11 Great Ways to Relieve Stress
An article on inproving the quality of life by relieving stress.
In our lives today, we often find ourselves so busy taking care of the home, the children, our businesses, our social life, our children's social life, our bills and just life in general that we often forget to take care of ourselves.
With us wearing so many hats in life, we often find ourselves stressed and worn out. But there are remedies for this. For me personally, I find that by making myself indulge in at least one of the following during my week, I am much happier and a lot less stressed. I find myself enjoying this "My Time" but I also sometimes try to get my family involved so that we all can lead a more stress free life. So I would like to share 11 excellent stress eliminators that I have found to be most helpful in my day to day life.
1.) Try to live Simply
2.)Take a nice long scenic walk, perhaps the beach or the lake. (Even invite a friend)
3.)Put on your favorite music, turn it up loud and dance
4.)Light up your electric simmering (aroma) pot with a softly scented aroma. This allows your senses to relax, thus allowing you to relax. Then curl up on the sofa with a good book
5.)Sink into your tub for a long, luxurious soak at the end of the day. Light a nicely scented candles, turn off the lights and let the glow and scent of the candle relax your mind, body and soul.
6.)Splurge just a little and go in for a professional massage at your local day spa
7.)Go have a manicure and pedicure done. (And I truly suggest the Spa Pedicure – ohh la la!)
8.) How about your favorite movie? You know the one that just made you laugh and smile.
9.) Another great idea is your local Coffee Stop. Especially if it has a book store. Grab a cup of coffee or cappuccino and a magazine and just relax
10.) Got a best or very dear friend you haven’t talked to in awhile? Pick up the phone and call her and reconnect.
