Little amounts of stress are healthy, it keeps us focused and motivated. Sometimes it gets to be too much, and the more stress we add to ourselves, the worse it gets. Some people don’t know how to handle their stress. They get caught in their minds, over think and create more stress. Literally anything can cause stress, so having some go to stress relievers may do you some justice the next time you’re feeling blue.

Think Positive

When life gets to hectic and we have what feels like a million and one things happening, it is hard to take a step back and refocus. Stressing the bad is easier than focusing on the good. Think positive and you may begin to relieve some stress.

Can you count?

Next time you find yourself in a rut and can’t control your emotions, try counting down from 10. Then count back up to 10, do this repeatedly for a couple minutes and get back to your day.

This One Is Easy

If you are stressing because you have too much on your plate, then just drop some responsibilities. Multitasking is ok when you must, but living your life constantly stressing to multitask because you have so many things to do is a sign that it might be better to stick to one thing at a time!

LOL Just Laugh

Being goofy is important to relieving stress. Crack a joke with a friend, or make up something funny in your head. Whatever your sense of humor is will put you in a better mood.

Disconnect Yourself

It’s the 21st century, that means the distractions are higher than ever. What comes with all the information at the tip of our fingers? More stress. It is true that knowledge is power, on the other hand, ignorance is bliss. Turn your smartphone off and see how your day changes by not worrying about everything else but yourself.
