Stress Management Tips For The Stressed:

  • Exhale. Breathe deeply. When you feel yourself getting stressed out, take a moment and just breathe. If you’re in the office, remove yourself from the stressful situation and give yourself time to calm down. This not only improve your mood, it prevents you from harsh words or actions that might bring regret later.
  • Relax. When you’re stressed, your muscles tense up and can make your joints ache. You grit your teeth which can also make your jaw hurt. Relaxing eases your anxiety. Think of pleasant things and try and make it a habit. Always remember that it’s not the end of the world. Focus on your good fortune and not just on the stressful things.
  • Exercise. Regular exercise relaxes your body and mind. It also keeps you in great shape.
  • Realize that some things are not always in your control. This can bring on major stress, but it’s a futile reaction. You just have to do the best with what you can control and accept the rest. It’s a hard one for most of us though and something l continually struggle with. When you get on a plane, you give up control to the pilot for instance. You can meditate, pray or do some form of stress control, but ultimately you are in someone else’s hand.
  • Put your financial life in order. It’s no secret that monetary difficulties are major causes of stress. By spending less than you make, you can start to knock down your bills and save money for your future, putting your mind at ease and relieving stress.
  • Brush up on financial knowledge with these great reads.
  • Pets. This is not something l would recommend for everyone. Pet have been known to improve our quality of life. They can ease depression and are wonderful companions. That being said, they are great responsibilities and should not be taken lightly. They require constant care and can cost a lot of money. You should only get one if you are truly ready for one and can provide the love, affection, care and cost that they come with.

  1. I can definitely use that neck massager and the essential oils. I love to just smell the essential oils and automatically I feel my body relaxing. Yoga is my ideal method as well. In fact I would love to become a yoga teacher to teach others about relaxing. Thanks for sharing…

    • One of my older sisters has that neck massager and l laughed at her. She didn’t say a thing, just had me try it and l was hooked :-). I also love the smells and it just makes you relax whether you want to or not doesn’t it? :-). I need to really get into yoga. I did do it on the Wii for a bit :-). Thanks for reading.

    • I thought about it because l am currently visiting my MIL and l treated her to a Spa day. The poor woman needed it and has such foot pain. She got a full body with essential oils and one hour just for her feet. It’s the best gift for her so l ordered a couple of these for her as well for the house.

    • You chose well :-). There is nothing quite like a massager for the short term at home if one can’t get to a spa. We need some calmness and relaxation in our lives don’t we ?

    • Self care really is important. Especially for women. I think being natural nurturers often means neglecting oneself. Even the rock needs pampering :-).

  2. Ive always seen the stress bombs but I have never tried them before. i need they release color but is there something side the ball that helps you eel less stressed. I never used breathing/meditation before but I know run a group where I use it and I think that it can be helpful.

    • Most are stuffed with mineral oils etc. Nice and relaxing stuff. I think breathing and meditation definitely helps. I have my hubby do that but he needs it more often than he does for sure :-).

  3. These are all great tips. I own a diffuser and I always have the smell of lemongrass flowing through it. It helps to put me in a good move and I love it. I also use my foot spa on a weekly bases but I would love a neck massager. That would most def help get rid of stress.

    • Once l tried the neck massager, I really loved it and l can’t believe l was poo poking it! :-). It definitely helps. I am also happy to have found a good manicurist so l can indulge with mani/pedis. I recently found that bamboo scent relaxes me, so l have been using that around the house. It is a wonderful thing to be able to de-stress.

  4. I absolutely love my oil diffuser. Orange and Lemongrass are my 2 fav’s to use with with mine. I sleep better when my diffuser is on and for some reason, my hubby snores less. I really need a new footbath so I can pamper my feet more often. Excellent gift ideas!

    • That’s interesting to hear about your hubby’s reaction to the scents. I just might give it a try as l would welcome that. My husband snores and can sleep at the drop of a hat leaving me wide awake until l can finally sleep with the rhythm :-). Amazing how nice your feet feels with a little pampering, especially if you’re on your feet a lot. Thanks for the hint, I will try it :-).

  5. Great Tips! My sister has gotten me into Essentials Oils and they definitely help when Iā€™m stressed! We are looking into getting a massage chair once we move

    • A massage chair would be awesome. I was going to include one, but it would not have been frugal then :-). It’s amazing though, and can pay for itself several times over. We really do need to relieve stress anyway we can. Sometimes, I’m like stop the world, l wanna get off :-).

    • I love my wireless headphones. I was just looking into getting new ones as mine has been used for a very long time AND my beagle got a hold of it šŸ™‚
