Stress is one of the basic psychological pressures we often deal with. It seems that we cannot get escape it, but luckily there are some ways of fighting it.
One of them is taking a bubble bath. The best thing is that it doesn’t cost a thing – all you need is a bath, bath salts, maybe some essential oils, and some candles (but place them in a place that will not start a fire, so you won’t have to worry about that during your relaxation time). Use an inflatable bath pillow to rest your neck while you are bathing; alternatively, you can use a folded cotton towel. To make sure your body really slows down and relaxes, put on some soothing music but make sure no electrical devices like radios are close enough they could fall into the tub. Soak away your worries.
Another one is getting a massage. It is considered as one of the best remedies for a quick stress relief. You can do self-massage or self-reflexology (and it doesn’t cost you a thing), or you can have someone massage you. It can be your partner, a family member, or you can get a therapist (just make sure they are certified so that they don’t cause you more aches).
The last one I will be talking about today is a sauna. It doesn’t have to be -20°C outside to be able to enjoy one, but make sure you don’t suffer from any health issues (such as angina pectoris) where sauna would not be advised. You can choose between different types of saunas: Finnish sauna (hot and dry), Turkish sauna (very humid, but not that hot), and infrared sauna. Afterwards, you will feel relaxed and tired, so it is great to do before going to bed.
