Relax. 12 Simple tips to reduce stress
These days we are living we will never forget them. Which is not to say that they are unforgettable days. Everything we see around us seems to take from a low-budget movie or a Z-series pop song.
We all expected a future with surprises and news, but now we only need Gozdilla to appear in an ultra low cost costume, coming out of the sea.
Given this scenario, we thought we’d give you some simple advices to relieve all the stress we all have in these twelve simple tips to relax and reduce stress
1- Listen to the music
Listening to music has a relaxing effect on body and soul.
Music helps to reduce blood pressure and heart rate, as well as stress hormones. Right now, Burt Bacharach with Make it easy on yourself is working his magic.
Spend time with family and pets
These days it is true that it is the number one activity for all us. And all us together will help each other through these difficult times. We’ll have time to go out for cigarettes when all this is over. And our pets are one of the few excuses to go out on the streets in compliance with the law.
It’s hard to feel anxiety when you laugh. It’s good for your health and for everyone’s morale.
To increase physical contact
Let there be joy here too.Touching, hugging or kissing reduce stress by releasing oxytocin and lowering blood pressure.
Get some exercise
Subjecting the body to slight physical stress through exercise can relieve mental stress. A little means a moderate level. Vigorexia does a lot of harm.
Reduce caffeine intake
Caffeine is a stimulant found in coffee, tea, chocolate. More than four cups a day only increases your anxiety. And it doesn’t solve anything. Unless you have to stay awake for it.
Once you write something, whether it’s a task or a thought, you can forget about it. You are a prisoner of the notebook or paper where you have written it. Not in your head. And that free space can be occupied by other activities that are much more fun and motivating.
Light a candle
A candle or scented oils can help reduce the feeling of stress or anxiety. Some aromas that are very relaxing might be:
– Roman chamomile
– orange blossom
To me particularly looking at a lava lamp gives me a similar feeling.
As a quick and easy stress reliever, try chewing gum. Chewing gum causes brain waves like those of relaxed people. Besides, the action of biting is quite relaxing.
Learn to say no
We all tend to say yes to everything. And that’s not good for us in the long run. We have to be selective about what we accept, and say no to things that bring us nothing good, except stress.
Learn to avoid delaying the important things
We have to focus on what needs to do and give ourselves the time to do it. Making a written list of things to do (and crossing it off when done) will save us a lot of unnecessary stress
The goal of deep breathing is to align your consciousness with your breath as much as possible, making it slower and deeper. And at the same time it slows your heart rate, calming you down.
And finally, we can not fail to recommend you some good models of Beatnik, with all this tremendous context are the best possible regard of this time.
