If I had a dollar for the number of times a client has shown up to a session “stressed out,” I’d probably have a couple extra bills to throw around. Stress is a normal part of life; it’s how you manage and deal with it that helps you get on with the joy of living life. Here are some of my favorite stress relief tips; those that have worked for me, and those that I’ve heard work for you.
In reviewing these stress relief tips, keep in mind that I am not a therapist but merely a trainer with a good ear for listening and with a desire to help. Sometimes bigger problems (e.g., grief from loss of a loved one) are best handled via therapy. Either way, these stress relief tips below are no to low-cost, and range from low-tech to high-tech to encourage as many as you as possible to manage your stress levels.
Exercise! Yeah, duh, of course a trainer would say that, and you probably knew this one. But guess what? ANY form of exercise will do just fine. Zumba, weight training, dancing, walking, tennis, jogging, yoga, basketball, whatever. We all have our favorite way to break a sweat.
