How to Relieve Stress: Brands to Restore Health and Wellness

April 12, 2023

Is your 9 to 5 all work and no play? When there’s no time to recharge, re-energize and refresh, employees are left running on fumes. Productivity suffers and overall employee wellbeing plummets. Workplaces that move health and wellness from the nice-to-have column to the must-have list are leading the charge toward healthy work cultures and happier team members. 

At Bolt PR, we understand the importance of wellness in the workplace, which is why we kicked off our Bolt Balance program to make wellness a top priority. Bolt PR Senior Vice President Laura Murphy and PR Director Matalee Shambley launched our first-ever virtual wellness retreat where all team members were invited to step away from the work tasks of the day and join together for professionally led sessions meant to recenter and equip our team with wellness techniques to combat stress and burnout. The results were amazing, and now we’re all excited to continue making wellness a focus every day. To accomplish this, we’re sharing how we relieve stress with the help of our favorite brands to restore health and wellness.

Take a look at the top 10 resources we call on when it’s time to make physical, mental and spiritual health our number one focus:


Bala is all about functional fitness equipment. With core values that include terms like playful, design-led, inclusive and boundaryless, Bala is breaking the mold in fitness equipment. Instead of working out in a space that is full of pressure, serious vibes and exclusionary undertones, this brand entered the fitness scene in 2018 to bring the joy back into the world of exercise. Traditional weights that are stuffed in a closet are out of sight, out of mind, but Bala designs are sleek and beautiful, making them ideal to leave out in the living room, which will likely spark more use. Wireless, aesthetically pleasing, made for everyone and designed to inspire play, Bala is on our list for the perfect workout routine, anytime, anywhere.
