4 Simple Steps to Relieving Stress & Anxiety

We all live busy lives.  Amid all of the business… it is so easy to get caught up in constant stress and anxiety.  I know it is easier said than done… but in order to live a healthier, longer life… we should always try to reduce and relieve the major stressors and anxieties from our lives.  Read on for 4 simple hacks to relieve stress and anxiety in your life.

  1. I know it can be hard to find time… but do it anyway!  You don’t have to go to the gym, or do any major workouts.  All you have to do is move!  Get out and ride your bike, or go for a small walk.  Find a friend to do it with you and it won’t even feel like exercise, it will feel like more of a social event that you can look forward to every day, or 3 times a week.
  2. Reduce your caffeine intake. It is no surprise that caffeine increases your energy and thus can also increase your anxiety.  Although caffeine can be healthy in moderation, it is not always for everyone.  In addition, reducing caffeine doesn’t mean removing it completely.
  3. Surround yourself with family and friends. Emotional and social support can get you through stressful times.  A lot of times talking about what is bothering you relieves a lot of stress and anxiety.  If you are constantly surrounding yourself with people you trust and can talk to, when things come up… don’t bottle them up.  Let them out and relieve your stress.  Literally get the stress off of your chest.
  4. Laugh! I know, seems simple.  But truly, laugh it up!  Laughing brings more oxygen into your body, stimulates and relieves your stress response, and relieves tension and relaxes your body.  In addition, laughter also increases your mood… which leads to a decrease in anxiety.

Living a stress-free life is not always obtainable, but reducing stress is always an option.  I hope these tips help!
