Relaxing during your Boca Raton evenings is a difficult goal for most of us. We live in a fast-paced, busy world! Your mommy to-do list and the voices in the back of your mind telling you to be MORE, and to do BETTER, don’t help either.
Thinking too much is an unfortunate consequence of spending too much time alone. We get it. This past year, isolation was necessary for safety. But, it has nevertheless been destructive to mental health. Let’s take back control, one Boca Raton evening at a time, using these tips to have the most relaxing nights ever!
How to Have the Most Relaxing Boca Raton Evenings
Practice Letting Go
When we spend too much time by ourselves, the only thing that’s there to really keep us company is our mind. This is problematic because we are a species that has evolved out of threat and a preoccupancy with survival. Though, for the most part, we no longer have to fight for our food and safety, we do still have the mental programming to look for threats. This just means that when your mind is bored, it’s going to start looking for issues.
For many of us, the problems we perceive in our minds will pile up if we don’t practice the art of letting go. Letting go means observing your thoughts, feelings and sensations without judgment or attachment. Like leaves on a stream, we watch passively as they come and go.
The more you practice this, the less musing you will experience over time. You can train your mind to quiet itself down with practice. We recommend practicing the art of letting go every evening to reduce the amount of worry you experience. You can meditate, journal, or distract yourself to practice letting these worries come and go without attaching to them or analyzing what they mean.
Honor Your Comfort
It’s easy to get into the habit of believing that we simply don’t have time to take care of ourselves. This is especially true for moms. We neglect the care of our homes because we are spending most of our time at work, exercising, running errands, etc. We come home to an unmade bed and we wake up to one.
Honor your comfort and your Boca Raton evenings by preparing your room for sleep. Use quality bedding and sheets to maximize your comfort, and invest in something like the Luna cooling weighted blanket for comfort and anxiety relief. The materials you use for sleep make a huge difference to your comfort level. Honor your comfort needs and see how much your evening relaxation and sleep improves!
Drink Something Warm
Simple rituals to wind down the day make all the difference. We recommend sipping herbal tea before bedtime to ease into a relaxing evening with warmth flooding your body. Heat turns on the relaxation systems in the body, signaling that fight-or-flight mode is no longer needed at this time. When you let your body know it’s time to relax, you’ll find it’s much easier to enjoy the moment!
Spend Time With Family
To savor your Boca Raton evenings, do things with your family that promotes togetherness and relaxation. Work on puzzles together, play board games, read a story aloud, or watch something relaxing. As long as you are with the people you love and you’re occupying your mind with something enjoyable, you’ll be making the most of your evenings.
Maximizing your evening relaxation requires you to set the intention and take inspired action to make the most of it. Follow these tips and you’ll be well on your way!
