are you stressed from Covid, the Rioting and the news? Here are Some Helpful tips to help relieve and ease your stress!
During these stressful times that have affected all of us due to Covid and the recent riots and discord around our country, the amount of stress created can sometimes feel daunting. I received a call yesterday from a family member who was feeling a little sad about all of this. I decided that today’s blog should be about de-stressing, positive vibes and spreading the love.
I can honestly say that although I certainly get stressed and feel it at times, I remain positive, upbeat and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us every day. This is essential to have peace in my days. During stressful times, I always know that no matter what, it can always be worse and the feeling at that moment is not the end all be all! This too shall pass and tomorrow will always be a better day.
Throughout the years, I have always shared with those in my life the importance of finding their “yoga”. It doesn’t necessarily mean you have to actually do yoga, but you need do something that makes you happy, brings you peace and relieves you of stress. Moving your body is key not only to relieving stress, but moving your body is important for good heart health as well and strong bones.
Find your yoga! Take a brisk walk or go for a run, swim, play golf or tennis, workout to strengthen your muscles and bones. If you are concerned with going to the back to your gym or studio, there are online yoga, pilates, dance, aerobics, and spin classes available. Last but certainly not least, make sure stretch your body, take in deep breaths and release and let go of your stress!
My last piece of advice is to stop watching the news and step away from the media created stress. Go outside and breath fresh air and just move your body. I know from personal experience that you will feel better for doing this. So have a happy Wednesday and go get your yoga on!
