Today is National Stress Awareness day. When I was thinking of things that relieve stress the first thing that came to mind was getting a massage. It releases all of the built up physical tension in your muscles while giving you time to mentally decompress. If you’re religious or spiritual, you may share the sentiment in the photo. My friend Jessica said that when she gets stressed she works out, which is another great way to handle stress. Exercise releases feel good chemicals called endorphins. These endorphins are natural stress fighters. The hardest part sometimes is convincing yourself to get off the couch or stop the countless activities that may preoccupy you to actually exercise. But it’s definitely worth the effort if you want to relieve your stress. Share what you do to relieve stress. If you’re a Jacksonville, FL resident you may win a gift certificate for a massage at Massage by Bobbilee.
A randomly selected comment will be selected for the gift certificate by April 30, 2014. If the randomly selected comment did not originate with a resident of Jacksonville, FL, subsequent random comments will be chosen until a local is awarded the certificate.
