Beauty Tip: Stress Busters for Those Short on Time
In our busy lives, it can seem like we don’t have time to get everything done, especially during the holidays. And taking time to relieve the stress can be very important to your health as well as the way you look. Luckily, there are some simple things you can do in just a few minutes that can make all the difference in your day. If you find yourself running around in circles, take a few moments to stop and try these stress busting activities.
Stop to complete a routine activity that doesn’t take much thought.
Mowing the lawn, working in the garden, or just taking a quick walk around the block can help stop the gears in your head from spinning out of control. Use the time to try to relax your thought process. The key is to choose activities that are repetitive and routine, letting your body and mind relax into a familiar and easy activity.
Do something out of the ordinary.
If you find that you are overwhelmed with daily life, it may be time to step out of your day-to-day routine. Schedule a massage for your lunch hour, get a facial, or stop to visit a friend. It may seem like you don’t have time for such activities, but taking the time to do something different can work wonders for your mental state.
Take some time to get organized.
It is easy to put off cleaning out your makeup drawer or organizing your closets. But the longer you let these tasks go, the more overwhelming they become. There is also a psychological boost once you are done, making you feel more in control and helping to add calm and order to your daily routine.
