No one likes feeling stress, it’s a horrible feeling to feel when it is constant and intense. So how do you stop it?

  • Music

Not only does music sound good, it can be a great distraction. Whether you turn on the tunes to listen to something up beat to help you feel rejuvenated. Or you put something smoothing on. Slow-paced instrumental music can induce the relaxation response by helping lower blood pressure and heart rate as well as stress hormones or also nature sounds can be very calming, such as raindrops.

  • Physical contact.

Having sex and orgasmings can help relieve stress and tension. So does cuddling and kissing. The physical contact really does help reduce stress.  This can help lower blood pressure and heart rate, both of which are physical symptoms of stress.

  • Practice mindfulness

Mindfulness describes the act of being 100% present in the moment. Practising this act can help combat negative and anxious thoughts which can then lead to help stop stress. You can practice mindfulness in different ways, for example journalling, yoga and taking walks.

  • Learn to avoid procrastination

Stress can be as a result of feeling of control. Therefore by staying on top of priorities, you will avoid feeling the need to catch up and feel out of control.  By getting in the habit of making a to-do list organized by priority, giving yourself realistic deadlines and working your way down the list. You are likely to improve your stress levels and overall feel better.

These tips often involve getting your mind away from the source of stress. Mindfulness, music and physical intimacy can all work to relieve anxiety — and they will improve your overall mood.
