Sanctuary: Where Can You Go to Relax?


One of the best ways people can relax and forget their troubles is to go on vacation. Unfortunately, we can’t always just pick up and head for the beach. It’s important to have practical, everyday methods for relieving our pent-up stress and anxiety.

While it may seem easier to simply reach for a cigarette or a high-fat snack when we’re stressed, in the long-run these choices usually lead to regret and even more stress. Most of us would benefit from finding simple ways to keep ourselves relaxed and to temporarily forget the things that worry us. The best way to do this is to look for healthy, safe and productive means of relieving anxiety.

Our environment can have a major impact on our state of mind. This means our well-being can actually be affected by our surroundings. By placing ourselves in a tranquil, pleasant setting, we can take some control over our anxiety.
