7 Simple Tips To Reduce Your STRESS Right Now
1. running, wine, dogs
:Running (with no GPS watch and with great music), wine, and walking my dogs!
2. tea & conversation
For me, a nice cup of tea (typical Brit!) and a chat to a loved one — either face to face or on the phone — works wonders. Speaking to those who know me the best and love me the most helps me to put things in perspective!
3. the woods
Sara Stahlman: For me, it's the woods, the water — the outdoors. No matter how upset or anxious I'm feeling, when I sense the breeze or sunshine on my face, it always helps calm me.
4. sweat, cook, drink wine
Anything to get my mind off whatever is stressing me out, especially a great workout or whipping up a delicious meal in the kitchen. If all else fails, grab a big glass of wine!
5. doing something fun!
Meredith T:I like to reduce stress by doing something FUN, whether that's finding a dog to play with, or curling up with warm tea and a good book. I also find that yoga always leaves me feeling stress-free!
6. guided meditation
:I LOVE listening to guided meditation podcasts (like Meditation Oasis on iTunes) to help me focus on my breathing rather than whatever stressful event is going on in my life. And of course, I love cuddling with my happy dog since she is my bestest bud! Not only is it fun and rewarding, but petting an animal has been shown to reduce blood pressure and relieve anxiety.
My go-to stress reducer is definitely running. Even on days when I feel too stressed out to go for a run, once I get back I feel so much better, like all is right with the world again.
