10 Ways To Relieve Stress Onboard a Superyacht
Monday, February 5, 2018
Yachting is hard work - after a long day working as yacht crew, you need time to soothe your body and soul.
What are 10 ways to relieve stress onboard a superyacht?
After a long day working on a superyacht, you will definitely need a step outside. Take a deep breath in the open air at deck or even off the yacht for a quick walk if you're by the docks.
Always try to fit in sometime during the day for a workout, exercise releases a hormone called oxytocin which is triggered by working out among other activities and has an anti-stress effect. A healthy body has a healthy mind!
Get off your superyacht and basking the ambiance of nature.
We all know that stress goes out the window when you go for a massage. Whether you get one of your yacht crew onboard to give you a quick massage or even if you do it yourself - Relax those muscles, relax your mind and enjoy the massage.
Often times we get caught in technology and forget to appreciate the small things in life. Give your phone and social media a break. Disconnect to reconnect!
6. Family and Friends
When you have a moment off your superyacht job and aren't off exploring the world, make time to speak with your family and friends. Having a piece of home while you're away and stressed definitely puts a smile on your face.
Throw yourself on a comfortable chair and stay away from technology. Open a beautiful book that matches your taste - worry about nothing else and get lost in your book.
8. Self Improvement
We get so caught up in the world we forgot to make time for ourselves. Read a book, take up a course, learn a new hobby, anything!

Meditation is not for everyone, some people can't sit still for 5 minutes whereas others find peace and comfort sitting down for a few minutes. Find a quiet spot, close your eyes and release all that stress. Whether you're sitting by the docks, in a corner of a room or within nature, yachties should definitely try and see if meditation is something that helps relieve stress.
Sleep. I can't stress enough how important sleep is. Some people prefer being a busy body to relieve stress, some prefer a peaceful environment and some prefer to sleep. If this is your thing, do it - take a moment to nap and revive yourself before you're off working your yacht job.
