BROOKHAVEN, Miss. (WLBT) - Several factors can cause you to be stressed. In the same breath, you can also find many ways to relieve it.

Sometimes we need to break and make some noise before the sense of peace can wash over you.

“My previous place of employment was kind of stressful. But in the meantime, it also came in the idea that it could help others,” said Mendy Russell, owner of Time Out LLC in Brookhaven.

The stress relief center has 4 rooms, each one with a different atmosphere to help de-stress. Russell said the break room gets a lot of attention.

“We’ve had several to come in, people just getting divorced. We’ve had a few that’s come in that just anxiety-ridden, just break stuff. You literally can do it on the wall, you can bounce it off the floor, whatever you feel like doing,” said Russell.

There is also a tanning room, a cozy tranquility room with a sauna and another space for meditation. Russell believes this was the right time to open the center.

“Everybody is so stressed over COVID and the things that are going on. Not every person is the same. You could be so stressed that you need to go in the break room, or you could be a person that would rather be in the sauna,” said Russell.

She hopes this could be the stress reliever people need during hard times.

“Sometimes you just need a little help or a little nudge, a little time out,” said Russell.
