Stress is inevitable in daily life. No matter what you do, it is very hard to escape it. It is important for us to stay as stress free as possible. Stress can lead to major health problems so, to avoid too much stress, stress relief is important.

Take a Bath

If you are stressed out from work at the end of the day, a great way to relieve the stress is to take a hot bath. Put bubbles in it and light some candles. The heat from the water will help loosen up your muscles so you can just lay back and relax. You can even put on some nice background music to help calm you down. Just don't dance around in the tub, you don't want to fall.

Write

Another great way to relieve stress is to write. Writing in a journal is a great way to relieve stress. If someone in particular stressed you out, writing a letter to them is a good way to vent to yourself. Be sure not to send it though, you want to relieve stress not start a fight.

When I get stressed out, I write on HubPages. It may not be about me, but writing about something other than what I am stressed about really helps keep my mind off of it. By the time I am done writing an article, most of the time I forgot what I was stressed out about.

Other times, being stressed out about something has actually helped my writing. Part of writing is putting emotion in your writing. Put that stress to good use and write about it! That article, novel, or poem will be amazing.

Create Art or Zentangle

Draw, color, or Zentangle your stress away! How does this decrease your stress level? According to Alive.com (2016), the rhythmic and repetitive motion of drawing helps synchronize hand and eye,body and mind, and can be used to elicit relaxation response.

This relaxtion response is a physical state of deep rest and an alternative to the fight or flight response. It can decrease blood pressure, dimished respiratory rate, and lower pulse rate.

Listen to Music

One of the best ways to relieve stress is to listen to some music. Put on some great dancing music or techno. The beats and the tune should make you happy and want to dance. Dancing around will get your blood flowing and will make you happier.

Talk to Someone

Talking to someone about what you're stressed out about can surprising do wonders. Sometimes, just getting something off your chest can fix the situation right then and there. By talking to someone about it, you won't feel like you are going through the situation alone.

Work Out

Talk about killing two birds with one stone. Having a healthy outlet for your stress can be amazing for your body and your stress. if you are stressed out after a day of work, come home and exercise. The possibilities are endless when it comes to exercising your stress away. Some people choose to go on a walk to relieve stress while others like to push their limits and sweat off their stress. Whichever you choose, just be sure it is right for you.

I hope you can take some of these stress relief tips and put them to good use at the end of your busy stressful day. Whatever you choose to do, make sure it's something you want to do. If you force yourself to do it, you might get even more stressed out. What things do you do to keep the stress away?

      I just don't want to do it by myself. Or, I just don't want to move. Or both. I really need to though. I am definitely experiencing way more stress than I need to right now.
