2. Stress Management
Stress is something that disrupts your body and its functions. If you let stress build up and don’t give yourself a break, it can lead to negative effects on your physical and emotional health. Having a better understanding of how your body reacts to stress is a great starting point when trying to manage it. Managing stress can be achieved a number of ways:
Take 5 minutes every morning to start your day with a clear mind. Meditation gives us the mind space needed to be productive and enables us to lead a calmer life.
Yoga is like meditation in motion, bringing together mental and physical disciplines. While there are many different styles of yoga, Hatha Yoga focuses on ways you can treat yourself. It helps you to forget about your responsibilities and find balance.
Set up a day by yourself or with a friend to relax and receive a massage or facial. Studies have shown that massages can reduce stress and pain, relax muscles, improve sleep and increase endorphins. Oasis Day Spa is a great place to reset and clear your mind from any stress building up.
Unplug for the day
With technology continuing to evolve, we are becoming more and more connected. Whether it’s your smart phone, smart watch, tablet or laptop, these gadgets take over our lives. When was the last time you had an actual conversation with someone without being distracted? Take one day a week to unplug from your devices and enjoy the life around you. Engage with people, or escape reality by reading a good book.
