12 Things You Can Do Daily to Reduce Your Stress Levels

Reduce your stress levels by adding these 12 things into your daily routine (Plus FREE Checklist)

We often talk about being stressed quite frequently in our life.

You can feel stressed-out about the school-run, the meeting with the bank manager, what to make for dinner, the house move, the new job, trying to fit in 101 tasks to your day, and the poor health of a loved one. You can even feel stressed about going on holiday, birthdays, Christmas, or even buying new shoes!

Stress comes in all forms, shapes and sizes. What causes you to feel stressed is personal to you, and also how stressed-out you feel to begin with.

For example, have you ever lost your cool with someone over something really trivial? Something that normally you wouldn’t bat an eyelid about?
Have you ever found yourself sobbing because you are so tired, or just totally frustrated with something?
Do you ever dash about so much in the day that you forget to eat lunch, or find that by dinner-time the last drink you had was your morning coffee?

If you can relate to any of these examples, read on.

What follows are 12 simple daily things that you can do to help keep your stress levels to a minimum and prevent your mind and body from total burn-out.

Now you are in March, it’s just not happened and you have accepted, as you always do, that it’s just not to be just now. You might try again later in the year. You probably won’t.

You had the thought. You had a good feeling about it. You put some energy behind it (possibly some time and money too), yet what are your results?

Nothing. Nada. Not the tiniest of changes. This is so sad.
What was the point of trying in the first place? It’s probably not for you, right? You are doomed to live the way you do for all eternity. Yes?

You are fine all day then you get to a point somewhere between lunch and dinner-time when you feel your energy fade and you could just curl up into a ball and go to sleep. The desire to complete the tasks you were on fire with in the morning has just gone, and you really could just leave it all until tomorrow.

The day is beginning to drag on and you are counting the hours until you can leave work, eat dinner and put your feet up on the sofa. If only you could just grab a quick nap, or find somewhere to hide for the next couple of hours…
