How to Relieve Stress

Posted in

Minor challenges to major crises, stresses are a part of life. You can’t always control your circumstances. However, you can control how you respond to them! Here are a few tricks on how to relieve stress.

Exercise and Get Active

Virtually any form of physical activity can act as a stress reliever. Even if you’re not an athlete or you’re out of shape, exercise can still be a good way to cut down on stress.  Exercise and other physical activity produce endorphin chemicals in the brain which will relieve stress.

Focus on Breathing

Just focusing on your breathing or changing the way you breathe can make a big difference to your overall stress level. Breathing techniques can calm your body and your brain in just a few minutes. Deep breathing is easy to learn. You can do it at any time, in any place, like this:

  • Breathe in slowly and deeply, pushing your stomach out so that your diaphragm is put to maximum use
  • Hold your breath briefly
  • Exhale slowly
  • Repeat the entire sequence until you feel unstressed!

Get a Hobby

Hobbies are a natural anti-depressant. Your brain releases a neurotransmitter called dopamine when you do something pleasurable. Hobbies can be anything from playing darts to making a scrapbook or building a puzzle. Find the hobby that’s right for you and de-stress!

Bottom Line

Keeping stress at a manageable level is important for your overall well-being. It is important that you find a stress reliever that will help you manage life’s inevitable ups and downs in a healthy way.  Now, more than ever, we need to support each other and learn how to manage stress!
