Activities That Can Help Reduce Your Stress

Nobody wants to live with stress as a constant shadow. Stress can be caused by numerous events, most of which are out of people’s control. It could arise as a result of a drastic change in the social environment. The good news is that there are certain activities which can help alleviate an individual’s stress level. One such activity is exercise, as it improves blood flow and oxygen. Secondly, spending time with loved ones can make a huge difference in someone’s mood. Last but not least, everyone needs to participate in a few activities that are fun and exciting, such as games and exercise. Figure out which of the following activities work best for you to reduce stress.


Exercise helps reduce stress due to the effect it has on the brain. Working out can take your mind off stress, as well as improve blood flow and oxygen levels. It releases endorphins or ‘feel good’ neurotransmitters. In addition to alleviating stress, working out has a positive impact on your overall physical health. Some of the other pros that come from exercise are a boost of energy, blood circulation, and controlled weight. Regular exercise can even help maintain a constant sleep schedule. Given the long listen of benefits, exercise is highly important in one’s day-to-day life. It both reduces stress and helps you maintain a healthy life.

Loved ones

Strong relationships with loved ones can help people get through stressful situations. Sometimes, all that is needed is a hug and talking out a rough time with a friend or family member. Getting your thoughts off your chest is always beneficial in these types of situations. Moreover, relationships with family and friends will influence people to make the life choices that they do. A supportive friend, for instance, will tell you when you are about to make a bad life decision, even if you don’t realize it. Your loved ones want the best for you. Thus, they will encourage you to live your best life; a life that is devoid of stress.


Participating in fun activities, such as games, will further help reduce stress. The Escape Room Indy is an example of one such game. It is an Escape Room game where participants can solve mysteries in different rooms, each with its own unique storyline. It’s a fun activity that helps people take their minds off any stress and focus on solving the puzzle at hand.

Letting stress go unattended can have consequences on your health. As nobody wants to live in negativity or sadness, it’s important to help alleviate those moments when they come along. This can be done through some of the points mentioned previously, such as exercising, spending time with loved ones and participating in various different types of games. These are the activities that can drastically improve someone’s mood, and even if they don't make stress disappear, they will help the situation. Even the smallest amount of time spent on your wellbeing and doing activities you love can have an effect on your mental health.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
