8 Ways to Relieve Stress

8 quick and easy ways to relieve stress

 

Unplug

Stress can often be caused by over stimulation. The number one culprit? Digital screens! Take some time to unwind away from your cell phone, tablet, computer, and TV.

Exercise

From a physical standpoint, getting yourself moving actually reduces the stress hormones flowing through your body. Exercise swaps adrenaline and cortisol for endorphins, which is basically like swapping stress for happiness. 

Socialize

Whether you're socializing to share your troubles with a trusted friend or to forget about what's got you on edge, the results can be the same. Talking with friends naturally reduces anxiety which can make you more confident in your ability to cope with your stressors.

Meditate

Stress is often a result of a racing mind, so take time to slow down and turn inward. With a concentration on breath, you'll trigger relaxation.

Create

Focusing on building something new is a great way to change your perspective. While taking time away from stressing, you may unlock a new solution.

Write

When there's a lot going on, it can be helpful and theraputic to get it out of your mind and onto a piece of paper. Whether it's a list to help you get organized or writing creatively to distract yourself, writing is a powerful way to quickly change things up.

Rest

It's tough to get a good night's sleep when you're feeling stressed. So when the feelings get overwhelming, take time for a power nap. With nothing to do but relax and breathe, resting can be a great way to reset.

Get Outside

When things get stressful, turn to Mother Nature. It's been proven that spending time outside in a safe environment can lower blood pressure and stress hormone levels, enhance immune system function, increase self-esteem, reduce anxiety, and improve mood.
