How to Relieve Stress Naturally

We live in a very fast paced busy world and with that comes stress. Whether it’s good stress associated with a blind date or the stress that can come with a big project at work, stress can make our daily tasks less enjoyable. Any doctor will tell you that lowering stress is beneficial to our health, the question is how do we lower stress naturally? Here are a few things I do to relieve my stress naturally.

Exercise - whether it’s a quick yoga session or a full blown workout, exercise is a great outlet for nervous energy and it makes me feel energized!

Games - grabbing a crossword puzzle, sudoku, or playing your favorite trivia game app on your phone can offer a short but immediate break to clear your head.

Bach - Bach RESCUE products are developed by a doctor and are non habit forming, sugar free, alcohol free, and natural in color and flavor. Available in several forms, I have RESCUE Pastilles and RESCUE Sleep Liquid Melts on hand at all times. They fit conveniently in my purse so I take them with me everywhere and keep my stress in check!

Music - Music is a game changer for me. I like a wide variety of music and cranking up my jams always puts me in a great mood! Having your headphones and your iPod or a few favorite songs on your phone can make any situation less stressful with a few verses!

Memory Lane - Taking a trip down memory lane and looking at a few pictures always makes me smile. I laugh out loud at my Girl’s Night photos and count my blessings when I scroll through pictures of my husband and boys, it’s an instant pick me up and bye bye stress!
