How to get rid of stress naturally: 10 tips

Every human being experiences stress at some or the other point of
time in life. Thanks to our tiring jobs, faulty eating habits,
pollution and most of all our lethargy, which add to the cause of
stress. Everyone reacts to stress differently. Some may cope up with
it and some may not. Studies have proved that an increase in stress
hormones might speed up cognitive decline in people as you age.

When you feel stress, your body secretes hormones called adrenaline
and cortisone which lead to an increase in blood pressure, high blood
sugar levels and in the worst case may lead to major organ damage. So,
it is important to fight against stress before it bogs you down.

fight and overcome stress and diseases? Sounds great isn't it? Whether
you accept it or not, music affects our daily life, as every human
being responds to it. An amalgamation of psychology and counselling,
music can act as a healing therapy to cure several conditions like
depression, personality issues, autism, cancer etc.

Outdoor walking: Walking is an inexpensive, low-risk and easiest
accessible form of exercise. It significantly contributes to enhanced
mental health and well-being.

bay. As per studies, daily 25 minutes of focused meditation
drastically affects people`s ability to be resilient under stress.

helps in reducing stress. Essential oils, known as relaxants, help to
soothe your mind and eliminate anxiety.

must to relax your mind and reduce stress levels. Also, improper sleep

for a while. Give time to yourself, feel the fresh air and notice the

Positive thinking: Yes, you heard it right. Positive thinking plays a
major role in combating stress. It may be a little difficult to think
positive in a stressful situation, but believe it or not giving
positive messages to your mind helps ease anxiety and helps you remain
calm and happy.

Laugh out loud and smile: No, I am not kidding. Laughter is the best
medicine is an age-old saying and holds true in this age too. Whenever
you face a situation when you are extremely stressed, try laughing or
