What are the signs you need a stress detox in the countryside? How can Still Rabbit help you unwind and relax? These are the questions we’ll be answering today.

Why big city life can lead to depression, anxiety, and stress

Living in a big city can be a dream come true for some people. The bright lights, bustling streets, and endless opportunities can make life feel like an adventure. However, the reality is that city life can also be stressful and overwhelming, leading to a range of mental health issues.

The impact of big city living on mental health

1. Big cities are often associated with high levels of pollution.

Air pollution can trigger respiratory problems, heart disease, and other health issues, but it can also impact mental health. Studies have shown that exposure to air pollution can increase the risk of depression and anxiety.

2. Crowded living conditions can cause stress and anxiety.

Living in close proximity to others can also lead to social isolation and a lack of privacy, both of which can have a negative impact on mental health.

3. Big cities are known for their fast-paced lifestyle.

You may always be in a hurry, rushing to get to work or meetings, and constantly connected to your phone and other devices. This situation causes you to be anxious, as you feel like you’re always “on.”

4. Big cities are often lacking in green spaces and natural environments.

Without access to nature, you can become disconnected from the natural world, which can impact your mental health. Even if there are parks where you can jog or walk your dog, your busy lifestyle doesn’t allow you to make the most of them. Researchers have proven that spending time in nature and doing outdoor activities can help reduce stress and anxiety.

Signs that you need to unwind and relax

We get used to always living in “survival mode” and sometimes we ignore the symptoms of burnout and depression until it’s too late. It’s critical to recognise these signs before this happens and take time to get away and disconnect from the world.

Here are some common signs that indicate the need for a stress detox:

1. Feeling overwhelmed

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the demands of work, marriage, family and friends, it may be time to take a step back and relax. Signs of feeling overwhelmed can include difficulty concentrating, racing thoughts, and feeling on edge.

2. Insomnia

Insomnia is a common symptom of stress and anxiety. If you find it hard to fall asleep or wake up several times at night, trying a change of scenery could be the solution. The peace of the countryside, the contact with wildlife and some meditation could help you.

3. Irritability

Are you and your partner arguing often at home? Do you feel irritable or on edge at work? If you find yourself snapping at colleagues or getting easily frustrated, it may be time to step away from the chaos of the city.

4. Headaches

Tension headaches can be a physical symptom of stress and anxiety. If you’re experiencing frequent headaches and your GP has ruled out other causes, it’s a clear sign that you need to switch off and unwind for a couple of days.

  • Relaxing Hot Tub

Indulging in a hot tub outdoors with your partner is a truly magical experience that provides unparalleled relaxation and rejuvenation. As you immerse yourself in the warm, bubbling water, you'll feel your stress and worries melt away. The combination of the soothing water and the fresh outdoor air creates an atmosphere of tranquillity that is perfect for unwinding and connecting with your significant other.

As you soak in the hot tub, you can sip on a glass of wine with your spouse while gazing up at the stars. This creates a romantic and intimate setting that is perfect for couples looking to reconnect and spend quality time together. The warm water helps to soothe muscle pain and tension, making it an ideal way to unwind after stressful months.

Not only is it a romantic setting, but it also has many health benefits. Hot tubs have been known to help alleviate muscle pain and joint stiffness. The warm water improves blood circulation, which promotes healing and reduces inflammation. Soaking in a hot tub is also an excellent way to relieve stress and anxiety. The feeling of weightlessness combined with the therapeutic heat creates a tranquil environment that is perfect for melting away the day's worries. Imagine enjoying a glass of your favourite wine while stargazing with your partner - a hot tub experience is truly a heavenly escape.
