7 Tips for Stress Management

7 tips of stress management

1. Exercise Regularly: Working out regularly is one of the best ways to relax your body and mind. Exercise reduces stress and improves your mood, but you have to do it often for it to pay off.

2. Ease Up: When you are stressed, your muscles get tensed up. You can help loosen them up on your own and refresh your body by stretching, enjoying a massage, taking a hot bath or shower, or probably getting a good night’s sleep.

3. Practice Deep Breathing: Stopping and taking a few deep breaths can take the pressure off you right away. You will be surprised how much better you get good at it. Sit down quietly, close your eyes, and slowly take deep breaths in and out. Do this for 5 to 10 minutes.

4. Eat Well: Eating a regular well-balanced diet will help you feel better. Your meals should be full of vegetables, fruit, whole grains for energy, and lean protein.

5. Take A Break: Modern life is so busy, and sometimes we just need to slow down and chill out! Break down big jobs into simple ones; set your watch 5 to 10 minutes ahead. That way you will get to places a little early and avoid the stress of being late. You need to plan on some real downtime to give your mind time off from stress. You can spend that time doing Yoga, Tai Chi, or listening to your favorite music.
