Stop the Road Rage: Quick and Easy Way to Significantly Reduce Stress Levels

From Samantha Lazaris @SamLaz12, Program Intern

In today’s non-stop busy world, the levels of stress continue to sky rocket. Not only is stress not fun, it is also the leading cause to many health issues such as high blood pressure and heart disease. Now, although there is no magic cure to relieving stress, this may be one of the quickest ways to drastically decrease those moments of panic!

Introducing: 5 minutes of alone time!
Many people “claim” they do not have time but when we allow ourselves time to “unwind”, studies show that not only do we function more efficiently but we are also more positive and happy human beings all around.  This can be a minimum of 5 minutes dedicated to ‘you’— no interruptions allowed! Whether it is when you are showering in the morning or on your walk after dinner, find some time within your day to clear your head!

The only way to be successful at making time for you is to actually write it on your schedule and stick to the plan. The easiest way to do this is by focusing on your breathing and engaging your senses to embrace more sounds, smells and feelings. If you have trouble clearing your head, think about all the things you take for granted and express gratitude for them. Just give it a try for one week and see the unbelievable difference within your mood and road rage :-)
