Summer is finally here. We have been waiting all year for it. It gets here, and the stress has just built up too much – and it just keeps on going. You are here for some pointers on how to survive the following weeks without having a rage fit, so lets jump right into it. These stress busters are here to help; take a deep breath and start reading!
Make a list
Write down a list of what you need to do before you leave. As soon as something comes to your mind, just jot it on a piece of paper. This will take your brain off unnecessary stuff that you have to do.
Every time you feel like everything is too much, take a deep breath and then exhale. Each step should take about 5 seconds each. Take your time, then act.
Turn Off the Phone
When you can’t get to sleep because of social media, just shut it all off before heading to sleep.
When you have worked hard during the week, reward yourself with a special treat. It can be anything you feel like you deserve but you would not usually get.
Vent with Someone
Without anger! Call a friend when you need someone to talk to, and hear out what they have to say about it.
Give Yourself a Self Massage
Apply pressure to parts of your body (for example the union valley, located your hand) and enjoy the moment of happiness that you are giving yourself.
Don’t Get Angry
Whatever happens, just pause for a second before venting out your anger. Do not lash out, as anger only builds up and adds to more stress.
Watch a comedy show to laugh the stress off. Smiling is one of the best ways to relieve stress.
Lie on the carpet and stretch out your muscles. Tight muscles and low flexibility are a clear indicator of stress.
Music to Relax
Play some relaxing tunes and lie down enjoying the moment. Prepare some cold iced tea to go with it.
Hope you enjoyed this small list of stress relief techniques. Use them before heading for your holidays, and have fun this summer!
