this post we rounded up five simple ways you can take it easy, relax and chill for the long holiday weekend or in your everyday life.
Make quiet time
Create a space where you can clear your mind of everything that is bringing you down. We recommend going to the gym, of course! At Lucille Roberts you can find endless ways (strength training, cardio, amazing classes) to clear your mind of the bad stuff.
A healthy diet can help your body cope better with stress. Fill up on all the colorful good-for-you foods.
Take a moment to figure out what you need and what you don’t need in your life. You should focus your energy on positive things that will make a difference and bring you closer to your goals. For example, if you are on a mission to live a healthier and happier lifestyle, make time for your workouts, to meal prep and, of course, to rest.
Know when to say NO
It is common for us to believe we can do more than what we can actually handle, so often we will say yes to everything. Although the word yes has positive connotations, saying it to every request and proposal can lead to feelings of stress and anxiety. If it is not important to your life, remember it is quite okay to say no.
Pay attention to yourself
Realize when you are feeling uneasy or anxious, like on an overcrowded subway car for example. Become more self-aware and listen to these cues and how you feel in certain situations, etc.
