How to De-Stress During These Stressful Times

This past week has been a stressful one for everyone. Sometimes we don’t know how to handle large amounts of stress that comes upon  us. We might try avoiding what is making us feel so stressed out but that only leads to headaches that won’t go away. Here are three ways to get rid of those stress headaches!



1. Take a break from watching the news. You might be getting stressed over everything that is going on. So try not to use your electronics for long periods. Setup certain times to do something else other than just being on social media all the time. Talk to your friends and family, take a nap, or watch a show/listen to music that you find relaxing. Do something to get your mind off of whatever is stressing you out.



2. Sometimes we might not have anyone around to talk with or will feel a little embarrassed to talk about certain topics. Instead, write down your thoughts. Get a notebook or even on your cell phone you can use the notes app already installed and write your thoughts down on certain things. Having your mind filled with many different thoughts at once causes stress and even headaches so writing these thoughts down helps so much. It is a way of getting your thoughts out of your head.



3. Get yourself outside! Go do some exercise and get that blood pumping. Feel the fresh air by going for a quick walk or run. What’s important is that your body is moving around. Make sure that you are exercising at least a couple of times a week that way you won’t feel so stressed out as much and it is also a way to help you maintain good health. So it will be a win-win situation.
