Practice Mindfulness + Meditation:
Mindfulness is all about stepping back and truly observing how and what we are feeling in the moment.
When it comes to dealing with stress, you need to accept and understand what’s happening and why.
Practicing mindfulness can help you get to that realization. The next time you catch yourself feeling stressed, ask yourself the following…
What am I feeling right now? Why am I feeling this way? How can I move past this?
We can’t always prevent or predict stress. But there are several techniques and tools out there that can help us embrace and accept it.
Set Up A Relaxation Zone:
Setting up a little relaxation zone in your bedroom can be very therapeutic.
There is no right or wrong way to decorate a relaxation zone. As long as it’s full of things that make you feel calm, that’s all that matters.
The next time you catch yourself feeling stressed, you can head on over to your relaxation zone and take all the time you need to unwind.
You can play calming music, stretch or spray essential oils.
Practice Self Care:
You know, yourself and your body best. If you feel like you need an extra hour of sleep, or have to turn down an invitation, go ahead and do it.
At the end of the day, nothing is more important than your health and wellbeing.
Being well-rested can help you better handle stressful events and prevent burnout.
Know Your Triggers:
We all have our own definition of stress. What you find stressful, someone else may find fun and vice versa.
Once you know your triggers, you can come up with a game plan!
With a little creativity and willingness to think about the box, you can become more resilient and deal with stress in healthier ways.
