Just from reading through countless word daily, keeping up with your business finance, handling the customers and fighting bugs in your written program are more than enough to inflict you with more than stress, in fact, there are many things to juggle in life as a human being that can inflict you with stress. 

   We know that stress is sometimes inescapable and necessary for our income, but what if it wrecks a havoc in your health if it’s your chronic mode of operation? That’s why it's very important to use these techniques and strategics for your mind to keep stress at bay.


1) Exercise Often.

   I know that you have heard of this multiple times from your doctor and from corner-to-corner, but I think that it worth more than another remind. Exercising is the utmost and Paramount way to maintain and archive a good physical and mental health state. Studies has disclosed that aerobic exercising like running, lifting and walking many times a week helps to boost mood, sharpens focus, improve sleep and can also help fight more fatal chronic challenges like depression.


2) Practice Yoga Often.

   You must have seen some gurus breathing in and out while practicing yoga, and as a human being with common sense, I think you don't actually need some evidence to discover that such an act reduces stress, but here, science back it up. 

  This yoga is a very good effective way that you can use to lessen stress, anxiety, and depression. Lead researcher Lindsey B. Hopkins DeBoer, Ph.D., from the San Francisco VA Medical Center has made research on this, and has disclosed that practicing yoga is able to reduce level of the stress hormone cortisol, and this is a very good reason enough to do some yoga, at least once in a week.


3) Meditation. 

   I don't think that you have to do deep research for you to find research that backs meditating as a way to lessen stress, depression and other chronic nerve challenges. There have been some research and studies conducted on this particular topic over the past few years now. 

   One recent study by the University of California, San Francisco has found and has disclosed to people that meditating will bolster the brain chemicals with the hormones that will help you to opt out or lessen stress and fight other sicknesses. That exact study also showed that meditating lowers blood pressure and also help people to react patiently to stressing situations.


4) Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

   This is a kind of psychotherapy talk that's mainly designed to change the ingrained negative thought pattern that could help to change the pattern that could be affecting the way you react to certain stressful situations. The utmost thing here is to change the way you react to trigger, right? Cognitive distancing and de-fusion is a practice that will help you get a good space that will help you with some stressing situations that might get you into spirals. If you're one who is experiencing chronic stress, then it worth seeing a mental health professional who specialise in CBT.


5) Get Yourself Some Massage.

   Many people would decline the offer of a free massage, but now, the science has made it clear that frequent massaging is now a good way to reduce stress and other chronicle challenges. If you massage, it will help to reduce the stress hormone cortisol which will surely reduce blood pressure and boost the immune system. Just a massage of little 20 minutes once in a week can help lessen stress.
