We know what you’re doing—you’re at work, longingly looking at your calendar to count the days until you can take your annual leaves again.

In the meantime, the fact is that there’s still more than two months until you can finally wrap up the year. This usually ends up being hectic, especially when there are still last-minute projects to complete before 2019 officially ends.

Here are some easy ideas on how to relax:

#1 Buy a plant

No, they’re not just for decoration! Plants can help you calm down. A research by Washington State University showed that a group of people who entered a room full of plants had a drop in their blood pressure, compared to those who didn’t see plants.

#2 Look good and you’ll start to feel good too!

Whether you’re about to go to work or meeting up with friends—make the effort to look good! Your self confidence will get a boost, and this will affect your productivity and overall happiness when you’re outside. Also, people will have a more positive perception of you!

Check out Watsons online store for all your skin and hair care essentials and take advantage of the #MYCYBER Sale Asia to enjoy 70% off cosmetic products, plus buy 1 free 1 on selected items! Valid until 3 October.

#3 Take a 10-minute walk

Ten minutes is enough to clear your head and boost your endorphins! We also recommend that you take a walk at a green space, like a park—if you’re lucky to be near one.

#3 Impose a screen break on yourself

If you have to do a lot of work in front of the computer then your eyes need rest! You need to spend at least five minutes every hour away from the screen. That’s totally doable!

(Note: Remember to do some stretching exercises too!)

#4 Sleep better

You’ve probably heard of the advice to get 8 hours of sleep, but it’s also important to sleep well. A few ways you can try to get quality sleep is by not taking caffeine late in the day, reducing long daytime naps, and making your bedroom as comfortable as you can.

#5 Pamper your body

Think of your body as a temple. There are plenty of ways to do this. For example, take a few minutes to slot in some face care, give your scalp a healthy massage with argan oil, and lather your body with body milk before you go to sleep. And while the age-old advice of eating healthy is relevant, you can take supplements if you need them.

Watsons’ #MYCYBER Sale Asia is currently offering up to 50% off on skincare, health and personal care products! Valid until 3 October. Don’t miss out!

We hope you have therapeutic days head of you!
