Reducing stress in just 15 minutes? Is that even possible? In an age where some studies say that 72 percent of people feel stressed about money at least some of the time, it is amazing that less than half of us engage in stress-reduction techniques to make our lives more manageable.
According to this stress infographic, reducing stress in just 15 minutes is possible – and it’s actually quite simple! Power naps, coloring books, exercising – it doesn’t have to be complicated to be effective. It is no surprise that yoga is highly regarded as a great stress-reduction technique, but while it can seem to be a big time commitment, simply taking a few moments to work on a key position can be a great release.
Breathing is something you should definitely try – taking even and deep breaths when you’re feeling stressed has been proven to lower cortisol levels, which can help reduce stress and anxiety. Simple as that. And what about offering someone a hug? That is so simple and it can reduce not only your stress levels, but also help the person you are giving a hug to.
I also found a cool idea – for example, fountain from Soothing Walls can provide a calming sound that will help you relax.
