If you’re suffering as a result of constant anxiety, you’re far from alone. Studies show that 77% of Americans have stress levels that impact their physical well-being and daily life.
Luckily, stress relief is much easier than it sounds. Read on to learn some relaxing activities for adults that will leave you feeling refreshed and replenished.
- Take a Warm Bath
Warm baths are proven to reduce muscle tension and open up oxygen pathways to the brain. Because so much of stress is physical, this can help to make your body relax (and therefore make your mind relax, too). An all-natural bath bomb can also provide you with a pleasant smell and some much-needed aromatherapy, all from the comfort of your home.
- Listen to Favorite Music
Music has a pretty sound scientific link to reducing stress. It lowers heart rate, releases endorphins and other feel-good hormones, and even can help you to fall asleep at night. Put in your headphones or grab a speaker, crank some tunes that you know you love, and lose yourself in the music for a little while.
- Read a Good Book
Books aren’t just a lot of fun to read, but they also give you the chance to explore new worlds through the eyes of different characters. This lets you relax and unwind via escapism while experiencing an awesome story. You can rest your body and have fun with a book, which lets you leave your stressful life (even if it’s just for a few hours).
- Brew Some Hot Tea
There are so many types of tea that there’s something for nearly everyone. Whether you like floral undertones or spicy flavors, caffeinated or decaffeinated blends, or fruity beauty, tea can give you a wide array of health benefits. In addition to relaxing muscles and decreasing stress, some blends also can boost overall long-term health in the brain, heart, and lungs.
- Call Someone Close to You
Since humans are social beings, we crave connection with those we care about. Calling or video-chatting with someone close to you is a great way to relax and relieve some pent-up anxiety. Supportive friends and family can help us to feel less alone and get our heads back to a better reality.
- Treat Yourself to a Spa Day
If you’re willing to spend a little cash treating yourself, a spa day is one of the best ways to decrease your stress and get back in the game. Facials at Dream Spa Medical are an awesome way to take care of your skin while taking care of your mind. You’ll get some tactile while relaxing your muscles.
