Stressed? Try One of These 7 Simple Stress Busters


Stress ReliefLet's face it, we all experience some level of stress in our lives. Stress can shorten our lives, ruins relationships and may cause us to make unwise and unhealthy decisions because our rational thinking is compromised due to the stress we are experiencing in our lives. If you are frequently exposed to stressful situations in your life, I suggest giving these 7 simple stress busters a try.

7 Simple Stress Relievers

  1. Meditation – Any type of meditation will help you tune out the outside world and redirect your focus to your inner world. Here's a sample of a meditation that is excellent for stress – 
  2. Get Some Fresh Air – Spending time outside in nature is a wonderful way of staying present as you connect to the elements. When we are present in the moment, we aren't as focused on our past and future worries. Enjoying the great outdoors helps us to ground and center as we breathe in fresh air and soak up the wonderful sounds, textures and fragrances of our environment.
  3. Exercise – Get your body moving whether it is with yoga, martial arts, dance, biking or whatever activity gets your body going and your blood pumping to release those healthy endorphins.
  4. Unplug Yourself – Take a break from social media for 24 hours. If we were to calculate how much time we waste by checking in with social media, reading our emails and watching television, we would be shocked. Not only are these activities a giant time drain, but being around electronics 24/7 is unhealthy for our bodies. The electromagnetic smog does build up and often causes headaches and disrupts our nervous system.
  5. TLC – A massage, Reiki treatment, reflexology or any type of modality where you receive the royal treatment is so good for the mind, body and spirit. If money is a factor, you can always see if you can barter with someone you know and trust. I suggest scheduling TLC sessions at least twice a month. I like to view my TLC sessions as rewards for my hard work.
  6. Change the Scenery. Taking a road trip to somewhere new will change your day to day scenery. This will bring in different stimuli to your senses and I guarantee your senses will thank you for it!
  7. Turn Up The Music – Listening, singing and dancing to your favorite song, singer or band is an excellent stress reliever. Automatically you will feel your spirits lift and shift your mind set as you connect with music. Music/sound is quick and easy and brings us to our happy place.

These 7 stress busters will not make your problems or challenges disappear but they will help you move into a different healthier mind set, which often is all that is needed to cope with the day to day stressors of life.

Blessings and Light,
