With how fast paced the world is, and all the responsibilities that we have piling up, it’s easy to become stressed out and overwhelmed.
When you find yourself stressed out it can be difficult to think of ways to wind down so you can get back to feeling calm and balanced.
Below are ten ways to de-stress at home.
1. Take a Moment to Breathe
It seems so simple, but it’s something that’s easy to forget to do. Most of us don’t breathe deeply throughout the day and taking the time to do so can help you de-stress.
Take a few full, deep breaths to fill your lungs with air and then exhale completely. Count to five as you inhale, hold your breath for a moment, and then exhale for five seconds as well.
The extra boost of oxygen can help to calm you down by slowing your nervous system. As a bonus, you can do this anywhere when you’re feeling stressed out.
2. Practice Self Care
A key to relaxation is taking the time to care for and pamper yourself at home.
Whether that means spending extra time to care for your skin, reading a good book, or cooking your favorite meal, self care is a key factor for eliminating stress.
If you’re looking for the perfect lotion to apply during your self-care routine we recommend our Rosemary and Lavender Goat Milk Lotion. Lavender and rosemary have been shown to increase relaxation and calm - making this lotion ideal for you.
If you haven’t tried meditation, you should know that it’s proven to reduce stress levels.
A lot of people have a specific vision of what meditation looks like, but simply put, it's about quieting the mind and living in the present moment.
Even a couple of minutes of meditation can make a huge impact on stress levels.
4. Take a Bath
A warm, relaxing bath can help you to destress at home. In fact, a lot of people make this a regular part of their weekly routine to ensure they feel good every day.
The simple act of lighting a candle can promote comfort and relaxation.
There is a term that refers to a Danish lifestyle philosophy of creating a comfy environment called “Hygge” and one popular way to incorporate Hygge into your life is to light candles.
They help to create a warm, calming environment - perfect for de-stressing. Shop our candle collection and find a scent that you can enjoy in your own home.
6. Take a Break from Screens
It can be easy to get sucked into our phones and our televisions for hours each day.
We don’t even notice how much time we spend looking at screens because it’s become such a normal part of our lives.
Taking time away from screens can help you to de-stress. The simple act of not consuming as much information will calm your mind and allow you to feel calm and relaxed.
7. Turn on Some Music
If you love music (and who doesn't) - turn up the tunes! Dance if you feel like dancing, or prepare your favorite drink, sit back and enjoy.
Put on something relaxing to help you de-stress. It can also help listening to something nostalgic to bring back fond memories.
Music has time and again proven to reduce pain and anxiety, making it perfect for eliminating stress!
8. Go Outside
Nature and fresh air have a way of allowing us to feel more grounded and less stressed out. Try going outside for a relaxing activity like gardening or just to feel the sun on your skin.
You can also go for a walk to clear your mind and release endorphins that will boost your mood and help to decrease your stress levels.
9. Snuggle Your Pet
If you have a pet, it can be so calming to sit and pet them. One study even showed that college students that “interacted with cats and dogs had a significant reduction in cortisol, a major stress hormone.”
We’re often so busy running around in our lives, that we rarely sit and enjoy time with them. Whether you have dogs, cats or goats as part of your family of furry friends, both of you will enjoy this method of de-stressing.
10. Practice Yoga
Yoga has proven time and again to help reduce stress. It also has many other health benefits, making it a great place to start in your new relaxation routine.
You don’t have to do complex poses or long sessions to see the benefits, find a beginner class or pull up a video on YouTube and get started.
If you really want to relax, try out goat yoga. You may not get much stretching in, but at least you get to enjoy the cuteness of baby goats!
Feeling overwhelmed and stressed out is something that a lot of people struggle with. Following these steps will help you improve your mood and quality of life. Nothing is more important than feeling happy and stress free.
