Stress is your body’s response to pressure, which can be caused by different situations or life events. Stress is triggered in certain situations and life events because you may be experiencing something new, unexpected, or that threatens your sense of self, or when you feel you have little control over a situation.

 Have you ever been in a situation where you are currently feeling stressed? If you are, you should know that there are many things you can do to help you ease the stress you are currently experiencing. These are the five ways you can alleviate your stress.

 

  1. Exercise- exercising is a good way to help you relieve your stress because it helps you take your mind off your worries and every body motion you take in exercising, promotes a focus on your body, rather than your mind.
  2. Meditate- meditation benefits both your emotional well-being and your overall health, which is a great thing to do to help alleviate your stress.
  3. Do something you really like doing- doing something you like doing for example cooking, can help you take your mind off any worries you have. 
  4. Write down what you are feeling/experiencing in a journal, it will make you feel better
  5. Take a nap
