Everyone can agree stress rules our lives. Whether it is work, children or school, it’s something you can get away from. Here are some tips to combat and relax.
Meditation– There are many websites like http://www.calm.com that provide free guided meditations for anyone to use!
Watch some TV-Despite sounding basic, distractions are a super useful tool to combat stress, so turn on some comedy shows and relax.
Exercise it out– It doesn’t matter what type of exercise… it can be running, biking, walking or dancing! Exercising releases endorphins which relax you.
Color– coloring books are not just for children anymore, adult coloring books are more delicate and beautiful, and can be found almost anywhere!
Read– Read your favorite book when you are feeling stressed and instantly be transported to a different universe
Go outside– Fresh air and the sights and sounds of nature can help you destress and get some vitamin D
Sleep– Not getting enough sleep leads to being even more stressed out. Adults should get at least 7 hours of sleep each night.
