How to switch off during the Bank Holiday

With the first bank holiday weekend of the year coming up, it might seem harder than usual this year for you to switch off from the stresses of work and every day life. It’s time to relax, spend some time with loved ones and take some time for yourself- so here are some handy tips to help you recharge and enjoy the bank holiday..

Get lost in nature

There is so much to see on our doorstep, whether that’s a local park or a quiet woodland nearby. Switching off for a few hours and spending time around nature is great for raising endorphins in the brain, (the feel good hormone) and it’s also a great way to get some exercise in.

Turn your ‘Out of Office’ on

Doing this will help you to feel like you have switched off and also let others in your work circle know that you’re not available.

Get plenty of rest

Don’t feel guilty for catching up on some well earned rest that you may have missed out on. Sleep and rest is important for our recovery, so take time to give your body and mind the rest it deserves.

Enjoy time with good friends

While keeping in mind the 6 person rule, spending quality time catching up with friends is good for us. Enjoying an evening in the garden or a picnic at the park are just some of the ways we can spend time with the people we love.

Take on a project

Is there something you’ve been putting off for a while? It could be a small DIY project in the house or garden, or even a hobby or passtime you’ve wanted to pursue. It’s a great way to take your mind off daily stresses, especially if you usually find it hard to switch off.
