In the rush to take care of everyone else, don’t forget to think about yourself, too. Continuous stress with no relaxation or relief can cause headaches, stomach upset, elevated blood pressure, sleep issues and more. This winter, try a few of these tips to help keep yourself calm and bright.
Exercise. Try a new class at Equinox. Take a jog or a spin on the Crescent Trail. Or just take a brisk 15-minute walk around the block. Just one little workout can help boost your mood for up to 12 hours.
Socialize. Spend some relaxed time with friends. Meet up for coffee and a croissant at Le Pain Quotidien. Relax by the fountain outside Barnes & Noble to talk about a book you just read. Catch a movie at Landmark Bethesda Row Cinema.
Pamper yourself. Treat yourself to a mani-pedi at Blue Zen or indulge in one of the many massage or facial offerings at Equinox. (We love the Chocolate Facial for pure indulgence with no calories!)
