Stress relief, one drop at a time.


It sure does have a bad reputation, doesn’t it?

Like carbon monoxide, it’s dubbed the silent killer because of how stealthily it can exert its nefarious effects.

Now don’t get me wrong, not all stress is bad.

We need stress in our lives. We need it to grow, improve, and more importantly, to thrive.

We need it as a stimulus that initiates an adaptation (for more information on the science of stress, one can follow the google trail on Dr. Hans Selye, the “grandfather” of stress, and learn more about his General Adaptation Syndrome).

But in order for stress to cause a beneficial change, it must be managed.

So without further ado, here’s one of our favourite stress management techniques that doesn’t involve chugging back half a bottle (or full bottle) of wine:

A hot bath.

Sounds simple. And it is.

Just follow the 3 easy steps listed below:

  1. Place stopper over drain and turn on faucet at desired water temperature.

  2. Let water run until desired level of water in bathtub is reached. Do not overfill.

  3. Carefully step in to stress-killing oasis and soak for requisite time being careful not to drown.

That’s it. That’s all there is to it.

Give it a try and let us know how you feel.
