4 Tips to Relieve Stress

by Patricia Coldiron  
3/13/2015 / Health


You may feel like you should always be in control of your emotions, but you can't ignore the pounding headaches, tight muscles, and short temper that you are suddenly experiencing. Everyone suffers from stress at some point in life, but by following some simple tips, you'll soon be back to your cheerful self.

Here are 4 tips to eliminate stress:

Lean on God

God knows exactly what you need and is just waiting for you to call on Him for help. One of my favorite scriptures concerning stress relief can be found in Philippians 4: 6-7. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Take It Slow

Taking deep breaths from the diaphragm allows full oxygen exchange throughout the chest and lungs. When you are feeling stressed, sit down in a comfortable position, put one hand on your chest, and the other on your stomach. Breathe in through your nose. If you are deep breathing correctly, you will see the hand on your stomach rise as you breathe, while the hand on your chest should only move slightly. Repeat 10 times and feel yourself relax.

Journal

You may feel like your thoughts are all over the place, and writing down how you are feeling will help you to clarify thoughts and put them into the proper perspective. Make a habit of journaling regularly, and you will discover the things that make you happy, while eliminating toxic people and situations.

Practice Gratitude

This tip has been the most helpful when I am feeling stressed. There are so many things to be thankful for, that even the worse problems don't seem that bad. Practice gratitude by making a gratitude list of everything you're thankful for. I like to do this in the morning and before I go to bed. Include everything you can think of. There is good food to eat, family and friends to treasure, a warm house to sleep in, and most of all a God who loves and leads us.

I have always felt called to write for God, and I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others.

After many years in the corporate world, I am living my dream of writing full-time.
