This article will look at Top 6 commons ways to relieve stress.
1 Spend time with family and friends
2 Learn to say NO
3 Listen to soothing music
5 Write it down
1 Spend time with family and friends: Support of any kind (be it social, financial, physical, etc) from friends and family can help you get through stressful times. A good support network of family and friends can ease your work troubles and help you see things in a different way. If you don’t connect with people, you won’t have support to turn to when you need help.
2 Learn to say NO: Take charge over the parts of your life that you can change and are causing you stress. If you find yourself taking on more than you can handle, juggling many responsibilities can leave you feeling overwhelmed. Saying NO to things that will unnecessarily add to your load, can reduce stress.
Thou, not all stressors are within your control, but some are.
3 Listen to soothing music: Listening to music can have a tremendously relaxing effect on our minds and bodies, especially slow, quiet classical music. This type of music can have a beneficial effect on our physiological functions, slowing the pulse and heart rate, lowering blood pressure, and decreasing the levels of stress hormone.
Nature sounds can also be very calming.
4 Exercises: Scientists have found that regular participation in aerobic exercise has been shown to decrease overall levels of tension, elevate and stabilize mood, improve self-esteem, etc. Even 5 minutes of aerobic exercise can stimulate anti-anxiety effects.
Jogging and Walking really helps in stress relieve.
5 Write it down: Here I mean journaling. It’s simply writing down your thoughts and feelings to understand them more clearly. It can help you gain control of your emotions and improve your mental health. TBH (To be very honest) this helps me a lot.
6 Laugh: Laughter is a natural medicine that can improve your mood, strengthen your immune system and even combat stress. It’s hard to feel anxious when you’re laughing.
Few ways it may help relieve stress:
Boosts immune system
Relaxes your muscles
