Beat Stress and Stay Cucumber Cool

Things aren't going quite right, frustration setting in, you can feel your blood pressure rising? Here's some helpful tips to keep you cool as a cucumber. - Having a bath can soothe the soul and the body. Add your favourite scent, add some candles, close your eyes and relax or grab your favorite book. Close the door and tell everyone it's your time out and you're not to be disturbed. - Get outside and excercise. Excercising releases endorphins and alleviates tension. Something as simple as a power walk can do wonders for your mood and stress level. If possible take a walk away from the urban distractions. If there is a trail or park where you can retreat it will do wonders for your sanity. Between the walk, the flower fragrances, and the smell of fresh air you'll be feeling better in no time at all. - If you awaken feeling stressed. Take a few minutes to calm your body. For one minute breath in deeply through your nose and out through your mouth. Get out of bed and do 20 jumping jacks or run on the spot for 30 seconds to get your energy flowing. Eat a healthy breakfast and then decide what one goal or task your going to complete for the day. - Don't stress yourself out by writing out a task list that is simply too big to manage. Instead choose 5 most important things you need to accomplish that day. List them from most important [must complete] to least important. Once you've accomplished those 5 tasks you can start a new list. - Take time out - meditate for five minutes. Using a light pressure, push the palms of your hands into your closed eyes. Slowly release and take deep breaths, then push your palms back into your eyes. Repeat for 3-4 minutes, then rest your head in your hands, relax, and take deep breaths before lifting your head. - Stretching is an excellent way to relieve tension and stress. Stretching will release tension from your neck and back. - Stop and think about a situation or place that makes you happy. This is rather like a recess or time out. By thinking pleasant thoughts your stress level can be dramatically lowered. - Slow down. Rushing can cause your stress levels to rise. Plan your appointements and commitments so that you have ample time to get from point a to b. Start your day by leisurely getting dressed and applying your makeup. This will set the tone for your day and help keep you de-stressed. - Vitamins can be a great help in reducing stress. Take a multi-vitamin daily. Have B Stress vitamins on hand for those very busy or stressful days. Eat foods high in magnesium, Vitamin C, and B5. - Reduce your caffeine intake. - Seek calmness. If the living room feels chaotic and stressful then take five minutes and remove yourself to somewhere tranquil and peaceful. It could be a deck, your bedroom, or your front lawn. - Music is a wonderful stress reliever. Put on your favourite cd and sit still and listen for at least 15 minutes, 1/2 hour is even better. Playing music while you accomplish your tasks can also reduce stress. - Carry your favorite bottle of essential oil in your purse. When stress feels like its about to get the better of you. Open the cap and inhale deeply. Camomile and lavender are universal stress busters but you can choose any calming oil that appeals to you. - Breath deep - breathe up from the bottom of your feet through your body and up to your third eye [between your eyebrows]. When you inhale imagine your body melting away. Deep breathing can stop stress in it's tracks.

Don't let stress wither you, stay cool as a cucumber and beat the heat. When ever things are beginning to feel overwhelming, stop and take care of yourself using these helpful tips. -estatejewelryinternational
