Stress Relievers

Image result for stressed out gif

There are times in life when we’re so stressed out that we can’t even think straight. Being a university student, I know how that feels, and it’s right to say that STRESS KILLS! It really does. Every person has a different source of stress be it family pressure, university, parenthood, socializing, and the list goes on, but there are many ways to de-stress yourself!Β 

Here are some of the best ways to relieve your stress:

  1. Deep Breathing:
    Sit down. Inhale. Exhale. Repeat.
  2. Dance:
    Let your hair down and dance like no one’s watching.
  3. Take a walk:
    It feels good to go out, get some fresh air, and connect with nature.
  4. Laugh out loud:
    Watch a funny video or talk to someone who makes you laugh. This will instantly make you feel better!
  5. Do what you like:

    Whether it is reading a book, watching a movie, baking, if it makes you happy then do it.
  6. Treat yourself:
    Don’t get me wrong, overeating isn’t a good way to deal with stress. But, having a dessert once in a while doesn’t hurt. πŸ˜‰

I hope this post helps you get rid of all that toxic stress!
