Keeping Calm While You're Stressed & Crazy Busy

Being stressed is never great, in fact it's incredibly overwhelming. We've all been there, with a million things to do but no time to do them. Staying up late, waking up early, running around all waking hours just to try & get everything done. Stress is different for everybody but the main thing to do is to stop & relax. If you feel burnt out & in need of a refresh here are a few of my tips.

Breathing Exercises
This is one you can do anywhere, anytime. If you have 5 to 10 minutes, try doing a quick mediation, The mental & physical benefits of mediation are amazing. Apps like Headspace are fun & easy. 

Have Some 'Me' Time
It's important to take time for yourself at least once a week, more if you have time. Give yourself time to focus on yourself opposed to what's stressing you out. 

Break A Sweat
Best way to beat stress is to sweat it out. It doesn't matter if it's a small walk or an intense kick boxing class. Being active will release feel good hormones & fight stress. 

Make A Gratitude List 
Instead of focusing on all the worries in life & tasks you need to get done, grab a piece of paper & write down everything you're grateful for. 

The benefits of getting enough sleep are incredible. On the flip side, not getting enough sleep can create some terrible side effects, one of those being stress. So turn off your laptop/smartphone & try to get a decent night sleep.
