Not only is exercise good for your body, it’s also a great way to release stress after an overwhelming day. While rest can obviously provide you with relaxation, it’s also worth noting that exercise can also be relaxing. This is because endorphins, the neurochemicals that help minimize discomfort and bring about feelings of euphoria and general well-being, are released when you work up a sweat.
Exercise also boosts your confidence and sense of control. Meet other fit and active mamas who enjoy yin yoga, circuit training, mat Pilates, and Vinyasa yoga at Move & Flow fitness classes. Or if you want a more exhilarating activity that combines conditioning, and strength training with yoga and pilates-inspired movements, check out drumming-based cardio workout.
Soothe your senses
Another trick to calm yourself is to calm your senses. Light a chamomile-scented candle or add a few drops of lavender to your diffuser—both scents can help you relax and sleep better.
Listen to music
Disconnect for a little while and tune in to your favorite melodies. You can even dance or sing along. Listening to music has a relaxing effect on your mind and body. For a more soothing experience, try playing classical or instrumental ones.
