5 Simple Tips to Remain Stress Free

Updated on May 23, 2020

1. Stay in your NOW

A lot of times the stress we create in our lives doesn’t have anything to do with our current life experience but for some stress stems from past decisions, actions or situations. Now I have one question for you... why are you allowing your past to take control of your NOW? defining ourselves for our ”past“ is a huge mistake, why? because we are constantly changing/evolving. Try and think of everyday as a new beginning a fresh start & make it your best one yet. I recommend practicing the art of staying in your now day now moment and release yourself from past regressions that are binding you.

2. Forward movement

Stress for some may come from simply not being content or satisfied with a current situation whether it be a relationship, finances, job etc. And well I’m just going to say it. What are you going to do about it? everyday is an opportunity to embark on something new, another day to accomplish our goals and desires. Start by organizing your thoughts and really think about what you want and most importantly make forward movement towards said accomplishment. What I personally find helpful is making a list of the steps I have to make towards that accomplishment and well simply go for it. If Research has to be done, get on it. Make the calls you have to make, if financial backing is needed make the sacrifices to have the financial backings. It might not happen overnight but it’s absolutely possible as long as you make the necessary steps towards it. Use wisdom along the way and I'm even going to say enjoy the process. You can do it.

“The secret to getting ahead is getting started.”

— Mark twain

3. Food

The foods you are consuming are a big factor in your overall physical & mental health and well being concerned about health issues can definitely add to your stress levels. I’m no doctor but It’s no secret that eating high fat content foods, sugars etc. will lead you to feel tired, less clear minded & not as productive and eventually affect your overall health sooner or later and not in a beneficial way. Be MINDFUL of what you are putting in your body. You can always find healthier alternatives to certain foods you enjoy. You can start by removing unhealthy foods little by little. I‘m also going to add exercise is very important; even a simple walk around the neighborhood to keep your body moving and active can really benefit you. Be kind to your body.

— Ann Wigmore

4. Don’t spread yourself too thin

Be productive but don’t overwhelm yourself. Take control of your schedule and manage your time wisely. Don’t feel the obligation to please or commit to everyone that asks your help. Value yourself and your time, sometimes we have to learn to say no. Also pay attention to what your body is telling you, rest when you feel the need to rest, take a break, its ok.

5. Mindset

I always thought having a negative outlook on life was self-sabotage. Practice waking up with a “good day” mindset and notice the difference in you and everyone around you. Be mindful of the options being presented to you, really think about the choices & decisions you are making as those choices may cause unwanted stress for you down the line.
