5 Ways To De-Stress
You just received another bill in the mail, you’re starting to feel under the weather, the car isn’t running properly and you are under constant pressure at work. Does this sound familiar? In one form or another, stress tends to affect us all. Is there a way to de-stress? Yes! Here are my personal tips to the rescue!
Laugh – A little laugher may not solve your problems, but it will certainly distract you from them. Perhaps a funny movie or YouTube video will do the trick.
Go For A Walk – The combination of exercise and fresh air is one of the most effective forms of de-stressing. Speaking of which…
Get Some Sunlight – I’m talking about natural sunlight, not the artificial type. It’s a common fact that serotonin levels are increased in the presence of the sun. These levels are responsible for mood elevation. Simply put, a little Vitamin D could easily boost your spirits.
Breathe – Taking deep breaths can be an instant stress reliever. I tend to practice these from a laying position.
Listen To Music – Listening to music tends to have a very relaxing effect on our mind and body. Don’t be afraid to sing along to your favourite song either as it can also release tension.
The next time you are stressed out, which could be at this very moment, try out these tips out and let me know if they worked for you!
