How to unwind after a long business day


As women in business, we often find ourselves working long, stressful days without much hope of relief in sight. This can have a huge knock on effect to our personal lives and often affects our ability to unwind. It’s important to do activities that help you to chill out, here are our top picks.

Treat yourself to a massage

Obviously this isn’t an every night activity, but a massage at the end of a long week or month can make a huge difference. Been walking around in those power heels all week? Go for a foot massage or pedicure to have you feeling at the top of your game once more.

These massages can even have long lasting health benefits to help you to dominate the boardroom in style. There’s nothing worse than aching feet or a sore back, so make sure you take the time to treat yourself.

Play online games

Just like the office, the realms of online gaming don’t just belong to the men out there. There are lots of games online that you don’t need a high powered PC to play and are accessible even to beginners. These games can be just for fun or you can play them for cash on a lot of sites.

The best bingo sites have a multitude of pay to play games that you can check out, many bingo sites even allow you to play for free. There’s nothing more exciting than winning a big jackpot on one of these!

Have a pamper night

Let’s face it, a spa day isn’t always on the cards but you can do plenty of relaxing things at home. Light some candles, run a bath and watch some of your favourite shows all evening long. We can’t think of anything more relaxing!

Aromatherapy is becoming increasingly popular in the mainstream, you can use wax melts, diffusers or even incense to add that special touch to your evening of relaxation. We’re always finding ourselves multitasking so sometimes it’s nice to do as little as possible for a change.

Prepare for the next day

This may seem a little counter intuitive but creating a clear plan for your day can help it to run a lot more smoothly. If you’re feeling stressed out after a long day then it can be useful to think of how you will improve the rest of your week.

Bullet journals and rapid note taking can offer you a new way to plan your day that fits in sync with the rest of your life. Plus, there’s nothing more satisfying than ticking things off your list the next day. These can assist you in realising that you achieved more than you thought, which can be refreshing on a day that you feel you don’t get anything done!

These stress busting activities will have you feeling better than ever in no time. One of the things that most women in business tend to overlook is their personal wellbeing, so take time for yourself now and again.
