Experts Advise How to Rid Yourself of Unwelcome Stress

Being a strong believer in the power of yoga and other stress relieving activities, I experimented by trying some new remedies to relieve stress without spending hundreds of dollars on massages and unnecessary medications. Life is full of stressful circumstances, and it’s important to stay in touch with yourself. You can get to know your inner being even better that you already do just by spending some quality time with yourself, and by doing so your stress will melt away.

“Listening to yourself helps you to get to know yourself. Knowing yourself is the first step to managing yourself, and your stress” -Lynne Soraya, Psychology Today Blogger

Psychology experts give some advice as to how they relieve the stress in their lives. From plugging in headphones for some jamming to your favorite songs, to simply taking a few deep breaths before soaking in the nature around you, there are many ways to relieve stress anywhere at any time. No purchase necessary.

Life lesson: sing like your happiness depends on it, because it just might. Studies show that singing not only improves your mood, it also reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, improves breathing, boosts your immune system, provides comfort and the list goes on. So whether you’re a shower singer or a car singer, let your vocal chords loose.

“Even if you can’t control the event causing the stress, you do have some control over your response to it. “ –Mindy Greenstein, Ph.D

Not only is yoga beneficial to your mental and physical health and wellness, but research shows that it also has a positive impact on your gene expression. Differing from standard workouts, yoga’s impacts happen almost instantly. Studies show that yoga is more effective in relieving inflammation in your immune system known to cause stress than any other workout.

Green tea is more than just a delicious zero calorie treat that can be enjoyed hot or cold, it plays a role in decreasing stress levels. Green tea contains powerful antioxidants that aid in multiple health benefits and can help prevent a number of diseases. Theanine, found in green tea, helps focus attention allowing you to be more diligent.
