Everyone knows just how easy it is to get stressed during the holiday season. Stress can cause headaches, trouble sleeping, mental burnouts, muscle tension and can eventually lead to an increased risk of heart disease. Relieving stress doesn’t have to be a chore, so check out these fun tips for reducing stress and living a healthier life!

Go to a Concert


Listening to music has a direct link to stress relief, and what better way to enjoy it than in-person at STAPLES Center, Microsoft Theater or The NOVO? With concerts happening regularly, you’re sure to find some jams and reduce a little stress! 

Have A Glass of Wine


Studies have shown that red wine can help lower your cholesterol, boost your immunity and offer heart-healthy benefits. Our L.A. LIVE restaurants offer great selections of red wine, so join us for a glass to unwind and de-stress!

See A Movie


Watching a movie in theaters is a great way to relax your mind and distract yourself from stress. For a bonus stress-reliever, watch a comedy, as laughter decreases stress hormones and triggers the release of endorphins that can make you feel great!
