Kick off the new year in a state bliss with a little ‘me time’. Unwind after what is often a hectic holiday season with activities that will calm the mind, relax your body and indulge the senses.

Take yourself out for lunch

You don’t need company to appreciate a delicious meal. Take an afternoon for yourself by enjoying a lunch solo, with the help of a good book or magazine. There are great restaurants and cafes to explore, including Sidewalk Cafe and Mocca Artisan Coffeehouse.

Enjoy a soothing treatment

Massages are an incredibly effective method of relaxation. They also come with a number of valuable health, such as reducing stress and muscle tension while improving circulation, energy levels and your immune function. All Around Wellness has a team of qualified masseuses that can take you from stressed to blessed in as little as 30 minutes.

Go on a waterside adventure with a friend

Find your swimwear essentials from Target and pick out a beach, river or waterhole to explore. Without the distraction of technology, the sounds of crashing waves and bubbling streams can provide a relaxing soundtrack to meaningful conversations.

Set a goal that focuses on relaxation

A start of a new year doesn’t mean you have to set difficult or unachievable goals. This year, try starting new hobbies that are sure to have you feeling more relaxed. It could be a list of books that you’re hoping to work through, encouraging quiet moments alone reading with multiple genres. Alternatively, you could also try a relaxing new activity such as yoga or meditation each morning, to have you starting your day in the right mindset.

Bond over a light-hearted activity

Laughter really is the best medicine, which is why something as simple as seeing a comedy movie or playing a game with a friend can leave you feeling happy and relaxed. Studies have shown that a good, hearty laugh can relieve stress, leaving your muscles feeling relaxed for up to 45 minutes afterwards.

Alt ending for centres without cinemas: There are plenty of games waiting to be played at EB Games such as Nintendo Switch, time to lock in your game night!

Discover an out-of-town location

Hit the road and explore somewhere new. Say hello to some friendly animals at a country estate, explore a picturesque garden or pick delicious berries at a regional farm. Do your research on the best location ahead of time to make the day as carefree as possible. Make sure to pack all the essentials, like a hat, sunscreen and snacks from Coles.
