How to Stay Stress Free

Just because we can’t travel and explore, doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate a stay-cation. Although this stay-cation was unplanned, making the best out of what we have is all we can do. In light of Stress Awareness Day, we created a list of things to do to reduce stress, keep spirits high and remain hopeful about the future.

Take a Virtual Work Out Class
Break a sweat and move your body with an online workout — It’s the perfect way to give to yourself and your community. Local studios Fusion Hot Yoga and Leela Yoga are offering live classes via Zoom. Stay moving while remaining connected with your exercise community and supporting Bothell-owned businesses.

“Go to” a Concert
Avoid long beer lines and appreciate personal space by attending a concert virtually from your living room couch. Stream your favorite concert or a concert you wish you had attended. Looking for a live stream? Tune into The Cottage’s Facebook live musical performances on the weekend. You don’t even need a Facebook account to tune in!

Be the Concert
Instead of attending a concert, be the star of your own show. Host a virtual karaoke with your favorite pals. Need some liquid courage? Bothell’s breweries and wineries can help with that. There’s no better time than the present to hone in on your karaoke skills. It’ll be far less embarrassing to fail in front of your friends virtually than on stage in front of a large group of strangers.

Host a Living Room Picnic
What’s more fun than having your favorite meal in the comfort of your own home? Having your favorite meal on your living room floor. Order in or pick up food curbside from your favorite Bothell restaurant and set up a “picnic” indoors. Throw down a towel, grab a bottle of wine and call up your friends.

Walk Outside
Take a short walk outside where it’s safe to practice social distancing. Take a moment to disconnect from your screens, soak up some vitamin D and breathe in the fresh air. There’s nothing more cleansing than a solo walk outside or in nature. 

Take a Break
As a reminder, it’s okay to do nothing during this time. You can skip the FaceTimes and the Zoom calls if you prefer solitude. This is a great time to relax, catch up on sleep or re-read your favorite book.

Whatever you choose, we hope you are able to remain positive and relatively stress-free. Good times are still on the horizon.
