With the holidays over, and the start of a brand new year, stress worries should be over, right? Oh how I wish that were true. The funny thing about stress, no matter what, it always seems to sneak up on us. It feels as if it’s always welcome. Don’t you wish we had a little button we could just magically click to turn stress off? That would be lovely. While we may not have a programmable on/off switch, here are 10 ways to help you reduce stress.
10 Ways to Reduce Stress
1. Exercise: There is nothing like a good workout. Not only is it healthy, it makes you feel good! I have been receiving physical therapy three times per week, since this past June. One of my sessions is on land, while the other two are in the water. It is HARD work. But you know what? It makes me feel good inside. And, it’s making my body stronger. Win win!
2. Use Essential Oils: Certain scents like lavender are great for reducing stress levels. Add a few drops to a diffuser, and discover the benefits of aromatherapy.
3. Sunlight: Oh for the love of Vitamin D. Our bodies crave it! There is nothing like some natural sunlight to pick up your mood.
