We can’t emphasize this enough: the holidays are stressful. If there’s any time of year when you need to cut down on the daily pressures and stresses of life, it’s now. Fortunately, there’s plenty of good information abour stress management out there to help.
All-around life advice blog Life Hack posted an article today sharing 3 simple ways to reduce stress. The best part? It only takes 15 minutes to give one of these ideas a try. Like we discussed this morning, you don’t have time not to make time for de-stressing.
For example, the article suggests taking a short, hot bath:
The other day I was listening to the John Tesh Radio Show and I heard about a study that showed that 15 minutes a day of submersion in hot water reduced anxiety more than anti-anxiety medication.
Did I hear that correctly?
Yes, it’s true, a hot bath or some time in a hot tub can greatly reduce anxiety with virtually no negative side effects.
I have a hot tub and my husband and I do use it regularly, but after hearing about this study, I’ve been more likely to use it when I’m feeling stressed.
