Christmas is often a busy time and it can be overwhelming. At The Stable, we know how important it is to find time to relax and take a break from busy schedules. We also know how hard it can be find the time, especially with constant invitations, but sometimes saying no isn’t the worst thing you can do. Here’s why.
There’s nothing wrong with being busy, however if you’re too busy and you’re not giving yourself time to relax you’re going to end up tiring yourself out. This can leave you feeling drained of energy, lacking motivation and also no longer enjoying what should be fun. Feelings like this if prolonged can potentially lead to stress and other problems.
Instead of dragging yourself out to every event, miss one or two and do something that’s just for you. It could be having an evening on the sofa, doing some gentle exercise or even just going for a quiet drink with someone. Of course, at The Stable we offer a range of facilities which will really help you unwind and rest both your body and mind, including a sauna, steam room and one of London’s largest spa pools.
By taking the time out to relax, you’re a lot less likely to burnout – you don’t want to get past Christmas and realise you haven’t got the same energy for New Year’s Eve! Although you may still be there physically, if you’re tired out you won’t be able to enjoy things in the same way. You also risk affecting your health, as being overly tired can leave you feeling run down and more prone to catching viruses – definitely something to avoid at the peak of the winter cold and flu!
However busy you think you are, don’t feel bad if you have to decline something because you need a ‘you night’. In the long run you’ll feel much better for it. If you’d like to have some time off at our male-only gay bathhouse, you can find The Stable centrally located in London.
