Tips & Tricks To Help You Relax
Sometimes we skip relaxation time in place of getting more work done and conquering the to-do list, but this cheats us from enjoying moments in our day and can negatively impact our mental health.
This relaxation diary is not only a great reminder to take relaxation moments but is also a valuable tool to document and assess the daily pockets of time that work well and should be protected in order to stay mentally healthy and happy.
Relaxation Diary – Directions and Results
Directions for completing your relaxation diary:
- Record any relaxation techniques or activity you undertake during the day, over the length of a week. Aim for 3 moments in your working day.
- Assess and note down how effective each relaxation technique/activity was by rating it on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 = not effective to 10 = highly effective).
- Think about past successful relaxation activities as well as experimenting with new techniques. Monitor your results to determine what works best for you and strive to schedule non-negotiable daily relaxation moments that help support your mental wellness.
