5 Tips to Eliminate Stress and Improve Mental Wellbeing

Posted by Natasha de Beneducci | 1 January 2022 | Health & Fitness

Want to relieve stress and maintain your physical health? Don’t we all.

Here at Lady Wimbledon we understand the pressures of keeping in shape despite being busy. However, looking after your wellbeing goes far beyond the perfunctory need to appear toned or slender. With rising levels of S.A.D, and a non-stop schedule that keeps many of us frantic throughout the year, it’s safe to say we could all do with a push to care for our mental and physical wellness. Fear not, we have compiled a quick list of mood boosting exercises and activities that will fit seamlessly into your routine, and help you transition into the New Year.

Online Yoga

Online Yoga is the lockdown phenomenon that took the world by storm. Not only is Yoga one of the best stress relievers as it includes meditation, and breathwork; it increases mobility, joint health and reduces bodily tension allowing both mind and body to unwind and recenter. What’s better, you can do all of this from the comfort of your own home. 

With the World Health Organisation reporting that Yoga helps reduce anxiety, inertia, and provides a boost to the immune system by circulating the body’s lymph, it’s safe to say that if you haven’t already, you should get your yoga pants on. 


Is intensity more of your thing? Then give HIIT a go.High intensity interval training  gets the fat burning and produces absurdly good body toning results. However, beyond this, it’s a phenomenal way to wake up your body, expel the days energy, yet still leave you awake and bursting with energy. Perks to HIIT workouts is that they require little to no equipment. All you need is your enthusiasm, and well stretched muscles.

Join a Dance Class

There’s nothing like some good old carefree dancing. According to research, dancing is one of the most effective aerobics exercises there is. It not only gives you the opportunity to stir up feel good hormones to your favourite tunes, but works all parts of the body whilst improving cardiovascular strength. Don’t miss out on your dose of dopamine, get up and get dancing.

Walk More

It seems obvious, but often the best answers are: WALK, WALK, WALK. This New Years why don’t you switch taking the car or public transport, for the oldest method of transport known to man, walking. Walking is one of the easiest ways to stay healthy, and not only that, it can help with clear the mind, which in turn regulates the emotions. You can’t go wrong with a short stroll. Take some time to break away from the monotony of life’s productive hustle and bustle, and become one with the natural flow of nature.

Social Media Hiatus

In this day and age, it’s so easy to become consumed with social media. We are constantly on our phones, checking our feed, scrolling for entertainment, and all the while time continues to pass us by. According to David Meyer, a psychologist who studies the effect of constant phone use, repeatedly switching between apps, or staying on our phone for extended periods of time, leads to a release in the stress hormone cortisol. Cortisol is our primary fight or flight hormone and is responsible for how we react in high pressure situations. Yet, when our systems are chronically charged with this hormone, physiological changes can be triggered, such as spikes in blood pressure, an increased heart rate, and altered blood sugar levels. So as this new year begins, let us make a concerted effort to return to stillness. Fight the itch to face your phone, and instead take time to reconnect with the world around you.
