Practical Ways To Cut Stress Out Of Your Life

Cutting stress out of your life sounds easy in theory; don’t take on so much, delegate where you can, take some time for you, etc., but in reality, these tips can be less than practical! Especially when you’re a busy mom with a lot of responsibilities to keep up with, finding a moment of peace is next to impossible! So how are you meant to cut out stress when it gets too much for you? Let’s go through some practical ideas that might just work below.

Make Good Use of Music

Music can go a long way to making you feel better! It’s something we’re intrinsically linked to – we like to dance and sing as they’re both good outlets, even if you’re no good! Music helps us to put a bit of passion into what we do, and if you’ve got a lot to get through today or tomorrow, setting up a playlist to help pass the time is great for reducing stress. 

The playlist doesn’t necessarily have to be filled with calming music either. Forget whale sounds if you don’t like them – just make sure you’re listening to music you enjoy! Put it on in the car, get a good set of noise cancelling earphones, and make sure you’re cleaning the house with a good record on in the background. 

Cut Down on Errand Runs

Errand runs can be incredibly stressful! They clog up your to-do list, they take up a lot of time in the morning and the afternoon, and your list of errands can seem to go on and on forever. But good news: it doesn’t have to stay this way! 

Double up where you can and make sure you group ‘like’ activities together. Similarly, one easy way to cut down on runs like these is by looking into free prescription delivery; you won’t have to hit the pharmacy anywhere near as often when it’s delivered straight to you. 

Have a Wind Down Before Bed

Winding down before bedtime is a great way to get yourself ready for sleep after a long day. You’re tired, yes, but often enough your brain just won’t shut up either! And even when you do sleep, it’s of poor quality and you wake up more tired than you were before. 

A good wind down can help to prevent all of this. So try turning off the screens, do some stretching and breathing exercises, make sure the room is suitably cool and then tuck yourself into some warm blankets. 

Buy a Stress Toy

And a quick point to finish off – you might just need to buy a stress toy! Something you can squeeze and throw around when it all gets too much. Stress balls have been around for generations, and you can easily find them online. So, buy one or two and make sure they’re always around to grip and play with. 

Cutting stress out of your life can be done, you’ve just got to get more practical!
