Tips To Manage Stress

April is Stress Awareness Month, but these last two years have been quite challenging and understandably stressful. With all the balancing between work, family and house chores, it’s okay to feel stressed but it’s more important you follow the tips to manage stress.

In this blog, we will present you top tips to manage stress.

  • Physical Activity
  • Eat Well
  • Get Good Sleep
  • Book A Laundry Service
  • Make Time for Yourself

Physical Activity

A top tip to manage stress is physical activity; put on your headphones, listen to your playlist, and go out for a walk. The warmer weather calls for more time outside so make the best of it.

You can even go out for a jog or use the gym for stress relief. Exercise releases endorphins shifts your energy to positivity and improves your mood to manage stress. Set your fitness goals to keep yourself motivated.

Don’t worry about your dirty gym laundry, we’ll do the heavy lifting by doing your laundry for you!

Eat Well!

We’ve all been there. When we are having a bad day, the first thing we do when we are free is rush to the fridge and start to stress-eat. This feels good now, but it adds to the stress in the long term.

Maintaining a good diet is the key to stress management. Cut down the caffeine. Drinking Chamomile tea is highly recommended for stress relief as it helps relaxation.

We are approaching the summer so even the basics like staying hydrated help in managing stress.

Another good tip to manage stress is keeping your Vitamin D in check; eat eggs and mushrooms. Eat a healthy amount of broccoli and green beans as they are excellent for stress relief.

Healthy Eating to manage Stress

Get Good Sleep!

Getting a goodnight’s sleep is not only good for the heart but it helps us wake up in a good mood, stay productive and recharge our battery. Waking up tired makes us more stressed.

To manage stress and your sleep, we recommend sleeping at the same time daily and getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep. Turn your phone off as they are a distraction and will only keep you awake.

The key to a goodnight’s sleep could be your bedsheets and linen so make sure they’re comfortable, fresh, and cleaned!

Bedlinen, tidy sheets.

Book a Laundry Service

Laundry is a never-ending chore and if you have kids, work or a busy lifestyle, a mountain of dirty clothes can be stressful.

However, it doesn’t have to be stressful. Managing your laundry is a great stress relief and we at Laundryheap love to help.

Our services aren’t just limited to laundry; we also offer dry cleaning and ironing.

Make Time for Yourself

When you get stressed, it’s okay to take a break and make time for yourself. Don’t overwhelm yourself with daily responsibilities and chores. Reading a book, travelling to new places, shopping online and meeting friends are all proven to be great stress relievers.

Doing things we love is a great tip to manage stress and one we strongly recommend.

Manage Stress by making time for yourself

We hope your stressful days are less frequent. If you do get stressed, remember to follow the tips above to manage your stress.

  • A romantic dinner for 1

  • Treat yourself 
  • Send love to your loved ones

A romantic dinner for 1

Romantic dinners don’t have to be for couples. Take yourself out to your favourite restaurant, or one that you have been waiting to try, and enjoy your own company. Indulge in amazing food and even better company, because nobody can entertain you quite like yourself.

Cook for yourself 

If you can’t stand to be surrounded by love-heart-eyed couples at a restaurant, then cook for yourself. Try a new recipe, or a family favourite, and sit down to a delectable meal in the comfort of your own home. This way, you can fill your stomach with food and drink, and immediately collapse on the sofa afterward. The perfect end to a perfect night.

Spa night in

Who doesn’t love a self-care evening? Face mask, hair mask, manicure, bath, trashy TV, makes for a night of complete relaxation. Whilst enjoying your spa night in, check in with yourself and your emotions. Evaluate how your week has been and allow yourself to fully relax and feel your feelings. Today/tonight is all about you.

A night out with your besties 

Nothing is more fun than a night out with your besties. Whether you’re enjoying dinner, laughing over drinks, or partying the night away in a club, nothing will make you feel less alone than a night out with your best friends.

Eat LOTS of chocolate 

Heart-shaped chocolate is a popular gift for couples on Valentines Day, so treat yourself to some. Buy a box, or four, of your favourite chocolates and enjoy snacking on them throughout the day. Or, an even better option is to wait until the day after when it’s discounted. That way you get the joy of chocolate and a discount!

Treat yourself 

We all deserve to feel loved, and a great way to show our love and appreciation is with a gift. This Valentines Day, show yourself some love by treating yourself to something that you have had your eye on. Whether it’s a new pair of shoes, a bed set, or even just a nice bottle of wine, get yourself something that shows how much you care. You deserve it.

Send love to your loved ones 

Valentines Day is a day for expressing your love, so send some love to your loved ones. Send your besties a card, your mum some flowers, and your sibling a box of chocolates. Something that’s small but expresses your love for them. Not all love has to be romantic.

Babysit 

If your loved ones have little ones, and you don’t have any Valentine’s Day plans, offer to babysit. Whilst you are looking after the children, your loved ones could be enjoying some much-needed time with their significant other. Not only will you be helping out someone you love, but you can use this as a way to get a favour later on in the year.

Unplug 

Spending Valentine’s Day on your own presents the perfect opportunity to unplug. Turn off you phone, laptop, and tablet, and have a social media free evening. This will be great for your mental health and wellbeing, plus will give you time to focus on something else, like eating as much chocolate as you can.
