Stress is an ever-present part of our busy and modern lives, and we are all looking for ways to combat this and de-stress.
We all want to do this in as good and harmless way as possible and so we are looking to do this in as natural a way as possible.
There are many great ways to do this but here we are going to look at some of the best ways possible to achieve this.
Reconnect With Nature
Sometimes we are so tied in and connected to the modern world but we forget that sometimes it’s better to be away from all the hustle and bustle and reconnect with nature. We easily forget how much things like modern noise pollution affect us.
It only takes a trip out hill-walking or hiking to reach an area that’s far enough away from the road to realize once you remove all the background noise how peaceful it can be in the silence. This can give you the peace and quiet to really get away from it all and recharge.
Turn off Those Screens
Cell phones, tablet PCs, TV etc. There are screens everywhere these days and we can rarely escape them unless we take active steps to deliberately do this. It’s important to specifically set aside time to be able to have screen-free time, this could be especially useful to do in the evening as it gives you some quality time to yourself and also helps eliminate sleeplessness.
One way of being sure to get some time without your screen is to deliberately leave it behind when you go out, pack your bag in a way that it’s not with you.
Use of Scent
Scent can be a useful way of helping you relax. Being used to create a nice and relaxing aroma can really set the mood of your home in the right way. Have a look at these best essential oils to get an idea of what each of them does. It’s really amazing how much of a difference this can make.
Get Enough Sleep
Being that little bit tired or even a lot tired can really affect your mood and can make everything much more of a chore. Work or looking after the kids becomes so much more of a challenge and this can lead to life becoming that little bit more stressful. So it’s important to try and regularly get 7-8 hours of sleep a night and you’ll be amazed at how much this increases your mood.
Set Working Hours
Don’t overwork yourself, this seems like obvious advice, however it’s easy to do these days. We can work easily from home as it’s possible to access emails from home and get that extra bit done.
You can even use your phone to do it as well and this means that you can end up never being unplugged from your work and you never fully enjoy your social and family life. Take time to turn them off or even make sure you don’t bring your work phone out with you all the time.Lastly, I'm starting to tell other women about a health newsletter that I've benefited immensely from and that I highly recommend.

It's completely free and I've learned soooo much from it!
