What Do People Find Relaxing?

What Do People Find Relaxing?

Elements Massage Gilbert

To celebrate National Relaxation Day this past August, Elements Massage set out to discover what people find relaxing. To do this, Elements surveyed 180 adults, asking them to rank how stressful they found ten different, fairly common activities. And the results are in! The survey was used to create the following list of which activities people find least stressful (at the top) to most stressful (at the bottom):

  1. Getting a massage
  2. Listening to music
  3. Having a nice dinner
  4. Going on vacation
  5. Watching TV
  6. Working out
  7. Shopping
  8. Spending time with in-laws
  9. Commuting to work
  10. Working

As you can see working and commuting to work were at the bottom of the list as the most stressful activities. Not surprising right? Whereas getting a massage was found to be the least stressful activity being favored over taking a vacation or even relaxing in front of the television. Why might this be? We at Elements Massage in Gilbert would suggest massage ranked the highest because there are few other things that take only an hour and also have the same benefits for your mental and physical wellbeing as massage therapy. An hour of therapeutic massage is not only relaxing, but it also reduces the physical and mental symptoms of stress as well. It rebalances the hormones in the body, boosts the immune system, as well as ease muscle pain and fatigue. Massage therapy can even reduce headaches, neck pain, and shoulder tension!
