What are some ways to relieve mental stress?
I am going to write here, the immediate ways to relieve the random bouts of stress that we face irregularly, but if the stress is a regularly recurring thing, you need a specialist as it may be a symptom of depression or other such long-term issues. The smart thing to do then is to acknowledge it and ask for professional help.
Now, here’s what helps me calm my nerves,
Detach yourself from the stressful environment immediately
Find an empty room (or your car), lock it, put your favorite playlist on, and sing along!
Meditate / Chant something, anything (even your favorite person’s name will work!)
Take a bath/shower
Go to a nearby garden and walk barefoot on grass
These are a few buffer tips which may or may not work depending on your preferences:
Drink a warm beverage.
The most important rule is – GET OFF OF THE INTERNET, DISCONNECT FROM YOUR SMARTPHONE/LAPTOP until you calm yourself.
