Stress can affect us in physical, mental, emotional, and behavioral ways. Everyone deals with some amount of stress on a daily basis. It is vital to relieve your body of this stress before it causes more serious problems. Here are some simple stress relieving techniques you can try.
This is a technique you can use virtually anywhere, and better still, it doesn't cost you a dime. You simply inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth.
This doesn't particularly mean exercise. Anything that requires some physical movement can burn off stress. So try a walk, clean the house, dance, exercise, or whatever you can think of to get yourself moving.
If you have a hobby that you find relaxing, then spend some time doing it. Whether you enjoy gardening, dancing, reading, or cooking, let yourself become absorbed by that hobby. When you are pulled back to reality again, you will feel more calm and less stressed.
Anyone, male or female, can benefit from a warm, candlelit bath. So clear away your spouse, your kids, even your dog, turn down the lights, and indulge yourself in a nice long warm bath.
Often stress is caused by work- a big project that's due, that irritating co-worker, or the boss that expects too much. If you want to keep your job, odds are telling that person where to stick that project isn't a good idea. But, expressing your feelings is a good way to relieve stress, and what better way to do that than in a journal?
Stress can take quite a toll on your physical, mental, emotional, and behavioral health. If you could reduce your level of stress, you would lead a healthier, happier life.
