A Healthy Mind and Body
 
 

Stress is a dangerous thing – it dramatically increases your risk for heart conditions and stroke, weight gain and diabetes.  Being under continuous stress can wreak havoc on your body and mind, but with today’s busy lifestyle, stress seems to be the norm.  Eco-friendly stress relief comes to the rescue with products that actually work to reduce your stress and leave you feeling calm and collected.

Scented Soy Candles

Sneak away to a calm space for a little while – even fifteen minutes will go a long way toward busting your stress – and light a few scented soy candles.  In a quiet area, the flickering flames can soothe you while the scents take you to another place. Green House Soy Company features tea lights, votive candles and candle tins in a variety of calming and soothing scents – such as Mexican Vanilla, Rosemary Lavender, Sandalwood and Island Coast.

Treat Yourself

If you purchase size B, you get a relaxing spa music CD.

Get a Companion

By companion, we’re talking furry, four legs and non-English speaking.  That’s right – a cat or dog can reduce your stress.  In fact, research shows that owning a pet can lower your blood pressure, which reduces your risk for heart attack or stroke.  Pets also encourage you to exercise more!  In a recent study measuring stress reactivity of pet owners and non-pet owners, findings show that pet owners have reduced stress, lower blood pressure and a lower baseline heart rate than non-pet owners. 

One of the greatest things about adopting a pet is that you can save a life!  Your local animal shelter will provide spay/neutering and first shots for a reasonable fee.  In return, you receive unconditional love.

These may not seem like massive steps to take in order to lower your stress, but small steps add up to leaps.  Reduce your stress and make a vow to enjoy your life more with the tips above.
