Before you start thinking that this is a bit cliché, hear me out: hot water is the magical solution to so many of life’s problems. Soaking yourself in a warm bath has been found to improve circulation, lower blood pressure and dilate blood vessels to reduce headaches. If all these health benefits aren’t enough for you, hot water can also work as a skin cleanser and muscle relaxer to help you enjoy the rest of your evening.

For those of you who don’t have a bathtub, or care about the environment and don’t want to waste a lot of water just light up some candles, pop on some soothing music and your tiny, uncomfortable shower will be transformed into paradise.

2. Spoil Yourself

In the 21st century, our appreciation of nature has been put on the back burner. But don’t shut yourself away from the world. Instead, go out and take a walk or bike ride through the park and see how reenergized you feel. Remember to give yourself plenty of time for meditation and quiet reflection. Don’t just embark on this journey like a robot; try to leave behind all the stresses of the day and calm your mind. You will feel both relaxed and content; go green and you will stop feeling blue.
