5 Quick Tips to kick that nasty stress butt!
My life has been stressful lately, as has most of the entire worlds, so I thought I would share some tips on how to beat it. And don’t roll your eyes! I can hear you saying “easier said than done” from here 😝
Here are 5 things to help keep your stress under control:
💫Sleep more. It’s very common in our society to operate on less than 6 hours of sleep a night. But experts recommend around 8 hours of sleep per night. Not just to rest our bodies, but to rejuvenate our minds. Sleeping is the time for our bodies to not just rest, but heal. Finding the amount that works best for you is key 🔑
💫Turn it off. The convenience that mobiles add to our lives can actually be a double-edged sword. We depend on them so much it seems we can’t live without them. (Remember the blackout? That was a key sign of this!) Our minds are constantly filled with news, social media, emails, etc. that it is nearly impossible for us to operate without all of it. So set a limit on your social media apps on your phone and put your phone down at least 30 minutes before bed.
💫Take a holiday. It doesn’t have to be a fancy vacation resort. A day at the beach, or a walk at the local park will do. Go anywhere you can be and not think about the bills, work, or whatever stress you may have. It’s important to take time for yourself, so do it! You cannot give what you do not have ✨
💫 Breathe. Yes this is a tip that is on any list to beat stress, tension, fear, depression. And you have heard me say it before. That is because that’s how valuable it truly is!
I am currently housesitting for a friend. This is always a holiday for me and always time for me to clear my mind and try to get some relaxation in.
Combine all the above and you will find yourself better able to manage those things that crop up and cause you to say WTF.
Do you have things you like to do that aren’t on this very minor list?
