Note from Judi

Happy April! I thought the weather was changing but apparently we got another quick dose of winter. The pansies are popping and we have two new facials this month.

Please read the article about stress. It is national stress awareness month. Be mindful of your stress level and make time for yourself.

Look better, feel better, and live better,

Bye-Bye Stress! It’s National Stress Awareness Month!

Reduce Stress so You Can be Healthier and Happier

Stress FreeEveryone experiences stress on a daily basis. But if left unmanaged, stress can lead to health problems such as anxiety, depression, and heart attacks, among other ailments. In celebration of National Stress Awareness Month, follow these tips to reduce stress, so you can feel your best!

  1. Get healthy. Taking control of your health can impact the level of stress you experience. Improve your food choices and add an exercise routine to your day. Even 30 minutes of brisk walking each day combined with a healthier diet will make you feel so much better!
  2. Laugh! Laughter truly is therapeutic. In fact, laughter has been known to lower blood pressure, reduce stress hormones, and increase alertness and creativity. So, laugh away! It really is the best medicine!
  3. Get your Zzzz’s. We are all guilty of not getting enough sleep from time to time. But did you know poor sleep habits affect many, if not all, areas of your life? When we don’t get enough sleep, we simply aren’t running at full capacity. We’re not giving our best to our jobs, families, or even to ourselves. Turn off the television at night and head to bed. Isn’t it worth it to improve every aspect of your life?
  4. Enjoy a weekend getaway. Grab your bestie and venture out of town for the weekend for a mini vacation to recharge your batteries. Find a B&B and schedule a wine-tasting tour at a local winery, or give horseback riding a try. You’ll be relaxed and ready to take on the world!
  5. Relax with a massage! Nothing is more soothing than experiencing a much-needed massage to rid your body and mind of tension. According to the Mayo Clinic, “…the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain, and muscle tension.” Need we say more? Go ahead and reserve that stress-reducing massage!

Managing stress is all about taking charge of your daily activities and thought processes. You can reduce stress in your life by valuing yourself. It’s important to make time for fun and relaxation, so you can be in a better position to deal with life’s stressors.
