How to relieve stress

Postby reliever » Wed, 23 Mar 2005 3:42 pm

Here's some tips:

Aromatherapy Travel Kits

Create a handy aromatherapy kit for home, office and on-the-go. You'll need a small pouch that fits the five essential oil vials:

* Eucalyptus - cool and energizing decongestant
* Ylang Ylang - uplifting and balancing, soothes mental fatigue
* Lavender - relaxing, relieves tension and aids sleep
* Peppermint - stimulating and reviving, aids digestion
* Sandalwood - warm and exotic, calming

Home Stress Survival Kit

It's nice to have supplies at home for pre- and post-work relaxation. Pamper yourself through the weekend. Don't let the spa ends on Friday.

* Aromatherapy Travel Kit (above)
* Espsom salts, candles, incense
* Pumice stone and loofah scrub brushes
* Natural moisturising cream

Desk Stress Survival Kits

Keep this kit handy for refrreshment and rejuvenation. You'll need:

* A teapot and some teacups
* A selection of teas - peppermint, chamomile, ginger, ginseng, and green tea
* Sparkling water and fresh fruits
* Miso soup and other natural soup packets
* Trail mix and power bars
* 2 small plastic bottles, one for aromatherapy spray and the other for massage oil
* A golf ball or rolling pin for feet
* Your favourite plants and flowers

ENJOY! :)

It seems to me that needing to remember to have handy, buy and maintain all this stuff seems to add stress more then anything else.

It is more likely that taking the time out to sit quietly and relax that is taken along with these utensils is probably the main stress reliever.

But what would I know as I am currently stressed through the roof with work right now meaning that my stress relief is downing a bottle of JD, acting like a monkey and sleeping it of on the weekend...

There's so many ways to "destress" or release your stress:

1 take a nap
2 listen to some soothing music
3 take a short walk by the beach or parks
4 watch TV
5 hangout with friends/make new friends
6 exercise; running, swimming etc.
7 do some shopping/window shopping
8 surf the net
9 chat online
10 read books or magazines
11 take a break - travel around the world :wink:

I think you meant "spanking", not "acting". Hope this helps 8)
