5 Ways to Relax This Memorial Day Weekend
It’s hard to believe that Memorial Day is nearly here. It seems like only yesterday we were celebrating Valentine’s Day! Memorial Day is the perfect weekend to spend barbecuing with friends and family while remembering those men and women who gave their lives serving our country. For many, having a long holiday weekend is also an ideal time to catch up on some much-needed rest and relaxation. If you don’t plan on attending the 100th Annual Memorial Day Parade in Staten Island and would prefer, instead, to skip the crowds and relax, the Remedi Spa team has some wonderful ideas for you.
How to Relax for Memorial Day
Head to the Beach
While there will likely be thousands of people swarming the many beaches here in Staten Island this Memorial Day, relaxing at the beach is a great way to spend the day or the entire weekend. Pack a comfy blanket to sprawl out on, a yummy lunch, and some tunes and head to your favorite local beach to soak up some rays and listen to the waves crash along the shore. Just don’t forget to pack the sunscreen!
Immerse Yourself in Nature
Studies show that nature is soothing for the body, mind, and spirit. Hiking, walking, or just simply sitting in nature offers many health benefits, including stress relief and depression relief. This holiday weekend is the perfect time to escape the hustle and bustle of the city by visiting one of the nearby protected parklands. Head to Mount Loretto to go bird watching, take to the Greenbelt for a hike, or stroll through Blue Heron Park ending your hike with a lunch at the picnic area.
Read a Book
Sometimes, simply curling up with a good book on the couch or on a lounge chair outside is all you need to relax and ease stress. This is also a great way to take a break from all those noisy and distracting digital devices. Spend an afternoon reading that book you’ve wanted to start and if the weather’s nice, read outdoors to get some rejuvenating vitamin D from the sun.
Go On a Bike Ride
After being cooped up all winter and spring, you are probably ready to get outdoors to enjoy the warmth of the sunshine, breathe in the fresh air, and see all the vibrant plant life coming back to life. Going on a bike ride is a great way to do all of these things while getting some exercise along the way.
