We live in such a hectic and fast-paced world that sometimes we feel like everything around is just an infinite list of work and life to-dos. When you’re stressed out it’s even harder to stay focused and to be efficient, it’s more complicated to prioritize, and it’s actually impossible to get things done. Is it really worth it? We think not!
So how do you lay back, relax, and allow your thoughts and tasks to get back in line? Sometimes we might find it very difficult to hit the ‘pause’ button and just go offline for a bit – leaving all emails and reminders behind. Well, we have some options that you might find both useful and fun and that will help with you disconnect!
Have you ever tried to dance it out? Playing your favorite songs and letting your mind and body have some fun? Well, you really should! Problems will seem less pressing, tasks will be left far behind, the mood will be switched to instant-happy, and calories will be burnt! How cool is that?
Talking about cool stuff – what do you think about cultivating your hobby? It might be about reading a book written by your favorite author, half an hour of relaxing yoga, going for a quick run, handcrafting some nice decorations for your cozy home or going out and about to discover new places in your town. Whatever makes you feel like you have all your ducks in a row! This way you can relax while getting better at the things you love most!
Now let’s talk about what’s important in life – food! A study published in the Journal of Positive Psychology suggests that people who take time to cook or bake feel more enthusiastic about their pursuits the next day. This doesn’t mean you must be an experienced chef or to follow very complex recipes. Not at all – you can just start by cooking your favorite meal, a tasty snack for a movie night or a tummy-hugging dessert to reward yourself! Whatever you choose, it will make the stress just vanish – trust us!
But just in case you need some inspiration from a Culinary Artist – we have it ready for you at TEDxBucharest11. Charles Michel will take the stage on November 16th and share with you his vision and plans on inspiring solutions for important challenges. And maybe some of his techniques on living a stress-free life! So let’s meet on November 16thand 17th and share ideas worth seeking!
