We all have different ways of detaching from the sometimes-dreary days of life. Maybe work was challenging, or even taking care of the kids. Most people are unable to hit the gym or practice yoga to destress, so they find other ways. Some might make a freshly brewed cup of tea, or a mug of steaming hot chocolate. Some might bury themselves in a Netflix binge or in a delicious meal. However,for some of us corporate souls, nothing hits quite right like a glass of wine after a stressful day – uncork a bottle of Moët & Chandon and we’re golden.
Hear us out – we’re not talking about grabbing a quick glass in the midst of cooking dinner for the kids. Nor are we talking about stealing a few sips while answering emails, doing laundry or struggling with an overly-excited pet – although if this works for you, you’re absolutely free to do so! But what we’re talking about is sitting down and taking the time to savour a glass of wine to truly relax.
Research has shown that wine – red wine, in particular – helps you relax. The ingredients used in the process of creating wine help to block enzymes linked to stress, depression and anxiety. This is mainly due to the plant compound called resveratrol.
Fun fact – resveratrol mainly has antioxidant properties. Red wine, grapes, some berries, and peanuts are some of the best sources for this compound. The skins and seeds of grapes and berries often contain the highest concentration of this substance. These grape components are used in the fermentation of red wine, which accounts for its especially high resveratrol content.
Now that you’re familiar with the benefits of having a glass of wine, let’s take you through four of our favourite wine hampers from us – with some bonuses!
