5 Tips for Stress Relief
It seems like a simple thing, but taking a deep breath can be profound in a stressful situation. It allows for a pause while a surge of oxygen rushes through the body.
Working up a sweat foes more than drop calories. Regular exercise makes us feel more empowered and positive about life.
Balancing strength with flexibility is important for a healthy body. Whether it is active stretching after a workout, in a yoga class, or passive stretching received during a massage, stretching allows the muscles and joints a more balanced range of motion.
Having regular “quiet time” allows for much needed relaxation. Meditation involves clearing the mind of stressful or negative thoughts to allow room for serenity to bloom.
Essential oils are a powerful tool for stress relief. Lavender is well know for its relaxation properties. Applying lavender to your pulse points or diffusing it into your car can provide immediate stress relief. Peppermint can help you stay calmly alert and focused, which is great for work.
