Stress Management

These days while juggling between work, family, and other commitments, you can become too stressed out and busy. But you need to set time aside to unwind yourself.

 

1. Exercise

Working out regularly is one of the best ways to relax your body and mind. Plus, exercise will improve your mood. But you have to do it often for it to pay off.

So how much should you exercise every week?

Good: 3 to 5 times for 30 minutes

Better: 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderately intense exercise like brisk walks

Best: 75 minutes of a vigorous exercise like swimming, jogging, or other sports that gets your heart rate up

Most of all remember that doing any exercise is better than none at all.

2. Relax Your Muscles

When you’re stressed, your muscles get tense. You can refresh your body by:

Stretching

Enjoying a massage

Taking a hot bath or shower

Getting a good night’s sleep

 

3. Deep Breathing

Sit in a comfortable position.Close your eyes.

Imagine yourself in a relaxing place. It can be on the beach or anywhere that gives you a peaceful feeling. Slowly do  deep breathing for 5 to 10 minutes.

 

4.Make Time for Hobbies

You need to set aside time for things you enjoy. Try to do something every day that makes you feel good, and it will help relieve your stress. Take out 15 to 20 minutes daily. Relaxing hobbies include things like:

Reading

Knitting

Doing an art project

Playing golf

Watching a movie

Doing puzzles

Playing cards and board games.
