Twasme can help you and your family take the stress out of anything, from ticking-off your day-to-day tasks to planning once-in-a-lifetime events. But being organised doesn’t mean you still don’t need a break and it’s important to make a little ‘me time’ to help manage our stress levels.
Check out our ‘Top 5 Stress Relief Tips’ covering some of our favourite ways to relax and recharge after a busy day of productivity.
Top 5 Stress Relief Tips
While not directly removing stressors from your life, exercise has been shown to reduce the levels of the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline. So, a good gym workout or even a brisk walk will help calm your nerves and tackle whatever you need to with a clear mind.
Connect with Friends
We call our friends and family our support network for a reason. Even if it is for a quick catch up over a cup of coffee, being around those who care about you is a great way to feel calm and reassured, as well as to have a really good laugh. It’s also very reassuring to know that you have people close by should you ever need them.
It’s not as complicated as you might think. In fact, you can start by just focussing on your breathing. Short, shallow and quick breathing is a reaction to your body tensing up under stress. By closing your eyes and focussing long, deep and controlled breaths you will soon find your muscles relaxing and heart rate coming back down.
Treat Yourself to a Massage
Ok, this one maybe isn’t for every day, however, getting someone to massage away our stress is high on the list for favourite relaxation techniques. Stress can affect the body just as much as the mind. A good massage improves circulation, delivering more oxygen and nutrients to muscles while removing toxins and helping to reduce tension. It also releases a lot of the ‘happy hormones’ dopamine and serotonin.
