At VOESH, our daily mission is to help people relax and feel good with everyday spa products designed with your well-being in mind.
In Honor of National Stress Awareness Day, here are 10 simple ways to alleviate stress.
1. PAMPER YOURSELF
2. TAKE A BREAK
Work can take a toll on us every day, but it is important to move around and stretch, fuel your body with nutritious foods, and give your brain or body a break.
3. FIND AN OUTLET
No, not an electrical outlet. Whether you like to paint or go for a jog, engaging in your favorites activities can help reduce stress. Talking to friends or family members can also help to manage stress levels and improve your mood.
4. DON’T OVERDO IT
Try not to take on too many responsibilities at once. Allow enough time in your schedule to relax and unwind. Learn to say “no” more often.
Take a yoga class or go for a walk outside. Take in pretty views around you and forget about adulting for a few moments.
6. JUST BREATHE
Certain deep breathing techniques can calm your mind and body at the same time. Inhale the good, exhale the bad.
Let the good times roll. Your body takes in more oxygen when you laugh and reduces stress hormones and physical tension. No joke!
8. LIGHT A CANDLE
Burning a candle can soothe the senses, especially a calming scent like lavender.
9. GET ENOUGH SLEEP
After a long day, our mind and body both need sleep to recuperate. Catch those Zz’s.
10. CRANK THE TUNES
Jam out in your living room. Listening to your favorite songs can have a relaxing or uplifting effect on you.
Remember, learning to cope with stress in healthy ways can lead to a happier, more positive you. Don’t forget to take care of yourself and your needs before anything else.
