Today I thought I'd simply compose a list of healthy and green ways to get your blood pressure down, and help you relax.
2. Going for a walk. Right now in Colorado the air is getting brisk. This is certainly earlier then Virginia, but these cool brisk walks really refresh me. I grab the dog and I go. Sometimes it's hard to get out the door, but five minutes into it, I'm always glad I went.
3. Lunch with the girls. Generally speaking, women need a support system. We need our girls to listen to our worries and help carry our burdens. We feel strengthened by our bonds with our girls, and personally I always feel a burden lifted when I've spent time with my girlfriends. I haven't always felt this way, but with time and wisdom, I've learned what kind of people to surround myself with. Introverted women may find this more relaxing with their one girl friend. The key here is to know yourself.
4. Hydrotherapy. It's a big word, for an awesome bubble bath. Warm water relaxes your muscles, and will definitely help bring the BP down. Pair this with some music of your choice, and maybe some aromatherapy, and you will definitely relax.
5. Sunshine. It's free, and it helps raise your serotonin levels, (the happy hormone). This will help if your stressed or feeling blue.
What do you do to reduce your stress?
