As busy, working professionals, we all look forward to our downtime. So, here are our top five favorite things to do to make sure you’re getting the most out of your days off!
Rest is so important, especially after a busy week of work shifts! So, put on a pair of your comfiest AMPM Yoga Athletic Scrubs, grab a book or movie and get those feet up! This may seem like an easy one; however, many of us busy bees still try to cram a whole week's worth of cleaning, chores, and laundry into our precious days off, and it's severely impacting your relaxation time! Try to do a little bit of housework every day (or morning) so that when your day off rolls around, you're free to do whatever you'd like!
We talk a lot about self-care here at AMPM Scrubs and its significance to the overall health of the mind, body, and soul. Self-care can come in many forms, whether it’s a bubble bath and facemask combo or a walk through the countryside. Whatever helps you to feel contented, both mentally and physically, is going to ultimately improve your state of mind and get you ready for another week ahead.
Spend time with family & friends
As a working professional, do you find that on any given day you’re running from meeting to an appointment, with no time in between to see loved ones? On your days off, set aside some time to see your favorite people and reconnect. In the 21st century online-world it's essential we still make time for the ‘offline’! Why not host a summer BBQ or invite your best friend over for coffee this weekend?
Following on from self-care, exercise is also important! If you're not a person who generally works out at the gym, walking can be an excellent solution for you. Walking has many benefits, such as improving your mood, encouraging the production of insulin within the body and decreasing stomach bloating! You can walk anywhere, take the dog for a walk around the block, walk to your local shops or take a trail through nature, whatever you chose, exercising is sure to make you feel your best!
I think this is our favorite to-do, as having self-professed ‘wanderlust,' exploring a new place, meeting new people, and learning new things has more benefits than you can imagine. Not only will you reap the advantages but you'll also have memories that last a lifetime! Whether it's visiting a neighboring town you've never been to before or hopping on a plane to another state; we encourage you to pack your bag and get exploring!
