Back in the 1980s there were numerous Calgon bath commercials that promised to wash away your worries. The tagline was “Calgon take me away.” Not too bad of an advertising messaging, because there is actually truth to it. Taking time for yourself can definitely help to decrease stress and anxiety.
Here are 3 simple tips to reduce stress:
#1 Take a Break From the Worries of the World
It might be difficult, but carving out time to relax, take a bath, take a walk or simply shut yourself in a separate room for 10 minutes to do deep breathing exercises can reduce anxiety significantly and over time, you will most likely notice that these personal care methods will help you to become calmer throughout the day.
#2 Keep Moving
Talk with your physician about the right exercise plan for you. Most people can benefit from taking a brisk 30-minute walk or a 30-minute swim. Exercise increases circulation, reduces stress, it also improves nutrient and oxygen rich blood flow, and helps you build strength and to lose weight. If you can work out harder, it’s extremely beneficial to get your heart rate up daily with cardiovascular exercise.
#3 Meditation & Prayer
Yoga helps to improve flexibility, blood flow, muscle strength, posture, immune function, bone health, decreases depressive episodes, and can regulate blood pressure. Meditation and prayer also reduces stress, reduces anxiety, promotes emotional wellbeing, can help fight addictions, can generate health and improve immune function, it can stave off memory disorders and increase neuronal plasticity.
In some cases anti-anxiety or antidepression medications may be necessary. Talk to your physician if you have unresolved, ongoing stress.
