Relaxing Stress Busters

Do you get stressed-out around the holidays? THM has taken this opportunity to add a little flavor to your holiday by inviting you to check out these 25 relaxing stress busters, which will help you relax and actually enjoy the holidays! I am sure something is there for everyone, come with us and see:

  1. Singing in the shower- whether it sounds good or horrible, loud, soft or silly, it works! You’ll feel light and renewed afterwards.
  2. Turn off the lights and sit quietly in a room or lie on your bed and just enjoy the fragrance of your favorite candle or scented plug-in. This facilitates deep breathing and aroma therapy.
  3. Take a long bathe or soak with dermatologist recommended bath oils and sugars. Let the warm water take the winter cold and stress away.
  4. Listen to music you like, for example, classical, jazz and soul are calming and graceful.
  5. Get a full body massage or foot rub from your spouse or a specialist.
  6. Read a novel written by your favorite author or that book your friends have been buzzing about.
  7. Watch a good movie.
  8. Perform cool down exercises or yoga.
  9. Have a night out for dinner with someone special.
