23 Scientifically-Backed Ways To Reduce Stress Right Now

My Thoughts:

For the article posted by Kate Morin, I took a lot away. She begins by saying stress is everywhere; whether in family, friends, fights, etc. 54% of Americans are concerned with the level of stress in their daily lives. I found that statistic very sad but believable. There is so much in life to obsess over and be worried about! However, Kate Morin provides many ways and techniques to reduce stress every day, all of which were very interesting. I will definitely be taking some of her suggestions and trying them because they seem logical. For example, doing an art project was one of her ideas; this to me would be very fun and beneficial. The project would completely distract my mind from whatever caused my stress and would focus on having fun painting, or creating something different! Another example that I want to try is chewing gum, I would have never thought that chewing gum would reduce stress so I am very excited to test it out! Studies show that chewing gum reduces cortisol levels which alleviate stress. I liked this article very much and thought it was very helpful!

There is a lot going on in school right now, and as the school year progresses, my motivation for actually doing anything declines. This causes a lot of stress for me, so I read this article to get a few tips on what to do to calm mysel down. 
   The best tips from this article (in my opinion) were; aromatherapy (definately going to try that), progressive relaxation (tensing, then realeasing, every muscle group in the body), drink tea, excercise, getting a massage, taking  nap, hugging it out and taking a walk. A few of these are things I already do - but sometimes they make me more stressed because they take time away from what I should be doing. But I will give it more time, and I will try to relax while doing these things. After all, that's the point of them!
