Hello everyone, I hope you all are having a great day! As we all know, stress is something that most of us experience in our day-to-day lives. It can be from school, work, lack of sleep, or anything else. In this post, I am sharing with you all ten activities that help relieve stress. If you are interested in learning what ways could help you, keep reading!
Take 10 ten minutes or more out of your day to journal.
This can be writing down your thoughts, self-reflection, free writing, or planning your day.
Writing helps you clear your mind, recover memories, and it is a good mental exercise.
Take some time to work out your body.
This doesn't have to be strenuous activities.
It can be a simple exercise such as walking or going for a light jog.
Anything that keeps your body moving.
3) Read a Book
Having a good book to read when stressed helps strengthen your brain.
Reading improves brain function and connectivity.
Reading fiction books improves your imagination.
It's always nice to read a book and escape reality. This is my go-to!
4) Listen to Music
Listening to music can help calm your nervous system.
Music is an emotional release, creates creativity, and decreases anxiety.
I recommend making a dedicated playlist when you feel stressed.
Did you know they make adult coloring books?
Doodling or coloring in a notebook can help you relax and helps you be mindful.
Also, coloring as an adult brings out your imagination and helps you remember your childhood.
Bake a delicious treat!
When people feel anxious they'll look for something to do (to get their minds off) and baking helps people with this.
Baking helps you be engaged and keeps your mind away from negative thoughts.
7) Create a Vision Board
This is a great way to gain inspiration and motivation!
It increases clarity and focus.
It's also a great way for you to help reach your goals.
8) Watch a Funny Show or Movie
Watching your favorite TV show or movie, helps you take your mind off things that may be bothering you or preventing you from focusing.
9) Do Some Self-Care
Take a shower or bath, nap, light a candle, relax, detox your mind, go outside and breathe some fresh air, or drink some herbal tea.
Take care of YOU!
10) Reach out to a Friend or Loved One
Sometimes just talking to someone makes the situation a lot better.
It feels like a major relief off your shoulders.
Thank you all very much for reading this post! I hope this post gives you ideas on ways you can relieve stress at home. I also hope this encourages you to take care of yourself and focus on yourself. Stay tuned for new blog posts coming soon and I cannot wait to share them with you all!
