Here are some ways to help you reduce your stress levels and improve your health in the process:
Mindfulness is all about finding ways to be completely present in the here and the now rather than thinking about what has happened in the past or might happen in the future.
Take a moment to stand or sit quietly and take a few deep breaths, filling your lungs. You should feel your belly expand as you breathe in.
Laughter is great for stress relief.
Listening to music is a brilliant way to relieve stress.
Regular exercise helps us not only to relieve stress but also to be more resilient against it in the future.
Going for a walk is a great way to lower your stress levels.
Getting a good night’s sleep can help you to feel better, improve your health and help lower your stress levels.
Time with friends and family can be a great way to take your mind off your worries.
Many of us feel stressed and overwhelmed because we’ve taken on too much. Practice saying no to the things that stress you out.
Stress is a massive problem these days and definitely something to be taken seriously. Try some of the above suggestions and see if they can improve your health and wellbeing.
Best wishes, David.
