8 Healthy and Fun Ways to Spend Your Labor Day Weekend!


By Carolina Cuartas - August 27, 2018

We can all agree the best part about living in Colorado is countless ways to unwind and relax during the weekend! Whether you're deciding to have a mini staycation or heading up to the mountains, we've put together a list of 8 healthy and fun ways to spend your weekend!

1) Zen Your House

I recommend starting this project by silencing your phone and playing some relaxing music. A downtempo or ambient mix will work best for creating a upbeat, but tranquil environment.  Light an incense or spray your favorite cleansing fragrance (eucalyptus spray is a great, cheap option).
 
Now, you are ready to zen out your house. Start by de-cluttering, adding plants, let the light in, play around with earthy, light colors, and remove an unnecessary decor. It'll boost your mood and make you more productive. (Importance of Plants in the House)

2) Work On Your Bucket List
Don’t already have one? Create one and check at least one off. Think about what YOU want to do during your life and work towards those goals! Your bucket list should include both long-term and short-term goals. (How to Make A Bucket List).
 
3) Go Camping
Feel like you need to getaway? Go camping! Camping is an inexpensive and fun way to get away from the hustle and bustle. Spend time in nature, be present, and forget all of your the day-to-day stressors! Don’t have camping gear? Ask a friend!


4) Catch Up On Sleep
If you aren’t getting enough snooze during the week, make sure to allow yourself to sleep in or sleep early.

5) Make A Playlist Of New Podcast
Podcasts are a cheap, easy way to learn and promote self-development. Make a list of what you want to get better at or what you are working towards, and make different playlist with relating Podcast.

6) Practice Yoga
The benefits of yoga is seemingly endless. It’ll improve your posture, recharge your body and mind, keeps your mind clear, boosts your mood, relaxes your system, promotes better sleep, improves your self-esteem, and so much more!
Find donation-based or free yoga classes in your area. If you’re Denver, RiNo Yoga Social is my go-to yoga studio or book a private yoga session at the studio.

 

7) Do What You’re Passionate About
Do you like to paint, read, rock climb, or bike? Unwind by doing what makes you happy. Or, learn a new hobby that can potentially turn into a passion.

8) Spend Time With Your Family and Friends
Most importantly, spend time with your family and friends. There is no better way to decompress and get your mind off work than sharing laughter with the ones you love!
9) Book A Massage!
Massage is a great way to decompress and relieve tension you may have built up! Also, this is a perfect opportunity to get a couples massage or group massage with friends you don't usually have time to spend time with!

We book up pretty quickly during Labor Day Weekend, so make sure to book now!
