You may be surprised to discover that biological stress is a recent discovery. The first stress was identified and documented in the end of the 1950s by endocrinologist Hans Selye.
There were signs of stress long ago, but his results led to new research that helped millions to deal with stress. The top 10 ways to alleviate pressure have been collected by us.
Try to take a pause and listen to relaxing music when you feel overwhelmed by a stressful situation. A calm musical effect can reduce blood pressure and lower cortisol, a stress-related hormone, in both the brain and body.
Cello master Yo-Yo Ma playing Bach, we recommend trying listening to ocean or nature sounds when classical is really not your thing. It might sound cheesy, but the effects on music are similar.
Take a rest to call a friend and chat about your problems if you feel stressed. For a healthy lifestyle, good relations with friends and loved ones are crucial.
These are particularly important when you’re stressed a lot. A trustworthy voice can bring it all into perspective, even for a minute.
It isn’t an option sometimes to call a friend. If so, it may be the next best thing to talk to you calmly.
Don’t worry about seeming nuts— just tell yourself why you’re stressed, what you have to do to complete the job, and above all, it’s all alright.
Stress and a healthy diet are closely linked. Unless we are tired, we sometimes forget about eating well and pick-up with succulent, unhealthy snack food.
Try to avoid snacks and to prepare for them. Fruit and vegetables have always been healthy, and the signs of stress have been minimized in fish with high levels of omega-3 fatty acids. It’s really brain food to have a tuna sandwich.
Laughter releases endorphins that improve the disposition and decrease levels of cortisol and adrenaline stress hormones. Laughing makes you happy throughout your nervous system.
We suggest that you take a look at some classic Monty-Python skits, like “The Silly Walks Ministry.” They’re so funny, you’re going to crack, rather than crack.
The long-term blood pressure spike results in a large dose of caffeine. This could also contribute to an overdrive of the hypothalamic-hypophysis adrenal axis.
Try green tea rather than coffee or power drinks. It has less than half the caffeine in coffee and contains both safe antioxidants and theanine, a nervous system relaxant amino acid.
Most of the tips we suggested offer immediate relief, but many lifestyle changes are possible in the long term. The concept of “mindfulness” has become popular recently and is a major part of meditative and somatic approaches to mental health.
These attention systems include physical and mental exercises, which prevent stress from becoming a problem, from yoga and tai chi through to meditation and Pilates. Try to join a course.
Training doesn’t necessarily mean lifting power in the gym or marathon training. A quick stroll around the workplace or just a break at work can provide relaxation instantly in a stressful situation.
It releases endorphins by getting your blood moved and can almost instantly improve your mood.
You may lose sleep by everybody knowing stress. Sleep loss is also a big cause of stress, sadly. This evil loop brings the brain and body out of whack and only worsens over time.
Be sure to sleep the doctor 7 to 8 hours recommended. Switch off Television earlier, dim the lights, and relax before you go to bed. It could be the most efficient stressor on our list.
It may seem like a cliché that the advice’ takes a deep breath,’ but it is true in stress. Buddhist monks have been aware of deliberate breathing during meditation for hundreds of years.
Sit in your chair with your feet flat on the floor and your hands above your knees for a quick three to five-minute workout. Respire slowly and deeply and focus on your lungs as they expand in your chest completely.
At low respiration, the blood oxygenates profoundly, helping you centralize and clear up your mind.
