The Steps I am Taking to Relax

Anyone who knows me knows that I have a lot of stress from being pulled in many directions. They would also tell you that I hide that stress very well. I tend to keep it bottled up inside. So in an effort to start eradicating the stress, I bottle up; here are 5 measures that I have recently taken to help ease the burden inside.

What are some things you do to relieve stress?

  1. I bought a hammock chair and I sit in it every evening to unwind from the workday
  2. I practice deep breathing first thing in the morning, the last thing at night, and whenever I feel a heightened amount of stress during my workday
  3. I take a bath and give myself a facial. It sounds frivolous but sitting in water calms my nerves and the pressure of circular movements on my face help me relax all the tense spots
  4. I talk a walk even if it is just a few minutes. Being outside just feels better
  5. I pray
