How To Deal With Stress

Since April is Stress Awareness Month and the Covid lockdown measures seem to be lifting I thought it would be a good idea to reflect on how to take care of yourself during these difficult times.

The Corona Virus has been around for over a year now and during hard times stress levels will naturally rise as the level of uncertainty increases. The pandemic is here for the long haul and we need to do all that we can as a community to help fight the spread of it. What we need to remember though, is that we cannot control anything that is beyond us. Spiralling out of control is no good for anyone therefore we would advise you to focus on what you can control; your own thoughts and actions.

“There is no point stressing over something you have no control over.  Move on and grow stronger.”

Here are some tips to deal with stress:

Exercise – This releases endorphins that naturally reduce the stress hormone and improve your sleep cycle and self-image.

Light a candle – Candles are known to be calming and relaxing, certain scents such as lavender and orange blossom can help reduce stress through calming scents (aromatherapy).

Write it down – Do not focus on the negative things, rather keep a diary of what went well and things you are grateful for on a daily basis. This will help you see the positive side and reduce anxiety levels.

Spend time with friends and family – that be it virtually. Spending time with friends and family is proven to be a natural stress reliever as oxytocin (the love hormone) is released. Support is important for living a balanced life and having strong social ties can help you get through stressful times.

All of these activities can and will help you reduce stress as they force you to live in the moment. Do not worry about things out of your control and learn to live in the moment. Most importantly, do not let stress consume you as it is not worth it, have fun with your daily life.

Our mission is to empower 1000 women to ‘climb their mountain’ so that they break down their barriers and reclaim their power. Join us. For more details about how we can help you to ‘climb your mountain’ – check out our free events here.
