Take a break from wedding planning and enjoy the long weekend. You deserve it! Here are a few ideas to get you started.

 

1. Streeeetch. Give yourself 5 minutes to energize in the morning and wind down at night. Stretching paired with deep breathing is one of the best ways to de-stress.

 

2. Spend some much-needed time outdoors soaking up the sun’s warm rays. (We recommend sunscreen, of course.)

 

3. Visit the local farmer’s market and get yourself a bouquet of wildflowers to brighten up your home all weekend long.

 

4. If you’re at the lake, by a creek or along the ocean, dip your feet in some calm, cool waters. There’s nothing more refreshing.

 

5. Then, get a pedicure. (You didn’t think this whole list was going to be all naturál, did you?)

 

6. Devour a tasty treat you know you shouldn’t have, like your favorite bag of chips or some chocolate treasure from the local bakery.

 

7. Meet with a good friend for morning coffee or breakfast. There’s something so pleasant about early morning visits!

 

8. Take a long walk in your favorite part of town or nearby park. Don’t have one? Find one!

 

9. Get a massage — you can’t have a list of relaxation tips without this classic.

 

10. Buy one new item of décor for your home — a new plant, vase, floor rug, etc. Every time you admire it, you’ll be reminded of your relaxing weekend spent doing whatever made you happy.
