Modern lives are renowned for being busy, for having a nature that never seems to stop and pause. One of the things that was notable about the lockdown was that many people actually slowed down for the first time in forever, and were able to find a slower pace of life. But with work and school back in most cases, we seem to have joined the rat race once more, and this means we need to take some time to relax and chill, now more than ever.
It doesn’t matter if you take your chill time in the morning, or in the evening, it’s just about that switching off for a moment in order to refresh and recharge.
Have a glass of wine
According to a report in The Metro, red wine really does help you to relax as it blocks enzymes linked to stress and depression. A recent article stated
Scientists say that plant compound resveratrol, found in red wine, helps relieve stress in the brain.

Red wine can also help you to sleep better, and helps to repair your heart and blood vessels if consumed in moderation. So why not enjoy a lovely glass of a full bodied, fruity red like the 306 Biologico Nero d’Avola 2017, produced in a micro winery in Sicily, and a Decanter Silver award winner, now available at Independent Wine.
This is a wine that looks glorious, with a real rich ruby colour, and has a deep flavour of glorious dark berries.There is a suggestion that this works well with pasta and lighter meats, but it is equally luxurious just enjoyed on its own, as a real treat at the end of a stressful tiring day. It literally feels like a soothing blanket as it goes down.

Find an exercise activity that you enjoy
You can also escape the demands of daily life by finding an exercise activity that you enjoy. If you are tight on time, it is important that your workout doesn’t feel like another chore that you have to struggle through. Instead, it should be a great opportunity for you to zone out and show respect to your body. Why not sign up for a range of exciting activities, either online or socially distanced? Hopefully, you will find one that you are truly passionate about and would like to fit into your weekly schedule.
Enjoy a moment of reflection
At the end of each day, you should take a moment to reflect on everything that you have learnt and experienced. It will help you to sort through your emotions and to prepare for the week ahead. One option is to keep a journal and to fill it with all of your innermost thoughts and feelings. You could even have a go at composing your own poems. Or, if writing isn’t for you, you should consider keeping a sketchbook. This is another brilliant opportunity for you to express yourself. If you are going to make the most of your time and enjoy everything that life has to offer, it is important that you have enough breathing space to evaluate your options. You need to make sure that you don’t get so caught up in your daily routine that you lose sight of what you really want from life.
