Some days you just need a break from life and you deserve to take that break. Regardless if it has been a stressful week or too much going on in your life, taking time to relax can help you clear your mind and start fresh. Some people need an hour to a full day. Either way here is a list of ways to reduce stress and get back on track.
Ways to Reduce Stress
Read a Book.
Getting lost in a good book can help you get away and leave you forgetting about what you were stressing about. Read in a place where it is quiet such as a park, outside or in your bedroom with the door closed.
Take a Walk.
A breath of fresh air may be what you need. By taking a 20-30 minute walk can clear your mind and focus on the present moment.
Sometimes you need to get away from the virtual world as that can be time-consuming and create more stress. To do this shut off all electronic devices such as phones, computers, and TV.
Write it down.
Instead of worrying about things, make a list of things that need to be done or what you need to achieve. It’s becomes a great accomplishment when you can cross it off your list after it’s completed.
Take a Nap.
A short nap consisting of 20 minutes is all you need to clear your head and start over.
Remember when you were a kid and how coloring was so relaxing? It can still give off the same effect as an adult. Choose an adult coloring book and color away the stress. Not only will you create a pretty picture but relieve stress at the same time.
Sip some Tea.
There is just something about sipping tea that gives off a calming effect especially drinking Chai Tea. Not only does Chai Tea increase peace of mind but is also beneficial to our bodies such as improving digestion and immune system along with antioxidant properties. There is no need to stop at a coffee house to enjoy a cup. You can brew Chai Latte in your own Keurig® brewer at home with the TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® pods. Enjoy the rich, creamy taste of an authentic TAZO® Chai Latte, with every sip providing a spicy and sweet escape with the new Sweet Meets Spicy Collection.
