Take a Mental Vacation: Final 2 Suggestions

The last two ways to take a mental vacation, according to Sally Connolly, a therapist at the Couples Clinic of Louisville, is listening to relaxing music and taking a walk. For music, there are many options available online through various streaming services and on record or CD. Connolly recommends looking for music that includes the sounds of rolling waves, gentle rain or chirping birds. Closing your eyes and doing some deep breathing while listening will enhance the experience. Ready to get outside? A short walk in the morning or during a lunch break is also a great way to relieve stress. When possible, walk along a trail or in a peaceful place for even more relaxing moments. Connolly's final advice: try to incorporate one of the six mental vacations she suggests every day to train your body to relax and reduce stress.
