5 Activities That Help Me De-Stress

Stress can come and go, and the reasons we become stressed are present in our day to day life. Although it’s nearly impossible to de-stress when something major is happening in your life, it IS possible to take your mind away from things. Here are 5 ways in which I de-stress:


One of my favourite things to do at the moment is to get under the covers, surround myself with pillows and blankets, and watch Gossip Girl in bed. I’ve seen the show before, but it really is an indulgent watch – and it’s something I could watch over and over again without getting bored. If I’m really stressed, I’ll tidy my room beforehand, making sure to change my bedding, light some candles and close the curtains. It might sound silly, but a tidy room is a tidy mind in my opinion.


One of my most favourite things to do EVER is to buy a bath bomb/bath salts, light tealights and listen to some old school blues in the bath. The water has to be volcano temperature, and I’ll sometimes but on a facemask. I think there’s a lot to be said for taking some time away from everything and just sitting with your own thoughts. You can put the world to right, or make a plan for the future.


Me and Kyle are always at the cinema. We have Cineworld Unlimited, which is boss! And we love sitting down to watch a film (with popcorn and a tango ice blast obvs) before giving a new film our full attention. We recently went to see Lady Bird, and both loved it! Getting into a film is a great way to take your mind away from things – so why not book tickets to the latest film and give it a go.


If you know me, you’ll know that I love food. I can’t help it haha, it’s so good! I also love finding new places to eat. Sometimes I’ll make a big deal out of it (get dressed up etc) or sometimes me and my mates will end up in new places without planning it. I find that planning a nice meal at the weekend is also a great way to stay on track with my healthy eating throughout the week as well!


Sometimes, one of the best ways to take your mind off of something is to read. I have a list of about 15 books I really want to read at the moment, and finding a spare hour in my week to get through a few chapters of a book can really chill me out. When I’m looking for a new book, I’ll browse the Amazon book department and see what’s new/trending that week! I also made a Wishlist for books, which I’ll order from when my list depletes a little…
