It's Time to Take a Break
Even the most skilled adventurers need to take time to refresh! That’s why in today’s blog post, we of Liv Ahwatukee Apartments are encouraging our residents and readers to make time for a break. Whether you live in Phoenix, AZ or somewhere far away, we hope you make relaxation a priority so that you’re well rested for your next adventure! This week’s quest: take time to relax.
Hide your phone. Or just tuck it away somewhere out of sight! A simple way to instantly make a room more relaxing is by removing electronics. Every day, our bodies are stimulated by screens, so it’s probably a good idea to take some time away from them. Spend quality time reading a book, taking a nap, or even relaxing in a bath of hot water. That extra 15, 30, or even 60 minutes without a screen distraction might be worth more to you than you expect.
Cook something. Sometimes it just takes a warm meal to make you feel better. In addition to the many recipes that we’ve shared on our blog, Bustle has a great list of 16 healthy recipes we encourage you to make in the near future. Enjoy dishes like Creamy Butternut Squash Linguine, Beef Bourguignon, and Twice-Baked Potatoes!
Buy a plant. Add a touch of nature in your apartment. According to SheKnows, plants are “a good way to induce relaxations. Despite size, their presence in a room is invigorating. Every room should have something earth-themed to merge nature with the indoors.” We like the sound of that!
We hope you make time to relax this week. Take a break from electronics, cook something new, or buy a plant and add it into your living room as a way to induce relaxation. Whatever you decide to do, remember that this is time specifically for you and nothing else. Don’t worry about your bills or daily stressors… Instead, give your body the much-needed attention that it deserves. If you do, then this quest will be a success!
