5 refreshing holiday ideas to help your mind stay active

The good thing about holidays is that you get to have time for yourself – enough to reflect on and take good care of yourself with little worries. To help you with this thought, I have put together some refreshing holiday ideas to help your mind stay active.


Yes, I know. Fitness can be strenuous, but it goes a long way in relieving you of stress. According to Help Guide,

Regular exercise can have a profoundly positive impact on depression, anxiety, and ADHD. It also relieves stress, improves memory, helps you sleep better, and boosts your overall mood.

Apart from a beneficial weight loss routines, exercises are helpful in keeping you mentally sound.


Just as we acquire new things, it is also better to let go of the things we no longer need. It is like removing weed from the real plants we want – the plants begin to get more air and the attention it needs.

There is nothing like a clean space. The mind has other things to worry about after all the work is done. Decluttering feels more psychological when you think of it that way.

Netflix and popcorn time

Popcorns and movies are two best friends that fight so much for your attention during movie time – when you stop looking at one, you are trying to get the other. Movies have always been a way to relax and work with your mind. I think that’s why we sleep off when a movie seems boring.

To avoid sleeping off on a movie this weekend, get the best movies from Phateemah’s list of movies, and thank me later. Get popcorns and drinks as well.

In-house grills

Try something fun or tasking – either way, you will enjoy it. Grills are always very delicious. I usually eat everything I want from the grill, and when it’s served, I face the drinks…lol.

Make sure you have fun with your family while doing this. You can have music playing in the background and have some friends over. I don’t recommend doing this alone.

Music, dance, games, and karaoke

Good times and crazy friends make the best memories

Sometimes, a good time is all you need. You have every other day to have bad days, but holidays should be for refreshments and laughs.

Finally, do take good care of yourself. As much as you eat, stay healthy and nourished. Keep your mind free when it feels too heavy.

Happy Holidays!
