How To Conquer Stress In A Weekend

By Chris Green

Modern living places so many demands on you and stress levels can increase dramatically during the week. When the weekend comes, it's important to make the most of it so you can take a break from the firing line. Here's some great tips for you to help you relieve stress and enjoy a peaceful, relaxing weekend.

Listening to music is a great stress-buster and certainly beats watching the garbage dished up on TV these days. Music can inspire, soothe, calm, and excite you and it is one of the greatest pleasures life has to offer in my humble opinion. So why not take in some live music? Whether your tastes lie in classical, opera, jazz, blues or R&B, you'll be able to find somewhere that caters to your taste. Or, you could just schedule some time to sit down and listen to your favorite CD's in the comfort of your home - maybe have a relaxing soak in the tub as you do? It's such a great way to relieve stress, so make it a part of your stress-busting weekend.

Why not take full advantage of the free time the weekend brings by doing something new? You could visit a new town or village, a park, a museum, or even a new restaurant or a coffee shop. You could go watch some sport, or even take up a new sport or hobby. This will broaden your horizons and will keep life fresh and interesting as well as helping to relieve stress.

Massage is a great stress-buster so why not make an appointment to have a massage from a professional masseur or masseuse? It's such a pleasurable way to relax and unwind and it is also great for your body as well as your mind. Lovers may prefer to massage each other and deepen their bond. Make it a priority to include massage as part of your weekend and you'll reap big rewards for your health.

Take a timeout and spend a day or two completely away from the firing line. Go somewhere tranquil, somewhere you can take walks or cycle rides to take in the scenery and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the place. Lakes, a beach, a park, the countryside - whatever you enjoy. Just leave your cares and worries behind and enjoy the peace and tranquility.

Why not spend a cosy night indoors with your lover and cook a special dinner? A great idea is to try different cuisines - be as exotic as you dare! This is time for indulging your relationship so leave the stressful stuff like work elsewhere. Make the effort to dress for dinner and have candles and relaxing music in the background to create a nice ambiance. I know one couple who've done this at least once a month for more than 30 years and they say it's one of the main reasons for their success. Try it, I have and it is a great way to bust stress and improve your relationship.

These tips will help you make the most of the weekend so you not only relieve stress, you will relax and enjoy the free-time the weekend brings. Try as many as you can over the next few weekends and watch your stress levels plummet!
