Life can get busy. Between work and family obligations, it’s easy to get run down by stress. That’s why it’s important to take some time, at least once a week (if not more) for yourself – to relax, regroup and prepared to take on the challenge of everyday life.

There are many ways to reduce stress but some are more effective than others. Here are some effective ways to reduce stress – naturally!

Draw a bubble bath

A warm bath can help to relieve tense muscles and ease your mind. Just 10 minutes in the bath can help improve your overall mood and your response to mental stressors.

Adding a bath soak with a pleasant scent helps to enhance the stress reducing properties of the bath. Try Pure Fiji’s coconut milk bath soak with its blend of exotic nut oils and mood-boosting infusions, like guava, coconut, mango and orange blossom.

To further boost your experience, add an island votive candle from Pure Fiji to transport you to paradise.

Use a room spray

Using a spray in your bedroom, living room or any other room in your house that you frequent can help you to de-stress throughout the day. It will not only freshen up your house, but the scent can also help to boost your mood, ease your troubled mind and put your nerves to rest.

Pure Fiji’s room mist transforms your space into a tropical paradise with infusions like coconut, mango, pineapple and passionflower.

Eat for stress relief

Certain foods can help to relieve tension, stabilize blood sugar and improve your emotional response to stressful situations. Eating clean and focusing on natural, not processed, foods is important when trying to combat stress. Eat plenty of leafy green vegetables, proteins (like turkey), dark chocolate, complex carbs (like oatmeal) and fruits.

Give yourself a DIY Facial

The effects of a stressful lifestyle are not only apparent in our minds and bodies but can also be visible on our skin. Stress affects the skin by causing inflammation, blotchiness and redness.

An at-home facial is a great way to combat these effects, while also providing a soothing, stress relieving experience. There are four simple components to any at-home DIY natural beauty facial routine: a gentle cleanser, steam, exfoliating peel and a moisturizer.

Make sure you hydrate

Stress and dehydration go hand in hand. All of our organs, including the brain, need water to function properly. If you’re dehydrated, your body isn’t running (or feeling well) which then leads to stress. If water isn’t a favourite for you, try a great tasting detox water that contains a variety of fruits and herbs. Not only are you staying hydrated, but you’re also getting the benefits of added nutrients.


We all know that exercise is good for our bodies and can help to trim our waistline, but it can also act as a stress reliever too. Any form of exercise, whether intense cardio training, relaxing yoga or even just a walk around the block can go a long way towards reducing your stress levels.

Physical activity helps increase the production of your brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters, called endorphins.

Exercise can also help to ease your mind and clear any negative or stress inducing thoughts from your brain, thus helping you to relax.

Give yourself a hot oil head massage

Giving yourself a head massage provides so many benefits – from softer strands, to a healthy scalp, to combating dandruff and reducing stress. This pampering treatment can be done anytime you need a pick-me up. Use an oil with a blend of coconut oil, macadamia, dilo and sikeci oil like Pure Fiji’s nourishing exotic oil.

Not only does it smell amazing, it is also anti-fungal and helps to combat dandruff.


Start a morning meditation ritual

To effectively combat stress, it’s important that you activate your body’s natural relaxation response. To do so, practice a relaxation technique, like meditation, on a daily basis.

Meditating can help reduce everyday stress and boost your energy and mood. Meditating in the morning starts your day off on the right track and helps keep you in a positive frame of mind.

Drink a stress-relieving detox drink

A detox drink helps reduce stress and provide you with a boost of energy.


Give yourself a manicure

A good manicure or pedicure is a great way to reduce stress and promote relaxation.

Painting your nails is a great way to take your mind off everyday stresses and a great set of nails can boost your overall confidence.

Life can be stressful, but there’s no reason why you need to let it get you down.

Try some of these simple tips for stress relief and you’ll be feeling relaxed in no time!
