How do you help relieve stress?
When you're stressed, what do you do in order to help relieve it?
I'm not a very stressful person but when I do have stress I play video games. Or I get in the car and drive. Or, lastly, I do some yoga.
I get quite stressed at work and the only thing that works for me and really "resets" me is an hour of exercise, usually some form of cardio.
When I'm driving in London (driving around London is very stressful!) I listen to classical music, that relieves the stress and helps me deal with all the crazy drivers
Stress a serious thing and is experienced differently for everyone. When I am stressed I like to go for a hike or play the piano.
I find that sometimes my go-to stress relievers don't work so sometimes the trick is to keep an open mind by trying different methods and ideas and keep track of what works vs. what doesn't.
I have a number of options, but I'm only seldom stressed. I like to sit down by a big group of trees, just lay by one as the wind blows, rustling the leaves. I'm not sure why, but it feels as if the wind just blows my troubles away. When I don't have access to that, I play video games. I especially like playing Harvest Moon
The best result, reading one of my favorite books, my "pocket friends". Playing the piano which reminds me of my grandmother. Give my hubby a massage, because he normally gives me one in return. Take a great shower while listening to music. A hot cup of tea with some lotion couldn't help.
Sounds like you have tons of healthy ways to help relieve stress. I'd have to say my favorite of your answers would be getting a massage. It sounds like you and your husband have the perfect system set up.
Meditation has been by far the best method of stress relief for me. As a person who's attention is constantly bouncing between many different things, I find it extremely beneficial to make a focused effort to calm and center my thoughts.
Even if it is as simple as focusing on my breath and quieting my mind for 10 minutes during the day, I feel SO much more relaxed afterwards. Even if you have a busy schedule it's possible to fit some self reflection in your life. You only need a couple minutes a day. Try to snag them in the shower, before you get up in the morning, before bed, or between tasks!
Okay don't laugh but I watch a Disney Movie,
It doesn't matter what it is, it just takes me back to an easier, less complicated way of living.
I really try to un- leash my inner child when I'm stressed by either watching a movie or brushing my cat,
I often doodle. If it keeps kids quiet why not adults.
Anything fun. Reading a book.
Or music as well.
I'm not embarrassed to say I like Disney movies.
It's fun to just know it calms me.
I know I'm an adult but sometimes I just want to play!
Or listen to Merry Melodies.
The reason why adults are so up- tight is they think they have to be on the phone or computer during every waking hour.
I say grab your Legos and play.
Oh and watch a Disney Movie too.
See my phone just rang and I jumped!
Gonna play with my Legos:)
Many of these suggestions for relieving stress are great, but the main thing is to FIGURE OUT THE ROOT CAUSE OF YOUR STRESS. What is the main cause? Is it work? School? Family? Friends? Noise? Why are you stressed out?
Many suggestions to relieve stress are great for a temporary fix. But it's like having a cold and getting an over-the-counter cold medicine. It doesn't solve it, or make it better or prevent it from coming back, right? So rather than mask or distract you from the stress, start understanding the underlying cause.
We suggest JOURNALING. Getting out your feelings you will begin to see a pattern and be able to witness with your own eyes WHY and WHEN you get stressed. Some people are stressed in the middle of the day during work or school. So this would be mental stress. Some have family or friend issues and the stressed is caused by harboring feelings of resentment that add up so much to the point your whole body feels stressed out because you are keeping quiet about how you really feel. By journaling, you will see the 'pattern' unfold to be able to address your stress the right way. If you are around so much noise during the day, then getting yourself to a quiet place to unwind and get away from noise - like a library or something might help.
Being able to pinpoint the triggers really helps with stress release. Much of our stress we take on is well, because we enable situations to get 'out of control' and it builds up to the point we just can't handle it. The key is to take back control of your spirit, well-being, happiness, joy, the ability to relax, because you can talk, get it out, vent, release, share - and journaling really helps with that.
Then you can get back to the activities you really enjoy and be able to truly enjoy them instead of only temporarily taking on the relaxation, only to go back to being stressed the next day.
Balance is key. Get enough sleep (we deal with stress better!); get enough water (hydration helps!); get plenty of fresh air each day and some exercise; and get enough YOU TIME... we often 'give' too much of ourselves trying to be the perfect child, the perfect friend, the perfect neighbor, sibling, co-worker, employee, student - we forget we are human and are allowed to celebrate who we are - on every level and take that self-imposed pressure off. By doing this we can relax more and honor ourselves and relieve the stress more permanently.
Rest. Relax. Be. You are amazing as you are!
I often get stressed, commonly due to financial problems or seeing others suffering. If I see others suffering, I help them out which gives me a great deal of satisfaction and calmness. When there are problems with my conditions I take a deep breath, eat something like chocolate or a scoop of ice cream or atleast drink some ice cold water, then walk for a while to stress my body and then rest for a while, like 5-10mins. I wake up wash my face with cold water and start thinking about solutions to resolve the issue I am facing.
However if you feel stressed at your work place there are some tips given in one of my articles Stress Management in Corporate Culture.

They are short, simple and easy ways to relieve your work stress...
Nice suggestions and a very nice hub, thanks for sharing. I also enjoy a small treat when I'm stressed like a piece of candy or even just a short little walk.
Make yourself a cup of tea or coffee and take yourself away to a quite place. If you are at work, during your break, find a quite place for you to sit and relax then try to understand yourself why you are so stressed. Are you taking on too much responsibility? Perhaps you could share your workload with your colleagues. If you are at home and you have a garden, get yourself a cup of tea and sit in the garden for a while. Perhaps you got so much responsibility and you are not sharing it. Try and share it with your family.
Stress comes from hectic life style as well from wrong time management.
Try to find some time for your own. Try spending half hour with kids, go around gardens and just walk around. If you can, hit the gym and do some exercise.
If you want to reduce stress or relieve stress, just change your life style a bit.
Hope this is helpful.
