5 WAYS TO DE-STRESS AT WOODSIDE
April is National Stress Awareness Month. At Woodside, we strive to provide our members with a comprehensive wellness facility so that you can become the version of yourself you want to be. Here are five ways you can use Woodside to overcome your stress this month.
This past year, you have probably experienced some sort of stress. When you experience stress, your brain sends out a hormone through the body that triggers your flight or fight response which is designed to protect your body in case of an emergency by preparing you to react quickly. Overtime, if stress is left untreated it can cause a multitude of health issues throughout the body such as anxiety, depression, headaches, insomnia, high blood pressure and a weakened immune system just to name a few. Stressors can sometimes go away on their own and others might linger with us – having the right resources to combat ongoing stress is essential to your overall health and wellness. We have broken down five ways for you to use the Club to help you destress.
1. RELAX IN THE INDOOR POOL AREA
Feel your stress melt away in Woodside’s Indoor Pool Area. This space was specifically designed as a place for relaxation, rejuvenation and recovery with five wet and dry temperature zones to meet any wellness needs. Whether you are sitting in the expansive hot tub to unwind after a long day, loosening stiff joints in steam room or taking advantage of all the purifying benefits of the dry sauna we are sure you can find a space to meet your wellness needs.
