Feel the need to switch off? You’re not the only one. And you shouldn’t feel guilty about it.
3 ways to rest and refresh your mind

Giving your mind a rest is essential for maintaining a happy, energetic, productive life, but the thoughts of the day racing through your mind, switching off isn’t always as easy as it sounds.

Get some zen

If you’ve not tried meditation before, it’s not about sitting cross-legged on the floor going ‘ummm’.

It’s about clearing your mind of the stresses and strains that can weigh you down. Meditation is a practice where an individual uses a technique – such as mindfulness, or focusing the mind on a particular object, thought, or activity – to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state.

Clear your mind

Exercise is a known solution for stressed minds and clouded thoughts. As well as releasing endorphins in the brain, physical activity helps to relax the muscles and relieve tension in the body. Since the body and mind are so closely linked, when your body feels better so, too, will your mind. Nike offers mindfulness focuses running guides that can help you move past those negative thoughts.

Soothe your soul

Keeping active is good, but when you stop it can be all too easy to let the thoughts of the day seep through, distracting you from your evening film or game session. Expressing yourself or confiding in a loved one who you really trust really helps.
