Stress Relief Tips

With how busy we keep ourselves on a day to day basis, it's no wonder that so many of us suffer from stress. Stress is something that is almost impossible to avoid, because of the way that we are wired. With that said though stress can be easily dealt with in many ways.

Exercise - Exercise always pops into articles like this: That's because it's important. Exercise has the ability to relax both your mind and your body. One of the big advantages that exercise has is that it forces you to get out, and to maintain some balance. If your working a lot, and are having a hard time getting other things done in life, you can easily make a deal with yourself to get out for a walk everyday at lunch time. This will allow you to clear your head and be more focused in your work, and also it will allow you time to relax, spend some time with nature, and remember that a physical wellness has a huge impact on mental wellness

Reward - Reward yourself. Too often we get into patterns where we work too much, sleep to little, and run our body into the ground. Take breaks daily, weekly, monthly. Get up during the day from your work, and get in a walk. Take a weekend get away to freshen up your mind from your work. Take a yearly trip to experience something different from the 9-5 grind back home. I understand that not all of these things are capable but they are all possible in moderation and with:

Balance - Living a balanced life is very important to maintain limited stress. Balance doesn't mean trying to do too many things at once. Balance means not living all work and no play. Balance your life with work, family, friends, exercise, hobbies, etc.

Values - Take a moment to think about the things that are the most important for you in your life. Often times when we are living off the wall and not by our values there is an increase of stress in our days.

Planning - Who ever said "fail to plan, plan to fail" was on the ball. There is also an element of stress in unplanned situations. Unknowns cause us to worry, and to get stressed out about situations that we could have taken a little time to plan ahead for seems silly - doesn't it?
