From minor challenges to major crises, stress is part of life. And while you can’t always control your circumstances, you can control how you respond to them. When stress becomes overwhelming or chronic, it can affect your well-being. That’s why it’s essential to have effective stress relievers that can calm your mind and body. 

Some effective stress management techniques include:


  • Guided imagery
  • Meditation
  • Progressive muscle relaxation
  • Deep breathing
  • Going for a walk
  • Hugs
  • Aromatherapy
  • Creativity
  • Healthy diet
  • Stress relief supplements
  • Leisure activities
  • Positive self-talk
  • Yoga
  • Gratitude
  • Exercise
  • Evaluating priorities
  • Social support
  • Eliminating stressors

And what works for you at home might not be an option when you’re at work or in the community (dancing around your living room might be helpful but dancing in the grocery store might not be). 

So it’s important to have a variety of stress relief tools at your disposal. Then, you’ll be able to pick a strategy that works best for your current circumstances.
