3 Tips for Easing Daily Stress

By Genevieve Cunningham

Stress is a part of life, and while it's normal and expected, it's also incredibly draining. Too much stress can lead to a serious decline in health with problems such as high blood pressure, headaches, and heightened risk of various diseases. And of course, excessive stress is hard on mental and emotional health as well. But since it's a part of life, there's nothing we can do about it, right? Though it can be difficult, lowering stress is possible … as long as you have the tools you need to make it happen. If you're ready to improve your health and feel your best, take a look at these tips for lowering stress every day.

Go for Daily Walks

Walking is good for the body, but that's not all. Regular walks can also lower stress and improve mental well-being. And if you take your walk outdoors, where the fresh air and sunshine are abundant, you'll be giving your stress a double whammy. Research shows that regular walks, especially in nature, help to reduce stress and improve health. Add a walk to your evening routine, and you may find your health and wellness improve like never before.


It's OK to prioritize your life. Some things really are more important than others, and it's OK to treat them that way. Making certain things priority over others can significantly reduce your stress. You’ll have fewer things to worry about, and less anxiety about getting everything done. Instead, you can focus on just a few important things at a time, and then leave the rest for another time.

Wind Down

Too many people skip this step at the end of the day. Winding down plays a huge role in keeping stress levels down. When you don't take the time to wind down, you take all of the stress of the day straight to bed with you. This can cause poor sleep, which then compounds on your stress. Every person's wind-down routine will look different and will be as individual as the person. Find a routine that works for you, and carry it out each night to help you relax and destress.

Too much stress is not something that you have to live with. Make lowering stress levels a priority in your life, as it can only improve your health and life. Use these tips to help you get started, and you may feel less stressed and more refreshed before you know it.
