Taking the time to work out is so good in helping you chill out and reduce stress. You will be amazed at how easy you will deal with stress in your life by regularly exercising. Try your local (Hot Body) Bootcamp; go for a run, take yourself for a cycle or go for a swim. All of these activities will help you enjoy a stress free life, making it easier for you to chill out a little every day.
Each day take at least 30 minutes out to focus on YOU and chill out. This can be done anytime during your day. Schedule a time where you can fit some ME time in and make sure that you tell your family or friends that you don’t want to be disturbed during this time. By doing this you can relax your body and mind by meditating, reading, taking a bath or any other way that you think would help you chill out.
I know this may sound strange but it’s a proven scientific fact that if you smile when you are feeling stressed it can actually help you relax. If you are having a stressful day at work or at home with the kids then instead of allowing yourself to get more and more stressed, take a moment and smile as if nothing in the world matters. This can actually lower your heart rate and blood pressure and take away the feeling that you want to scream.
4. Positive Thinking
Stop the negative crap and start being more positive. Being in a difficult situation is hard but try to visualise a calm and positive picture where you are in a place that you feel happy and calm. Visualise yourself lying on a beach or walking through a forest. When you use certain techniques in your life that take you to your happy place you will find it easier to relax and chill out. That also goes for the words that you use, stop the negative talk and replace them with positive words that make you feel good. Talk to yourself as if you were your best friend.
Take time out each week to meet up with your friends for a herbal tea. Spending time with the people you care about is always important. Your friends are there to help you get through any difficult situations that you may be dealing with and to advise you in any way that you may need it. Your friends are there to cheer you up and help you to relax and chill out, just as you are there for them.
Once you are able to master chilling out and relaxing, you will find that you will lead a much more peaceful life where you are able to cope with all that life has to offer.
