  • Best destressor I've ever learned was mindful square breathing.
  • Finding ways to de-stress is so important!
  • walking has always been a good stress buster for me. I need to get back in my routine again. No excuses.
  • I hit the treadmill.
  • Hot bath with fragrant Epsom salts and a good book is my ultimate stress buster. So much so that I installed an extra wide, extra deep jacuzzi tub when I remodeled the bathroom. It's my favorite room in the house...inviting and relaxing. Every home deserves a tranquil sanctuary.
  • I do get 3 out of 7 as a daily way of living. Talking to friends sure helps!
  • walking is a great stress buster for me, I am going to try the other ideas.
  • Love these ideas. Will use these this week.
  • I do take walks.....
  • I retired from the failing city school system. That was the greatest stress reducer ever known to man. I then started healing from the stress-induced conditions I had started to develop, and I'm sure it had a beneficial effect on my blood sugar level. Other stress reducers are watching my cats do crazy and cute things, walking and admiring peoples' gardens, doing some work in my garden, online retail therapy, etc.

    I taught Stress Reduction workshops for over 20 years, and created these 22 "stress reduction quickies" that are very effective and take only thirty seconds to three minutes to do. The best way to use this video is to set aside two hours (you may not need that much time, depending on how long you "unwind") and go through the entire sequence in the order they are presented, noticing at the end which exercises had the greatest effect on you, and then practicing these throughout the day and, especially, in highly stressful periods. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOmvSQFJgv

  • Perfect timing! THX!
  • I started reading to reduce stress. It works! Last week would have been another stressful week but it wasn't because I was reading and loving it. I love to read but stopped because of life making me so stressed out. Now it is all I want to do. I'm so glad to find my enjoyment again. It is a wonderful feeling to just drift away in my book to new places and adventures. RELAXING!!!

    Exercise has always been a great stress reliever. Gran used to lift all her scatter rugs, hang them on the washing line and batter the life and dust from them with the carpet beater when things were annpying her. Much more effective than using a punch bag at the gym. When she felt better the house was cleaner too
  • Walking outside at work is a fantastic way to deal with all the stupid people. Only issue is sometime people cannot keep up with me as i stride along waving my arms around. Always makes me feel better.
