Stress Relieving Activities to Adopt

If becoming an adult isn’t already hard enough, it also comes with emotional exhaustion and it is an overwhelming time. In a generation, where there is so much internal and external pressure on individuals to live up to certain set standards. It becomes of utmost importance to cope with the stress and anxiety day after day. It’s necessary to adopt some stress-relieving habits which will rejuvenate your mind and body.

Dance away

Dance is also a form of exercise and makes a nice change from the boring gym routines. It’s not just about fitness though it’s the energetic atmosphere, loud music, and a chance to groove that is such a stress reliever. It gets your heart and spirit pumping in tune to the music. Take up a Zumba or Salsa class and dance away from your problems for a while; dance burns a lot of calories so that’s a bonus.

Join a hobby class

I understand in the limited amount of time on our hands with jobs and studying and much more, there isn’t much time for extra activities. This is a fact but doing something new is also helpful. Find a hobby you always wanted to pursue but didn’t get time so be it calligraphy, painting, or even learning a new language. It gives you something different to do and break away from the mundane routine; socializing in new circles and learning something new at the same time. It distracts one from the daily hustle and bustle.

Take a break

This is the best and easiest solution to stress-busting is taking a break. Be it a four-day trip, one day or a month; give yourself the much-needed break every now and then. It revitalizes your physical and mental capacities. A change in scenery will give you a much needed fresh perspective and that goes a long way. Drive away for a day trip or book yourself a tour but get away from the daily schedule and recharge.

Surround yourself with loved ones

It sounds very cheesy, I agree. There are so many people around who are not genuine or try to pull you down and that affects your overall well-being. Being around people who care, nurture and cherish you through the highs and lows of life bring a lot of positivity in your life. Surrounding yourself with people who are positive, inspiring and caring is good for one’s emotional state. Even a two-hour lunch or quick call with them can make you feel a little better and get you back on track.

The problems due to stress are increasing rapidly in the millennial generation; living up to the high expectations we set for ourselves is difficult. It is okay to take a step back and regroup your mental and physical energies once in a while. These habits are a few options to cope with the stress levels.

Frustrations in Life

 

 

Sometimes, do you wonder when you open your eyes in the morning that all the bad things happening in your life are just a nightmare? The moment you open your eyes, things will change; they will get better. But life isn’t that simple is it?

This feeling of dread in the pit of your stomach refuses to go away. Your hopes, dreams, expectations have only one enemy and that is reality. Nothing seems to be going your way, you feel lost and defeated. One thought swirling in your mind all the time, if this is all life is going to be like for you?

The unanswered question is the biggest reason for your frustration. So many doubts overwhelming your mind all at once and there seems to be no end to the negativity in your head. Where is the thrill, the magic you have always wanted? You can’t seem to find the path to your destiny. Is growing up really this complicated? You wish someone would understand you, give advice and not judge. Be there by your side making sure you don’t fall.

Why does every aspect of life seem harder when you are stuck. As far as you can see there is only a road and you have no idea.

A Wish

A Wish

I wish you could see what I see,

I wish your heart could skip a beat like mine does,

For you to get entangled in a whirlwind of emotions like I do every time I look at you,

I wish you would realize how easy it is for us to share our lives with each other.

There is so much between us that is too hard to ignore,

Yet in some way, you remain oblivious to it,

I wish you would feel about me the way I feel about you; all at once with all my heart,

I wish.

It’s scary, intimidating even; not knowing your destination. You keep hoping it will get better; rise above it and then you will be where you want to be. I don’t know what’s going to happen in my life but one thing I know is that no matter what, I am not going to lose hope, there is always a way; there has to be one.
