Stress Relief 101: Take Time for Yourself

Stress can make you feel overwhelmed and it can zap the joy out of activities that you once enjoyed and looked forward to. It can make you a hard person to live with and it can drive your family members away from you. But you don’t have to let stress take over your life. In fact, stress relief can be as simple as taking a little time for yourself.

The way we react to stressful situations has a lot to do with our mindset. We’ve all had days that where we just can’t handle any more and the least little thing sends us spiraling out of control. Then again, we’ve all had days where it seems like we’re on top of the world. Nothing can get us down and there isn’t anything that we can’t tackle. If you want more of the latter, simply taking time out of your hectic day for yourself is all that is needed.

Simplify Stress Relief

So many of us today are on medications that help us deal with stress. While medications can be helpful, they only work to mask the problem at hand. To enjoy true relief from stress you need to change your mindset. To do this, you need to build up your whole self and this starts with taking care of you. Here are just a few things that you can do to nurture your mind and body while at the same time relieving stress:

  • Meditate – Take a few minutes each day to relax your body. Go to a quiet room, relax your muscles, and breathe deeply. Concentrate on good thoughts only.
  • Sleep – The human body needs sleep to function at its best. Make sure that you get at least 8 hours of continuous sleep each night.
  • Eat right and exercise – Nutrition and exercise are vital for maintaining a healthy mental outlook. Avoid foods high in sugars as these can make you tired and groggy which will further hinder your stress handling abilities.
  • Say no to caffeine – Stimulants like caffeine can make it harder to stay calm through stressful situations.
  • Breaks – Make sure that you take several small breaks throughout the work day. This will help you refocus and give you a renewed energy to tackle the task at hand.
  • Keep a journal – Writing in journal will help you get negative thoughts out of your body and onto paper where they will look less reasonable. Sometimes simply writing a problem out on paper makes it seem not so bad.

As you can see, stress relief is not that difficult if you just take a little time out for yourself each day. Be sure to set aside time each day so that you can enjoy your favorite activities and let your family know that you will not be available during this time. Try it for a week. You might be surprised by how much taking as little as 30 minutes for yourself each day plays a part in stress relief.
