6 Great ways to relieve stress

relieve stressStress affects every­one. Stress comes in many forms. It is also respon­si­ble for many health prob­lems. this blog post we are going to exam­ine six ways to relieve stress in your body. Many times we get caught up in the things that are hap­pen­ing in our every­day lives.
Every­day our devices throw infor­ma­tion at us. We get noti­fi­ca­tions every minute. From YouTube to twit­ter, Face­book, google plus, Insta­gram and the list goes on and on. We also get a lot of neg­a­tive infor­ma­tion through news chan­nels. There are so many avenues and dis­trac­tions that it it is easy to become over­whelmed and stressed. You have to guard your mind every day, because you are the stew­ard. you are respon­si­ble for what goes into your head. 
 
Don’t allow neg­a­tive thoughts inside your head. They attract more neg­a­tive thoughts and they end up hav­ing a par­ty inside your head leav­ing you more stressed.
 

Meditation

 
With­out a doubt, med­i­ta­tion is one of the best strate­gies for stress relief. It helps to clear your mind and fights anx­i­ety. Stress gen­er­al­ly comes from over­think­ing and not get­ting what we expect from life. One thing to rec­og­nize is that stress does not come from our envi­ron­ment. It comes from the inter­pre­ta­tion of our envi­ron­ment. This means we are respon­si­ble for our stress.
 
One man could lose an arm and be stressed out about it. Anoth­er could be thank­ing god that he had a sec­ond chance at life. It’s all about how we inter­pret stress.
 
Remem­ber that noth­ing has any mean­ing except the mean­ing that you give it. Here’s an exam­ple: if you told some­one good morn­ing and they didn’t respond you could inter­pret as if they did not respect you.
The Real­i­ty is they could be hav­ing a bad morn­ing and it had noth­ing to do with you. You Assumed it did. Many peo­ple mis­in­ter­pret sig­nals in life and respond in a neg­a­tive way. They could choose to inter­pret them in a pos­i­tive way. 
 

Exercise

 
Sci­ence proves that exer­cise can relieve stress. This is because it releas­es endor­phins into the blood­stream. Endor­phins are the feel-good hor­mone. If you feel stressed go for a walk or run and sweat it out then take a show­er. You will be sur­prised at how good you feel. Exer­cise also helps to pump blood around the body at a faster rate. This means that more oxy­gen gets to the brain. More oxy­gen means a clear­er mind.
 
When you exer­cise you can also expect a bet­ter qual­i­ty of sleep because your body becomes more relaxed. this is because exer­cise removes tox­ins from your body leav­ing you in a health­i­er state. Phys­i­cal activ­i­ty is also great because it helps you to per­form deep diaphrag­mat­ic breath­ing. This is great for your lungs and entire phys­i­ol­o­gy because it helps your body absorb more oxy­gen. It also helps to clear your mind, remov­ing your focus of neg­a­tive thoughts effec­tive­ly chang­ing your state.
 

Create family time

 
Human beings were nev­er made to be alone. We all need peo­ple to lean on. And who bet­ter to lean on than fam­i­ly. It has been proven by sci­ence that peo­ple who are more social are less stressed and have a more pos­i­tive out­look on life. Play games with your fam­i­ly and build that bond. You will be sur­prised at how good you feel.
 
You can also go out with friends who are pos­i­tive. Social­iz­ing with peo­ple who have that pos­i­tive ener­gy about them will trans­fer that pos­i­tive ener­gy to you.
 

Have a hobby

 
When we have hob­bies we have a more pos­i­tive out­look on life. Peo­ple who are cre­ative tend to be more hap­py. Find some­thing that you like doing. It could be paint­ing ‚writ­ing or cre­at­ing videos. Hob­bies pro­vide a nice break from the rou­tine of work. Research shows that peo­ple who engage in Hob­bies have low­er blood pres­sure and low­er cor­ti­sol lev­els. Cor­ti­sol  is known as the stress hor­mone. A hob­by is spend­ing time on some­thing you love.
 

Get a Massage

 
Get­ting a mas­sage is a good way to relieve stress in the body. Dur­ing every­day activ­i­ties we use our mus­cles. but after a while ten­sion builds up in the body. Your mus­cles may even devel­op knots espe­cial­ly if you a sit­ting at a desk all day. What a mas­sage does is help to free up the ten­sion in your mus­cles that build up and cause you to feel stressed. Accord­ing to web­MD mas­sages can help to ease headaches back pain, to relieve ten­sion and helps you relax.
 

relieve stress with yoga

 
Yoga helps reduce cor­ti­sol lev­els. It com­bines phys­i­cal pos­es, breath­ing and med­i­ta­tion to reduce stress and relieve ten­sion. It is great because it involves the use of our diaphragm in exer­cis­es.
Accord­ing to active.com stress floods your body with cor­ti­sol also known as the stress hor­mone. Deep breath­ing exer­cis­es in yoga also called pranaya­ma yoga, relieves stress by low­er­ing cor­ti­sol lev­els.
 
I rec­om­mend yoga for piece of mind. If you suf­fer from anx­i­ety and you find your­self wor­ry­ing a lot this is a good way to free up some of your men­tal RAM and clear your head. It is not healthy to stay stressed for extend­ed peri­ods. Stress can raise your blood pres­sure and has oth­er neg­a­tive effects on your health.
 

Stress can be good

 
Believe it or not stress can actu­al­ly be good for you. Imag­ine what life would be like if you had noth­ing to chal­lenge you? how would you grow and devel­op? the prob­lem is that stress can become over­whelm­ing if you don’t find an avenue of release. It may be a good idea to devel­op some form of stress relief sched­ule. You can also incor­po­rate some or even all these tips into your life and watch as you become a more stress free per­son.
 
Life is short, so don’t waste it on stress and anx­i­ety whether about the past or the future. You have no effect on that espe­cial­ly the past. what you can do is live in the NOW and focus on one thing at a time (Mul­ti­task­ing is Over Rat­ed). After all you are more effec­tive that way. Any­way let me know what you think. Do you have any more tips to relieve stress? I’m sure I missed a few. Leave a com­ment below and until next post peace.
