1. the most important comes early in the morning!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day – and rightly so! With a balanced start to the day, you supply your body with essential nutrients and thus provide it with the fuel to have enough energy and good mood for the whole day! If your body receives enough vitamins, minerals, trace elements and superfoods already in the morning, this can also have a positive effect on how your body deals with stressful situations! So, best take enough time for your breakfast – and make it a celebratory occasion – every day: Relax, Refresh & Recharge! Tip: To start the day REALLY relaxed and refreshed, check your emails at work – and not at the breakfast table! That way, you’re still giving yourself time to prepare for a long day and enjoy your meal.

2. recovered during the work!

The workday is still long and your only thoughts are to finally have off, enjoy the free time, put your feet up and just switch off? Caution is advised here! Recreation does not only take place in leisure time or on vacation! Rest should also take place before and especially during your working hours – the positive effect of several small breathers during work has even been proven! The stress is reduced in this way, your work-life balance is balanced and you immediately feel much better! Tip: How about a little meditation during your lunch break? Meditating reduces stress, boosts creativity and invigorates brain activity! So, just relax for a minute!

3. exercise and sports!

Sport and recreation in one sentence sounds strange to you? But it should not! If you work a lot, have stress and want to relax, you should integrate a lot of exercise and sport into your daily routine! Nothing is more relaxing than a walk or a short bike ride with your loved ones – discovering nature and discussing the wonders of the world – wonderful! However, it doesn’t matter if an outing, yoga session, or power boxing class is restorative for you – exercise and sports are healthy! Daily exercise starts various processes in the body, so among other things, your immune system is strengthened, your muscles strengthened and your soul relaxed! Tip: Whether your office is on the fourth floor or you want to get to the second floor of a shopping center, resist the temptation of escalators and elevators and take the stairs!

4. take time for yourself!

How about a hot relaxing bath? It relaxes the body and mind, helps you relieve stress and can release tension in the body! With a 15-minute relaxing bath, you can switch off in a flash and escape from everyday stress. Close your eyes and think of beautiful things you have experienced in the past and want to experience in the future! This lowers blood pressure and the body reaches a state of relaxation! Tip: However, pay attention to the water temperature: 36-38 degrees Celsius are optimal to avoid stressing the heart and circulation. Indirect lighting, candles, your favorite song and essential oils can additionally help you recover quickly!

5. get enough sleep!

Look forward to your sleep! After a long, tiring day, there’s no better feeling than falling into bed at night and letting go of your thoughts and problems! A little ritual before bed can help you come down and relax! It doesn’t matter if it’s your daily cup of tea, reading your favorite book, or a little meditation! By repeating activities every day, you’re showing your body that it’s now time to let go and call it a day! Tip: Try to sleep between 6-8 hours a day! This is the optimal time for your body to recover and you can start the new day with vigor! Each of us relaxes differently, of course! It can be just as relaxing to kick back in front of the TV as it is to get together with friends and talk out all your frustrations! And one thing is certain: If you integrate these five basic tips into your everyday life, your relaxation level is guaranteed to rise! Our last tip: LAUGH! Positive thinking in everyday life helps you to approach things with joy and vigor and to prevent stress!
