The 7 Effortless Ways to Let Go of Stress

TalkShop stress tipsStress is an inevitable part of life. The fast pace lifestyle and regular pressures at work and at the home front predispose people to stress. While some are able to manage, others succumb and become sleepless, anxious, irritable, depressed, and ill.

Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO advises, “One should get a handle on stress by identifying what causes it, and taking steps to find solutions. It pays to be ready anytime, anywhere by staying fit, keeping an exercise regimen, eating a healthy diet, and giving up bad habits such as smoking and drinking. There are also methods and rituals that help release the negativity from one’s system to regain balance and control.” She shares these tips:

1. Breathe deeply. The intake of oxygen clears the mind and instantly calms one down.

2. Talk it out. Find a family or friend who will listen. A listening ear, a warm hug, and comforting words are assuring.

3. Avoid soda and sweets. The high from the sugar rush will crash in just a while. Take instead a small piece of dark chocolate.

4. Ask for peers to understand your need for peace and quiet. Colleagues will be just too willing to oblige.

5. Do healing rituals. Take a cup of tea, enjoy aromatherapy with soothing scents, have a massage.

6. Prioritize. Take on important tasks and pace yourself.

7. Pray or meditate. Have faith that things will work out. They usually do.

Viesca adds, “One must learn to be resilient. Let go of things that he cannot control, and take charge of those that he can.
