We are all stressed out at some time, maybe you have a job interview or an upcoming test. You could be stressed because you have too much to do or your finances are strained. Some of us are stressed so much, that we don't even realize it anymore. How awful is that? Next time you're stressed, try one or all of these stress relievers.
Put on some music. Music is a great mood changer. It actually affects your brain and can lower blood pressure. We all have at least one song that makes us happy. It could remind you of a great time you had, or a person that makes your heart sing, or the words alone might lift your spirit. Music can take you to a whole new mindset and reenergize you.
Go for a walk. Sometimes it helps to just remove yourself from everything. Walks can be calming. Nature is a great mood balancer. It can calm you and give you a peacefulness. Removing yourself lets you regain perspective and come back in a better state. Work it out. Go to the gym, do some yoga, or even just some stretches. Exercise can get rid of that nervous or irritated energy. It releases those feel good endorphins and helps you chill out.
Organize your sh*t. There's always a calming effect when everything is clean and put away. Even organizing your finances or scheduling appointments you've been putting off can bring a huge sense of calm. Imagine not having to scour your desk looking for the bill you have to pay today. When you know where everything is, it gets rid of that frazzeled feeling.
Laugh!! Laughter releases endorphins, making you happier. Honestly, you can't be laughing and be all uptight at the same time. So watch a funny movie, call that hilarious friend, or spend some time with kids.
Meditate your stress away. Using meditation or even hypnosis can alter your brain's state. It can relax you or help you come up with a solution. It's kind of like when your trying super hard to remember something, so it stays just out of reach. But once you relax and stop focusing on it, whatever you were trying to remember just pops into your head. Added bonus, you feel so reenergized after.
Get Social. Sometimes when we're stressed out, we feel like we're in it all by ourselves. That makes it isolating and even scarier. So by calling a friend, getting in a discussion group, or connecting with others on social media you realize you're not alone. You can see how others have handled similar situations, or sometimes it helps to just talk about what's going on.
Lastly, and my favorite pamper yourself. Scheduling a massage, a hair appointment, accupuntcture, or even just a shopping trip can all melt away stress. You can even go bigger and get away for the weekend. Nothing rejuvenates you like a vacation (or even a staycation). Sometimes we are so busy that we forget to take care of ourselves. These things not only pamper you, but they relax you and improve your whole outlook. Think about it, have you ever been stressed out after a massage?
Honestly, do whatever works for you. Throw everything at it. These are not your only options.
