If your holiday in Malta is designed to be a break from the endless rush of daily life, then you have come to the right place. This tiny beautiful Mediterranean island is the ideal location for rest and relaxation, so you can return home refreshed and ready to go. Here’s some ways you can unwind here in Malta.

Get Outdoors

Nothing blows the cobwebs away like taking a walk in Malta’s peaceful countryside or along one of the island’s many exquisite seafronts. The fresh air and beautiful views will help ebb the stress away, whilst the light exercise rejuvenates you.

Move your Body

Speaking of exercise, research studies have repeatedly proven it to be one of the best ways to de-stress available. Try joining a Zumba class, for example, or visit the well-equipped on-site gym for a workout to clear your mind and energise your body.

Escape to the Movies

Going to see a film at one of Malta’s many cinemas may be the perfect escape from the hubbub. Indulging in a few hours by yourself at a movie can be a therapeutic and calming experience in which you are free of distractions and can focus entirely on the story. It may be better to choose an uplifting or funny film rather than an action movie or thriller on this occasion, as a good laugh can help melt the stress as well.

Time For a Coffee

When it comes to cafés, Malta has an incredible selection to choose from. Whether you prefer a shabby chic tearoom with chintz teacups, or a modern coffee lounge serving artisanal beverages, there’s a café to suit your taste on the island. Just sit back and relax, sip your coffee, and read a chapter of your favourite book, or simply watch the world go by, in restful, unhurried, bliss.

Have a Spa Day (or longer)

One of the most popular ways to unwind has always been to indulge in some pampering at a spa. Here also, Malta has everything you need, with the Marion Mizzi Wellbeing Spa at the Radisson Blu Resort in St Julian’s. With a relaxing ‘Stress-a-way’ massage or indulgent beauty treatment, all you have to do is relax and feel the tension drift away.

Stretch and Meditate

Yoga has been shown to reduce stress, lower blood pressure and lower your heart rate, so why not sign up for a yoga class ? The gentle practice of stretching out tired limbs whilst quieting your mind and focusing on your breathing will help you to relax, no matter if you are a seasoned Yogi or a total beginner.
