Stress is a part of everyday life. But, there are a few techniques you can use (besides wind chimes) that can help you reduce stress and live a more relaxed life.
1. Try a magic potion. Ok, it isn’t really magic but the potion part does work. A study at Duke University in Durham, NC, found homeopathy effective in quelling anxiety disorders. So what potion works? Try stress formulas such as Nerve Tonic (from Hyland) or Sedalia (from Boiron) found at your local health food store. Remember, always consult with a doctor before starting any regime.
2. Practice smiling. Yes, smiling. Studies have shown people who smile in the mirror at themselves for a single minute (yes, time yourself) feel better and more relaxed throughout the day. So brush your teeth and then crack a smile.
3. Schedule your time to be stressed. Set aside an hour a day to worry. As your day progresses, write down everything that is making you stress out or worry. Then, at the end of the day, sit down for an hour and review each note and focus on how you can resolve the issue. This exercise does wonders for relaxation.
Wind chimes always help soothe the mind, body and soul. But, these three techniques can help you when away from your wind chimes.
