Yes, there are other things you can do in your living room! Activities that allow you to interact with friends and family members—such as a lively game of cards—are easy ways to decompress while keeping your mind working. And if you just can’t be compelled to get off the couch, why not at least invite your sweetheart to join you? If your intimacy leads you to the bedroom, all the better: Sex is a renowned stress reliever. One scientific study demonstrated that when couples have sex, their blood pressure returns to normal more quickly the next time they encounter a stressful situation—and the effect lasts for as much as a week.
