Destress – Breath Deep

By Lesley Rickman

It’s no secret that modern life comes with its little stresses. Whether you have a full time job or are looking for work chances are there’s something giving you worry and taking its toll on you both physically and emotionally.

The good news is there are plenty of ways to get you back on track and back into that positive mindset that will help you tackle any issue that comes your way.

Taking a little time each day solely for yourself is a must. Whether it’s a stolen moment while the kids are still asleep or on the commute to wherever your busy life is leading you, take a deep breath and remember all you have to be thankful for.
While taking a moment is important, sometimes that ‘moment’ just isn’t enough and you need a full day or at least a few hours to pamper yourself. If it’s been too long in between relaxation sessions you might feel stuck for ideas but fear not, what you need could be as simple as a long hot bubble bath with a glass of wine or a warm blanket and a good book but if you’re really looking to spoil yourself you can always opt for a decadent spa treatment at any number of professional facilities such as Blue Pacific Hotel Swansea.

Another way to reduce stress can be as straightforward as sharing your worries or responsibilities with someone, whether it be a co-worker, friend or loved one sometimes just knowing you’re not in it alone is enough to make the world seem that little bit brighter.

So don’t be proud, no one should have to handle everything alone. Taking time for yourself and seeking help when you need it just makes good sense in the high paced, high stress society we live in. Give it a try, you’ll be glad that you did.

what do you do to de-stress yourself?
