While none of us wants to stress, there are countless things to stress about these days. It seems like when one problem gets solved, another quickly pops up, doesn’t it?
Whether you stress about finances, your job, a disease, love life or something completely different …sometimes it feels like this stress simply won`t stop! Sounds familiar?
It is important to note that regardless of the source, stress is stress. No matter whether it is caused by what you see or hear, it still affects you and your well-being.
6 WAYS TO DEAL WITH STRESS NATURALLY
1. Keep Your Mind on One Thing
Interestingly, an average adult has about ,000-70,000 thoughts daily. Taking this into consideration, it becomes obvious that the brain is an amazing organ!
To deal with stress or to avoid it in the first place, focus on one thing at a time. Ignore the garbage you don’t currently need. Including new hosts and new anchors.
2. Do Things You Enjoy
As cliché as it seems, life is too short! And, it cannot and it shouldn’t be serious all the time. Getting rid of negativity seems difficult, but you can simplify it by doing the things you love. Maybe it is reading, painting, computer games, writing, or meditation…
3. Talk to People
Try to find the time to visit your friends and family members. Go out together, share a meal, or simply sit around and talk. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you should limit yourself to friends and family only. Join a group that fits your passions and hang out to people like you.
4. Stay Healthy
Staying healthy something that everyone has to make a priority! Here is what you need for basic health:
- Eat 3-5 healthy meals daily
- Cut on nicotine and alcohol
- Drink at least six, 6-oz glasses of water daily
- Get 30+ minutes of moderate exercise daily
- Practice diaphragmic breathing or mindfulness meditation
It`s so simple, isn’t it?
5. Limit Your News Exposure
As a matter of fact, what you need to do is to limit your TV time. Although it is relaxing for an hour or two, spending too much time in front of the TV is a waste of brainpower.
If nothing more, at least limit the time spend watching the news. Instead, scan the headlines on Google News, Reuters, or your local paper.
6. Make a Difference
“Be the change you wish to see in the world,” Mahatma Gandhi once said. Just think of the difference if everyone devoted only 10% of their time dedicated to entertainment and news and did something for the greater good.
Although everyone wants to make the world a better place, the majority of us are spectators, not participants.
You’re being the change.
