Before you even manage to start your day, the majority of us experience what Doctor Howard Murad calls, Cultural Stress – the stress of modern living. This is a type of stress we experience daily and is having huge implications on our health.
Here are some easy to follow steps to de-stress.
Be Kind To Your Mind – Breathe Deeply
Taking in oxygen helps us to think more clearly. When you feel stressed, take a deep breath, hold for 3 seconds and release. Repeat as needed.
Use Calming Visualization
This may be a place, color or feeling. Simply shut your eyes and focus on a calming visualization for ten seconds.
Turn Off Your Device
Simply leave your phone in another room or switch it off for an hour. You will be amazed at the freedom created by stepping away from your digital dependency.
Find Something To Be Passionate About
Not everybody has a passion or hobby but it is never too late to start. Try something new today and find something that uniquely fulfills you.
