What are some simple, practical steps we can take to relieve stress?
In today's world, we face stressful situations on a daily basis. But what simple steps can we take to deal with stress? For example, reading inspirational books helps a lot when I'm stressed.
Give a practical tip on how you cope with or relieve stress?
Exercise moderately and regularly (too much/vigorous exercise is now known to be bad for you), eat healthy foods in healthy proportions, stop smoking/don't start, and BREATHE deeply and regularly. Music that's soothing (low and slow) also helps.
Hahaha Very practical. Just be careful you don't become an alcoholic. :-) I'd hate to lose a great HP writer!
No worries. I can't afford to be an alcoholic. I have expensive tastes. :-)
Remove Yourself from the Situation, Play with the Kids, Meditation can wipe away the day's stress, bringing with it inner peace, and also Listen Devotional Songs
Deep breathing and yoga help well with stress, just take some nice deep breathes in and out and sit quietly for a few minutes. It can really help to de stress quickly
Breathing exercises, doing yoga or tai chi, even something as simple as a cup of warm tea. Some try mani/pedi's, others get their hair done. Maybe just a hot shower or warm bath. Making a special dinner or watching a movie with the one you love. A bike ride also clears my head and relieves some tension. Anything that helps calm you, your muscles, and your brain.
I would say the first thing to do is breath regularly, this releases stress, second, smile, this is also a stress releaser. After these two there are a lot of methods to escape from stress, for long term and to keep stress away. You can start from exercises (doing daily are very good for wellbeing) , affirmations what helps to keep stress away (Like I can be calm, or the Bene Geserit from Dune: I will not fear, fear is the mind killer, I will face my fear and let it pass through me and lot of this), tai chi -yoga for getting in a shape that stress is more constructive (positive stress), walking in nature- a very natural method which I like a lot, you can go to a therapist which may teach you a lot o exercises you can do to handle situations. good luck.
*get through some mild physical exercises - walking, warm ups, icebreakers.
* join a group and do this
* listening to music
* having things to look forward to.
* helping others can often take the 'I'm under pressure' thing away.
