Happy comes in every SHAPE & SIZE. #EveryBODYHappy
We asked Blink members Tricia and Jazmine (@jt_fitcouple) how they relieve stress. Jazmine: Once I start cooking, I’m relaxed. There’s nothing on my mind. I have a little TV in the kitchen and watch episodes of my shows. Tricia: I like to cook too, but when I come into the kitchen I’m always like "use this seasoning”, let’s get this done, I’m hungry! I like to be done in 20 minutes max. Experts, say cooking helps relieve anxiety and doing it with someone can be a great bonding experience, which releases the oxytocin - the “love hormone” - and gives you a feeling of well-being. #NoStressZone

For @Epicurious Editor @DavidTamarkin, cooking IS meditation. “When we talk about cooking being "relaxing," what I think we really mean is that it's distracting—it forces us to stop obsessing about the rude thing our boss said in the morning meeting and instead focus what's happening right now on the countertop. If it's been a bad day, find a recipe that requires repeated actions, like rolling meatballs between your hands, or trimming the ends off 4 pounds of carrots. The prep work will force you to slow down, refocus, and think about nothing other than the meal you're making for yourself.” Photo Credit: @chelsealouiskyle #NoStressZone

Oxytocin, also known as the “love hormone,” can help reduce stress by giving you a warm relaxed feeling. We asked @elizabethyuko, Health & Sex Editor for @sheknows to give us the lowdown on how to experience more oxytocin.. “Your brain produces it whenever you bond with someone. That can mean friendly intimacy, the kind you can experience with a family member, child, or even your dog.” Of course, you can also experience the effects of oxytocin by getting. it. on. #NoStressZone

Make yourself some Golden Milk. @Epicurious Editor @DavidTamarkin gave us a recipe for his fave relaxation beverage. “Yes, yes, Golden Milk was trendy for a hot minute, and perhaps it's even passé at this point. But you know who has two fistfuls of ginger and doesn't care? This guy. I love this drink because it's full of antioxidants, it's anti-inflammatory, and it's a warm blanket of a drink that puts me right to sleep. See our story to see how it's done: (📷: @chelsealouisekyle)

“An at-home spa day is the perfect de-stresser.” Whenever Blink Marketing Director @dubbse needs to de-stress, she raids her beauty cabinet and heads for the couch. “I love to get into my comfy PJs at home, drink green tea, do a face mask, hair mask, foot mask and do my nails.” #NoStressZone
