It's easy to get stressed out over work, school, busy schedules and/or personal problems. Thankfully, relief is not hard to find. Here are some tried and proven ways to de-stress that can help you regain your peace of mind in a jiffy.
Take a deep breath, then slowly exhale. Do this a few times and you'll find yourself feeling more relaxed and at peace with life.
Keep relaxing books on hand and grab something to read for a few minutes in order to take your mind off your problems. Some people find reading a joke or two from a joke book does the trick. Others relax best when reading a poem while still others find that a comic or two decreases stress in their lives.
Taking a few minutes to stretch, do a few jumping jacks, run in place or even just walk to the water cooler can do wonders to alleviate the stress you may be feeling at the moment.
Enjoy Great Smells
Scents can have a significant impact on your mood. Keep something that smells good on your desk or even in your pocket and pull it out when you need to chill for a few minutes. Some of the many relaxing scents you can pick from include orange, vanilla and chamomile.
A healthy snack can help reduce stress and give you the energy needed to tackle challenging situations. Some good options to consider are a piece of fruit, cut vegetable sticks, whole wheat crackers with peanut butter and nuts.
