Tips For Stress Relief/De-Stress

STRESS is synonymous with modern life. Too much of it wrecks our health and robs us of our personal happiness.

Here are some tips to combat stress: ..

Exercise and Meditate

Run, do some yoga, punch a bag at the gym, that's important. Your hormones need a bit of loosening up. The muscles need to begin working again. Exercise is a way to manage stress that doesn’t have to add to your financial woes. A 20-minute walk or jog around your block can yield up to 12 hours of improved mood. The main thing is to find a physical activity that you enjoy, whether it’s dancing or fly fishing. Practice deep breathing and meditation exercises daily, and when you feel tension rising.

If you like massages, go for them.

Stress often manifests in the form of physical ailments, aches, pains, etc.

Massages are a good for the physical body and also, mentally, it relaxes your frayed nerves.

Consciously incorporate some laughter into your daily regime.

Whether it is in the form of jokes, films, comic strips, comedy shows, a funny friend, treat this as part of an imaginary doctor's prescription. Laughter really is the best medicine. It is proven to lower tension, and at the same time, improves blood flow and the health of your heart. Rent a funny movie or hang out with that wannabe-comedian pal, and forget about your worries for a while

Socialize and Mingle with people.

When you are with people, troubles start feeling less burdensome. You begin to get a sense of what everyone else is living with and automatically lighten up.
Spending time with friends and family who give you a sense of belonging, purpose, and fun may provide all the stress relief you need.

Join a fun class.

It should be something that you enjoy - dancing, yoga, pottery, a book reading club… something that takes you away from the bigger events of the day that are a continuous source of stress, something you can actually label as ' me' time.

Prioritizing healthy eating, physical activity, relationships, and sleep is necessary if you want to avoid making your stress worse.
