3 quick relaxation tips

In many parts of the world, Easter holidays are upon us. It’s time to kick off your shoes, meet up with family and friends, eat too much festive food.

Now is a good time to de-stress, especially if the thought of a family gathering makes all your nerves stand at attention. So here are 3 quick relaxation tips:

1. Eat chocolate

Chocolate that contains at least 70% cocoa is rich in anti-oxidants and therefore good for us. So whether Easter eggs are part of your tradition or not, have a little chocolate this season.

2. Take a long bath

Leisure activities like a long bath or shower often fade away when life goes into overdrive. Don’t let them: aqua-therapy really works.

3. Read for pleasure

Reading is part of everyday life. We all read our email, newspapers, specialist literature, books that have won the Booker Prize, instructions on the vitamin pills and our own Working Style Analysis (WSA) found on But the best way to relax is to read something for pleasure. There’s no need to feel guilty about it. Leisure reading is not an indulgence or a waste of time - it is good for your creativity, it expands your mind and exercises your imagination.

Happy Easter!
