Digital Detoxtips for relaxing on holiday

Turn off, shut down and log out. Your holiday is the perfect opportunity to start seeing the world through your eyes and not your screen. We often spend far too much time socialising through technology instead of having a good old-fashioned conversation with our friends and family. So take this time to switch off from the world and enjoy quality time with yourself and your loved ones.

Read a good booktips for relaxing on holiday

Get lost in a good book. Reading is one of the best ways to relax and reduce stress. As we concentrate on reading and get distracted by the storyline, it takes us away from our own world, allowing our minds to destress and forget any troubles. So spend your holiday time wisely and pick up that book you’ve been wanting to read for ages, but just haven’t found the time for.

Enjoy The Silence

Take some time out to sit in silence and breathe. Meditation is wonderful for reducing stress, providing clarity, beating anxiety and improving concentration. Practising meditation doesn’t take long. Spend 10 to 20 minutes a day being mindful. Sit in a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed and just concentrate on your breathing, allowing your thoughts to just drain away. If you feel a thought entering your head, just focus on breathing in and out until it goes away. You’ll feel tranquil and calm afterwards.
