Use these tips to relieve stress and enjoy life

Today, people seem to be wound up tighter than a spring. It is as if stress invades their lives at every angle. Many people don't feel normal unless they have had an anxiety attack before lunch. But, it really isn't healthy to let stress seize this much control over a person's life. What people need are simple ways to manage stress better.

Laughter

Laughter not only takes the stress away, but a good case of the giggles can really lift a person's spirits too. Laughter truly is the best medicine.

Smile

When you smile around others, it lightens the mood for everyone in the room.

Hugs

Surely there is someone around the home or office who would enjoy sharing a friendly hug. The need for contact with other humans is practically a prescription for a happier life, so maybe two hugs a day are what the doctor ordered?

Breathe

Stop holding your breath. Take a deep breath and let it out again. Spending fifteen minutes each day listening to one's own breathing can significantly reduce stress and improve a person's overall health.

Move it

Nothing can take a person's mind off stress more than 30-minutes of rigorous heart pumping exercise. Just be sure to consult with your doctor first.

Hot Bath

A hot bath really helps to take all our cares away for a couple of hours, at least.

Vitamin B

Many of the various B vitamins - especially B12 - are essential to helping people to cope with stress on a daily basis. So, it is important to replenish the body with proper daily amounts of B-vitamins.

Probiotic

What many people don't know about probiotics is that taking them can help to improve our mood over time. Consequently, this helps to keep stress at bay when we restore the proper balance of beneficial bacteria in our gut.

Stay Positive

Stop saying all those horrible things about yourself. Perhaps one of the leading causes of stress is the stress people give to themselves. It is hard to imagine how much people beat themselves up with the words that float around inside their own minds. Why not say positive things to instead?
