Your help to sustainable health and redesigning your body
When reading up on stress you find many answers and it is of course both personal and also depending on the reason to why you are stressed. Here are 10 tips on how to reduce stress. These are easy to do, unless your stress i s acute. If you feel acute stress or if stress becomes a recurrent problem however I do urge you to find professional help from a therapist of some sort.
1 Breath. Breathing is our best way to control our puls and reconnect with our bodies. Slow down your breathing and simply concentrate on inhale-exhale, inhale-exhale.
3 Slow walks during daylight. If you have any kind of nature close by, then walk there.
4 Put on a piece of calming music and move with it. Press your feet to the ground, even stomp if you feel like it. A bonus if you have bare feet.
5 Drink water. When we are stressed we tend to dehydrate so make sure to rehydrate regularly.
6 Add extra nutrition. It is extremely important that you get more and proper nutrition. When we are stressed the body burns large amounts of nutrients, especially B vitamins and magnesium. Regular exercise,but avoid high intensity exercise if you are very stressed or suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome. Try slow yoga, body balance or other activities that will help you bring down your heart rate, but also helps the body to carry out waste products. Do not forget to drink water!
7 Eat or drink something as quickly as possible in the morning. It could be a fruit or a glass of milk if there is some time before breakfast. The reason is that the body otherwise soon begins to “look to economize” with your energy and eventually becomes stressed and starts producing cotisol.
8 Eat regularly. This will help the system to relax as our bodies know when it will get food the next time. Also the risk of missing a meal or to stress eat will be much easier to control.
9 Put on a piece of music that you know well – sing along. Sing out as loud as you dare!
10 Physical touch. Hug a friend, a partner, your child, a cat or a dog. Also tactile massage can work if it’s a place and a person you feel safe with.
These tips are gathered from my own experience. Some of them were originally from professionals. Here are two links, the second one all in Swedish I’m sorry.
