Sometimes I find that with all of the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it can be hard to relax and unwind on an evening and at weekends. I feel that social media can often make me feel like I should be doing something really exciting, productive and important all of the time. However, it can be just as important to give yourself the time to just relax and wind down and to take a break by doing something that you enjoy. 

So whether it’s watching your favourite film curled up on the sofa with a hot chocolate or going online and entertaining yourself, there are one hundred one different ways to relax and wind down.


One of my favourite ways to relax at home on an evening is by having a girly pamper session. I often start by having a bath and using all of my favourite beauty products and maybe treating myself to a Lush bath bomb. I also like to pamper myself with a facemask, by applying fake tan or just by giving my nails a fresh coat of paint. I find that I am so relaxed once I’ve had a little pamper. I feel so much better after giving myself a little ‘me-time’ and it allows me to not think about any worries of the day and I can enjoy being in the present. 

Games & Puzzles

Another great way to wind down on an evening is by entertaining yourself with games and puzzles. These are a great way to keep your brain active, whilst still getting a real sense of escapism. You can play games on your tablet or laptop like Sims or maybe you can try some online casino games for a real sense of escapism. I don’t personally play on online casinos but James finds it really fun, especially the live roulette game because it allows you to practice either for free or with real money, all from the comfort of your own home. I find that I get that same feeling from adult colouring books, which keep me focused and make feel really relaxed.


One of the best ways to relax and wind down on an evening is by doing one of your hobbies that you can enjoy at home on an evening. This may be doing some baking, watching a new film or taking the time to listen to that new album you’ve had for a while. One of my favourite hobbies is to read and so I love it when I have the house to myself on an evening and I can light a few candles, make myself a nice hot coffee and curl up on the sofa with my latest read.
