3 Ways to Cut down Stress this Summer

Having a truck load of activities on your to-do-list this summer sounds like fun. However, remember to factor in things that will significantly cut down your level of stress, because the core of holiday is ‘rest.’

As summer closes in slowly, plans on how to make the best out of it seems to increase by the day. Having a truck load of activities on your to-do-list this summer sounds like fun. However, remember to factor in things that will significantly cut down your level of stress, because the core of holiday is ‘rest.’

These tips will help you rest more this summer.

Shopping Spree

You can actually rest and shop at the same time or rather, get more rest when you shop. According to a research, shopping relieves stress, and this habit is a common activity. A good number of people use retail therapy to relieve stress and lift their mood. While shopping, you feel an impulse to buy something, and that feeling coupled with the thought of owning something new makes you happy and relaxes your nerves.

You do not necessarily have to buy every single thing on your shopping list, but you can get the same feeling you derive from actual shopping. You can go window-shopping – whether in a physical store or an e-commerce platform. You can also assume your wardrobe as a boutique, but in this case, select clothes you no longer need and dispose of them to make way for new ones.

Go Cashless

Are you in Nigeria, Ghana, or Kenya, planning to spend this summer out of your country of residence? You can enjoy your holiday from any part of the world, and with ease. You don’t need to worry about carrying money [too little or too much] while embarking on your summer trip. All you need is a dollar card that gives you instant access to your money from anywhere in the world.

You can also get an international debit card linked to your domiciliary account, which allows you book flights, pay for hotel reservations, shop online and pay for anything. You can transact in major currencies without going through the hassles of visiting a bureau de change office. If you need to buy anything abroad, the dollar card does all the work!

Get a Massage

The benefits of receiving full body aromatherapy massage cannot be overemphasized. A short shoulder massage can go as far as inducing a nap, talk more of the real deal. Whether you need to have a moment of relaxation, reduce muscle tension or get relief from chronic pain, a therapeutic massage can enhance your overall sense of emotional and physical well being, thereby giving you that inner peace you need this summer.

Be reminded that your summer should be all about resting and getting fully refreshed for life after the holidays.
