5 New Year’s Resolutions to Reduce your Stress
We all have stress, and you may be thinking about how the right New Year’s resolution could help to reduce yours. If you want to reduce your stress, there are several ways to do so. Gary Pools & Leisure is here to give some suggestions to melt away your stress in the New Year!
Number 1: Invest in a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub
Soaking in a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub regularly is a great way to reduce your stress levels. Soaking in a hot tub is not only enjoyable but can also help to reduce your stress. People who take a daily soak in their spa often report lower stress levels on a day to day basis. If you want to increase the effectiveness of your hot tub, you can use aromatherapy products in your hot tub. Just make sure they are spa-friendly and a scent that you genuinely enjoy! Scents such as lavender, rosemary, and citrus can help reduce your stress, and maybe, even help you to re-energize after a stressful day.
Number 2: Relax with an Indoor Game Table
When people think about indoor game tables, they often think they are only used when guests are around. However, picking out one that you enjoy means you’ll use it more often. Playing games after a stressful day can help you refocus and relax. A ping pong table is a great way to de-stress and you may even work up a sweat! If you want a game a little slower paced, you could invest in a pool table or even shuffleboard table.
Number 3: Spend More Time Outdoors
Spending time outdoors, away from the hustle and bustle of the office, is a nice way to relieve stress. People who spend more time outdoors often report feeling more satisfied with their life. You may be into hiking or jogging, but even simply sitting outside can help take your mind away from the day. To help you spend more time outdoors, some nice patio furniture may help you relax.
Number 4: Eat Healthier
Eating healthy is the most beneficial thing you can do for your body and mind! You may associate healthy food with leafy greens, quinoa, or oatmeal, but eating healthy can be fun. If you like grilled food, there’s no healthier alternative. A grill doesn’t require the extra oil that a pan does, meaning food you cook on a grill is better for you. Plus, if you spend time grilling, that means you’ll be spending more time outdoors!
Number 5: Get Some Exercise
A common New Year’s resolution is to start exercising more often. While many people make this resolution to lose weight, exercise also helps manage stress. Exercising gives you an outlet to release built-up tension in a healthy way. One of the most beneficial types of exercise is swimming. Maybe, you could get yourself motivated to exercise more often with a swimming pool of your own?
