Raise your hand if you ever have trouble relaxing at the end of the day. I’m pretty sure all of us have our hands up! Especially as women, we wear many different hats throughout the day that we’re usually stressed, exhausted, whatever by the end of the work day. And, it’s not always easy to transition to a different mindset. That’s why today I’m sharing three ways to unwind after a long day. No gimmicks, no difficult steps to follow. Just straight-forward, easy ideas to help you relax and reset.

Three Ways to Unwind After a Long Day


There’s seriously few things that I look forward to more than a shower at the end of the day. Even if I’m not washing my hair, it’s a few minutes that I can be left alone to calm down and clear my head. I also take the opportunity to indulge in using some shower shower products that I don’t use on the daily. #Treatyoself, right?

AVEENO® products have been a part of my life since I was a child. Since I have such sensitive skin and suffer from body acne, I’m really picky about body wash. AVEENO® Skin Relief Body Wash is the best of both worlds for skin like mine! It has a creamy, luxurious formula, but it’s gentle enough for sensitive skin. My skin always is left soft and smooth after I wash and rinse with this body wash.

I’m also still loving the AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® 60 SECOND IN-SHOWER FACIAL. I started to use this product a few months ago when it first was released. It’s the ultimate end-of-the-day at-home spa treatment. Radiant, glowing skin in just 1 minute? Yes, please! The AVEENO® Positively Radiant® 60 Second In-Shower Facial is oil-free, so I haven’t experienced any breakouts or irritation. I use this once a week in the shower at the end of the day in place of my regular cleanser. Oh, and both the AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® 60 SECOND IN-SHOWER FACIAL and AVEENO® Skin Relief Body Wash are available at Walmart so you can’t beat the accessibility or affordability!

What better way to relax than to slip out of your work clothes or skinny jeans and into your favorite lounge-wear? I don’t know about you, but I kind of live for this time of day. Come 5 p.m., no matter what I’m in the middle of doing I almost always take a break to put sweatpants on. The simple change of clothes instantly puts me in a more relaxed, comfortable mindset.


After a long day (or really, any type of day), I’m a firm believer in a little “me” time. No matter what it is – reading, cooking, watching TV, knitting, etc. – indulging in something that’s solely for you can help to get your mind off the day’s earlier activities to settle in for a chill evening. A glass of vino during your chosen activity and/or doggy snuggles usually doesn’t hurt either.
