3 Of The Best Stress Relieving Activities In Columbus

Some days the struggle is just too real. A bad day at work, an argument with a friend or something little like a bad hair day can make the whole week feel like an endless grind.

We’re here to say: there’s many healthy ways to relieve your daily stress!

If cutting caffeine hasn’t fixed it yet, maybe a more unconventional method would help. Around Columbus, there’s many spaces dedicated to bringing some relaxation back to your life, or just a way to get the frustration out of you! Check out our list of go-to stress relievers a little more healthy than binge watching.

Healthy Ways To Decompress

Of course, winding down from a busy week or month looks different for everyone. Regardless of your personal preference, we’ve got options for however you need to let it out. Does a peaceful night do the trick, or a more physical activity? Maybe you’re not sure what calms you down the best. Try something new from the list and let us know if it helped!

Take A Walk In A Garden

Take a little green time to decompress! Spending quality time in a park or garden has been shown to reduce stress and improve mood, and there are plenty of beautiful parks around Columbus! Find a park close to your home, or try two of our favorites: Topiary Park and Franklin Park Conservatory. 

Topiary Park’s design perfectly recreates a famous George Seurat painting with bushes, trees, and water cut to form people, boats, and even dogs! The conservatory includes a lovely greenhouse of plants and landscaped rooms, with plenty of walking trails surrounding the buildings. Grab your admission at the park website.

Visit A Float Spa

Get free from gravity and your stresses with a float therapy session! In a float spa, you’ll slide into a tub of water and dissolved salt that allows you to float with no effort. Every muscle in your body is free to relax, bringing pain relief and improved blood circulation. With the quiet and calming atmosphere, you’ll have improved focus and mental clarity that gives your brain a break from the rush of life. Downtown, you can book a session at Ebb & Float, or sign up for a monthly membership, good for a one hour float session each month.

Let It All Out In An Axe Throw!

Feeling a little wound up? Release the stress with some axe throws! There’s nothing like working out that work conflict or relationship trouble with some hard throws at a wooden target. Just make sure you’re staying safe while you’re doing it; no collateral damage please! Come down to our downtown location or our New Albany spot with your troubles and leave them behind on the lanes. You can even make this a weekly event with our axe throwing leagues to keep the blues away proactively.

Reserve your spot today for yourself, or bring a few friends and make it group therapy!
