Some Tips to Manage Stress

From minor challenges to major crises, stress is part of life. It’s when stress becomes overwhelming, or it’s chronic, that it can take a toll on your well-being. That’s why it’s important to have effective stress relievers that can calm your mind and your body.

Short-Term Stress-Relief Strategies You Can Do Anywhere

Whether you’re about to be interviewed for a job or you’re feeling overwhelmed by your child’s behavior, it’s important to have some stress reduction tools that can lower your stress right now.

The best short-term strategies can be performed anywhere, take little practice to master, are free and provide immediate relief.

Guided Imagery

Guided imagery is like taking a short vacation in your mind. It can involve imagining yourself in your “happy place”— maybe sitting on a beach, listening to the waves, smelling the ocean and feeling the warm sand beneath your feet.

You can learn this technique with a recording that walks you through a peaceful scene. After you know how to do it yourself, you can practice guided imagery anywhere, by simply closing your eyes for a minute and picturing yourself in a peaceful scene. Think about all the sensory experiences you’d have, and allow yourself to feel as though you’re there. After a few minutes, open your eyes and return to the present moment.

Meditation

Meditation brings short-term stress relief as well as lasting stress management benefits.

You might develop a mantra to repeat in your mind as you take slow deep breaths. Or, you might take a few minutes to practice mindfulness, which means being in the moment. You simply pay attention to what you see, hear, taste, touch and smell.

That sounds simplistic, but when you’re focused on the here-and-now, you won’t be able to ruminate about something that already happened, and you can’t worry about something in the future.

Meditation and mindfulness take practice, but can make a big difference in your overall stress level, according to research in the National Institutes of Health.

Focus on Breathing

Focusing on your breath or changing the way you breathe can make a big difference to your overall stress level. Breathing techniques can calm your body and your brain in just a few minutes, according to research published in the National Institutes of Health.

Here are a couple of simple techniques to try.

• Breathe in through your nose and watch your belly fill with air. Count slowly to three as you inhale. Hold for one second and then slowly breathe out through your nose as you count to three again.

• Breathe in through your nose and imagine that you’re inhaling peaceful, calm air. Imagine that air spreading throughout your body. As you exhale, imagine that you’re breathing out stress and tension.

Take a Walk

Exercise is a fantastic stress reliever that can work in minutes. When you walk, you get a change of scenery, which can put you into a different frame of mind and also bring the benefits of exercise. It’s a simple but effective way to rejuvenate your mind and body.

Fast-Acting Stress-Relief Strategies at Home

In the privacy of your own home, there are many stress relief strategies that can help you relax fast.

These strategies can give you some immediate relief from stress.

Get a Hug From a Loved One

Physical touch can do a lot to relieve your stress. Hugging a loved one can be especially beneficial.

Research shows that hugging releases oxytocin (also known as the “cuddle hormone”) throughout your body. Oxytocin is associated with higher levels of happiness and lower levels of stress. Oxytocin also causes a reduction in blood pressure. It reduces the stress hormone norepinephrine and can produce a sense of relaxation. Go ahead, get a hug. It can be one of the simplest forms of stress relief.

Enjoy Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy has real benefits for stress relief — it can help you feel energized, more relaxed or more present in the moment. Emerging research suggests certain scents can alter brain wave activity and decrease stress hormones in the body.

Create Artwork

Although you may not be an artist, you can still reap the stress relieving benefits of creative work by coloring in a coloring book. Research consistently shows that coloring can have a meditative effect. One study found that anxiety levels declined in people who were coloring complex geometric patterns, making it a perfect outlet for stress reduction.

Build resilience to stress through developing a lifestyle that includes a healthy diet and plenty of exercise, time for hobbies and activities you love, such as gardening, cultivating gratitude and positive self-talk.
