Relax with Roberts

We all know how important it is to take time out of our hectic lives to relax and recharge. Here are some of Roberts’ top tips for creating an oasis of calm in our day-to-day lives.

Switch off with your favourite music

Listening to soothing music can be very relaxing – the slow tempos will induce a calm state of mind. Whether you’re preparing for a big day at work, stuck in traffic or lying in bed trying to silence your mind, music therapy has been shown to be extremely helpful in relaxing, recharging and reducing anxiety. Here are some of our top chill-out jams:

  • Airstream – Electra
  • DJ Shah – Mellomaniac (Chill Out Mix)
  • Enya – Watermark
  • Coldplay – Strawberry Swing
  • Barcelona – Please Don't Go
  • All Saints – Pure Shores
  • Adele- Someone Like You

Listen to a podcast

Now more than ever, radio has become an ever-comforting part of many peoples’ lives. Whether that’s tuning into your favourite station on your way to work or catching up on a podcast you’ve been dying to hear all week, we enjoy this moment to forget everything else and enjoy the moment. 

But there’s a whole new way of practising mindfulness, and that’s through your Roberts radio. With any one of our internet radios, you can tune into some of the best relaxation podcasts the internet has to offer – without being glued to your phone. Here’s a round-up of some of our favourites.

Indulge in a hot bath

From soothing muscles to calming stress, we all know the restorative power of a good bath; but for more than just soft skin and a clear mind, a detox bath can help get health back on track. Stock up on your favourite bath salts and soaps and decorate the room with candles to create your own at-home spa. A pre-made chill-out Spotify playlist is simply perfect to pop on in the background to ensure you really unwind.

Slow Down

Balancing all of life’s demands can be stressful and time-consuming. It can often feel like there isn’t enough time to really connect with your family. Why not get out and about with them this May Bank Holiday? Our R1 and R100 radios with portable batteries are perfect for just that! All you need to decide on is the playlist.

Get a good night’s sleep

Some of the body’s most important repair and revival work happens when we sleep – from muscle repair to immune support and even vital brain activity. Try to go to sleep and wake up around the same time as often as possible, letting your body get into a steady rhythm. With any one of our Smart Internet Radios, you can access thousands of podcasts, including a range of ‘sleep easy’ recorded sounds and stories that will help rest your busy mind.
