Too much of this is not suitable for us even though a little stress can be healthy because it can keep us proactive, getting the job done. However, if you start feeling too much pressure and your body is reacting in a way that is not normal, you need to make sure you speak to your doctor. It is always better to be safe than sorry.

Listen to Some Music:

It’s something with the sounds that jolt through your body that signals to your brain, “relax.” As soon as you get home call on Alexa or hit up your soundbar and put on some calming sounds. When I get home after a long day, I get into my after “get home after work routine,” and I put on lite smooth jazz and it instantly relaxes me. The chaos at the job melts away and gives me my woosah moment.
Turn Up Your Self-Care:
Upping your self-care works wonders for the mind and body after a stressful day or stressful event with your business or your 9-5. Put into your mind that you deserve peace and serenity and decide to do something extra special for yourself. Some things you could do that makes you feel like a goddess are:
- Book a quick massage. There are tons of spa places within the vicinity of your job. With a quick Google search, you can find a great affordable place that will accommodate you.
- Take a bubbly bubble bath with all the trimmings; candles, sea salt scrub, or a book.
- Pamper your feet. Lather them puppies up with shea butter and Vaseline and make sure they are soft and supple.
- Treat your face to a detoxifying face mask. Look in that mirror and tell yourself that everything that happened earlier is over and now you are going to take care of you.
Any of the above will have you in a more blissful moment within seconds.
