Rest is Best

There is no end to monotony. The human mind is always on the lookout for renewal. Spend three years in a job, and only a few of us are not starting to feel nervous. But how do you manage to keep your mind and soul as fresh as ever, if the bid is the hour of patience and do not comply lose hope? Here's how to continue.

Take an aimless stroll
Exercise and walking - as most doctors will tell you - is to go always good for your health, but an aimless can make a difference to your state of mind. It gives you the space to think your own thoughts aimlessly without planning your time. But do not do this too often, or rather, not pencil in your diary. As Dr. Sandeep Vohra, Senior Consultant Psychiatrist, Apollo Hospital, says: "Monotony is because we just get bored. If you plan on hiking, you can get bored with them as well. Keep therefore the change from one activity to another."

Going out with friends
Social contacts can be a mood lifter. All it takes several rounds of conversation and laughter to awaken. If you have spent much time alone, you could bleak. When people listen and get involved to change your mood.

Yoga, exercise, wellness
Dr. Rachana Singh, lifestyle management expert, said exercise helps break monotony by positive liberating your hormones. "I would suggest that you can actively exercise three times a week, actively and passively three times a week. Deep breathing for 15 minutes a day will work wonders - it helps to solve the mind-body balance and help you relax," she says .

Dr. Nikhil Raheja, director of the National Institute of Mental Health, stresses the importance of yoga, exercise, relaxation and self-hypnosis. "It is easy to learn and can work wonders," he says. "A good massage at a spa or pedicure can also renew you," he adds.

Go shopping
Dr. Raheja says that a large shopping can be stress buster. "They do not always have to buy something big, just little things for the house can feel comfortable. Shifting things around, experimenting with colors, patterns, and a couple of changes is always refreshing," he says.

Browse pounds
Browsing in a bookstore or library, you can calm. What is more, if there is a place with a good collection, there's the added joy of discovering new songs and ideas to revive your soul again. Not in the books? Try to find a music shop, read in DVDs or wander through a hobby store.

Pamper yourself
Eat, drink, do things that you love. Discover desire and pleasure - and when you are back in the real world, you will feel refreshed.

Television, if you do not often that treat, re-read an old favorite, get a little comfort, food, or best of all, sit back and listen to music. According to Dr. Raheja, music as a stress-buster and resources for renewal.

Try some adventure
Adventure mean many things. To learn from something new or go rafting or learning a new art - it is a challenge and there are showers. Something new opens up the mind, as you stretch your limits.

Dr. Singh believes it is a good idea to indulge in a hobby. "One or three times a week is a good idea," she adds. "Listening to music, identifying their interests - this can be really positive," she says.

According to Dr. Vohra, may exercise computers or digital games for the mind. "These will help in a certain way and the people, was designed with boredom," he says. Indoor games, all to relieve anxiety and stress.

"Or go bowling, visiting amusement parks," says Dr. Raheja. "Puzzle solving, like crosswords and Sudoku are also mentally demanding."

Take advantage of a weekend
Leaving, a new beach or desert, or a resort - with family or friends or alone - can not only been a buster, but also in new, exciting experiences bring.
