Here are 8 tips to relax and remain stress-free:
1. Eat healthy. Without a balanced diet, the chemical structure of the brain can become unbalanced resulting in anxiety, depression, sleep deprivation, etc.
It is vital to get required nutrients every day. Do not over-eat or under-eat, rather be sure to eat within a healthy calorie range for your weight.
2. Sleep. Make sure to get a good night’s sleep without interruption. Such interruption causes a disturbance in R.E.M. sleep, which results in a “low quality” sleep of sorts.
Make sure to allow enough time for sleep. For example, if it takes a half-an-hour to fall asleep, a lot eight-and-a-half hours for sleep.
3. Exercise. While it may not be necessary to sign up for a gym membership, be sure to exercise regularly. Whether you enjoy walking, running, yoga, dancing, weight training, or sports, be sure to engage in some physical activity every day.
4. Be social. (But not too social.) Sitting around alone or cramped in an isolated office without release is emotionally unhealthy. Make a concentrated effort to spend time regularly with positive people. This does more to combat stress than most people realize.
A word of caution: Being social does not mean becoming over involved and adding stress. Socialization should be an enjoyable activity, not a commitment or stress.
