Getting the Most Out of Your Time Off

By Donna Stark

If your days are packed with the hustle and bustle of life from the moment you wake up to the moment you fall asleep at night, you probably consider any free time you get a luxury. But what happens when you actually have a lot of time to indulge, like when bad weather shuts down your school or when you are away on vacation? Of course, you can use some of that time to relax, but you should also do something meaningful with the rest. Here are some suggestions on what you can do from your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic.

Engage Your Senses

It's true, Mother Nature never disappoints. And there are few things more fulfilling than the time you get to spend with her. Reduce your stress, stimulate your senses, and get some extra Vitamin D by doing something outside when you have extra free time. You could take your dog for a walk, go paddle boarding at your local lake, or invite a group of friends to hike a nearby trail. Or, if you want to do something a little less active, you could simply read a book on your front patio or pick some flowers for your kitchen table. The options for things to do are endless!

Tidy Up Your Home

Relaxing during your free time is a great way to reduce stress, but do you know what else can do that too? Tidying up your home. Even if you just have 10 or 15 minutes, there are plenty of things you clean up. Clear out the expired food in your refrigerator, organize your junk drawer, or fold the laundry that's been sitting on your bed for weeks. You'll be surprised by how much of a difference this makes with your day-to-day moods.

Explore a New City

On vacation and tired of sitting by the pool? Well, you can always get dressed and use your time to explore the local surroundings! Ask a local resident for suggestions of things to do. Most people are excited to recommend their favorite restaurants and activities, and you will be sure to have a great time following their advice. It's so much better than wasting your day away being bored by the pool.

Using Your Time Wisely

Yes, you can do both! You can relax all you want and use your time doing something meaningful, so don't let those minutes slip away. Give your body what it needs and your spirit a little extra adventure by using your time wisely.
