Let’s be honest—who isn’t stressed right now? While you can see a masseuse or acupuncturist when you are feeling anxious, you can also get rid of stress at home. Here are three things you can do at home to alleviate stress.

Essential Oils

Essential oils like lavender, lemongrass, or peppermint can be incorporated into your meditation or yoga routine for a more relaxing experience. You can even put a few drops in a diffuser or bath for a calming nighttime routine.

Massage Balls

Massage balls can do more than loosen muscles after a workout—they’re great for mimicking a masseuse’s hands and alleviating stress in hard-to-reach places.

Weighted Blankets

Human touch is one of the best ways to slow down your heart rate and reduce stress and weighted blankets can do it. These blankets mimic hugs, which we could all use more of now.
