Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14) Cures Stress

ATLANTA (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Though many find that Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14) can be a stressful holiday, one expert says it can actually be a soothing, calming experience.

Dr. Kathleen Hall, founder of The Stress Institute in Atlanta, Georgia, says instead of letting the day of love shatter your nerves, you should use it as a time to let go of all the baggage on your shoulders.

She says, “For one day, clear your mind of your enormous worries and focus on love. Love is a healing balm to the mind, body, and soul. Love creates energy, hope, and mental and physical health.”

To turn Valentine’s Day into a day of healing, Hall recommends wearing lots of purple because it’s “the color of happiness and hope” and will make you feel energized.

She also says that buying a single stem of your favorite flower and treating yourself to lots of chocolate boosts endorphins, relieves anxiety, and soothes the Valentine’s Day blues.
