Imagine stress is water, and you’re a bucket. As you get more and more stressed, your bucket will fill up. Eventually, your bucket will start to get heavier and hevaier, weighing you down. In order to avoid this, we destress, putting in spouts to let the water out before it gets too full! Here are 10 ways to destress after a particularly stressful time!
1. Listen to Music
2. Take a Bath or Shower
Warmth stops pain sensors in the nerves and makes muscles relax. You’ll be less tense and get clean. You can even add bath bombs or salts to make it more fun.
3. Spend time with animals
Research shows that playing with animals releases feel good hormones (such as oxytocin) in humans.
4. Write down what you’re worrying about
This can be extremely soothing because it helps you to get off your chest your worries and get organized.
Just pick something you enjoy and start creating. It’ll help you get your mind off things!
