Some people might like going to a tranquil spa, or getting their nails done. Still others say “Rush my food” and order dinner online. Each person is unique and so is their technique at recovering from a terrible day at the office. But here are a few ways to recover from a terrible day at the office that seem to help ease stress for most people.
- Bubble Baths
Bubble baths can be extremely relaxing to people who are stressed. The warm water and the aromatherapy from the bubbles or whatever scent you decide to splash in your own water helps relax the mind, and the muscles. Relieving the tension of whatever terrible day you just had.
- Indulging In Chocolate
For some people, mainly females, like to dig in to one of their forbidden treats. Chocolate bars, chocolate cake, chocolate martinis, whatever it might be, as long as it has that rich, chocolate flavor. Some have studies shown that chocolate is equivalent to sex and releases endorphins to help the body relieve tension and bring peace to the mind and body. No wonder so many people eat chocolate after a long and terrible day.
- Foot Massages
Foot massages can be the next best thing alongside chocolate when trying to recover from a terrible day at work. From personal experience I know for a fact after a long stressful day at work, my feet ache terrible. I might not even have to stand for that long before my feet start to hurt. It feels like all the tension I had throughout the day just goes to my feet. The feet bringing so much ache, a nice foot massage always does the trick to forgetting how terrible a day you had.
- Playing Your Favorite Song
Playing one of your favorite songs is like going back in time to the happiest memories in your life. You remember all the good times you had and how care-free and happy you instantly felt, just by hearing that one song you love. Having something like a favorite song that can bring up happy memories in an instant can help one recover from a terrible day at the office.
- Going On A Walk
Going for a walk can not only help shed those extra calories you ate from your Monday morning muffin, but also clear your mind. Taking walks or even going on jogs gives you a time to think and even relax, especially if you are at a nice, scenic area. Going on a walk can bring your mind at ease. Thinking of other things and solving things besides thinking of the terrible day you had at the office is a sure way to recover from your day at work.
So a terrible day at the office could possibly have its upside. Not only do you get some exercise in your day, but you get to indulge in some of your favorite things just because of the terrible day you had. I guess if I had a choice, I hope to recover from work every day.
