5 Therapeutic Things To Do If You're Stressed

During these difficult times it is easy to get anxious and stressed about current situations, so here are a few things to do if you're stressed.

  1. Take an hour to meditate or do yoga.

Yoga is intensely physical, so concentrating on what your body is doing can help bring calmness to the mind. Yoga helps you focus on your breathing and help you detach yourself from your thoughts.

Studies reveal that meditation reduces the density of brain tissue associated with anxiety and worrying.

You can meditate or do yoga with simple YouTube videos.

2. Draw or colour.

Just pop in some headphones and sit down and draw in response to your playlist. This is a good exercise to let your creative juices flow without restraint and is also a good way to let all your trapped-up thought and emotions in your mind.

3. Spend some alone time in nature or outside.

Spending time in nature is a proven stress-reducer. The outdoors and the fresh helps relieve the mind of stressful thoughts and lift your spirits, the intake of oxygen helps you to feel better overall.
