five tips to reduce stress right now

Stress is one of those things that everyone has to deal with at some point or another.

You stress about something in your life or sometimes you aren't even sure what you are stressing about, you just feel stressed in general. Even happy times can cause stress… weddings, holidays even vacations! These past few years I feel like I have finally found some ways that really help me stop stress in it's tracks. Some days it's a lot easier than others to control stress and keep it at bay, and some days it feels a bitter harder to manage. Either way I just refer back to these tips and feel the stress melt away! 

Here are five tips to reduce stress right now.

1. Go for a walk. I can't tell you how many times I've felt like stress was taking over my mind… and then I went for a walk and I could feel it melting away. Even if you can't get away for a long walk even going in the parking lot at work and doing a few laps will help. It's the perfect way to clear your mind and you get feel good endorphins from the exercise.  

2. Write it out. Write a list of everything that is stressing you out. You don't even have to take any action on your list. Just writing it out gives me clarity.

3. Add RESCUE stress relief products to your daily routine. RESCUE helps you stress less, stay calm and in control. They are Natural/Homeopathic and developed by a doctor. I love that they are gentle and safe and are non-habit-forming with no side effects. RESCUE comes in RESCUE Pastilles, RESCUE Sleep Liquid Melts and RESCUE Pearls. They are available now at CVS, Walgreens, Whole Foods, Sprouts. I found mine by the register at Sprouts.

Here is a RESCUE coupon for you to use on your next purchase.

4. Talk with a loved one. Talk it out. Share what is stressing you out and brainstorm solutions together. Even if there isn't an immediate solution to be had, just talking about it always makes me feel better.

5. Count your blessings. Take five minutes and think about everything that is going right. I always start with my family. I have a healthy and loving family. I think about how lucky I am to live when and where I do and to be surrounded by so many wonderful people. If it's a happy time that is stressing you out… (hello birthday parties) think about how much fun it's going to be! You can even write yourself little sticky notes of all your blessings and put them on your desk to stay focused and to keep stress away.

  1. Those are some great tips. For me, just a little alone time helps as well. Walking definitely helps too.

  2. I run all the time, and I try to do whatever I can to reduce my stress. There are still some days, when it feels like my head might explode, though.

  3. This sounds like something I need to get to keep in my purse. What an awesome idea.

  4. For me, taking a break from everything to just be with my husband or family always helps me put everything back in perspective. It is hard to find time for that though!

  5. These look interesting I’ve never heard of them before! Really great tips, I could use them for sure! Life can be so stressful!

  6. Great ideas for stress management. I like to box or kickbox to relieve stress. I have a heavy bag in my basement.

  7. Those look interesting enough for me to try. With school, kids, house, church, and work, I feel the stress often. I may need to try those out. Would be better for me than a Dr. Pepper or energy drink which is my normal go to.

  8. I have tried this particular product in the past and was pleasantly surprised how effective it was! Some of my other favorite ways of eliminating or reducing stress are reading, essential oils, hiking, walking alongside the riverfront, and drinking tea, particularly sage or Earl Grey.

  9. Writing has always been my number one source for getting rid of my stress. It’s not always possible lately to sit down and do that, so I’ve taken up puzzle games on my phone. It sounds sillly but the creative thinking helps just expand my mind and let out all the hot air.

  10. We really shouldn’t take life too seriously, after all they say that life is too short. I have to give the Stress Reliever Pastilles a try – it’s piqued my interest.

  11. It was hard with snow and ice, but going for a walk is my top stress reliever. I’m so glad the weather is warming up and now we’ll just deal with showers/rain. If I can’t walk, then turning up music and cleaning the house or dancing really helps!

  12. I usually exercise to reduce my stress. But, I would love to include these pastilles into my routine. Thanks for sharing!

  13. I just learned about the Rescue products, and they are so much fun! I am loving the taste of the pastilles! They made me calmer in a hurry.

  14. I could really go for a walk right now. I have been using Rescue Remedy in the spray form for years to help with my anxiety as I am not of the medication I have been on. I have also used the pet rescue remedy. Works wonders.

  15. Taking a walk and counting my blessings has always been a great help. Other ways I deal with stress? I yell…really loud! 😉

  16. When I’m stressed out, I usually do those things that’s on your list except for the Rescue Pastilles. I will have to check that out.

  17. My favorite way to relieve stress is working out. I try to workout at least three times a week but sometimes I can’t.

  18. Very good tips. I definitely agree with “Take a Walk” – doing this always gets my blood flowing, which helps clear my head.

  19. These are some great tips!! I know for me just walking away and getting alittle air can help aton!!!

  20. Oh I so needed these tips right about now. Is it something with the transition from winter to spring that gets us all stressed out and feeling like we have the weight of the world on our shoulders? I think there might be!
