5 Great Ways to Reduce Stress

Here are some simple ways to deal with stress and anxiety

We live in an incredibly hectic and complex world. We find ourselves strapped into 50-hour work weeks with ever increasing productivity demands. Stress levels in our lives are nearly off the charts. There are activities to do with family, work emails that demand attention all day long and household chores that never seem to get done. Sound familiar? If so, it’s important to make time to reduce your stress levels and nurture your mind and body.

Save Time and Effort Wherever You Can

When you are super stressed it’s important to simplify your life wherever you can. Instead of going shopping several times a week, plan one trip to one store and get everything there. Set aside a half a day on the weekend and do all the prep work for your weekly meals and evening dinners will come together with ease during the week. It makes things easier if you can take care of appointments over the internet instead of having to drive across town. If you live in Missouri and you want to get your medical marijuana card you can do everything you need to online. It’s only $139 for an evaluation and you can get the required forms and apply for your card, all from the comfort of home. If you want to book a hair appointment, do it via Facebook or give the salon a call. Saving time and effort by leveraging technology will give you back so many hours of your precious time.

Listen to Guided Meditations

Guided meditations can take you out of your demanding world and into a realm where things are relaxing, calm and pleasant. Even a 10-minute meditation break can help you detach from the pressures of the day and float into a more soothing and serene scene. There are meditation apps and lots of options to choose from. If you find your mind wandering during the meditation, it’s helpful to choose a selection with guided imagery. As the narrator takes you into a scene, you’ll imagine being there and your mind will be where it should be.

Go Camping

One of the best ways to de-stress from a hectic week is to go camping on the weekend. It doesn’t take much to throw a tent in the car, grab some sleeping bags and head off to your favorite relaxing spot in nature. You can enjoy the beauty of a river or lake, or go into the mountains for some alpine reverie. The rhythms of nature are beautifully soothing to our body, mind and soul. Things are simpler. You wake up with the sound of bird songs and the sun gently peeking over the horizon. The world is free of deadlines and you simply get to relax. Sounds like bliss, right?
