Keys to a Relaxing Widow's Weekend

When your significant other is a hunter, it is common for them to spend a weekend away with their friends during hunting opener. While they are gone, make sure you make the most of your time alone by following our tips to a relaxing weekend!

Curl up on your couch

Your living room is normally a place for watching television and sometimes even your dinner table. With your counterpart gone, take some time to relax on the couch. Pick a show that you never get to watch, read a book, or take a nap. The choice is yours!

Surround yourself with calming colors

Warm colors are often associated with stimulation. Step out of your red kitchen and move into a room with cooler colors.

Blue is the color of both the sky and the ocean and has proven to be a calming hue. Green is also said to lessen depression and is both a soothing and refreshing color. It reminds people of a walk through the park or other calm activities. Click here to read more about color associations.

Light a scented candle

Along with color, scent also plays a key role in relaxation. Scents like chamomile, lavender, and vanilla, are among those said to play a role in relaxation. There are many other smells that can also help you relax. Scents are now used as a remedy for sleep and stress reduction.
