3 Therapeutic Indoor Activities to Relieve Stress

Our fast-paced life has led to excessive stress levels. Being stuck in this never-ending cycle can be stressful, especially when there are limited ways to deal with the issue.

Here’s a toolbox of various therapeutic ways to relieve stress at home.

Quick At-Home Workouts

Quick workouts can help relieve stress significantly. It doesn’t matter what kind of movement you engage in.  From a quick set of jumping jacks and pushups to some sit-ups and squats for 30 seconds, working out will raise your heart rate and even activate dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin, the happy hormones.

These mood-boosting neurotransmitters will help you cushion your anxiety and get back to your everyday tasks much efficiently.
