Have a Stress-Less Mother’s Day

This Mother’s Day, ditch the expensive gifts for meaningful activities that mom will love! Create more memories and less stress with these simple Mother’s Day ideas:

  • Barefoot Picnic– Multiple studies show that going barefoot can lift your mood, decrease levels of the stress hormone cortisol, and possibly help reduce blood pressure.
  • Handwrite a Note– According to researchers at UC Davis, individuals who write notes of gratitude are more optimistic about life.  A thoughtful note also makes the perfect Mother’s Day present!
  • Coupons for Hugs– This classic gift has been scientifically proven to elevate mood, foster trust, relieve stress, and much more!
  • Lavender Bath– Treat mom to an  at-home aromatherapy session by adding a little lavender essential oil to her bath.  Lavender oil has been clinically shown to reduce stress, anxiety, and pulse rate.
