Swipe the stress away.

By Azra Shuib | November 26 2019

You just had a tiring day at work, and you had to face a horrendous traffic jam before coming home to see your laundry piling up. It’s been a stressful day and you can only get a few hours of sleep before starting all over again the next day.

If you constantly face a tiring routine, it can take a toll on your body. It’s good to be proactive and excel in everything you do, but if you don’t take any rest it will eventually affect your productivity. There is also a big chance that you don’t even realize that you’re actually stressed until you reach your breaking point.

Stress response is called the “fight-or-flight” reaction. This is how your body will protect you from harm when you feel threatened. During stress response, your heart rate increases, breathing quickens, muscles tighten, blood pressure rises. If this is prolonged, you will get body aches and become more vulnerable to illness and injury.

If you care about your body and health, take a break. And what is a better way to forget about the busy life other than a trip to the spa capital of the world. At Thanyapura Health and Sports Resort in Phuket, you can get relaxation treatments while enjoying the beauty of the rainforested island.
