5 Things to Do When You’re Stressed Out

Clean Your Room. If your room is cluttered, take the time to organize and clean. Being in a messy space is proven to cause psychological stress and anxiety… tidying your space can go a long way if you’re feeling overwhelmed. Tidy home, tidy mind.

Exercise. This one’s kind of a given, but always a sure-fire way to clear your mind and feel better quickly. Whether it’s a trip to the gym, yoga, or a simple walk around the block, get your body moving to get those endorphins flowing!

Write. Sometimes writing out your thoughts can help to sort things out and allow you to realize why you feel a certain way and what you can do to fix it. Grab a piece of paper and don’t think, just write. Jot down the first things that come to your mind.

Give Yourself a Massage or Stretch. If you’re like me, you hold a lot of tension in your shoulders and neck.  Sit or lay down and give yourself a massage, or stretch things out to release the stress that you’re holding in your muscles.

Eat Clean. Stress-eating junk food isn’t a good remedy when you’re overwhelmed about something. Swap out that pizza for a salad, or those chips for a cup of fruit. You’ll feel better physically, which will go a long way in feeling better mentally.
