Stress Management is a key skill we all need to learn to survive in this stress-filled roller coaster ride we call life. While stress at certain levels is good and can bring out the best in you, abnormal, high and prolonged stress levels are a real danger to your health. Stress is often termed `The Silent Killer’ as it can wreak havoc on a person’s emotional and physical health with little or no warning. But, the good news is that, you don’t have to let stress take its toll on your life.
Take control of stress with these surprising stress tips that work wonders to relax and restore your life. In the book `Stress Destroyers – Simple Techniques That Work’, Graham Alexander reveals these and many more great tips:
Breathing: Deep breathing is widely accepted as an effective stress buster. There are many different breathing techniques one can choose, to regulate your breathing and take control of stress. However, the easiest way is to breathe deeply and slowly. Once you learn this, you can adopt any technique you feel comfortable with. I personally love the inhaling and exhaling with alternate nostrils. It also helps cool down your body, which is a plus!
Meditation: Meditation is another widely accepted technique for beating stress. However, the twist given by the author to meditation is interesting. He suggests the traditional sitting method, though tweaks it for chocolate lovers – chocolate meditation. It’s delicious and it works! After all, dark chocolate is also a stress buster. The chocolate meditation involves enjoying the chocolate with eyes closed and identifying the sensations, tastes, feelings, etc.
The Sedona Method: This is a very powerful method and is related to holistic living principles. Basically, you sit in a quiet place and meditate on negative thoughts and decide to remove them from your life, for good. While this does not tell you to ignore something that has happened, it helps you come to peace with a negative event and ward off the negativity surrounding it. You CAN choose when you want to get out of these stressful events and memories, however, the author rightly insists the best time is NOW.
Earthing: This is one simple, straightforward and childish way to get rid of stress. However, don’t discard this method as funny. It works because it feeds your inner child and also because it offers a sense of freedom. All you do is, remove your footwear and walk barefooted!
Hobby: These days most of us are too busy to enjoy our hobbies as much as we’d
like to. Graham Alexander suggests thinking about your favorite pastime, an achievement you reached or a favorite memory. Even if you can’t physically partake of your hobby, it sets your mind on a pleasure path. He recommends following up this session with visualization for best results.
