Stretching can be an effective strategy for preventing and alleviating stress. One way that it does so is by lengthening the muscles to relieve tension. Most of us experience a good deal of stress in our daily lives, especially us software developers during coding time. There never seems to be enough time in the day! And that stress builds up without our realizing it, creating physical and mental stiffness.
2. Step Outside And Explore Nature
Being in nature, or even viewing scenes of nature, reduces anger, fear, and stress and increases pleasant feelings. Exposure to nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, it contributes to your physical wellbeing, reducing blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones. It may even reduce mortality, according to scientists such as public health researchers.
3. Play Your Favourite Video Games
Video games are engaging and enjoyable, which reduces stress. Gaming results in dopamine secretion, which makes you feel good. Video games present a challenge and reward you for overcoming it, which leads to feelings of competence. Gaming can create a flow state, which is similar to meditation. Video games give you instant rewards, which help to reduce the stress of achieving long term goals.
4. Call A Family Members Or Friends
When you’re feeling stressed, take a break to call a friend or your family member and talk about your problems. Good relationships with friends and loved ones are important to any healthy lifestyle. They’re especially important when you’re under a lot of stress. A reassuring voice, even for a minute, can put everything in perspective.
5. Read A Book That Inspires You
Research has shown that reading fiction is more effective at reducing stress than listening to music, sipping tea, and taking a walk. In fact, stress levels were shown to be reduced by 68 percent after reading. While your brain is engaged in the story, your heart rate slows down and muscles relax. Because there is so much work for your brain to do, reading is a very effective way to focus your energy and improve your concentration.
6. Meet Up With Your Best Friend
During stressful times, being around a best friend decreases levels of the stress hormones. Having good friends and a strong social support network can relieve stress. One study published in the Annals of Behavioral Medicine found that people who discussed difficult times in their lives had a lower pulse and blood pressure when they had a friend by their side.
7. Eat Your Favourite Snacks
