How To Relax and Recharge in London
Every travel enthusiast loves to relax and recharge in London. The wonderful attractions, the tranquil royal parks, and the beautiful local art will never allow you to get bored or be plagued by negative thoughts. But having too many activities on your itinerary can be exhausting and overwhelming. That is why it is always wise to take some time out, relax, and rebalance whenever you visit London.
And even if you are a Londoner, you can easily feel overwhelmed by the city’s huge population and numbing traffic. So, it is time to go out and find peace and quiet. Here are five ways to relax and recharge when visiting- or living- in London:
- Visit the Hampstead Heath Lido
Revitalize your happy spirits on the Parliament Hill Lido, popularly known as Hampstead Heath. This unheated open-air swimming pool has been in existent for the last 8 decades. And although you might find the idea of swimming outdoors in the mostly wet London weather not so appealing, you will definitely be thrilled by the idea of a bracing swim. During summer, you can opt to cool off in the lido or view the beautiful London skyline from the topmost point of the heath. Don’t worry about the height; there are comfortable benches up there. This is a great place to find relaxation and peace, especially if you are struggling with issues such as lack of productivity or concentration. However, if you are struggling with similar issues, you can consult with a life coach, who can help you with advice toward finding the solution to your problems.
- Some Yoga
Yoga centers are abundant in London. Most of them are paid, but all of them are affordable even to a backpacking tourist. The key here is to find a good yoga center for your budget. Yoga teachers will teach you how to practice yoga in as many poses as your time and budget will allow. They will help you master the art of breathing and guide you through intense relaxation. In the end, you will not only have relaxed your mind but you will also have improved your body’s flexibility. And because everyone in the class wants to relax and recharge as much as you do, you will be able to make many friends with whom you share common interests.
- And some massage
Just like yoga, a good massage will help you breathe easy and relax your mind. London is home to massage parlors that apply both ancient and contemporary massage techniques, so the choice is really yours. Professional masseuse and massage therapists will knead, rub, and stretch every muscle in your body until every shred of fatigue, tension, or pain in your body is relieved. If you wish to get away from the bustle and hustle of the city, you can always take a cab to the suburbs for a tranquil massage environment at a private massage sanctuary.
- Visit Barbican Conservatory
This building was built almost 4 decades ago but it hasn’t lost its calming power yet. At Barbican Conservatory, you will have the most tranquil and calm experience in the city. The building’s exterior is calming, but you haven’t been to paradise yet if you haven’t stepped inside. The peace and tranquility here are humbling, to say the least.
Thousands of different plant species live here, making it have a unique tropical vibe. If you want to relive the moment, order a London wall art canvas, once you get back home, and cherish the memories of an unforgettable journey.
While you immerse yourself in the beauty that comes with these plants, remember to have some hot afternoon tea. You sure will love the feeling.
- Mindful eating also works
Mindfulness is one of the most trusted techniques of calming down an anxious mind. If you add this technique to your dining schedule, then you can bet that you are going to have the best time of your life in London. For starters, mindful eating involves eating in a calming atmosphere that is filled with nature-inspired décor. The food is mostly vegan and vegetarian, but you can always improvise on the parts of the diet that you aren’t comfortable with. Besides the menu being plant-based, it is free of additives, chemicals, and sugar. To have the best mindful eating experience, ensure that you chose an eatery that has the most beautifully presented meals and happiest waiters.
