Ohio is one frazzled state. In Forbes' recent ranking of America's most stressful cities - based on everything from the unemployment rate to the number of sunny days - this state's urban trifecta is a bit under the weather. Cleveland ranks high as the 4th most burdened burg, while Cincinnati comes in 19th and Columbus a bit lower at 31.
It seems we Ohioans need to work hard to keep our blood-pressure levels at a minimum? Here are my favorite ways to tackle tension:
- Go for a run
- Take a bubble bath with soft tunes in the background
- Dance dance dance to loud country music
- Call my best friend :)
- Play with new hairstyles
- Organize my bedroom
- Try a new recipe, like these cinnamon rolls I've been waiting to try!
- Veg in front of the TV with sitcoms like How I Met Your Mother
- Treat myself to a coffee
- Curl up in my PJs
What do you do when you're stressed out?
