stress RELIEVING techniques

STRESS is an ever present fact in our daily lives. The most basic tips for stress management refer to a balanced lifestyle with a wholesome diet (no processed foods), regular exercise and enough sleep. On top of that there are strategies and techniques you can learn that will help you cope better with anxiety and stress. Just keep in mind that learning to relax is a skill and like any other skill it takes time to learn it.

As everyone reacts to stress differently, there is not one universal technique that fits all. There are many different stress reduction tools and there is no right or wrong way of doing this. Some people need to be physically active to quieten their mind. The point is, everyone is different and you might have to do a bit of experimenting before you know what’s most beneficial to you. You might want to try:
– Breathing techniques
Mindfulness practices
– Walking
Yoga
Progressive muscle relaxation
– Visualisation
– Biofeedback
– Aromatherapy
– Relaxing music
– Massage therapy
– Keeping a journal
Mindful Meridian tapping
