    8 Techniques to Relieve Daily Stress

    en-usSeptember 20, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • Managing Daily Stress: Techniques to CopePractice mindfulness, engage in physical activity, set boundaries, prioritize self-care, express gratitude, seek support, practice forgiveness, and focus on the present moment to manage daily stress and improve overall well-being

      We cannot control the chaos of the world around us, but we can control how we react to it. Stress and anxiety are often a result of resistance to the current situation. Instead of fighting against the world, it's essential to adopt techniques to manage stress and maintain calm. The podcast's host, Rob Dial, shares eight techniques he uses to relieve daily stress. These include practicing mindfulness, engaging in physical activity, setting boundaries, prioritizing self-care, expressing gratitude, seeking support, practicing forgiveness, and focusing on the present moment. By implementing these techniques, we can reduce stress and improve our overall well-being. So, next time you feel overwhelmed, remember that the world is the way it is, and focus on the things you can control to maintain peace within yourself.

    • Practice deep breathing and gratitude for stress relief and improved well-beingDeep breathing activates relaxation response, lowering heart rate and blood pressure. Gratitude shifts perspective, reducing negative emotions and attracting positivity.

      Practicing deep breathing and focusing on gratitude are simple yet effective ways to manage stress and improve overall well-being. Deep breathing, which involves taking six slow and deep breaths, can help activate the parasympathetic nervous system, promoting relaxation and reducing stress. This simple exercise can decrease heart rate, lower blood pressure, and induce a sense of calm. Additionally, focusing on gratitude can help shift our perspective and reduce negative emotions. By focusing on what we have instead of what we lack, we can attract more positivity into our lives. These two practices, when combined, can significantly improve our mood and overall state of being.

    • The power of gratitudePracticing gratitude by focusing on what we have can improve mood and overall sense of well-being, releasing serotonin and contributing to feelings of happiness and contentment.

      Focusing too much on what we don't have or what we desire can lead to stress and anxiety. The opposite of desire is gratitude, and practicing gratitude by focusing on what we do have can help improve our mood and overall sense of well-being. Our brains release serotonin when we feel grateful, which contributes to feelings of happiness and contentment. It's important to remember that desiring things is not inherently bad, but fixating on them and believing that we won't be happy until we obtain them can negatively impact our mental health. Even in difficult circumstances, there are always things to be grateful for, and focusing on these can help us feel better.

    • Find things to stay grateful and connected to healthGratitude for heart and health reduces stress. Walking in nature lowers cortisol and improves mood (biophilia hypothesis)

      Even in the most challenging circumstances, such as being homeless or living a stressful life, it's important to find things to keep us grateful and connected to our health. Gratitude for our heart still beating and our health is the first step towards reducing stress and anxiety. Another effective way to reduce stress is by going for a walk, preferably in nature, as it has therapeutic benefits for humans. Walking and being in nature lower cortisol levels, which is a stress hormone. This natural desire to connect with nature is known as the biophilia hypothesis. Taking a walk in nature, also called forest bathing, has been scientifically proven to have both physical and mental health benefits. So, in summary, practicing gratitude and taking a walk in nature are simple yet effective ways to reduce stress and improve mood.

    • Journaling and health check-ups for improved well-beingWriting about stressors and getting regular health check-ups can lead to reduced stress, better health outcomes, and improved overall well-being.

      Taking care of your mental and physical health can lead to significant improvements in well-being. One simple yet effective way to do this is by journaling. According to a study from 1986, writing about traumatic events or even everyday stressors can lead to physiological and psychological improvements. This expressive writing or journaling can help reduce stress and even lead to better health outcomes. Additionally, getting your blood levels checked can uncover any deficiencies that may be impacting your energy and motivation levels. For instance, a few years ago, the speaker discovered they were deficient in vitamin B and D, which were easily remedied with supplements. So, consider putting your thoughts on paper and getting a check-up to optimize your health.

    • Improve well-being with vitamins and reduce caffeineVitamin supplements can enhance mental and physical health, decrease stress and anxiety. Reducing caffeine intake, especially for those stressed or anxious, can improve stress levels.

      Addressing nutritional deficiencies through vitamin supplements can significantly improve mental and physical well-being, reducing stress and anxiety levels. The speaker personally experienced this transformation and noticed the return of symptoms when they stopped taking their vitamins. Additionally, reducing caffeine intake, especially for those who are highly stressed or anxious, can lead to improved stress levels. Caffeine can increase cortisol, which can contribute to stress and anxiety. By addressing these two areas, individuals can work towards restoring balance and potentially reduce their reliance on caffeine. While vitamin supplements may come with a cost, the potential benefits to overall health and well-being are worth considering.

    • Managing stress naturally without caffeineBalancing blood sugar and cortisol, avoiding caffeine after noon, watching comedy, and listening to calming music can improve mood, energy levels, and mental health.

      There are several natural ways to manage stress and improve energy levels without relying heavily on caffeine. First, ensuring that your blood sugar and cortisol levels are balanced can reduce the need for caffeine. Second, avoiding caffeine consumption after noon can improve sleep quality. Third, watching comedy for ten minutes a day can lower cortisol levels and release endorphins, promoting relaxation and overall well-being. Lastly, paying attention to the type of music we listen to can impact our stress levels. Instead of high-intensity music, opt for calming tunes to help manage stress throughout the day. These simple practices can significantly improve our mood, energy levels, and overall mental health.

    • Music reduces anxiety and stressListening to calming music lowers anxiety, decreases heart rate and blood pressure, and is a simple tool to manage stress

      Music can significantly reduce anxiety and stress. The song "Weightless" by Marconi Union and the African theme song from the movie are examples of calming music. Studies have shown that listening to relaxing music before stressful tasks can decrease subjective anxiety, lower blood pressure, and heart rate. Incorporating calming music into your daily routine is one of many tools to help manage stress and anxiety. Other methods include practicing deep breathing, expressing gratitude, taking a walk in nature, writing down thoughts, getting blood work done, reducing caffeine intake, and watching comedy. Ultimately, while we cannot change our external reality, we can improve our ability to cope with it through various methods.

    How I Reclaimed My Health When Nothing Else Was Working

    Have you ever noticed how, when life feels hectic and stressful, something always seems to happen to make matters worse? 

    You were doing so well, taking care of yourself by eating well, trying to get enough sleep and taking some downtime. 

    And you DID feel like you were managing all the madness happening. 

    But then, out of the blue, you get sick. 

    Perhaps you get such a stinking cold that you can barely move for days. Or your stomach suddenly becomes ultra-sensitive and it feels that everything you eat leaves you feeling uncomfortable, bloated or even having digestive issues. 

    Or you’re sooo tired that getting out of bed seems like the most insurmountable mountain to climb. 

    It seems unfair, doesn’t it? You have so much going on and then THIS?!?!?!

    But it’s hardly surprising because there’s a strong connection between our mental and physical health. When you feel stressed or overwhelmed by anything in your life, your immune system takes a knock, your body falls out of balance and yes, more often than not, you get sick.

    This is a topic that we often don’t talk about as female entrepreneurs and business owners despite how important it is. Don’t miss this eye-opening episode!

    • Why I felt like a TOTAL fraud when it came to self-care 😭(and what I did about it!)

    Want What You Have

    Want What You Have
    Bring to mind the last thing you purchased or achieved believing that it would make you happier. How long did that happiness last?
