Work! However faraway, however long it takes, however you get there; it does not have to be a ‘rush hour’ anymore.

It is the relax hour and not the rush hour!

Follow these useful tips; to make the morning rush hour as relaxing as possible:

– Enjoying the morning is made easier by preparing the night before. Make your packed lunch or any food you will need whilst out at work. Choose your clothes and lay them out; so you are sure you have everything, even two socks!

– Choose a light easy breakfast that is easy to prepare and quick to eat. My personal favourites are scrambled eggs or a toasted ham and cheese sandwich.

– Allow extra time for delays and leave the house early. Is it bin day and the bin lorry is blocking the main road? Will the local farmer be herding his cattle across your usual short cut? Will you have to wait at a train crossing?

– In winter, allow time for your car to warm up and deice the windows. Maybe put a cover or blanket over them the night before?

– However, if you are running late; do not worry, it is better to be late than never!

– Many people drive to work; yet just walking or using the bus or train, do not feel the need to rush. No job in the world is worth the risk of an accident.

– If you have the play music or listen to the news; try to choose a more relaxing channel. Studies show that listening to music with a beat faster than your heart rate will cause you to speed up!

– If you do arrive for work early, then use the spare time to relax in to your works pace. Make a drink, speak to your colleagues, or just ease yourself into that first assignment.

    Start Point If you go down to the sea in Devon; past the bright lights of Torquay and the fishing boats of Brixham. Then on past the safety of the River Dart and long Slapton Sands; you will arrive at the prominent headland of Start Point. Clearly visible from many a mile to seaward; thanks… Read more

  • Growing flowers to relax

    29th August 2021 by

    Letting nature back in Most of us have gardens, balconies, paths and driveways; which can be filled too easily with concrete or paving slabs that are not natural and relaxing to the eye. Gathering a few flower pots and filling them with colourful flowers can brighten up seemingly drab and boring places in our homes.… Read more
