Stress seems to be a given in most people’s lives. Between working long work hours, an increased cost of living, and day-to-day family obligations, it’s no wonder why I feel burnt out by the end of the week. 

But I know I’m not alone. In fact, 48% of people in the United States say that stress has a negative impact on their personal and professional lives. And a whopping 77% of people say they experience physical ailments due to stress.

Although I can't cut all stress from my life, I know I can find ways to manage it. Knowing how to reduce stress in healthy ways without resorting to drugs or alcohol is vital to maintaining good health.

Unmanaged stress can wreak havoc on the mind and body. Sometimes stress is evident, but other times, I might not even know I’m stressed out, until I find myself snapping at others or on the verge of having an anxiety attack while waiting for the train.

But keeping stress at bay doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming. Here are four ways to reduce stress and improve overall well-being.

4 Easy Ways to Reduce Stress

Whenever I escape the constant noise of the city and get out into nature, I feel more relaxed and centered. There’s a reason for that.

Each living thing is biologically in-tune with the Earth’s natural frequency called, the Schumann resonance. When in-tune, the mind and body feel more relaxed. But, artificial frequencies emitted from modern technologies can interfere with body/Earth connection, causing stress and anxiety. 

Listening to music tuned to the same frequency of the Earth, 432Hz, is one way to bring the mind and body back in-tune with the Earth’s natural vibrations. 

Another way to reduce stress is through wearable technology that’s designed lower stress by channeling the Earth’s beneficial and natural frequencies back into the body.

2. Practice Simple Yoga Poses

Yoga is a mind-body practice that’s been around for thousands of years. It brings together a variety of body poses called, “asanas,” breathing techniques, and meditation. And it’s more popular than ever.

36.7 million people in the United States now practice yoga – and for a good reason.

Studies show that practicing yoga helps reduce stress and lower blood pressure

It can also improve mood, reduce depression, and combat fatigue.

The beauty of yoga is its accessibility. There’s no need fold into a pretzel and balance on one foot for twenty minutes to enjoy yoga. I practice simple postures like forward bends shoulder stretches while sitting at my desk.

Next time when stress creeps in, I'll brew some green tea. Studies show that drinking green tea has a calming effect on the body.

Green tea contains the amino acid, theanine, which helps regulate the “feel good” brain chemicals, serotonin, and dopamine.

Sipping green tea promotes a sense of peace and tranquility by increasing alpha wave activity in the brain.

Even the simple act of heating up water can combat stress and disrupt negative thoughts.

4. Write it All Down

Journaling isn’t just for teenagers; jotting down thoughts and feelings has some real stress-busting benefits.

Writing can be a healthy tool for processing negative emotions caused by stress. 

Whenever I write about my current sources of stress, I tend to feel better. Journaling gives me the time I need to sort through painful emotions before they can impact my life.

I also make time to write about what’s going well in my life. Expressing gratitude gives me some healthy perspective about what’s important.
