10 Ways to De-Stress Your Life


We are always so consumed with getting things done that it is almost impossible to not feel stressed occasionally. So to help, here are 10 great ways to de-stress your life!

Be Healthy

One of the best ways to relieve stress is simply by being healthy. Getting a good night’s sleep and adopting healthy habits go a long way to making you happier.

Get Organized

Organization is the key to reducing stress. Knowing what you must do, where something is, and when you must do something all relieves stress.

Stop Procrastinating

Procrastinating seems like a great idea when you’re doing it, but it only does more harm than good. Do your most important tasks first or tackle a challenging project in short increments rather than trying to complete something in one sitting.

Turn Off Your Phone

Constantly looking at and checking your phone isn’t healthy. The relentless need to review and respond to each and every text message, email, or social media notification increases your stress significantly. By simply turning off your phone for a little bit each day and disconnecting from the world can help you find your inner peace and peace of mind.

Do What Makes You Happy

What better way to reduce stress than doing something that makes you happy? Make sure you do something you enjoy every day. Whether it be reading a chapter in your book or watching your favorite TV show. Taking time off from work to enjoy something you really love does wonders. There are only 24 hours in a day; how you spend those hours is entirely up to you.

Accept People For Who They Are

It’s a huge relief once you stop trying to change people and accept them for who they are. It can be an impossible task trying to change someone who doesn’t want it to change. That’s stressful. Accept people for who they are, and you won’t be weighed down by trying to make someone into somebody they’re not.

Be Grateful

Be happy with what you have. There will always be someone who has more than you. There will also always be someone who has far less than you. Grateful people report higher levels of positive emotions, life satisfaction, vitality, optimism, and lower levels of depression and stress.

Avoid Multitasking

However, it can also lead to severe stress when you’re trying to juggle too many balls at once. This stress makes you feel lousy in the short term, which hampers the level of work you put forth. Tackle one task at a time to avoid stress and showcase your best work.

Stop Filling Up Your Calendar

Constantly working is a sure way to increase your stress. You will often notice that most of your business meetings aren’t even needed. They’re just there to take up time spots. When you overstuff your calendar, chances are you will have events/activities that overlap and conflict with each other. It’s stressful trying to be in two places.

Kiss Your Significant Other

That’s right, you read that correctly. Go kiss that person in your life that makes life worth living. It’s long been proven that kissing relieves stress by creating a sense of connectedness and releasing endorphins, which are the chemicals that counteract stress and depression. Show your special partner how much you really love them with a passionate kiss, and you’ll both feel better!
