Need a lift?

complete-media-sioux-falls-south-dakota-marketing-advertising-blog-news-jessicas-journal
Life can be stressful.
There is no denying that.  Work, home, and pressures from society can make life tough.  Here are some tips that have worked for me to get out of the funk and back to productivity.
    1. Write it down. I’ve recently started (well, restarted for the thousandth time) writing in a journal. Putting my thoughts on paper brings an instant relief from the inner anxiety, allowing me to think more rationally and have more control.

 

    1. Find your musical muse. Mine is Sara Bareilles.  She always knows just what to say to turn my day around.

 

    1. Movie it. “Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands.”  – Name that movie.

 

    1. Simply laugh. Watching a funny Youtube clip or a comedy flick is great for turning the day around. I’ve recently discovered ‘Wipeout’ and that always gives me a chuckle.

 

    1. Fake it till you make it. If you have to fake a smile for the world, do it because eventually you won’t have to fake it.

 

    1. Stay busy. Rather than spending an evening eating Ben & Jerry’s, go out on the town.  Make plans that you can look forward to. Go out for dinner with your friends, watch the newest movie that’s out in theaters, or better yet, get yourself a massage.

 

  1. Live by the quotes you pin on Pinterest. Ridiculous? Maybe. However, I am constantly telling myself the quotes that I read or find and eventually, I start to believe them. Live positively and positive things will happen to you.
Everyone has different ways to help them relieve the stress. So play with it. Experiment with new techniques or do some of your own research. Either way, you’ll find the ways to best relieve your stress and that will may you a happier, healthier person.
