As a member of the beauty consultant industry, you work hard. You’re out there getting new recruits, sales, and leads. On top of that, you’re managing your unit and training new members. Plus, you can’t forget to keep up with your inventory, receipts, bills, and more! Some days you can get stressed out and get stuck in go mode, causing you to get tense and stay up all night! Learn how to destress and unwind at the end of the day with our relaxation tips.
How To Relax After Work
When you get home, make sure that you’ve left your work at the office. Turn off your phone and ignore your emails. It’s perfectly fine to enter your do not disturb mode to unwind and focus on yourself after a long day.
If you’re in for the night then change as soon as you get home. Take off your heels and put on the slippers. Nothing helps a person relax more than their favorite pair of comfy pants. From yoga tights to sweats, wear whatever you feel best in.
A great way to destress is by working out a little. You don’t have to join a gym or go for a run. Simply walking around the block, stretching, and practicing yoga will get your blood flowing. As you gently work your muscles the tension, stress, and anxiety will be relieved. Plus, working out causes your body to produce endorphins so you’ll be in a better mood.
By getting out and walking you’ll be in nature. Seeing plants and animals, as well as breathing the fresh clean air that plants provide is a great way to relax and feel better.
Take some time to pamper yourself with your favorite sugar scrub or face mask. The minerals in these items will leave you feeling refreshed. Plus, the act of taking care of yourself will boost your mood.
Speaking of yourself, remember to indulge in you time. Make time for one of your favorite activities. Maybe you like to cook, maybe you like to watch reality tv, or maybe you like to read romance novels. Whatever your ‘you time’ activity is, we won’t judge. Have fun!
Sometimes when things are all business we can get a little stressed out, that’s why it’s a good idea to call or meet up with a friend for a chat. Catch up and make jokes to get your mind off work for a while. Maybe you can even talk about what’s been stressing you out to get it off your chest. While you’re with your BFF it might be a good time to unwind with a glass of wine too.
Another great way to relax is by meditating. You can take a few moments to sit still and clear your mind, or you can listen to relaxing music to lose yourself in the beat. There are also a number of guided meditation apps you can listen to.
