Unless you have extremely ticklish feet, you probably love getting mani/pedis. Who doesn’t love to just sit back and relax while someone massages their hands and feet? You’ll emerge with soft and supple skin and will (literally) be able to put your best foot forward.


The ultimate de-stresser, a massage will rejuvenate you mentally and physically.  Not only will the tension leave your shoulders, back, and neck, but you’ll have a clear mind. It’s also a great time for a power nap!


If you want a break from wedding planning that will also help you look your best on your wedding day, choose a facial! Your pores get clogged daily with dirt, oils, sweat, and bacteria. When you’re stressed, you’ll break out even more! Deal with this by scrubbing off the dead skin cells and clearing out those clogged pores. You’ll leave the spa feeling like an entirely new woman!


A blowout is a great stress reliever if you want something quick. With only a 30-45 minute duration, it’s the perfect amount of time to refresh your mind and walk out with a new found confidence!

Read a good book

Books offer an amazing way to escape your reality. Take an hour or even just enough time to read through one chapter. Place yourself in a different time or perspective and forget your worries. When you decide to get back to work, you’ll feel a new sense of purpose and motivation!

Meditation may seem scary or confusing to you if you’ve never tried it before. You may think it has to do with religion or hypnotism. In reality, meditation is simply a time to reflect and focus on your inner self! Sit in silence for 10 minutes and focus on your breathing. Inhale for 5 counts, hold your breath for 5 counts, and exhale for 10 counts. If you’re feeling ambitious, try a visual meditation, where you envision light healing you, stress leaving your body in the form of smoke, or floating through space. It’s remarkable how light you’ll feel when you’re finished.

Most of us only exercise in order to lose weight and look good in our bikinis. However, exercise is a great way to relieve your stress and focus on something other than wedding planning! Push and challenge yourself to achieve new goals and sweat away your stress. Exercising has so many benefits to your mental and physical health. Developing a habit of exercising when you’re stressed will impact your life in the best way.

Take a walk

If you’re not up to pushing yourself or don’t have time for a full workout, slip on your tennis shoes and take a walk! You can take your dog, listen to your iPod, or just enjoy nature. Breathing in some fresh air and getting your blood circulating are sure ways to relieve your stress and take your mind off of wedding related tasks.
