How you handle stress makes a big difference in how you feel. It might even help your blood pressure, blood sugar level, and the rest of you, your body and your mind as well. Use these strategies to stop stress as early as possible and don’t let it ruin your life.
Go on Vacation Alone
Spending time outdoors, even close to your home, is very much linked to better well-being. When you are in hands of nature, and relaxing watching butterflies and also like walking on green grass nothing can beat that amazing feeling! Even a few minutes can make a difference in how you feel.
Smile! You are Beautiful:) even if you are not on Camera
Just smile! It really decrease your actual stress levels. especially a genuine smile that’s formed by the muscles around your eyes as well as your mouth – reduces your body’s stress responses, even if you don’t feel happy. Smiling also helps lower heart rates faster once your stressful situation ends.
Smell Some Roses and lavender!
Certain scents like roses may soothe. In one study, nurses who pinned small vials of lavender oil to their clothes felt their stress ease, while nurses who didn’t felt more stressed. Lavender may affect some painkillers and anti-anxiety medications, so if you’re taking either, check with your doctor before use.
Are you into a stressful situation? Music can help you relax. In one study, people had lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol when they listened to a recording of Latin choral music before doing something stressful (like doing math out loud or giving a speech) than when they listened to a recording of sweet sound water.
Be Kind to Yourself
We all have a constant stream of thoughts running through our heads, and we always have some feeling of guilt,anger and sadness. But Staying positive and doing self-talk will help you calm down and get a better grip on the situation. Talk to yourself in the same gentle, encouraging way you’d help a friend in need. “Everything will be OK,” for instance, or “I’ll figure out how to handle this.”
Write write and write!
Writing down your thoughts can be a great emotional outlet. Once they’re on paper, you can start working out a plan to resolve them. It doesn’t matter whether you prefer pen and notebook, a phone app, or a file on your laptop. The important thing is that you’re honest about your feelings.
Make Your Breathing Stronger!
Feeling less stressed is as close as your next breath. Focusing on your breath curbs your body’s “fight or flight” reaction to pressure or fear, and it pulls your attention away from negative thoughts. Sit comfortably in a quiet place. Breathe in slowly through your nose, letting your chest and lower belly rise and your abdomen expand. Breathe out just as slowly, repeating a word or phrase that helps you relax. To reap the most benefit, repeat for at least 10 minutes.
