How To Reduce Stress In Your Life

url.jpg

You’re probably thinking, that is absolutely impossible, but you would do anything to eliminate stress from your life. Stress is by far the number one factor that people deal with almost everyday. Whether it is work, school or other obligations, it widely affects our lives in the worst ways.

If you conquer stress, you are set for life. Feeling stress-free will automatically improve your mind, health, and body. Here are some tips to eliminate stress from your life:

Identify the stressors 

Take a few minutes to think about all the things that are making you stressed out. Make a list if you want. See which things you can eliminate that are making you stressed out, and things that you absolutely cannot eliminate. For the things that cannot be eliminated, strategize ways to make them less stressful. That is the first step into living a reduced stress life.

Stop unnecessary duties

Everyone has obligations in their life like work, school, running errands, etc, but are you taking on other commitments that are adding unnecessary stress to your life? Take steps to delete those activities that stress you out the most. This will already lift a weight off of your shoulder.

Procrastination 

All of us have procrastinated in our life at least once…or twice. Procrastination is one of the largest factors that cause us stress. You have a big project to do and you end up spending hours and hours trying to finish it the day before it is due. Allowing things to keep piling up does cause us a lot of stress. Find different ways to organize your responsibilities and create a top priority pile. Learning to be more organized and keeping your inbox clear will save you a lot of time to work on other things for yourself.

Being late

Being late to a very important meeting or to a class is something that stresses us out frequently. If you forget to set your alarm the night before, the feeling of having to rush to get everything ready and run out of the door is not fun at all. Learn ways to be early to places. Time yourself on how long it takes you to get ready and out the door, then set your alarm accordingly. Once you get in the habit of being early, you will more stress-free than ever before.

Get a massage! 

Did you know, massages are equivalent to getting 7-8 hours of sleep? When you don’t get enough sleep, stress piles on making your muscles extremely tense. After that one hour massage session, you will feel better already. Getting massages now and then will take the feeling of stress away and will help you feel a lot more relaxed in a short amount of time. Cope with your stress by scheduling a massage with us today!

Healing Hands for Arthritis- Massage Envy

massage-envy-hhfa.jpg

It’s that time of the year again; Massage Envy and The Arthritis Foundation are partnering up to help lead the fight for arthritis. Some of us may understand the devastating affects of living with arthritis and the pain one can encounter almost every day. For those who don’t know what arthritis is, it is the inflammation of one or more joints, causing pain and stiffness that can worsen by age. More than 50 million Americans live with arthritis and are trying to find ways to cope with their anxiety and pain to live the best life possible.

Although there is no cure yet, the key approach to care focuses on diet, exercise, natural and medical therapies. One of the greatest therapies that help people cope with arthritis are massages. Massages help them control their symptoms and feel a sense of relief.

Join us on September 28 for our 6th annual Healing Hands for Arthritis event of the year! When you schedule a 60 minute massage at your local clinic, $10 dollars is donated to the Arthritis Foundation to help find a cure for America’s leading cause of disability. This is a one day event so don’t miss out on making a difference in the arthritis community.

Learn more about our one day event on September 28 and about arthritis here.

Are You In A Funk?

Do you ever feel like time is just dragging? You may be feeling more sluggish or tired, and not worrying so much about your body and health. Sometimes life can get you down, but it is our own duties to keep our spirits high. Here are a few tips to keep you going during the rough times:

#1 GET A MASSAGE

It’s really quite simple. We promise you won’t regret your decision. A massage could be the kickstart to a new week and a new mind set.

#2 TAKE A WALK

If you have an office job, you may know this dilemma very well. The sun is almost rising on your way to work and the sun sets just as you are getting out. Fresh air is so important when we are feeling down. It could really change your entire day around by just spending 15 minutes outside.

#3 SPOIL YOURSELF

I’m sure most of us can say that we don’t spoil ourselves as much as we should. Life is short, buy those shoes you’ve been staring at for far too long.

Rough times will pass! So make sure that you keep a positive outlook and you take care of yourself every day of the year.

In honor of National Staying Healthy Month, let us tell you about total body care:

Life in general takes a toll on our bodies every single day. PTA meetings, soccer games, dentist appointments, work, school and everything in between, we are constantly on the move. Its on us to stop and hit the pause button. Taking a pause on the daily grind is an essential part of life.

Massage Envy can help. Let us help you take care of your body. Getting a massage or facial shouldn’t be a luxury. A regular massage can give your body the room it needs to stay healthy and nourished for a better life. A regular facial isn’t just maintenance for your skin. It will leave you with results that can be everlasting to your face.

The next time you need a break from this thing called life, let us be your partner in managing your body.

5 Tips to Stay Happy and Healthy Through The Holiday Season

Healthy-Holiday-Survival-Guide

 

Drink Lots of Water

The holidays are a time to celebrate, and because of that people tend to drink more alcohol. In order to stay healthy it’s important to make sure you’re drinking tons of water to stay hydrated! Get in the habit of filling up a bottle of water in the morning and making sure you finish it by the end of the day.

Wash Your Hands

The single biggest threat to your health is the germs on your hands! Whether your traveling or just doing some last minute shopping, make sure to keep some hand sanitizer with you at all times! No one wants to be sick on the holidays.

Choose Healthy Snacks

Eat what you are looking forward to the most, but make sure it’s in moderation! Don’t over indulge yourself in all the dessert. It’s important you are getting enough of the vitamins you need. You’re going to need all the extra energy!

 Stay Active

We have the tendency of putting fitness on hold around the holidays. If you are unable to make it to the gym, take 20 minutes out of your day and go for a walk or a job around the neighborhood. Do this 2 or 3 times a week and you won’t gain that access weight you are over-thinking about!

 Controlling Stress

Treating yourself to a massage or a hot bath could be the thing you need to stay relaxed. We seem to get so caught up in the holidays that we forget the important things like taking care of YOU. If you are feeling overwhelmed, take some time for yourself and enjoy alone time. You’ll thank yourself later.

Thank you for allowing us to take care of you! Stay tuned for our next blog post and make sure that every week, you are able to enjoy some ME time.

(You’re immune system accidentally attacks your own body). Other autoimmune disorders include diseases like Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Lupus, Graves Disease, and Diabetes Type 1.

Adding Tea to Your Diet: a Simple Way to Boost Your Health Today!

Did you know swapping you daily coffee for tea could be beneficial for your body!?And while there are many teas with tasty flavors including fruits and mint, these teas may not have any benefits other than their taste. Stick to green, black, oolong, or white teas. These tea types are chock full of antioxidants and phytochemicals.  Research shows that polyphenols and phytochemicals are what give tea its health benefits.

Here are a few ways that tea could improve your health:

• The antioxidants in teas have been shown to protect people from a range of cancers, including breast, colon, prostate and skin.
• Tea helps hydrate the body, despite the caffeine it contains.
• Consumption of hot tea regularly has been shown to cinch waist circumference and BMI, decrease your risk of heart attack and lower the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease.

Take tea’s health boosting powers to the next level! Brew up a cup of green tea.

• The catechins (another kind of antioxidant) in green tea extract can increase your body’s ability to burn fat, thereby increasing muscle endurance.
• Studies have shown green tea can help people with diabetes process sugar better.
• Evidence also shows that green tea can improve bone mineral density and strength.
• The polyphenols in green tea may help maintain the parts of the brain that regulate learning and memory, and as a result help prevent and treat degenerative neurological diseases.
• Green tea may even help protect you from ultraviolet rays.

Of course drinking tea isn’t the only thing you should be doing to improve your health, a healthy diet and moderate exercise are vital to good health! Try implementing a cup of tea a day to get some of the awesome benefits tea can give you! For more ways to stay healthy, check out our Pinterest at http://pinterest.com/massageenvycf/!
