3 Ways To Beat Your Stress

 


1. Journal, Journal, Journal!

Identify your stress points and write about them in a journal. Your journal doesn’t have to be fancy – the ritual of putting the pen to paper transfers all that mental energy out of your mind and parks it so that you can let it all go. To gain perspective, as you read each entry, ask yourself, “Will this bother me in one year? Five years?”

2. Get Moving!

Find a way to spend at least 30 minutes in motion today. Don’t panic! You can even break it up into three separate 10-minute sections! Be kind to yourself – if it has been too long since you took the time to exercise, feel free to start slow with a gentle walk. Exercise can be a great way of releasing pent up energy that can keep you anxious and tense.

3. Practice Mindful Meditation

It’s all too easy to get caught up in the hectic pace of life. Practicing mindfulness can help focus your thoughts and actions on being fully present in the moment and curb panic by not allowing your mind to race. Being mindful can have positive mental and physical benefits, helping to reduce worry and stress, encourage better sleep, and improve wellbeing. And who doesn’t want that?
