How do I manage stress?
As you all know
I’ve been under a lot of stress lately
So I thought
Why not share out how do I mange my stress?
So let’s start shall we?
The first thing that I do when I’m stressed is to breathe deeply
I take long deep breaths and try to cool myself down
I find this very effective because when I’m stressed up
My nasal passages tend to block up and I need to pant
So taking deep breaths do help
Go for a walk
Sometimes you just have to let it go for awhile and just try to get your mind off things
So give yourself some time for yourself and go for a walk or something
When you come back
You’ll find that the work that needs to be done goes more smoothly
It’s almost like magic
Personally this is my favourite way of relieving stress
Maybe it’s due to because I’m a shopaholic
Try spending on something that makes you feel good
Go to a spa for a facial or something
It will make you feel less stressed out than you originally were
This is one methods that I use all the time
It is also the reason why I love Zumba so much
Exercise let’s your body release chemicals in your body called Endorphins
It is a hormone (I think) that lifts up your mood and makes you feel happier!
Exercise helps you lose weight and stay sexy!
So why not exercise?
You will be surprised at how much you can lift when you are stressed about work
I did 30kg of Bench Press once when I was really stressed
and I’m not even that strong!
I know exercise is very tiring
Do try it
Especially if you do dancing or any cardio workouts
Scream out your frustration and watch it melt away!
Listen to some music
Usually I find a good piece of instrumental music like
Kingdom Hearts – Friend in My Heart really sets the calm mood
You could also try Leaves in the Wind by Isaac Sheperd
I find music plays an important role in my life
It sets my mood most of the time
So make sure you choose songs that makes you relaxed
Play with makeup!
This is for those girls out there
Excluding me and some guys who likes makeup of course!
Just play with your make-up
You will be surprised at how therapeutic it can be!
Apply a whole face of makeup just for the heck of it
Wash it off and feel your stress wash away with it!
Play some games
If you’re stressed
Just plug in your console or start up your PC/Laptop
and just slay that B**** Warwick and Taric!
I’m referring to LoL btw
I am also a gamer
I’m not just make-up and exercise okay
I do play on my PS3 and PC most of the time when I’m free
Do not judge me so quickly!
So basically that’s what I do to relieve stress
Do let me know what do you do to relieve stress in the comments
That’s all for today folks!
