10 Tips to Stress Less & Live More
“Slow down. Enjoy the simple pleasures in life.”
I have the flu since Saturday and my days were filled with chills, sweats, aching muscles. I had no energy for anything except staying in my bed. Fortunately today I am feeling more alive again :-).
Although everyone will get the flu from time to time, I do believe that everything happens for a reason. ‘Peace of mind‘ and ‘stress‘ seem to be very popular topics the last days. Is that a coincidence? I received newsletters with subjects as ‘Low Stress day’ and ‘The Busy person’s guide to reducing Stress‘. These ‘signals’ reminded me of the busy and hectic past months.
So … to remind myself again “there is more in life than increasing its speed.” A perfect time to share some useful tips to stress less! There are undoubtedly 100s of things you can do, but as a start herewith the ones that are really having a positive & relaxing impact on me.
- Do or share something that makes you laugh!
- Do one thing at a time.
- Think progress, not perfection!
- Say NO when you need to.
- Cook a meal from scratch.
- Tell someone you love them.
- Play your favorite song.
- Do less by focusing exclusively on what’s important.
- Be proud of Who You Are!
- Celebrate when things go well.
