Could your adolescent self ever imagine being this stressed out as an adult?

Sure, as teenagers, we were busying ourselves with homework, studying and the occasional crush (Will they ask me out to prom?), but as adults, we have far bigger problems that loom over our heads on a daily basis.

Can I make rent at the end of the month?

When will I finally pay my parking fines?

Will that hot person from work finally ask me out? (Love is an evergreen issue, unfortunately)

So, once we get home from a rough day at work, the last thing we want to do is continue to feel stressed.

That’s why we’re here to tell you that it’s okay to relax and we’ve got a list that will teach you exactly how to do that…

Work out with Netflix

MANIFESTO - NET-FLEX AND CHILL: Nike Training Club on Netflix

Lifting weights at the gym around other sweaty and smelly people who may or may not invade your personal space isn’t actually my idea of a relaxing time.

Instead, try working out at home with the help of professionals using Netflix’s series which is in collaboration with Nike.

From high-intensity workouts that can last up to 30 minutes to a more grounded session of yoga or vinyasa, the series has plenty of options for you to choose from.

Sweat out that stress and check out the series here.

Listen (and dance) to music

Music has the ability to hone in on our emotions or take us out of it.

Sometimes, when we’re feeling sad or angry, we’ll listen to songs that perfectly encapsulate that, but other times, when we don’t want to dwell on those negative emotions, we listen to more upbeat music.

For the optimal immersive experience, we recommend getting a Bluetooth speaker or even (if you’re old skool) a vinyl record player, so you can listen to R.E.M’s ‘Everybody Hurts’ anywhere and anytime you want.

If you can’t choose between the two, why not buy a speaker that looks like a record player?

Crack open a cold one with the gang

Hey, we’re all adults here, right? And we know that there’s nothing better than cracking open a cold one after a long day at work.

Since the weather has been relentlessly hot these past few days, wouldn’t it be nice to open your fridge and grab a refreshing, slightly sweet, aromatic and less bitter SKOL beer to quench that thirst?

We recommend SKOL which is a lager beer brewed with the highest quality ingredients that use European brewing techniques to give you a smooth, refreshing and easy to drink experience.

SKOL has revamped their design to a fresh new look in bold shades of red & yellow and also features a new icon: An eagle that symbolises freedom and confidence. Regardless, it still maintains the same great taste that SKOL is known for – making it the perfect way to unwind and unplug after a busy day.

Better yet, SKOL beer brings people together – especially since it’s affordable. So, you can invite some of your closest friends over to talk smack about adulthood while sipping a refreshing beverage.

Overall, the brand essence is captured in their tagline, “New Look, Same Great Taste. You’ve earned it.”

It’s time for you to take care of yourself!
