Tips for stress management

Stress makes us feel terrible. Right? Here is a list of tips for stress management that we can practice easily to reduce stress in our daily lives.

1. Do something new each week.

You can try to begin each day differently by having an awesome breakfast one day, going to swimming the other day. You can also use different routes to go to work. On your leisure time, try to visit new places like new parks, villages, restaurants, etc. These activities bring in new experiences and help you keep your life fun and interesting.

2. Try new activities

You can start learning to play a music instrument, pursuing a fitness plan, enrolling for a study program. These programs can be foreign language courses or new sportive courses like tennis. All of these activities helps you reduce stress.

3. Avoid negative thoughts

This is probably the main cause of stress. You should stop complaining about past misfortunes. These negative thoughts triggers anxiety and depression. There is a very powerful tip to help you do with this. Allocate a minimum 15 minutes of time (30 mins. is the best) for yourself to relax. At that period of time, pause all the work you have been doing and forget about all the problems. This is going to be your time not theirs.

4. Listen to music

Music is a great tool for relaxation. In your time of the day (remember 3rd tip) you can listen to music at your time of the day, for example.Pick an easy-going music and enjoy being in the moment. Make sure to avoid heavy or profound music that may remind sadness and unhappy memories. Our goal is not that…

5. Don’t assault yourself (self depreciation)

Talking to yourself in a harmful manner also hugely contributes to high levels of stress. This attitude may be very destructive. It reduces self esteem and self confidence and constitutes a major part of stress, anxiety and depression. You should agree to never call yourself an idiot, a fool or something worse.  These terms will hurt you for sure because they are strong emotional terms. You should accept that everybody makes mistakes and it is a part of life. So, be kind and do not depreciate yourself.

6. Smile

When you smile, your face muscles relax and a signal which will make you happy is immediately sent to your brain. Don’t wait for the time or opportunity. Just smile!

7. Meditate

Meditation helps you calm down your nerves and connect with your real nature, helping you staying grounded.

8. Exercise

Exercising draws the blood and energy from your brain and brings it to your body and legs, relieving your brain and energizing your body. Thus, you feel good and the result is happiness.

9. Be grateful

If you think about the things you do not have, you will be stressed out. Just try to focus on things that some others do not have and you are grateful. You will see the difference and feel better.

10. Eat healthy

Junk foods like refined flour and sugar drain off vital nutrients from our body and exhaust our energy. Try to eat more vegetables, fruits and fresh foods.

11. Distract yourself

Simple distraction like getting involved in a game or fun activity can make difference.

12. Breath right

If you try to take slow, deep breaths whenever you are stressed, you will feel better in minutes.

13. Right posture

If you are a stressed person, you probably have a curved spine. That’s why your lungs cannot expand fully and they work less than 30% of their full capacity. So you feel tired because of less energy. You should try to keep your spine straight and relaxed.

14. Get a massage

A weekly oil massage can work wonders in releasing stress and improving your well-being.

15. Spend time with happy people

Depressed and stressed people make you more stressed. So try to be with happy people. They will make you happy, too.
