De-Stress Your Life

Got this from Faye.

Breathe Deeply

* Concentrate on your breathing for five breaths. I always do it every time I'm stress or can't sleep at night. Just close your eyes and focus on each breath as it comes in and then goes out. Focus on the breathing and let any other thoughts drift away :) Try it, it helps ;)

Take a Walk

* Getting up and moving around gets your blood flowing and calms you. Try walking around your backyard, at the park or going outside for 10 minutes to get some fresh air.

Focus on one thing

* Instead of trying to do everything at once and multitasking, learn to do one task at a time. I just notice that multitasking is more stressful and less effective. Because you were preoccupied with so many things, you may tent forget some in your to do list. Try to focus on one thing, It's less stressful and more effective ;)

Choose 3 tasks

* Instead of trying to tackle a lot of tasks and projects, pick the three very important tasks that you want to accomplish today. Focus on doing those before anything else. It can help you to think clearly ;)

Simplify your schedule

* If your schedule is packed with appointments, meetings and tasks, have you noticed, it's stressful. Try to schedule less, which means getting out of less important commitments. Leave space to breathe.

Take Time for Important Things

* Whether it's spending time with family, exercising, reading, pursuing something you're passionate about or just taking some quiet time, put it on your schedule and make it an unmissable appointment :)

Live in the Moment

* Most of us are worrying about what might happen or replaying things that have already happened. Obviously that's very stressful ways of thinking. Instead, focus on what is happening now. Practice in five- to 10-minute intervals at first, and you'll begin to improve :)
