The holiday season is here, and as hard as we all try to just eat, drink, and be merry, inevitably, we’re more stressed than at any other time of year. Did I say, “as hard as we try”? Clearly there is a disconnect between the reason for the season and, well, reality.
Each year, the holidays promise food, festivities, family, and fulfillment. We give thanks, look hopefully to the fresh start of a new year, and plan a relaxing holiday “break”. Why is it the most stressful time of year for most people? For various reasons, men, women, children, everyone suffers from holiday stress. For almost two years, we’ve spent our holidays amidst the strain of a global pandemic as well. Now is the perfect time to practice stress relief meditation.
Make the holidays special and stress free this year, with the Lovetuner, which combines the powerful 528hz frequency with a profound breathing exercise, helping you to quickly relieve stress and anxiety.
Stress Relief Meditation
Stress relief meditation can take many forms, but most simply, it is focused and mindful breathing and awareness of one’s thoughts. You don’t have to be an expert to reap the benefits of stress relief meditation. The Lovetuner is the perfect tool to help you enter a meditative state in only a few cycles of breathing.
You can use the Lovetuner before, during, or after meditation. If you are in a rush, or need a quick break throughout the day, the Lovetuner can supplement meditation, bringing you instant relaxation
Here is an example of a simple stress relief meditation practice that anyone can do:
Step 1: Find a quiet, comfortable place to sit.
Step 2: Observe your breathing. Is it fast? Slow? Is your chest expanding or is your stomach expanding?
Step 3: Practice “Box Breathing”. With your Lovetuner, inhale for four counts, hold for four counts, exhale for four counts, and hold for four counts. Repeat as many times as you’d like, but try for at least three rounds!
Step 4: Be aware of the thoughts that enter your mind as you meditate. Observe them, whether they are positive, negative, or neutral, but don’t latch on to any particular thoughts. This is your time to be mindful, calm, and relaxed. Watch the thoughts pass by as your attention returns to your breathwork.
Step 5: Enjoy your relaxed state. Stress relief meditation has the power to relieve anxiety, lower blood pressure, and ease pain among many other possible benefits.
With the holidays barreling around the corner, we’ve compiled a guide for the best stress relief products available for this holiday season.

Stress Relief Gifts for Her
Wine culture has led us to believe that the primary way for women to destress is by having a glass (or four) of wine, and although there’s nothing wrong with enjoying some drinks during the holidays, wine isn’t the best stress reliever. It also might be frowned upon to send your kids to school with six bottles of wine for each stressed-out teacher. Here are some stress relief gifts for her that will truly allow the women in your life to enjoy moments of peace and mindfulness.
1. Lovetuner Purple 528hz Breathing & Meditation Device
This is the perfect gift for the women in your life who could use instant stress relief. The purple Lovetuner can be worn around her neck, so whether she is stuck in traffic, taking a break from the kids, or finding a moment to herself in the office, the woman you care about can destress and connect to the 528hz love frequency in just minutes. As she focuses her thoughts and breathing, she can meditate on the power of the purple Crown chakra, the most spiritually abundant chakra. Treat her to the stress relief of the 528hz love frequency and the healing benefits of opening the Crown chakra.
2. Lovetuner T-Shirt
Remind her that she is a gift to you and to the world with a Lovetuner tee. Each time she reaches for this shirt, she will remember the Lovetuner mission: One World, One Love, One Tone. The Lovetuner movement will change the world, and it all starts with love. Whether she is meditating, exercising, or working in this shirt, she will remember to breathe and connect to the world around her.
3. Green Lovetuner
When people think of stress relief gifts, it’s easy to come up with ideas that seem thoughtful on the surface, but they don’t actually bring the user peace and healing. An eye mask or stress ball might get a few uses. A gift from the heart, for the heart, will be priceless. The green Lovetuner is the color of the heart chakra, and it makes a perfect stress relief gift for women. Women are often overlooked in conversations of heart health, but it is vital that women take care of their hearts and practice loving themselves unconditionally. The Lovetuner gives users a shortcut to reaching a meditative state. While meditating for an extended period of time is ideal, the Lovetuner can help relieve stress when there are only a few spare moments in a day.
