Stress needs a release valve.
Bottling up stress, day after day, with no outlet, wreaks havoc on our minds and physical well-being.
Exercise (any type of movement really) is a great way to relieve stress. It might seem obvious, but obvious answers are usually the most straightforward and effective methods of action.
Mediation or moving meditations like Yoga is another go-to for me. Especially when anxiety is tagging along with stress.
I’ve heard vlogging (i.e. talking to a camera) is therapeutic, even if you don’t end up sharing it. But this isn’t something I have explored (yet).
Doing something fun (and completely unrelated to what’s stressing you out) is also a great release. Sometimes all we need is simply a break.
