In this crazy time we are living in, it is essential to find ways to relax and de-stress. The world’s situation is changing every day. There are fear and worry in the world.
I have experienced various symptoms that are closely related to being stressed.
In a time where it is vital to stay healthy, one way to stay healthy is not to stress or be tense. This is not an easy task.
One primary way I have found to de-stress is to take time for me. I have been quarantining with my family. This means being in close quarters with others.
What you do with your time is entirely up to you. One option is to read a fiction book. Fiction books can allow you to escape to a different world.
For just part of the day, you can be in a world without the stressors of your current world.
I have also found that writing has helped me. It is better to get your feelings out and not keep them bottled up. If you are unable to talk to your loved ones about it, write it down. No one has to see it, but this will allow you to get your feelings out of your mind.
Do something creative. Drawing or coloring is quite relaxing. You can put music on or watch a show while you do it. If you are doing this activity as a relaxing activity, make sure others know not to disturb you.
Get outside. The fresh air will be good. The sunshine will provide you with natural vitamin D. Just remember to distance yourself from others and be safe.
My final suggestion is to not look at the news all the time. I have gotten into the habit of looking at the news in the morning and evening. This allows me to know what is going on in the world but not get overwhelmed or stressed about the state of the world.
