Stress Relief Tool – Roll Out Your Stress

A foam roller is especially effective after dealing with a stressful commute.

Muscles tight in your shoulders, lower back or legs? A simple self-care technique for stress relief is to use a foam roller while lying on the floor. It allows you to effectively massage areas of your body quickly without the added time and cost of a real massage. It’s especially effective after dealing with a stressful commute or holiday shopping.1

Google “foam rollers” and order one that fits your budget. Choose one that is advertised as on the softer side, to be more forgiving on your muscles. Take a few minutes in the evening to roll out your tight muscles while watching your favorite show or listening to music.

And if you are short on cash and don’t have the money to buy a foam roller, an old tennis ball might also do the trick.

Please note that there is no guarantee a particular stress relief tool will work for you. Thus you must take complete responsibility for using them and for your own physical and emotional wellbeing.
