Relieve Stress Quickly

Stress is a daily occurrence for some, while others seem hardly ever phased by it. Though it seems to affect everyone differently, it can best be described as feeling pressure from internal or external forces that affect the individual in both negative and positive ways. Typically, when people are affected most by stress, it is purely negative, and has to do with factors involving your home environment, job, family, relationships with others, challenges, expectations, and worries. The way stress is handled by the individual can influence overall health and well-being after several years, and can be a factor in anxiety, insomnia, heart conditions, and other potentially serious ailments.

How can I prevent stress?

  • Stress can be difficult to prevent because things sometimes occur that aren’t planned but can throw a wrench into an otherwise good situation. Mentally changing how the body responds to stress, through meditation and change of attitude, can help shift stress from a negative to a positive before it even starts.
  • Identify sources of stress in life and avoid those sources as much as possible.

What are the symptoms of stress?

  • Tight muscles, clenched hands or jaw, faster heart rate, and shallow breathing are all symptoms of stress. Some anxiety symptoms can also be identified as stress symptoms.
  • Becoming more angry and agitated, withdrawing from others, or freezing up altogether are all external symptoms of stress.

How do I get rid of stress?

  • Learning to practice quick meditations when stress levels increase is the best way to solve it. It can also help to prevent stress, which may be the most helpful part. Meditation helps to gain perspective in stressful situations, creates new skills in handling stress, increases self-awareness, and reduces negative emotions.
  • Visualize a relaxing circumstance that you can look forward to after this stressful moment is done, such as taking a warm bath or going on a nice hike.
  • Breathe deeply 10 times and allow the stress to leave with each exhale.
  • Show some love to a family member, as human contact will help in feeling more relaxed.
