Fight stress in Houston by visiting these 5 relaxing hotspots

Fight stress in Houston by visiting these 5 relaxing hotspots

Everyone gets a little stressed every now and then, and with the combination of Houston traffic, construction, long work hours and exploding population, it’s no wonder we were ranked as the 11th most stressful city in America by Forbes last year.

So where do you go to relieve your everyday stress? Here are five ways for stressed-out Houstonians to enjoy a little relaxation.

  1. Get lunch and sit outside on the patio at Central Market -- 3815 Westheimer. Good, healthy food, sunshine and live music are sure stress relievers.

  2. Rent a bike and take a ride at the seawall in Galveston.

  3. Visit the Arts of Asia gallery at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Particularly the MFA Houston's collection of Asian art is beautiful and relaxing.

  4. Push the red button at The Big Bubble in the Fourth Ward (along Preston Avenue Bridge). It just feels so good.

  5. Take an afternoon off of work and visit one of our many Houston parks and read a book or take a walk.

If these stress-reduction efforts don't work, you may be among the 6.8 million Americans suffering from anxiety, and it may be time to  seek professional help from a Houston psychiatrist, psychologist or other mental health professional.  Check Angie's List for reviews and talk to your doctor about a referral.
