Tax-Day Stress Relievers

Tax Day. It can be, well, “taxing”… on more than just your wallet. Getting those numbers crunched and that deadline met can leave you with a hefty headache and a serious dose of anxiety. (Not to mention the dent in your savings.) Alas, the day has come, and we hope you feel at least a little relief that it’s over and done with.

But if April 18, has you feeling less than relieved, we’ve got a few relaxing tips, tricks, and activities for this tedious Tax Tuesday. So sit back, relax, and sip your chamomile tea while perusing our most zen-inducing ideas.

Bubble Bath

Who says bubble baths have to be a pre-bedtime activity? Soak your troubles away morning, noon, and night. Grab a book, a cup of coffee (or wine, depending on the time!), and breathe in the smell of soap and candles.

Yoga Class

Stretch and breathe and sweat those taxing toxins out of your body in a yoga class. Or, just get out a mat and do some positions in the quiet of your own home.

Run It Out

Get your cardio on and clear your mind with a totally immersive cardio experience. Play your favorite tunes and get outside. The weather is begging for it!

Tea Time

Seriously, I wasn’t kidding. Brew yourself a pot of something warm and herbal and soul satisfying. Or, better yet, treat yourself to tea time somewhere away from home.

Plan a Vacay

Anticipating a big refund? Lucky you! Immerse yourself in tropical eye-candy research and plan yourself a little getaway. You deserve it. Conversely, if you’re budget is about to be negatively impacted, plan a fun and free day outing. Trips to local hiking trails, parks, and beaches will help you unwind without further taxing your bank account.

Buy a Nice Bottle of Wine

Celebrate or commiserate with a nice bottle of red at the end of this long, hard day. Wine-not?! It’s been a doozy. A glass (because, moderation) sipped slowly and whilst reading a book or having a chat or watching a guilty-pleasure TV show will do wonders for your heart and soul.

Get a Mani-Pedi

Pamper your digits and toesies (it’s almost flip-flop season, after all). A little massage and some pretty polish will brighten your spirits (and fingers). If you have a bit more time and wiggle room in the budget, indulge in a Dry-Bar blowout and you’ll feel like a million bucks… regardless of the what your tax docs actually say.
