Tualatin, OR (PRWEB) August 16, 2012
A recent study by the Journal of Applied Social Psychology found that stress levels in the United States have actually increased 18-24 percent since 1983. Oregon Hot Tub, a HotSpring Spas dealer selling new and used hot tubs with stores in Portland and surrounding areas like Tualatin and Tigard, OR has decided to do their part in reducing stress by publishing stress reduction tips and providing free test soaks in new or used hot tubs in any of their 5 showrooms.
“Most people experience stress at one time or another. Whether they feel anxiety and pressure from work, friends or other places, it can be overwhelming. While some stress is normal, elevated levels need to be controlled or they can lead to more serious health complications,” said Sue Rogers, president of Oregon Hot Tub. “Luckily, there are ways to lower stress in our life. And once people learn what you do, taking steps to control it is easy,” continued Rogers. Here are three easy ways to get started:
Get Your Exercise - Doctors and health care practitioners have been telling people the benefits of exercise for years, but here’s where it really matters. When life gets people frazzled, taking a brief walk or a run is the perfect way to clear the head and make sense of stressful situations in life. Getting the heart pumping takes energy away from stress and anxiety and replaces it with endorphins- the feel good chemicals the body releases during exercise. Even a short walk during a lunch hour can leave most people more focused, reenergized and ready to face the challenges that lie ahead.
Play to Your Strengths - What is it about successful people that make them so in control and seemingly stress free? One theory is that they have learned how to effectively play to their strengths. What does that mean? Simply that in order to ensure we excel in everything we do, people choose to do the things they are great at. It’s an easy way to ensure success and keep stress levels low. While people can’t always choose every activity throughout their day, when they’re faced with a choice, people should make the right one and play to their strengths.
Use a Hot Tub to Relax - Soaking in a hot tub is an easy and enjoyable activity that will give people the time they need to refocus and calm the mind. It’s a fantastic way to ease aches and pains from tension and just about anything that hurts feels better after a dip in warm, massaging water. Hydrotherapy has been used for centuries to calm the mind and body, making it easy to refuel, recharge and relax. Plus, a hot tub can be used any time of year, day or night, meaning users can get the soothing, relaxing comfort anytime they’re ready. Plan to use a hot tub in the evenings after dinner and prepare the body and mind for a deep restful sleep.
People of all shapes and sizes experience stress. And while it’s a normal response to many of life’s unique experiences, it should be managed properly. Learning how to control your stress is the first step in feeling better, living longer and avoiding many health complications down the road.
“To encourage local residents to check out the benefits of soaking in a hot tub to help relieve stress and improve their overall health and well-being, Oregon Hot Tub is providing free test soaks at all their showrooms. We do recommend however that people wanting to schedule their free 30-minute soak call us ahead of time to reserve their spot,” commented Dave Doornink, Oregon Hot Tub’s Marketing Director.
