If you made a resolution for the New Year to reduce your stress levels, you’re not alone. This year, stress reduction is in the top 10 New Year’s resolutions, and with good reason. However, the absolute irony in this, says stress-management expert Elizabeth Scott, M.S., is that January is one of the most stressful times of the year because people put so much pressure on themselves to make big changes. Where did it all go so wrong?
While good intentions for long-term health are fantastic—such as quitting smoking and eating healthier—it’s important not to stress yourself out. Not every day is going to be perfect. Prepare yourself, because in the first 3-8 weeks, you will face the greatest challenges to your resolve. However, one of the best ways to combat stress is by getting a massage. Massage combats many of the effects of stress, including high blood pressure, muscle and back pain and weak immunity.
Massage can also act as a substitute for unhealthy habits such as smoking or over eating when such behaviors are used as coping devices. For example, if you are trying to quit smoking and are having a particularly bad day at the office, usually a cigarette would help. When you don’t have that coping mechanism, stress can spiral. Try to hold off as much as you can and book an appointment that evening for a massage. Massage will help relax your mind and can reorient your mood as you no longer focus on that specific problem. Physiologically, the Cedar-Sinai Medical Center found the human touch reduced stress and pain in many patients as well as reduced cortisol and increased white blood cells in those undergoing therapy—a sign of the less stressed subject.
Realize, of course, that a successful New Year’s resolution begins with baby steps, so give yourself a pat on the back when you have made it through days of not smoking and eating healthier. And without a doubt, book your regular massage appointments with Paradise Men’s Spa, so you can actually keep up the good work.
