+44(0) 20 7820 4774

It’s been described as a curse of modern times.

It’s omnipresent in most of our everyday lives.

And for some, its impact is dangerous and, in the worst-case scenarios, deadly.

In the tune of the 1990 hip-hop hit – let’s talk about stress.

April is Stress Awareness Month, a perfect time to discover new relaxation and stress relief techniques.

Beyond the usual advice, let’s take a look at some pretty unique activities:

Forest bathing: Immerse yourself in nature with forest bathing, a practice proven to reduce stress hormones and boost mood. A good walk in the woods should do it.

Sound healing: Experience how Tibetan singing bowls and other instruments use vibrations to soothe the mind and relieve stress.

Ecotherapy: Connecting with the earth through activities like gardening or conservation is proven to help people find more inner peace.

Laughter yoga: Merge laughter with yoga breathing for a fun way to reduce stress and improve health.

Adult colouring: The simple act of colouring can focus the mind and provide a stress-free escape. Switch off your phone and get your colouring pencils out.

Virtual reality relaxation: Step into another world with VR. From peaceful beaches to serene forests, VR can transport you away from daily stressors, providing a unique form of relaxation.

DIY craft projects: Engaging in crafts, from knitting to DIY home décor, can be meditative and reduce anxiety. The focus required helps divert attention from stressors to the task at hand, promoting a sense of achievement and calm.
