Let’s talk a little about resolutions, specifically new year resolutions for stress relief.
Most people look to make resolutions when it’s the new year – but the truth is that it’s never a bad time to make resolutions for stress relief.
Sometimes, a declaration of intention is just what you need to make a claim to your new stress-resilient life.
It’s a new day. It’s time for a new YOU!
THIS could bring you hope — and clear action steps!
There are beautiful sights to be seen, wonderful people to love and incredible moments of joy to be had.
You’ve got your health. There is nothing to hold you back from loving life.
What’s that? What do you mean those things are so hard to come by when you have so much going on?
You say you want these things but you don’t have time to slow down and relax?
It is true!
There are many things going on in our lives today.
We simultaneously try to focus on our families, our jobs, our health and so much more. While these concerns are important, making time to de-stress must be a top priority.
Better still, making time to avoid constant stress makes even more sense.
We have become walking stress-bots being controlled by the puppet strings of personal and societal expectations. It is time to completely regroup and re-balance!
A list of resolutions for stress relief is truly the only resolution you need to live a happier and healthier life.
When stress takes over priorities shift to a fault.
We experience health issues like headaches and hair loss. We tell ourselves we are doing a great job of multi-tasking while fatigue takes over and poor eating habits ensue.
The kids are grouchy because we aren’t at our best. Marriages wane as we pass each other on the fly.
Weight gain pops up out of nowhere and memories begin to dwindle because there is simply too much to remember.
Our poor bodies and relationships suffer in silence until the breaking point rears its ugly head. It doesn’t have to be this way.
To de-stress or avoid stress, try these ideas on for size.
- Set immediate boundaries for your day.
- It is important not to overbook or over commit. Living life to the fullest doesn’t mean cramming in a thousand things with nothing left to give. Living life to the fullest and accomplishing all that needs to be done takes common sense and a little organization.
- Part of everyday should always be filled with time for joy and ease.
Our roles become more significant when we take time for ourselves. Deter illness, negative relationship issues and anxieties by accepting yourself as the only one person you so beautifully are. It’s time to kiss chronic, crippling stressors good-bye!
