3 Ways To Unwind When Home No Longer Feels Like Home

For the past few weeks, home hasn’t really felt like home. So much is going on, that the space I lay my head down doesn’t allow me to unwind and be at ease. I honestly feel more at peace when I am at work. Shocking right? Tell me about it.

See, when I’m at work my mind isn’t racing about the million and one things that aren’t currently right in my life. I’m only focused on what is in front of me at that moment. Now trust me, work can get hectic and exhausting (I work very long hours) but i love it. I love the atmosphere! It’s a crazy kind of calm.

Unfortunately, due to my personal goals, finally getting ready to have a space of my own (yup, apartment posts coming soon), “dating” and still healing from the death of a friend, I feel like I’m trying to figure out the most difficult math equation known to man. And my current state of living does not help. Everything is everywhere, I’m temporarily sharing my space with my niece whom I adore but it’s time to go hunty!!! I’m just never alone and me time has never been this needed in my life as I need it now.

So, I’ve come up with a few things that I jotted down on my to do list:


  1. Work out. Consistency in this department is my biggest downfall which is very unfortunate because when I started to really get into the groove of it I noticed that my energy was up and my spirit was high. But, when you want to spend all your time with that special someone, somehow someway your routines aren’t routines anymore and you put your personal things aside just to be around that person (I should’ve saved this for an entirely different post, but y’all catch my drift). Either way I plan to get back to it *enter strong arm emoji here*).
  2. Go to a spa. This would definitely do my body good right now. Lordt, knows I need to loosen up these muscles. I’m so tense from the stress that is weighing on me. Relieving this tension is now top priority.
  3. Hang out with friends. One thing I’m not too proud of is when I’m going through something I block out my friends. Instead I should go out and take my mind off of things. I just hate bringing not so great energy to the party. Even though I know once I get around my amazing friends I’d be in a positive place.

I will definitely keep you posted as I try out these three things in the near future. If you have any additional tips ideas or suggestions on ways to unwind when you can’t do it in your own home, drop a line or two below!

Forever Stripped,
