Stress can RUN your life if you let it.
Stress is like a nagging companion on a really long road trip. Sometimes it’s helpful and makes you grow as a person, but other times you want to slam on the brakes and say “enough … get out!”
Plus, stress leads to complications like chronic disease, inability to lose weight quickly, and other undesirable conditions.
Luckily, there is a middle ground and you don’t have to go far to find it. Instead of allowing stress to blow your fuses, make losing belly fat impossible, and wreck your health, ease off the gas and follow these 10 DIY Relaxations Techniques.
1. Take Deep, Slow Breaths
The fastest way to relieve stress is to take a deep breath. Actually take several deep breaths and focus your attention on your breathing. Deep breathing stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system which calms you down. As a result, stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline normalize. When these hormones are in check, your immune system and overall health improves.
