Spend quality time
A Zoom call with your friends, a cuddle on the sofa with your dog, or a walk in the park with your mum – sometimes spending quality time with our loved ones can be all we need to help us feel less stressed.
Laughing and chatting help to release endorphins – the body’s natural feel-good chemicals – which make us feel better. Being part of a close network of friends and family can also give you a sense of belonging and self-worth, which can really help on those tougher days.
So, grab a cup of tea with your best mate and enjoy a good dose of serotonin.
Move your body
One of the most effective natural remedies for dealing with stress is exercise.
Whether you escape the house for a 10km run, find a quiet room for half an hour of yoga, or join an online HIIT class, getting your body moving and your heart pumping is a great way to burn off anxious energy. Our Therapy Rooms also offer yoga and Pilates classes – a change of scene might be just what you need to bring down your stress levels and promote feelings of wellbeing.
Afterwards, you can treat yourself to an extra-long soak in the shower using our Aromatic Shower Gel to cleanse and condition your skin. The relaxing lavender and comforting geranium scents will help you to gently unwind after a good workout.
If baths are more your thing, our Seaweed and Arnica Foaming Bath is also great for aiding muscle recovery.
