How to Live a Stress Free Lifestyle

1. Make time to do the things you like.

As well as getting regular exercise you should also make sure you give yourself the chance to do other things you enjoy. For example, this could be going to the movies, going for a coffee with a friend, or playing with your dog. Doing fun activities will take you away from stressful environments and allow you to let your hair down for a while.

  • If you can achieve a good balance in your lifestyle you could find your stress levels dropping.
  • Having a good work-life balance is very important for lowering your stress and achieving your best.
  • Neglecting friendships will only make you more stressed in the long-term.

2. Take up yoga.

As well as doing the activities that you enjoy, be on the look-out for new potential hobbies and activities. Yoga is a great option that combines physical activity, relaxation techniques, and a quiet and peaceful environment. It has been shown to work well in the reduction of stress and anxiety in scientific experiments.

  • There are a wide-range of possibilities to suit all ages and all fitness conditions, so don’t think it is only for the young and athletic.
  • Look up a course near you and speak to the instructor about the different options before signing up.
3. Enjoy regular exercise. 
Scientists argue that physical activity helps people to cope with stress, mild depression and anxiety by causing chemical changes in the brain which can help to positively alter mood. Taking regular exercise can also improve wellbeing by raising self-esteem and self-control.

  • Adults should try to include 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise a week into their schedule.
  • After a long day of work, just a short walk can help you to feel better and put the stress of the day behind you.
  • Be creative about the activity you do. You don’t have to just run around in circles or swim laps. Often getting involved in team sports can be a more fun way to exercise.

Managing Stress Over Time

 

1. Monitor your stress level.

You need to take stock of your stress in order to make changes in your life that lower it and can help you to handle it more effectively. Spend some time monitoring your stress levels and note down how often you feel yourself becoming stressed over a week. Of course the amount of stress you experience will fluctuate depending on what is happening in your life, but monitoring your stress over an initial set period is a good way to get you started thinking about it.
  • Signs of stress include raised heart rate and sweating, as well as tightness in muscles, headaches, fatigue and shortness of breath.
  • If you feel these signs think about what has caused this reaction.

2. Identify stress triggers.

Once you have begun to monitor and pay attention to your stress levels you need to try to identify specific stress triggers. Stress can come from many places. What triggers your stress? Your job? Your relationships? Your finances? Your children? Pinpointing where your stress is coming from is the first step toward dealing with it.
  • As well as the obvious negative events, positive things in your life like getting married or buying a house can trigger stress.
  • Once you have identified these, map them out on paper so you can visualize your stress points.
  • You might like to separate them out into short-term and long-term factors.
