Apartment Living BlogFitness & Style › Stress Relief

Feeling a little overwhelmed?  Need to relax?  Don’t we all.  So many things about living in an apartment can cause large amounts of unwanted stress.  (What kind of stress is wanted I wonder…)  Anything from moving, to cleaning, to roommates can cause you to feel like you just can’t take it anymore!  What to do?  Don’t panic, we have some ideas.

One stress reliever I found to be credited across the board is to get active!  Go for a run, do some jumping jacks, or go hit a punching bag. Physical activity releases endorphins, which are the good-feeling hormones in your brain.   Chances are, after a few minutes of pounding the pavement (or the bag) you’re bound to start feeling better.

When you’re stressed, laughing may seem like the very last thing you want to do.  But believe it or not, it will help!  So read a joke or two, or watch a funny movie that you know always makes you laugh.  Once you get going, the stress will melt away.

 

Talk to someone!  Take time to sit down with a friend or relative that you trust and just get everything off of your chest!  You’ll feel amazing afterward just having someone to listen to you.

Get some sleep!  A little shut eye will relax you immediately. 

 

Listen to some relaxing music.  Music is the best medicine.  Find something soft from your favorite playlist, close your eyes and let the music do the work.

Most of all, just relax!
