5 Mind Refreshing Activities For Architects

1.Sleep: Sometimes you are tired just because you need to sleep. At times like this, sleep for few hours and let your body relax, you will then wake up with a clear and fresh mind as you start work, this can be far more productive than staying up late and thinking when you are tired and barely have the ability to open your eyes. Nothing worthy will probably come out of this.

2.Meditate: Meditation gives you the desired peace of mind by turning all your focus and attention to one thing, your steady breath, the sounds of nature, or the relaxing visual image you have created in your mind. Meditation has too many benefits among which is boosting concentration and clarity of mind. The practice of Yoga can be helpful with meditation, as some yoga poses help with preparing the mind and body. Check out this 2-minute meditation guide from Happify, explaining the basic concept.

3. Read a book: Fan of fiction? Well, there is a huge variety of genres, just find the one that suits your taste and you can never run out of options. Reading can be mind-refreshing, informative, and a source of inspiration. Historical fiction can teach you about history, fantastic fiction can teach you to momentarily let go of reality, and contemporary fiction will make you more understanding of people and society.

4.Travel: Before you reach the point where you could break and not take it anymore, take a vacation and travel. According to the available budget and what you would enjoy most, decide on your destination. It can be inside or outside your country. Go to the beach and enjoy the sea breeze, or go on an adventure in some tropical forest. Visit somewhere completely different and experience the foreign cultures. Broaden your horizons.

5. Walk and Explore: We have previously mentioned walking as an exercise option. However, this kind of walking is different. It is more like wandering. You can choose a neighborhood or an area in your town, which you are not familiar with and start exploring it. Take its different routes, check out its architecture, and discover its hidden gems which can be a cozy bakery, an authentic restaurant, or a nice little bookshop. Knowing more about the nooks and crannies of your city or town always feels good.
