6 Easy Ways To Get Rid Your Stress

By Nilin, Posted 16 Nov 2018

We all have to deal with stress at different points in our lives. Our jobs, personal relationships and other situations all cause stress. Taking on too much stress for prolonged periods of time can negatively impact our physical and mental health.

Stress that is left untreated or unresolved can eventually lead to health problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. Continued stress can also have serious consequences on our mental health and overall well-being. That's why many people look for ways to reduce stress so that we can start feeling more like ourselves again.

Here are six easy ways to get rid of your stress:

1. Spend quality time with people that matter. Sometimes, we just need to spend time with family members and friends. Talking with people that we care about can help reduce stress and anxiety. It just feels good to talk with another person at times when we're frustrated or feeling stressed. They can help us cope with our problems and find ways to solve them.

2. Do something fun. If you find yourself preoccupied with things that cause nothing but stress and worry, take time for yourself to do something you enjoy. Read a good book or play your favorite video game. Do something fun can help you forget about what was bothering you for a while. It can also help to release endorphins in your brain that can improve your mood.

3. Exercise. Getting outside for a brief walk or jog after a busy day or getting some time in at the gym can work wonders for your mental health. It's also a great way to stay active and burn calories. Regular exercise can also help you get more restful sleep, as your body takes time overnight to heal any injuries or aches and pains.

4. Live in the present. Being mindful helps us live in the moment. Negative thoughts and memories can often induce anxiety or depression. Sometimes being trapped in our mind can be a dangerous situation. Learn to live in the present by practicing exercises such as yoga stretches, meditation or cognitive therapy.

5. Unplug for a while. Technology has its benefits, but it can be overwhelming at times. We feel like we need to stay connected on social media, email and television. These diversions become obligations after a while, and feeling like you constantly have to be involved can be very stressful. When you feel like you're at your limit, then it's time to unplug. Stay offline for a while, put down the phone and TV remote and do something else, even if it's just for a few minutes a day. You'll feel calmer, relaxed and less stressed.

6. Smile. There's an old saying: a negative mind will never yield a positive life. There are so many people walking around angry or upset. They hold on to negative things so much that they are all they ever think about. This leads to more anxiety, stress and depression. No day is perfect, but there's always something good about every day. Focus on the good, and smile more. Think about the positive and set goals for yourself. You'll soon feel happier, confident and less stressed in no time.


These are just a few easy ways to help reduce stress. Stress is difficult, but it can be managed. It just takes some time, effort and dedication. Finding things and people that make you happy can lead to more enjoyable years ahead.
