Rent the funniest movie you can find, and share it with your loved one. It is true – laughter really is the best medicine!
Sleep Tip: Invest in a new pillow. Pillows are cheap but can have a HUGE impact on how well you sleep. Try several to find a perfect fit.
If you’re grumpy, your relationship suffers. Try to make just half your diet “real food” – veggies, fruits, whole grains. It helps!
Sleep Tip: Keep a journal by your bed. Write out your thoughts, worries, dreams. It will help release them so you can get to sleep.
Find something active to do with your loved ones. Go for walks. Do nature photography. Rent a canoe. Learn to fence. Play together!
Sleep tip: Eyes are VERY sensitive to light. 1 hour before bed start dimming lights. Get double window shades and a sleep mask.
Have a long ride ahead of you? Load an interesting audio book onto your iPod. Enjoy a romantic story, or learn stress-relief ideas!
Feeling low? Music is shown in studies to affect hormones and stress levels. Make a soothing playlist. Close your eyes. Listen.
Sleep Tip: Take a long, hot shower or bath. The running water soothes your senses. After, your body cools, which helps you sleep.
Stress Release Tip: For one minute, take in long, deep breaths. When we get stressed we breathe shallowly. The deep breaths relax you.
