The mere thought of getting a break from work, school or parenthood is exciting for anyone. However, when the time does come, we have no idea what to do with all this free time on our hands so as usual we resort to being glued to the TV or laptop and binge watching shows while stuffing our faces with every snack available; this is not the way to go people! Let’s be productive pilates courses Melbourne and get the most out of this upcoming holiday.
Try something you have never done before
Whenever we’re bombarded with work and endless responsibilities, we tend to repeat ourselves by saying ‘I wish I had the time to go shopping or take a trip’ or whatever it is that you desire. Now you have the time so we suggest you take full advantage of it. Whether it is trying new food, joining a sport of living out in the wilderness; do something you have always wanted to do.
Throw a party
What better way to spend your holidays than plan a big party. The planning process alone is going to keep you occupied and we cannot deny the fact that it’s fun. Make a list of people you want to invite, get the food and drinks sorted and you’re ready to go. To make it a little more exciting, have a theme based on the weather. If it’s summer, then have a beach theme or perhaps if it’s winter you can organize a slumber party with all your friends watching horror movies and sipping on hot cocoa, all snuggled up in cozy blankets.
Being a couch potato is the last thing you want to be doing during your holiday. When you have a schedule that rarely allows you to sit for a nice meal, it would also mean that you don’t have time to get in the daily exercise necessary. If gym is not your thing, grab a Pilates DVD or sign up for a dance class. We all need to learn how to salsa at one point in our lives. There are countless things you can do to keep your body moving and you don’t have to do it alone. Gather a few of your friends and family and come up with something creative, if you happen to have a pilates DVD, plan to meet at least twice a week; this will help stretch your body out, be flexible and ease any aches and pains, all while having a good laugh with your mates.
Your mind is forever tensed from all the piles of work and deadlines; if getting out of bed is the last thing you want to do then the thought of being active may certainly put you off. If that’s the case resort to something a little more soothing such as yoga, reading, getting a massage, trying out some sewing or art; this would be just as helpful as any of the above tips.
Transform your holiday from purely watching movies and eating, to something creative and dynamic. You’re ought to feel so much better when you return to your busy schedule after having a holiday full of memories that do nothing but ease your mind even when you think about it. Therefore, get planning because you’re going to be having lots of fun this coming holiday.
