    I guess the questions in the title. What healthy things do you do to relax and unwind, particularly after stressful periods?

    Long warm showers with classical music is a big one I do. Long walks. Deep breathing exercises, meditation with binaural beats. Hanging around family. Journaling.

    Cycling gets my mind off things for a bit and provides social contacts.
    Movies at home.
    Projects around the house.
    Naps.
    Social evening out (sometimes a date but not lately) that includes a nice dinner followed by walking, talking, maybe gelato and a play or other cultural activity like a museum.

    Aromatherapy. I burn sticks of incense and it helps me calm down and get into a healthy state of mind.

    I like going to the gym, gaming and going for a walk while listening to music.

    Listening to music and watching videos on YouTube. Running and walking on the beach/mountains near me is also very therapeutic by myself or with a friend or family member.

  12. What I wrote in my list: reading, playing video games, listening to some music, putting essential oils on, defining a time at which I don't work anymore, exercise, colouring book, turning off my phone, classing pics on my computer, drinking herbal tea, taking a shower, an idea box with activities ideas in it, yoga, tv shows and movies, taking a walk, making playlists on Spotify.

    Define relax as how how ancestors relaxed and you will feel relaxed .
    Do not use modern relaxation methods as they will leave you feeling empty and wanting more
