Life is amazing and incredible in so many different ways, but it can also be very stressful at times. It’s important to take time for ourselves and know how we can keep our stress at bay in a healthy way!
That’s why I’ve created this little guide of a few fun and simple ways I like to de-stress in my life! Hopefully, these ways will help you too.
The most important thing to remember when you start to feel the stress of life weigh down on your shoulders is to pause and take a deep breath. Tell your self it’s going to be ok, and follow this little guide!
Take A Day For Yourself
A great way to de-stress is to make time for yourself. Take a day for you to do whatever makes you happy! Whether that’s staying in and watching movies, going to get your nails done, hanging out with friends, or whatever comes to mind for you.
It’s so important to remember to do things that make you happy and don’t necessarily rely on anyone else. This could be reading, resting, exercising, or whatever you want to do! Take some time to treat yourself, you deserve it.
Warm Bath With Candles
Another great way to de-stress is to take a nice warm bath. Light your favorite smelling candles all around and play your favorite music as you just relax and forget about everything else going on, even if it’s for just a moment.
Grab a bath bomb to make it extra special and fun if you’d like; again, you deserve it!
One of my favorite things to do when I’m feeling a little stressed is to go to a fun yoga class. This could be vinyasa, or even a vin/yin class to really help you relax.
I find that doing yoga really helps me to stay grounded and keep everything in proper perspective. It helps me to re-focus and be grateful for life as it is! It will help you to just breath and let things come and go as they should.
If you can’t make it to a yoga class, you can even youtube different yoga routines you can follow along with wherever you’re at! Just remember to slow down and relax; life is so short and it’s important to do that so you won’t get overwhelmed with the busyness that life can bring.
Read By The Pool
If it’s summertime and you’re near a pool, then grab your favorite book and take a break to relax by the pool. This is a really fun and simple way to de-stress, especially if you like to read.
You’ll lose track of time as you get lost in your favorite book and when you go back inside, you’ll be so grateful you took that little bit of time for yourself!
Walk In The Park/Get Outside
Another wonderful way to destress is to get outside. You can walk in your neighborhood, or even go to a local park. You could listen to a motivational podcast or your favorite music as you take in some Vitamin D from the sun and fresh oxygen from the air!
There’s something special about being outside in nature that will instantly help you to relax, even if you’re only out for a few minutes.
Cook Yourself Dinner
If you like to cook then this is a really fun and simple way to help you de-stress. Just grab some ingredients you have on hand, or even run to the store and pick out whatever you’d like!
I don’t know what it is, but there’s honestly something about grocery shopping that helps me when I’m feeling stressed out, lol!
Anyways, it’s so important to do little things like this to treat yourself. After you’ve made your favorite meal you can relax and enjoy it while you watch your favorite movie and maybe even sip your favorite wine. Cheers!
