My Top 4 Ways to Relax My Mind After a Long Week

Nothing stresses me out more than having a long day. And when one long day turns into another long day – and then becomes an entire week – it can really take a toll on me. By week’s end, my brain feels depleted, with nothing more to give to go into the weekend.

That feeling just doesn’t fly when you live in a house with 4 other people. Schedules are rampant, to-do lists are unending, and no matter how I try to fight it, the following week is on its way. So when a long week has mentally worn me down, I turn to one (or all) of my four trusted tools to help me relax my mind, recharge, and ready my myself for the days ahead.

Tune out with YouTube

When it seems like my world is going crazy and I need a break from it all, one of the tools I turn to is YouTube. I search a category (ie.: cute cats, military reunions, or even classic comedy routines) and become instantly disconnected from the week’s woes, with overwhelming laughter or heartwarming happiness.

Get Wrapped Up in Reading

Another great escape that helps me to relax my mind after a long week is getting lost in a good book. I choose from my home collection, or I may even download an e-book on my phone to read.

Escape to the Movies

If the budget (and babysitting) allows, going to the movies to view the latest action flick is one of my favorite ways to relax my mind after a long week. Call me crazy, but the thrills and high-impact scenes of films like ‘Avengers 2 and ‘Fast and Furious 7’ take my mind to another place. I leave out of the theater feeling reenergized every time..

Get Lost in Games

Sometimes I want more than just more than just to watch something in order to relax my mind after a long week. Sometimes, I want something interactive and engaging. That’s when I turn to mobile games through the GSN Games app. I love the Wheel of Fortune Slots and Deal and No Deal Slots games. Even participating in online gaming such as Bejeweled 2 and Scrabble Cubes help me to unwind while experiencing the joy of winning and friendly competition.

Surviving a long week is indeed a big accomplishment! So whenever it happens, taking the time to relax my mind helps me to not only leave the stresses of the previous week behind me, but also to be prepared for whatever life throws my way in the week to come.
