QUICK STRESS-BUSTER: GO OUTSIDE

Stress can be bad for us, but 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:

1. It removes you from the stressful environment. (SO important!) This helps you naturally shift your energy and perspective. 

2. It helps you reconnect with the outside world. Take some time to look around at your surroundings. This can help break the loop of stressful and worried thoughts.

3. It helps you reconnect with your body. Usually, when we’re stressed, it’s because we’re “in our heads” – wrapped up in our thoughts. The act of walking will help your muscles loosen up, getting rid of physical tension.

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!

Make it a nature-filled kind of day,
