Self-Care Tips to Help You Unwind
By: Two EE’s Winery
“You can’t pour from an empty cup.”
Has anyone ever said that to you? We like it because of its indirect allusion to a wine glass, but it means that you can’t properly take care of all the people and things in your life if you don’t first take care of yourself.
So, fill your cup and unwind with our list of self-care tips. And, if you also want to fill your wine glass, we’d love to have you stop by Two EE’s Winery!
Go for a Walk
It sounds like such a simple idea, but going for a walk is a great way to clear your head and unwind after a stressful day. Walking offers several health benefits, but there’s just something calming about breathing in the fresh air as you focus on your steps. As you walk, you can enjoy the sounds of nature if you are in a natural area. Otherwise, listening to an audiobook or podcast are great ways to enjoy some entertainment while you walk.
Get a Massage
Massage therapy is a great way to reduce stress, as well as muscle tension and pain. Whether you work at a desk or on your feet, relaxing your muscles on a massage table with the right music and lighting can be a great way to unwind and release stress.
Take a Bath
Enjoying a hot bubble bath after a long day is another excellent way to pamper yourself. Light a couple of candles and turn on some relaxing music, and soak it all in. A glass of your favorite Two EE’s wine also makes a great accompaniment to this self-care option.
Treat Yourself to a Shopping Trip
Huntington County is home to a large variety of great local shops and boutiques. If you love to shop, an afternoon of meandering the downtown streets of Huntington, Warren, Roanoke, and Markle will give you just the dose of retail therapy that you need! After your shopping adventures are over, feel free to stop by Two EE’s Winery to purchase a bottle of wine to take home with you.
Visit with Family or Friends
As we have all realized during recent quarantine and social distancing procedures, nothing beats the healing power of connecting with family members and friends. Though it’s still important to make smart choices during our current pandemic, there are many ways to safely communicate with your loved ones. Virtual happy hours are a great way to connect from the safety of your own home, and small gatherings outdoors are also fun. Whether you opt for a virtual or in-person chat, you might enjoy trying one of our summer cocktail recipes made with Two EE’s wines.
So, Take a Break Today!
It’s such a busy world, and this year has been exceptionally stressful for everyone. There are always things that need to get done, but we encourage you to give yourself a break when you need one. Productivity and to-do lists are helpful, but many things can be moved to tomorrow as needed. Don’t forget to take care of yourself first!
If your choice of self-care activity would be better with some locally made wine, we’d love to help you choose a bottle to match your taste. We hope to see you soon!
