We all know too much stress is bad for us, right?
So we do all the things to help prevent it – we get enough sleep, don’t overschedule ourselves, exercise, eat right, do breathing exercises, etc. etc. etc.
And even so, sometimes we find ourselves smack in the middle of a stress overload! Especially this time of year, with all the extra activities and worries about meeting expectations.
I’ve got a quick fix for you that doesn’t involve meditating.
Here it is … GO FOR A WALK (OR RUN) OUTSIDE. Even 5 to 10 minutes can make a real difference.
It has been a stress cure for centuries! (Because it works.)
“I took a walk in nature and came out taller than the trees,” – Henry David Thoreau.
You don’t have to walk in the trees to get the benefits. You can do it pretty much anywhere.
And if you can’t go for an actual walk … just go outside and sit for a few minutes.
Here are a few reasons why this can help cut stress:
Plus … exercise is good for your heart and overall health!
I hope you can avoid the extra “holiday stress” over the coming weeks – but if you can’t, try lacing up those walking shoes and getting outside!
