We lead a crazy life, we run from one place to another, we look like automatic going from home to work and from work to home … and when we least expect it, we explode! And is that stress is the worst life partner we can have, since there are many bad things that it gives us, in terms of physical and mental health, and that is why we must take into account several steps to get the batteries and start to take it away as much as possible from our life, take note!
- Relativizing is one of the essential things we must do to not stress ourselves. By this I mean not overwhelmed by nonsense, not give so much importance to things that do not have, to live for what it deserves and not overload us with problems that do not correspond to us or that are not worth it.
- Beware of medication! In case of stress and nerves, we often throw out pills for the nerves, or to sleep … that create a lot of dependency and we enter a spiral from which it is even more complicated to leave. For these cases it is good to value homeopathy as a treatment, an alternative complementary to the conventional one and guaranteed by law.
- To rest well. This is a very important step, and when I say rest well, I say without getting into bed with the mobile phone or the Tablet to distract us until the many. A trick! For months I bought a traditional alarm clock because I used my cell phone as an alarm clock and, with the excuse, I slept with my cell phone on my head and it distracted me very much with him in bed. Since then, I leave at night loading in the living room and sleep much more comfortable and quiet.
- The hot baths with lavender oil are fantastic, you know that I am a fan of them and I do at least two a week. They serve to eliminate stress, fatigue and accumulated tensions, and you sleep like a little angel.
- For tensional headaches generated by stress, it is best to go for a walk in the air before returning home, rather than throwing ourselves back to ibuprofen or paracetamol. There are also natural oils in roll on for the area of the temples that go great, and for the most chronic cases of headache you can also treat the symptoms with homeopathy that can relieve you.
- Sports, sports and sport. It is essential against stress, anxiety and everything bad that overwhelms us and exhausts daily. Even though I am exhausted, I do not fail my aquapilates class twice a week, I walk at least half an hour daily or I do 20 minutes of stationary bicycle, it is fundamental and the body appreciates it and notices it immediately, you are much calmer, in way, de-stress, you get less tired … Those who can go for a run, it is a wonder also against daily stress and gives a rush of energy that, to start or end the day, is phenomenal.
- Yes, my famous weekly “pharaohs”, those moments in which I do scrubs, masks, I go to the Spa or I get a beauty treatment … also essential to disconnect and feel better with ourselves.
- The food is the last tip that I put, but perhaps the most important, and it is more than proven that eating well is essential for our body and, also, for our stress. I have been eating a lot better for a while, eliminating sugar, since I used to drink a lot of sugar and I have reduced it a lot, and betting on real food, homemade food that you prepare, without buying prepared, pre-cooked, frozen or anything rare that enter us through the eyes but, when reading the ingredients, you feel that, directly, you are poisoning yourself.
These are just some steps that we should start to put into practice to feel better and fight against daily stress. I, really, think that I put into practice almost everyone, and you? Can you add one more to the list to have a healthier life and less stress?
