6 Ways to release stressWritten by Kenia Morales
We are currently living in a capitalist society where money and power rule. Therefore, many of us have become workaholics and often overlook signs of tiredness in order to stay on track. I am not saying that people should stop working hard to achieve their goals. However, there is a slight problem we do not know how to manage our stress, which is definitely not a good thing! Stress has been linked to mental/emotional (depression, anxiety, and anger) and physical illnesses (weakens immune system). Therefore, it is more than important that you constantly work on reducing your stress level in order to maintain your overall health. The bottom line is, if we are not healthy there is no money or power that will make things better. So, take care of yourself. Below, I have added six stress releasing tips.
Exercise: even if you go for a walk for 15-25 minutes four days a week it will help your body to get rid of adrenaline and produce endorphins (a natural tranquilizer). Not to mention you will not only feel better, you will also look part.
Yoga: Many ramble that practicing yoga is best way to manage or release stress. It focuses on breathing techniques, exercises, connecting with universe on a spiritual and mental level. If this option seems interesting to you I suggest you do some research in order to learn principles and decide if it is for you.
How Do I Stop Procrastinating?Written by Amanda Shoemaker
Often times we procrastinate because it just seems like so much WORK to get what we want! We just don't feel like rewards justify everything that needs to be done to obtain those goals.
Other times we procrastinate because we feel like we can't have what we really want so we settle for something less than we truly deserve.
Life should be and CAN be fun!
Take a moment, close your eyes and think about what it is that you truly want. Then ask yourself WHY you want it. Then ask yourself again, what is it that you REALLY, REALLY want?
Repeat this process until you've found what it is that you really want out of life. You'll know you've found it when you have some physical reaction in your body (i.e. - excitement, butterflies, changes in breathing).
