3 Easy Tips to Beat Stress!

October 4, 2016 Kelli Hughart


Tip 1.   Learn Belly Breathing.  Ok It has different names (like diaphragmatic breathing) but belly breathing is how people remember it and learn it easiest, so that’s the term I use.  Shallow breathing doesn’t nourish and relax the body.  If you are new to this you may have to start slow, as sometimes it can make people dizzy.  Go slow and steady. Put your hands on your belly and as you slowly (controlled breath) breath in,  inflate the belly, as you breathe in. Then control your breathing on the way out and feel your belly contract. Warning you may sound like Darth Vadar you are are doing it correct. this cool!  (This is the shortened version of course)

Tip 2. Nature Sounds or Nature Time.  A few minutes in nature can really help you destress,  reset and also help you get clarity on issues.  So grab a cup of herbal tea and sit outside for a few minutes each day and listen to the hawks, squirrels, and crickets. On days you can’t get outside, at least listen to nature sounds, youtube has freebies or look for something on Spotify or the like.  Work up to getting outside more and more!

Tip 3. Try  Aromatherapy! Aromatherapy can be a great way to relax and destress for a few minutes each day. Getting a quality diffuser and using oils like Bergamot, Lemon, Rosemary, Orange or Ylang Ylang (not all at once, try one at a time to see what suits you) work wonders.  Its subtle, subtle doesn’t mean non effective though. (If you are sensitive to scent skip this step and take a nap, meditate or rest your eyes for a few minutes each day!
