Stress can be good and stress can be terrible! On one hand it can become a motivating factor creating positive action but it can also affect your lifestyle in a negative way.
Stress hormones are released by your body during highly stressful situations and they can cause your cells to age, making you look older than you really are. In severe cases, stress can cause disease which can lead to death.
Knowing HOW to handle stressful situations in your life is key to maintaining your stress levels. Therefore, stress relief is essential in keeping a healthy mind and body. Here are a few safe ideas you can use as a way to manage your stress levels.
Natural Stress Relief
- Soak in Your Hot Tub - The warm water of a hot tub has been shown to help balance your nervous system and keep it in balance. It's believed that warm water immersion encourages the release of the hormone called dopa-mine. Dopa-mine is released by the parasympathetic nervous system in our bodies in order to combat the effects of harmful stress.
- Aromatherapy - Aromatherapy relieves stress by using scents that can calm you down. Aromatherapy uses essential oils extracted from plants. These essential oils are the main ingredients used to reduce stress. The scent of essential oils sends a message to the olfactory receptors in your nose, thus soothing your anxiety.
- Pets - In our opinion, there aren't many more rewarding stress relief options than taking care of your pet animals and treating them like they're one of your closest friends. Interacting with your pet after a busy day at work greatly lowers your stress levels. You'll receive better results in relieving your stress by spending more time bonding with your pet. The most common pets used for stress relief are dogs but you may find other pets such as a fish or a cat to accomplish the same thing.
Playing With Pets
Playing with your pet is one of the best methods for stress relief. Studies show it lowers your blood pressure, thus slowing down the production of your body's stress hormone called cortisol, which is linked to anxiety and depression. Spending time with your pet can also increase your body's production of another hormone called Oxytocin which is associated with relaxation and happiness.
