22 cheap ways for nurses to de-stress


16. Crank Up the Music and Dance

The idea of dancing, especially with a partner, can make some people break out in a cold sweat. But dancing can be a great stress reliever by renewing your sense of creativity, revitalizing your energy and boosting your confidence. It even strengthens your immune system, reduces anxiety and floods your body with serotonin.

Because of its health benefits, dance movement therapy is often used in schools, hospitals and rehabilitation centers to treat conditions, like eating disorders, sexual and physical abuse, autism and substance abuse.

So cast those inhibitions aside, crank up the music, and dance in the privacy of your own home. You can even slip on an oversized dress shirt and socks and rock out like Tom Cruise did in Risky Business.
