DE-STRESS | Week 3 | Discover Easy Days to Relax by Getting Creative
Kicking caffeine is a fantastic way to reduce stress long-term. However, that’s no good if you need to relieve tension right this second.
Whether at home or work, an easy way to relax can be to write about your feelings.
When your head is a tornado of emotions, it’s not always possible to disclose these to other people. Writing solves this problem by allowing you to channel your stress outwardly.
- Carry a journal or create a file on your phone or tablet, where you can write out your feelings whenever you feel overwhelmed.
- Write honestly, even if what you are writing wouldn’t usually make sense to another person.
- Freely jot down thoughts, dreams, and details of stressful situations that otherwise always stay bottled up.
Writing feelings out is essentially a form of self-therapy. Just remember to keep where you write your most intimate thoughts far from prying eyes.
