Being a part of the rat race of going to work, taking care of children, and maintaining a home makes us humans forget about ourselves and start the process of neglecting our emotions and human needs. We are always tensed up and stressed out about one thing or another which has harmful effects towards our health. This exhaustive state that we are always in causes us to lean more towards doing things that tire us even more. This should stop. We should start listening to what the body needs and take some time to relax. Below are a few activities you could do to relieve yourself of stress.
The release of CO2
Breathing is something we do without even thinking about it. It is the simplest activity that we do, so why not start focusing more on it? According to research, taking in five deep breaths, and being in the now can help you feel less stressed within seconds. The pauses between each inhale and exhale is considered to give our bodies a natural break.
Our muscles and practically the entire body is filled with unnecessary and unwanted acids, aided to build up by the worrying, and the stressing we do all day. Therapeutic massage is one way to get rid of these unwanted acids, by slowly breaking them down and dissolving all the bad toxins by stimulating all the muscles and tissues in our body.
Put yourself first
Of course unlike getting yourself a therapeutic massage services, tending to yourself and putting yourself first doesn’t cost money. This can be done throughout the day. From when you wake until you go to sleep. Start off with a healthy and delicious meal cooked in your own kitchen, go for a walk under the sun in the afternoon and give yourself a tan. Clean out all the sheets on your bed and put in new ones to help you get a good night’s sleep, and to end the day take a hot bath and rejuvenate yourself.
Write them down
When we are stressed and frustrated with ourselves we tend to think of all the things that had gone wrong, we become pessimists and start to doubt ourselves and our capabilities. This needs to stop. Just because a few hours in our day isn’t going according to plan doesn’t mean nothing was accomplished. This is why like some write down what they are grateful for, you should start writing down the top good three things that happened to you within that day. Engrossing ourselves in the day to day activities of chaos is causing us to forget about ourselves, which is why we need to take some time and cater to ourselves and needs.
