Life can be stressful sometimes, and you will often find that you are tired out by the end of the day so much that you have no energy left to enjoy your social life. Here are some of the ways that you can calm down after a long week and reset your body and mind for the weekend.


Switch off

The most important thing you need to do on a Friday evening when you leave work is LEAVE WORK. Don’t bring any thoughts of work home with you on a Friday night, this is your personal time now and you need to enjoy it with all of your effort. Leave work in the office and come home to enjoy your time with family and with your loved ones.

Music

When you get home,you can get cooking dinner for the night and put on some relaxing music to get you ready for the weekend. Music is great for the soul and it will help you to forget about the stress of the week and instead just enjoy being at home with the people you love most in the world.

Crack open the wine

When you come home on a Friday night you will want to relax completely, and the best way to do this is to enjoy a soothing glass of wine with your dinner. 
Wine is a treat and this is a great way to celebrate another week over and look forward to your plans for the weekend.

Settle in

Get your shoes slippers on, wrap yourself up in a dressing gown and chill out downstairs with your family for the night. You can turn off the main lights, light some candles and put on your favourite film to watch with the family. Watching a good movie is comforting and it will make you feel ready to enjoy your free time for the next two days.

Meditate

Meditation isn’t only for yoga lovers, it is a relaxation technique which is great for everyone. If you feel stressed out and you feel as if you are burning out after the week, you can sit down for 10 minutes, close your eyes and focus on nothing but the sound of your breath and the blood pumping in your veins. It is like pressing a reset button on your brain and you will feel refreshed and ready to relax once you are done with it.

Have a bath

In the summer, this one s probably not the best idea, but when it starts to get cold in the winter you will be able to relax by running a hot bath, bringing your favourite book into the room with you, and lighting some candles in the room for a spa like atmosphere. Take this opportunity to have a hair and face mask and give yourself a mini pamper session. By the time you are done you will feel clean, warm refreshed and happy to start off the rest of your weekend with a bang.
