Ah, stress. We’re all familiar with it. The heart palpitations, sweaty palms, trembling lips, and gritting teeth. In our younger days, we might’ve thought that Summer would bring with it relief from all stress. “No more pencils, no more books,” and all that. Now that we’re older, we know that’s not the case. Summer has its own stresses from wedding season galore (“What gift should I get?!”) to trying to keep up with work deadlines when the beach is calling.
Stress isn’t something that should go unaddressed. Debilitating, anxiety-inducing, and generally awful, persistent stress can hurt your morale, productivity, and health. Chronic stress is linked to depression, heart disease, weight gain, and memory loss [i]. Plus, long-term stress can even throw your immune system out of balance, reducing your ability to ward off infections and illnesses [i]. No Bueno.
It seems these days, everyone is stressed out (Twenty One Pilots will back me up on this one) and we at Scrub Inspired are no strangers to stress, either. That is why we have created a line of products that are absolutely perfect for getting back your chill.
