De-stress Your Life

By: egdcltd
Everyone responds differently to stressful events. That stress response is part instinct and part to do with how we think. We can train our minds how to best respond to the stressors in our lives. Stress does not need to be all bad. Some stress in our daily lives is good and challenges us to reach even higher heights.

Many people go through their days not aware of the stress in their lives. They might think, "Well, how serious can it be if I don't even know it exists?"

Regardless of how little or how much stress you have in your life, being able to identify it will be a big help to you. Once you are able to identify the stress in your life for what it is, you can then go about the business of dealing with it more effectively.

Make no mistake about it - if there is stress in your life, chances are you are reacting negatively to at least some of it.

Stress Busting Tip

The very best thing that you can do for yourself is to eat, drink and rest - to your health!

Stress is easily brought on by not eating and drinking properly. When you don't get the number of hours of sleep that you need each night, you are only setting yourself up for additional stress.

Limit the amount of salt, sugar, caffeine and alcohol in your diet. Drink plenty of clean, pure water each day and do at least moderate exercise each day. This will breathe new life into your skin, hair and will nourish all of your vital organs.

Take time to breathe properly! Take deep belly breathes to send pure oxygen to all of your body.

Laugh Your Stress Away

Humor is a terrific stress-reducer and antidote to all manner of upsets. It has been clinically proven to be effective in combating the worst of stress.

Experts know that a good laugh relaxes tense muscles, sends more oxygen into your system, quicker and lowers your blood pressure.

So next time you feel yourself start to tense up, tune into your favorite comedy on television. Read a funny book. Call up a good friend and laugh heartily for a few good minutes. It doesn't even hurt to just force a good laugh now and then. You'll find your stress melting away with each breath!

Americans were attracted to humor while reading the stories of Norman Cousins. This man successfully overcame cancer by watching his favorite comedy shows on television.

These days, you can attend an organized humor meeting and even in places such as India where laughing in a public place is frowned upon.
