Feeling Stressed These Days?

March 26, 2020

Who is stressed these days? That’s a silly question. Just about every routine day, brings a bit of stress. But right now is anything, but routine! So how do we deal with it? 

Here are some simple suggestions:

  1. Listen to music. Download the RADIO.com app and be sure to favorite your station.
  2. Exercise. Go for a walk with the dog. Do Yoga, Tai Chi, aerobics. Dance to your favorite kind of music.
  3. Smell a soothing scent… Candles, oils. Try lavender, rosemary or even a springtime scent.
  4. Take a hot bath. The soothing effect of a hot bath can increase blood flow and ease pain. Don’t forget the rubber ducky.
  5. Massage. Who doesn’t love a good massage?
  6. Drink a cup of herbal tea. Chamomile and passion fruit are natural relaxants.
  7. Get a good night’s sleep.  Strive for 8 hours, then write down your dreams.
  8. Improve your diet. Put down the junk food, and choose healthy snacks instead.
  9. Organize-- your home, your finances, your life.
  10. Have a bubble blowing contest.
  11. Scream “rubber baby buggy bumpers” really loud.
  12. Eat chocolate.
  13. Plant some flowers.
  14. Reconnect with a family member or friend.  Pick up the phone or send them a text—you’ll be glad that you did!
