10 Ways to De-Stress Your Life

Let’s keep it ticking as long as we can.

  1. Step Outside/Change the scenery/ Walk out of the room
  2. Sing at the top of your voice/ Listen to loud music
  3. List out the top 3 must do’s the night before and do those first the next morning
  4. Schedule when you check your email, not every 5-10 minutes, to allow yourself time to finish other projects or assignments.
  5. Have a social media free get-away or “staycation” where you do not engage in facebook ,tiktok, instagram, snapchat, or other social outlets for 2-3 days.
  6. Pick out your outfit the night before for one less step the next morning
  7. Pre-set your coffee maker or have your tea or protein shake ingredients and blender ready to go for a convenient morning beverage.
  8. Wake up 10 minutes earlier than normal and meditate on positive affirmations for a great day
  9. Budget your time blocks into work, family, active/gym/workout time. Stick to your timeline.
  10. Practice deep breathing in the stressful moments and waiting to respond.

The 24 hour rule for non life threatening decisions: If you are anxious, nervous, or frustrated/angry about a situation allow yourself 24 hours or a good night’s rest to respond. Responding from a ramped up emotional state will not give the best outcomes possible.  Simply say “I will get back to you tomorrow” so you have acknowledged their question. Ex. You just got a work deadline for 3 days from now that is not able to be met. You have too many other loose ends to fix up.  You check your email and notice your child’s science project is due in 2 days and you had allotted time to help with that tomorrow. Your spouse or significant other sends you a text saying “I’m at the grocery store what do you want for dinner”? You may incline to reply to the spouse “I don’t care, I’m busy right now”, to your boss “I’ve got too much to do 3 days is not going to be feasible.” and to your child “I’m sorry but work just got hectic I won’t be able to help you with it.” There is nothing wrong with those phrases, but is that the best you can do? What if, you replied to your spouse/significant other “I’m not sure about dinner. Pick out your favorite meal ingredients or we can order out today”, to your boss “I’ll let you know about the status of the project tomorrow morning”  (giving yourself 24 hours or at least a nights sleep to assess what is absolutely necessary to complete and when) and to your child “Can you start on your science project and I will be home to help you in an hour so we can finish it together”. Remember, if you don’t give yourself the time to pace through these choices and come to a concrete decision, off the cuff remarks can have negative effects on you and your contacts.
