Stress management is something we all can do better. While certainly getting a massage weekly – or if you are really lucky a few times a week – will help, it’s what you do away from my office that counts the most. If you have difficulty managing stress in general, the effects from a massage might not last as long if you revert to being a stress-bot once  back  in the real world.

So take a look at your life, see what sort of stress-reducing techniques might fit and give them a try! The following is a list of ideas as to how to reduce stress:

  • Meditate
  • Get more sleep
  • Eat healthy
  • Give yourself quiet time
  • Use essential oils – on your person, at home or at work
  • Yoga
  • Walking
  • Biking
  • Socializing
  • Gardening – my favorite!

I will leave you with a picture from one of my garden plots where I go to de-stress. These strawberries are all volunteers from last year that I transplanted to one end of my plot. They are so awesome!
