How To Manage Everyday Stress

 By: Maliboo DeReyna
Often times stress will manifest when we carry over yesterday's
concerns into our present day concerns. An accumulation will
almost always end up in a high stress level. Therefore, we must
be able to "dump" all of our concerns from the previous day or
days and concentrate wholly on our today.

Stress Busting Tip #1

Resolve right now to release every thought from yesterday and be
only mindful of the now.... this thought only...this
breath...this moment. Take in three very deep breaths and slowly
release each one.

At the same time feel each and every concern, each and every
problem, and each and every unresolved moment, begin to
dissolve. You can deal with them at a later time. For now, you
are only to be in this very moment.

Now go to your inner quiet place. Go deep inside to a place
where you feel that you are at peace and then just relax and

all over again until you have reached your inner place of calm.

When you don't get the number of hours of sleep that you need
each night, you are only setting yourself up for additional

Limit the amount of salt, sugar, caffeine and alcohol in your
diet. Drink plenty of clean, pure water each day and do at least
moderate exercise each day. This will breathe new life into your
skin, hair and will nourish all of your vital organs.

Take time to breathe properly! Take deep belly breathes to send
pure oxygen to all of your body. Laugh and then laugh some more.
It is food for the soul! Spend time doing the things that please
you most. Engage in healthy and fulfilling relationships and
work on problems that would erode the closeness that you have
with someone special.

When we are content and living a balanced life everyday stresses
seem to pale in comparison. We are better equipped to deal with
the unexpected.
