10 Simple Ways to Avoid or Reduce Stress ~ KayCee Enterprises

Usually, when you’re younger you have no stress – well I know that’s false but it’s a fallacy most people have. With age grows stress – family, work, bills…you name it. unhappy-worker

Here are 10 simple ways you can use to avoid or reduce stress before you totally lose it.

  1. No one is perfect. Don’t expect to always do everything right or you’re destined to get high blood pressure. You’ll constantly stress yourself out when things don’t go as expected.

  2. Improve your time management so you don’t feel stressed. Break up tasks into small chunks.

  3. Keep stress at bay by facing all situations with confidence and a positive attitude.

  4. Save time and banish stress by focusing and concentrating, delegating, and scheduling time for yourself. Outsource whenever possible. See my post on outsourcing

  5. Manage your commitments by not over-committing or under-committing. Don’t commit to what’s not important to you.work

  6. Exercise to manage your cortisone levels (stress levels) or it could cost you your health and money in the future. Try weight lifting, walking, or yoga to reduce stress. Oh! There’s also Tai chi (I LOVE Tai chi)

  7. Get a pet to reduce stress. The unconditional love of a dog or cat helps one get through tough days. Not to mention petting that soft fur; just take time out to pet and play with your pet.

  8. “Never hurry and never worry.”― E.B. White, Charlotte’s Web Take it slow. Remember the turtle beat the hare.

  9. Keep in mind that a person with a calm and well-balanced life will not be perceived as a threat to the outside world. “Catch more bees with honey than vinegar.”

  10. Incorporate breathing exercises throughout your day. When you start feeling overwhelmed, take a deep breath, hold it for 8 count and release for 5 count. Rinse and repeat 3 times.
