Helpful Tips to Reduce Stress Daily

Stress does not make us feel good and of course the effects of stress can be absolutely debilitating. In fact, millions of people land up with all sorts of symptoms and ailments like headaches, migraines, muscle spasm, sleeping problems, getting upset easy and it even hurts your immune system. When you have chronic stress your body’s ability to regulate the inflammatory response is compromised, which can lead to disease. Its not always easy to guide everything that happens in your life on a daily basis, but here are some suggestions to help relieve your daily tensions so that they don’t build up.

1. Take a walk outside.

Whatever you’re doing, wherever you are, leave the space you’re in and take a walk. Get some fresh air if you can. A short break from your current environment and possibly some fresh air and sunlight can be just enough to change your point of view and give you a new perspective.

2. Act of Kindness to others.

Volunteering has been shown to relieve stress. It makes you feel good as well as make someone else feel good. Studies show this really works. Try it.

3. Move your Body and burn off some steam.

Exercise! Running, yoga, lifting weights, and playing sports are all great ways to get your mind off of the things that you find stressful and do something healthy for your mind and body. Exercise decreases stress hormones and increases endorphins, which are often referred to as the body’s “feel-good chemicals.” Physical activity releases endorphins and can help boost your mood and energy.

4. Express your frustration in writing

Sometimes its good to make a list of all the things that are bothering you.
Read it through, correct it until it sounds exactly what you mean and then tear it up and throw it away. Its often a great way to get rid of negative feelings.

5. Take a few DEEP breaths.

Breathe in and out from your abdomen, regular breaths, deep breaths, fill up your lungs and allow your autonomic nervous system to regulate itself with no for effort from you, other than to take regular deep breaths. This is a very effective way of calming your mind.
