Is stress wearing you thin?
Besides getting a mobile massage here in Tampa, here are a few suggestions for keeping the stress levels low.
Manage your Mind:
Analyze your stress—you can start by separating your stressors into 2 categories:
Things you have control over
Things you don’t have control over
If you can do something about it—then do it! If not—then accept it and move on. You will find giving yourself permission to move on can relieve a lot of the quiet, self-inflicted stress you are many times not even aware of that’s swimming around in your brain.
Take a break and relax a few times every day. Some ideas to help you relax during a busy day would be to take 5 minutes, stand-up and invert your head so that you are touching your toes, or as close as you can get. Then stand up tall and reach for the ceiling. Roll your shoulders back over and over—wiggle your fingers, and shake out your arms. Repeat the cycle 2 more times. This is a good short break to do about every half hour if you are working at a desk.
Lie in a quiet room on your back twice a day for 10 minutes. It’s amazing how getting out of an upright position with all the weight of your body moving into a prone position on the floor can fully energize you. You can even meditate during this time by taking deep breaths repeatedly.
