Reducing Your Stress Naturally

By Donna Stark

There are a lot of things that can bring a fair amount of stress into your life. Things like relationships, finances, your career, and even your wonderful children, but when you actually start to get on your very own nerves, you know your stress level has finally hit the roof. It is during times like these that you need to take action because, in addition to impacting your days, stress can significantly affect your health, especially if it lasts for a while.

Reducing Your Stress Naturally

Whether the stress in your life lasts for only a few hours or stays with you for weeks, it's important to address it right away. Chronic stress can lead to significant and serious health issues, and may require some help to manage. But for those temporary moments of stress and anxiety, here are some easy ways to bring moments of peace into your day. Take a look.

  • Exercise - Dealing with a stressful situation at work or with your children? The best thing you can do is to remove yourself for 10 minutes and go for a walk. Exercise increases the production of your body's endorphins which help to decrease stress and anxiety, so make sure you are exercising at least 30 minutes a day. It really helps!
  • Spend time with your pet - Whether you are a cat lover or prefer man's best friend, hanging out with your pet can definitely calm your nerves! Pets are a wonderful distraction to life and certainly have a way of relieving our stress and providing us comfort, don't they? And if you have a dog, you can get an extra dose of stress relief by taking it for a walk!
  • Listen to music - Music can often have a profound effect on us, especially when we need to relax. So take a moment to sit in a quiet room, turn the lights off, and play the music that you know your body will respond to. And by all means, if nature sounds impact you more, play those instead!
  • Talk it out - Talking about what you are feeling is a great way to encourage that bottled-up stress to leave your body. In other words, go ahead and vent! Being open to the support that a friend or family member offers can help you manage your stress and anxiety on a completely different level.
