Stress getting to you? Here are ten tools you can use to help relieve stress!
#1 Take a shower.
Somehow the warm water is calming. It also helps you slow down and concentrate on one thing for a while!
#2 Take a warm bath . . .
. . . and soak for a while. Don’t plan while you soak!
#3 Take a few deep breaths . . .
. . . of the freshest air you can find.
#4 Close your eyes . . .
. . . and intentionally relax for a few seconds.
#5 Go for a brisk walk. . .
. . . or bicycle ride, if you prefer.
#6 If it’s too cold outside . . .
. . . do some type of brisk exercise indoors.
#7 Take a cat nap in a sunny spot.
Listen to relaxing classical music while you rest.
#8 Give your problems (and to do list) to God.
Don’t just tell Him about them. Hand them over and don’t take them back.
#9 Get enough sleep every night.
If you wake up only with the aid of an alarm clock (or another person) you are not getting enough sleep ~ and no wonder you are having trouble functioning!
#10 Drink some water (or some more water).
Dehydration can increase irritability and dullness (I find that I cannot handle ANYTHING when I am needing water. My family might as well just put me to bed because I am of no use!).
What works for you?
