Stress Management Tips - 4 Top Stress Relievers

There are many programs and techniques for stress relief on the market but here are some of the most effective, simple and widely-used stress management programs that are effective for almost everybody and every level of stress being experienced.

First is the deep breathing exercise. Deep breathing has been used for a long time now and it has been proven to be the most effective stress-relief tool. Along with its stress relieving action, deep breathing also helps in the delivery of much needed oxygen to all parts of the body thus relaxing muscles, refreshing the brain, calming the mind and bringing heart rate and blood pressure down. Deep breathing is very effective and useful because you can do it anywhere, it is free and it provides relief almost instantaneously.

The next important tool is physical exercise. Exercise is often used by individuals to become physically fit and maintain a healthy and proper weight. But exercise also helps in the management and relief of stress. Exercise serves as a distraction as well as a channel to release all of the pressure, tension and frustrations you get from being stressed out. Exercise provides overall awareness of your body, giving you a feeling of control over yourself and your current circumstances.

The body also releases endorphins which are natural pain relievers and stress fighters. It brings down the levels of cortisol (stress hormone) and improves our threshold for adapting to stressful situations. Stress relief is only one of the many benefits of exercise so it is very helpful to be fit and healthy, not just for avoiding and managing stress.

Next is music. Listening to music has been one of the most widely used relaxation methods all throughout the world. Do you know somebody who does not listen to music? Probably not. Music has an important place in the lives of every culture of people.

When it comes to stress management, music plays a couple of roles. It is a form of distraction therapy, whereby your mind can focus on something other than what is causing you stress. It can also change brainwave patterns, producing more healthy and calm wavelengths in the neuronal firing patterns of the brain. This produces a very different biochemistry in the body and helps to rebalance a person's overall being.

Music therapy, together with deep breathing has also been used to relieve pain for patients experiencing severe illnesses such as cancer. The best kind of music may be specific classical pieces or those that have a relaxing melody or instruments, but it really differs from person to person. Some even like to listen to rock to ease their stress and pain, so just find what works for you.

The last stress relief I am going to mention is sex! Confused? Well, people don’t usually think of sex when experiencing high levels of stress but the hormones and endorphins produced in the body when having good sex are very mood enhancing, health-giving and stress-relieving.

Provided it is within a healthy relationship structure and done safely, sex is a very good aerobic exercise, a fantastic stress reliever and it also promotes sound sleep, which is also very important for managing stress. Some of these benefits are experienced even if the activity is undertaken alone!

These are just some methods of stress relief; there are a lot more out there but try some of these very simple and practical things first. They may be just what you are looking for.
