  1. I love these tips. I do a lot of these myself. I have a whiplash injury that is aggravated by stress so I have been actively working on managing my stress better. The biggest things that have helped me are getting off my laptop and getting off my phone by 6 pm and actually taking the time to destress. I also journal a lot. It helps.

      Sorry to hear about your injury, Patty, but glad you’re actively working on it and managing the stress. Getting off your phone and journaling are both great ways to destress!

  2. This is such a great list and reference! I’ve found progressive muscle relaxation to be so helpful, even to help me fall asleep at night. Music is a big one for me too. It really does help change your mood and mindset! Journaling is something I always intend to do but never seem to make happen. Thank you for the prompts!

      Yes, muscle relaxation is a good one for sure. Glad you like the stress-relief prompts, Jill and hopefully, one will motivate you to start journaling. Even just a couple of sentences is helpful.

  3. I’m in love with this post, Martha! I have tried some of these stress relievers and they are very helpful, especially when I continue to practice them (you know how you sometimes fall off the bandwagon, haha!). I want to try some of the others as well that you’ve mentioned here, including the Pop-Its!

    I love your beautiful photos, by the way!

    Hope you have a wonderful upcoming week, my dear friend!

      Aww, thanks, Ashley 🙂 I hear you. Sometimes it’s a challenge to stay consistent. The ones I finally built into my daily habits now come easily and have made such a difference. Pop-Its are so much fun!

  4. These are great tips for stress relief! My favorite way to destress is to pray and do deep breathing. Doing this I feel the stress leave my body. Thank you for sharing!

  5. I like what you said about using our senses because it is a great idea to relieve stress and easy to do at home. It is also helpful that you share things to avoid like alcohol, I know many people rely on that to feel more relaxed. Thank you for sharing. Great post!

      Using your senses is underrated, but it’s excellent to feel calmer and let go of some stress. Thanks, Nury!

  6. Great tips! Although, I find myself doing the “no-nos” a lot more often than I would like! Thank you for all the tips and tricks!
