5 pro-level party habits
Developing healthy habits is a surefire way to not only level up your partying, but your life as a whole. Habitual behaviour is the backbone of our way of being; this can, of course, have both positive and negative consequences.
As anyone who’s out there raving on a regular basis will attest, it can lead to some negative spirals and have an impact on your mental and physical wellbeing.
It takes 21 days to build a new habit, once there though the neural pathways you develop are strengthened by the repetition of these behaviours. Bear that in mind when considering the following tip and always start small.
PREPARATION IS KEY
What you do in the lead up to a rave is critical. Set yourself up for optimum party vibes by adopting a positive mindset, and be mindful of your physical wellbeing. Even just getting a good amount of sleep in the few days beforehand can make the world of difference.
Developing your self-awareness is an undervalued aspect of the party lifestyle. It’s about knowing when to call it a night or when you need to chill, listening to your body and mind. Take regular mental breaks to stop to ask yourself, “How do I feel right now?”. In doing so you can attain a level of self-understanding that leads to an acute focus on self-care.
CHECK IN WITH YOUR MATES
You know who they are, the peeps who will be there for you no matter what. The ones you can confide in when you’re feeling paranoid, the ones who’ll pull you out of the afters when it’s way beyond the break of dawn. Having a trusted crew is a cornerstone of healthy raving.
It has been scientifically proven that the activation of muscles in your face that occurs when you smile will boost your mood, reduce stress levels and boost your immune system. Bring a smile with you to the rave and it benefits everybody.
What you do after the rave is also critical. Taking time to recover properly, nursing your battle weary body and mind and ensuring that you re-up all the lost nutrients will mean that the next party adventure is a success.
