Why Relaxation Is Important To Your Mental Health

If you’re feeling more stressed now than ever, you’re not alone. Recent studies have found that life for today’s adults is far more stressful than it was in the 90s. Worst affected are those between 45-64 years of age, who are experiencing the highest amount of stress. According to research carried out by Penn State, those aged in this bracket were having 64 more days of stress each year when compared to 2010. That’s a lot of stress!

Essentially we feel overworked and stressed out.

So, taking time to care for our mental health is one of the most beneficial self-care practices we can do for ourselves. Experts agree that spending just five minutes of meditation each day can drastically reduce our stress levels.

Our outdoor hammocks are a great tool to help you wind down, relax, or even meditate after a long day at work. We have a range of outdoor hammocks that are specially designed to provide you with comfort and give you that peaceful feeling of floating on a cloud.   

Take for example our ‘king sized outdoor cotton’ hammock. This hammock has a number of features for superior comfort and strength. The secret lies in the diamond-like design of the hammock weave, making this hammock one of our most comfortable in our range.

We recommend starting a nightly ritual of lying in your hammock looking at the stars, or simply swinging in your hammock discussing the day’s activities with loved ones. Better yet, climb into your hammock, and feel it wrap around you as it supports your body while you mediate for five minutes.

Life can be hard, but surrounding yourself with the right tools to create relaxing rituals to support your mental health is necessary. Here at Myhammocks we understand comfort and relaxation; let’s reduce those stressful days one day at a time.
