Top Three Ways to Reduce Stress Today

If you are looking for a new way of handling stress and anxiety, you are not alone. According to the WHO, 1 in 13 people suffer from anxiety. Here are three easy ways to de-stress your life.

Many Americans are searching for new ways to help reduce stress in their daily lives. These three approaches can foster calm moments in times of stress.

1. Keep a journal. When negative thoughts are allowed to circulate in one’s head, it can manifest in overwhelm and negative self-talk, inducing stress. Try spending ten minutes a day writing down what is on your mind – both good and bad. For the negative, identify and acknowledge those thoughts as a means of releasing them. Follow with intentional positive journaling and gratitude. Over time, the things that were sources of stress may lose their impact and solutions can become more accessible. Journaling can be done in a notebook or in a journaling app such as “Five Minute Journal” or “Day One.” Regardless of the medium, journaling can be a powerful tool to fight anxiety.

2. Dedicate time to wellness. Many times people find themselves spending days accomplishing tasks for others: work, family, or friends. While that time spent can range from necessary to fulfilling, it’s important to make sure to make time to do what is necessary and fulfilling personally. Neglecting one’s self can cause health and wellness to suffer, which creates a foothold for a weakened immune system, low esteem, self-doubt, and stress. Try reserving 30 minutes a day to do something that improves mental, emotional, or physical state. Thirty minutes of exercise, walking, reading, yoga, or meditation can make a significant impact on wellness in the short and long term. Regardless of the activity, the key to unlocking the benefits is consistency. Protect time each day to spend on wellness.

3. Try CBD products. Mother nature sometimes plays a part in stress management. There are times brain chemistry is out of sync with external factors and keeps cortisol, the stress hormone the body produces, too high for too long. Try using a CBD product as a natural means of reducing stress. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of several cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, the cannabinoid associated with the mental high cannabis is popularly known for, CBD is the non-intoxicating compound that is gaining traction as an alternative supplement for managing anxiety, pain, inflammation, and other conditions. A company spokesperson for Terrapin Select, a leading online retailer for CBD products, states “CBD in and of itself is a valuable tool in mood regulation. There are several CBD products that contain additional natural and plant derived anxiety fighting ingredients such as Ashwagandha, L-Theanine, and Vitamin D3. All of this together creates a way to help the body self-regulate and promote calm.”
