The thing that we come to realise when in university is that stress is not just a problem during the 3 weeks leading up to the examination period, it occurs unexpectedly and in very random ways: being clueless about an allocated assignment, failing to snag a seat at the popular Robbo library or when stores run out of your clothing size during a sale period. One way or another, we need an avenue to release steam and angst before we all combust internally. Whilst a good night out or a share-size bar of chocolate are always good shouts, why not try these guilt-free stress busters next time the dreaded brain-fuzz ascends.
It looks like a spider or an egg-beater with detached ends. This product relieves stress through an initial ticklish sensation when you feel your pressure points being pressed, then the subsequent relief of enjoying that soothing head massage. Stress will not be as heavy as before. As well as relaxing your tired mind, it enhances blood circulation in the head to reach your hair follicles, allowing you to grow a fuller head of thick luscious hair. So, it does not matter if you are on the brink of failing everything, at least your appearance is not as bad as your results, right?
One of the most affordable go-to stress relievers! Whatever facial concerns you may have, there will definitely be at least one to fit your requirements. A gentle reminder: Do not waste the excess serum in the face mask packet, apply it around your neck for maximum results. If you are not a fan of commercialised face masks, make your own face mask by mixing oats, banana and honey into a thick paste. From there, explore other ingredients to create your own facial magic. The best part is that it will cost you next to nothing!
Do not underestimate the wonders of your favourite scented body wash! Perhaps it is the unhurried feeling of feeling pampered that loosens the knots of tension internally. When you emerge from the bathroom smelling fresh, your senses feel rejuvenated, allowing you to focus better. So, start with your favourite scented body wash or shampoo today, we all need to take a bath anyway. For extra stress relief follow with your favourite moisturiser and why not try an in shower exfoliator or fake-tan.
Your room is your sanctuary; hence it should smell heavenly. Invest in a good fragrance plug! It has been proven that our olfactory response is directly linked to the emotional aspect of our brain, so smells affect our moods. The advantages of using a fragrance plug is the massive collection of scents to choose from and the average time to finish one bottle of scent is more than 3 months. Just when you start to get bored, it’s time to change scent. My recommendation would be Bath and Body Works Wallflower Fragrance Plug, you will never look back.
Often a fond favourite of the senior citizens in our community, but if you are wearing it in the privacy of your own room, no need to worry about the judgemental stares of others. The jutting holes in the footbed stimulates the pressure points in your foot to eliminate bad moods. It also eases the stress, depressive and neurotic states as it strengthens the nervous system. If it is difficult to find such sandals or a rough rock surface to walk on, massage the sole of your feet using two or three lemons.
