blog post draft (1) 7-10

There are some great free stress-busters out there for women looking to beat stress.

You don’t have to pay a day’s worth of wages to spend a few hours at a spa. If you’re looking for free ways to beat stress, here are eight effective stress management strategies every woman can use to de-stress:

  1. Get out of your house and socialize. If you’re developing a little cabin fever, it’s time to get out of your house and talk to some people. Socializing can help you decompress in a way that staying cooped up in your house never can.
  1. Exercise. If you’re tired of hearing how exercise can help you de-stress, too bad, you’re going to hear it again. There really is no better way to clear your body and your mind of stress than getting out and walking, jogging, biking, etc. It helps your body release pent up stress and gives your mind time and impetus to process its anxieties.
  1. Read a book. Taking time to just sit in the quiet and read a book can do a heap of good for the soul. Grab an old favorite or strike out to a bookstore and pick up something new.
  1. Journaling. Studies have shown that writing down your thoughts and feelings can actually help you process those thoughts and feelings. If you are stress-ridden, it’s time to pick up a pen or sit down at your computer and put those things down on paper.
  1. Go for a walk. While this can count as exercise, just taking a stroll around town has its own benefits and merits, even if you’re not working up a sweat. Walking by yourself or with a friend is a great way to process your thoughts and feelings in a neutral space.
  1. Get outside in the sun. There’s a reason doctors used to send their anxious patients to the Mediterranean—sun is good for the body and for the soul. It produces vitamin D, which is vital to the immune system and can actually generate a good mood.
  1. Camp in your backyard. Getting out into nature is one of the best ways to fight the stress of the daily hustle and bustle. Click here to find out how backyard camping can reduce stress.
  1. Take a nap. Seriously, just do it. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and exhausted, give yourself a 15-30 minutes nap. You’ll be surprised how refreshed you are and how you feel able to take on what comes your way.
