Hectic Christmas? 4 Ways to Relax and Get Your Calm Back

As delightful as Christmas was, let’s be honest about things for a second. From stressful last-minute shopping trips to exhausting planning and re-planning to ensure everyone reaches home just in time for the holidays, it’s safe to say that we’re all tired.

Not to mention the pressure of wrapping up those not-so-fun year-end projects and the perpetual backaches from planning Christmas parties and hosting guests.

If you want to throw your hair in a bun and put your feet up for an hour (or two… or six), we get it.

Grab a glass of wine (we won’t judge if it’s filled to the brim) and read along for four fun yet effortless ways to unwind post-holidays.

1. Fun Weekend Trip Minus the Stress

The best way to recharge after a ‘holiday’ filled with way too much adulting for it to truly qualify as one is…taking another holiday.

You heard us right.

It may sound counterintuitive but conventional holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving tend to be packed with responsibilities. Amidst the chores and chaos, it becomes impossible to truly unwind and have a relaxing time.

If your definition of a real vacation involves leaving the mess, drama, work and grocery lists at home, it’s time you plan one.

Book a stunning luxury vacation rental and let others take care of all the draining paperwork for once. With fun-filled packages for kids, groceries delivered to your doorstep and a personal driver, you’ll be able to reap all the benefits of an exciting yet affordable vacation without the effort.

2. Me Time Galore!

It’s time to pamper yourself. If you’re struggling to recover from the emotional, mental and physical labor you invested in making Christmas the starlit affair it was for everyone, you need to rest.

Equivalent to a stress-free vacation, some sweet TLC will help you recover from the exhaustion while splurging on yourself.

We recommend taking a long, relaxing bath with your favorite bath bombs and salts, some soothing candles, great snacks and a Netflix movie. If you’re into retail therapy, treat yourself to a fun yet effortless day of online shopping. Stock up on your favorites and grab some pieces from your wish list guilt-free. You earned it!

3. Unplug

Unplugging from social media can be one of the best ways to relax and detoxify your energy and mind. Pull the plug and say goodbye to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat for a day or two.

Have a soothing girls’ night in, read that book you left dog-eared at Chapter 3, play a board game with your beau or do nothing at all!

Distance from social media will cleanse your mind, body and soul regardless and leave you feeling refreshed—both internally and externally.

4. Inhale Wine and Exhale Drama

Alright, we couldn’t leave the best part out of this.

If you really want to transport yourself to fantasyland post-Christmas, we suggest you Rosé all day in style.

Book a spectacular wine tour and have our driver pick you up in a luxury vehicle (a Maserati or a Mercedes luxury van). You’ll be transported to wine country with a customized sommelier-curated tour, the most exotic wine samplings and a delicious picnic basket lunch.

Opt for a professional massage and personal yoga instruction for an added touch of relaxation that’ll leave you feeling renewed.
