Top 5 Top Magazines for Stress Relief


Updated November 29, 2010

The right magazine subscription can be great for stress relief! Whether or not you practice regular stress management techniques, the monthly magazine delivery can bring with it enough great ideas to last until the next issue. What magazines carry the best stress relief benefits? From Reader's Digest to O, The Oprah Magazine, this list contains our top picks!

1. O The Oprah Magazine

I had to put Oprah's magazine at the top of the list because it contains so many wonderful articles each month, I truly find it to be one of my favorite stress relievers. Aside from covering stress management on a regular basis, this magazine has an eye toward total self improvement and personal growth, with regular sections on finances, relationships, fashion, beauty, wisdom and the latest little treats for you, like the best chocolates or gifts for friends. I'm never disappointed with this magazine, so I recommend it highly (particularly to other women).

2. Reader's Digest

This is a great choice for men and women alike While they almost always have something on stress or health, I also love this magazine as a stress reliever because of the jokes (laughter is a great stress reliever!) and the fact that there are so many interesting and quality articles--usually on inspirational and informative topics--in such a compact magazine, you can really experience the escape of a good read when you're on a busy schedule and can't get immersed in a book.
