Shake Off Stress: 5 Simple Solutions to Embrace Ease and Joy


Stress is inevitable, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take steps to relieve it.


Here are five of the best, simplest solutions to shake it off.

  1. Move your body. We love exercise, of course, but even just going for a walk or dancing around the house can help. It’s like a reset button on your stress hormones and blood pressure, bringing fresh oxygen to your brain and putting a smile on your face.

  2. Deliberately relax. Find a cozy spot, get comfy, and take some deep, slow breaths. Repeat a simple rhythmic phrase with your inhale, like “Love In,” and another when you exhale, like “Stress Out.” Feel that tension melting away already?

  3. Express gratitude. Take a moment to count your blessings. Write in your journal, or anywhere, a few things that you’re grateful for. Or tell them to someone. It’s hard to be stressed out when you’re reminded about the good things in your life.

  4. Reach out. Stroke a pet, hug a family member, or sneak in a smooch with your partner. Physical touch has proven stress-reducing effects, so don’t be shy to share some love.

  5. Smile and laugh. Studies show that putting on a smile – even a fake one – gets us moving in the right direction. And laughter doesn’t have to be “real” to truly be the best medicine. Try it! If that feels a little goofy, rely on a classic show to do the trick.


Also make it a priority to stick to a sleep schedule, eat right, and express yourself in healthy ways. Take medication as prescribed.


While recognizing and managing stress is essential, seeking help when needed is equally important. Some individuals may find stress too severe and overwhelming to handle on their own, which is where professionals step in. There are resources and trained experts available to assist with various types of stress, including traumatic and chronic stress.

Don't hesitate to reach out for help if stress is becoming overwhelming in your life. Taking care of your mental health is as crucial as caring for your physical well-being. Our team is here to encourage you to prioritize your overall well-being and seek support whenever necessary.

Always remember, self-care is not selfish—it's necessary!

Wishing you a stress-free and fulfilling day,
