We made it! The Greater Tampa Bay Area is the #1…. most stressful city in all the land. That’s disappointing, huh? Sperling’s BestPlaces, a research firm that specializes in researching livability, just released their annual study. The study analyzed a variety of factors associated with stress, including suicide, divorce, crime, joblessness and length of commuting. It may be sunny in Tampa Bay, but life isn’t always a beach here.
Read about the study:
It’s important to find ways to relieve stress in your life. Some people may take up sports, find a hobby they love, or sail catamarans. Myself, I don’t have the time or cash for a catamaran (sigh) but I can squeeze an hour out of my week for a massage – and I do. Some massage therapists are always the last to get work done. Not me! Massage releases hormones into the body that relieve stress, improves circulation & promotes overall wellness. The effects are cumulative – so get your regular massage done, because each one builds on the last, and I don’t intend to let my stress beat me.
