Dwell Pressure-Free Without having Investing a Dime
If the week leaves you wound up because of a hectic, nonstop schedule, you need a healthy way to let loose. Save your wallet (and your waistline) by skipping the typical Friday night booze and bad-for-you food fest with these weekend stress-relievers. Best of all? They won’t cost you a cent.
- Take Fido for a walk: If you don’t have a dog of your own, borrow a friend’s or volunteer at the Humane Society. Any dog would be psyched to go for a walk with you, and aside from the exercise and fresh air giving you a boost, it’s hard not to breathe easier with a smiley, waggy pooch trotting happily by your side.
- DIY dance party: Whether it’s early Saturday morning or late in the evening, hearing your favorite upbeat song is sure to get your toes tapping. And before you know it, you’ll be full-on grooving while screaming the lyrics and forgetting all about your nine-to-fiver.
- Spend time with nature: Nothing says “ahhh” like a day spent in a serene outdoor setting. Go to a place that makes you feel calm such as the beach or a lake. Pack your favorite snacks, sit down with a journal, and write whatever comes to mind. Jotting down your worries and fears is one way to sort through them and move on.
