Everyone has stress in their lives. But not everyone realizes that stress is a killer. Stress releases poison into your system in the form of dangerous hormones. We need an outlet for that stress, a way to let go. Personally, I go on walks when I’m feeling frazzled. I love to go for a walk in the woods or even just walk down my neighborhood street. Everyone has different ways to unwind, so whether you like to read, listen to music, or exercise, try to become more aware of when you are stressed and try a relaxing activity. Prayer is also a wonderful way to release stress because you enter into a state of mediation. I will cover some of the various methods of meditation in later posts and videos.
Tip to Take Away
Take action! We have a lot of good ideas, we even watch great motivational things, but the biggest thing stumbling block of most of us is that we don’t take action. Yogi Berra once said, “when you come to a fork in the road, take it!” So, the next time you are feeling stressed, try switching gears and do something that will help you unwind.
