Stress can creep up on you, especially after a breakup. Outside of the usual take a bath and eat some ice-cream like you see in every rom-com ever, we thought we would recommend some de-stressers you may not have heard of.
Get Outside: There’s nothing better than a little fresh air and vitamin D can help you relax.
Do some yoga: Don’t have access to a class? Do Yoga With Me is a great website that offers free yoga videos.
Sweat it Out: Kick-boxing come to mind. We love to punch it out. A nice long run, really anything to get your heart rate up and release some endorphins.
Eat More Fish (like Salmon or mackerel – something with omega-3 fatty acids): Research shows that more omega-3 causes people to produce less strew hormone cortisol and more DHEA (a stress-relieving hormone)
Listen to Music: Especially classical music, which slows heart rate, lowers blood pressure and decreases stress hormones
Hang out with some friends you know will make you laugh: “Laughter is the best medicine” is based in more than just cliche.
Have a spa day (or give yourself a manicure): It’s always nice to treat yourself. You will feel hot!
