Stressed?

Posted on April 6, 2010 in Uncategorized by

If you hate being stressed but think there is nothing you can do about it then think again. There’s loads you can do and here’s just a few of them 🙂

# Go for a walk : Getting some fresh air does everyone some good, try taking a walk in unfamiliar surroundings as new routes insure you don’t get bored.
# Sleep : Make sure you get at least 8 hours of sleep a night.
# Ditch the sugar : Sugar, caffeine and alcohol have all been known to raise stress levels.
# Make a list : Most people become stressed when they have too much on their mind, so try making a list on a piece of paper of all the things you have to do. At night keep a piece of paper on your bedside table and when something pops into your head just write it down and then you can deal with it in the morning.
# Meditate : Find somewhere quiet and take a few minutes for yourself. Try to relax and concentrate on your breathing taking in long deep breaths..this always helps.
# Talk : A problem shared is a problem halved. If there is something on your mind don’t be afraid to talk it through with someone close. Getting the opinion from an outsider can put things into a whole new perspective
# Eat right : When people are worried they either over eat or stop eating all together. But making sure you eat a healthy diet with lots of fruit and veg can make you feel better in no time.
# Get quizzing : It’s been known that not only do puzzles such as Sudoku help improve brain function but also help to calm us.
# Music : Steer clear of sad songs on your ipod and turn on the cheese. Turn up the volume and have a good boogy around your living room.
# Let go of the past : It’s called the past for a reason. Try not to hang onto anything and just let it go. You’re not going to get anywhere by holding onto it.

Hope this helps 🙂
