Anastasia's insight:

Each and every one of us has some sort of chaos in our lives. Over time all these small little irritating moments build up in our system and produce stress. We are the ones responsible for unleashing that entire baggage of stress out and away from our system. We may think that doing things like meditating, or yoga will reduce stress, but other simpler things will do the trick. To name a few that studies proved to ease stress is thinking of the positive things that you have in your life since this will surround your thoughts towards the positive side. Also, creating scents like garlic bread in your house is a soothing way to enhance the family atmosphere and step away from stress. In addition, turning off your phone since we might not realize this, but most of us have to keep up with our notifications through emails, phone calls, and texts. Just turning that informational part off and not worrying about it for a while creates a more productive and stress free side of us. Even if we might not have time to roll out that yoga mat, or go out and purchase that soothing scent bottle to fill up our home, there are other ways to relieve stress using our everyday tools.

Anastasia's insight:

Every day we have busy schedules revolving around work, school, friends, family, and most importantly our health, but do we really spend or even try to fit in any time for just us? To step back from our chaotic life and just take a breath? Well relieving stress is one step closer to fulfilling a healthy lifestyle.  Apparently what most people don’t care to realize is how stress affects not only our physical health, but our emotional and mental health as well. Long term stress can lead up to depression, anger, anxiety, mood swings, and irritability. People have to realize that if they’re the ones overwhelmed and stressed, then this starts to have an effect others around. That’s why people need to know that it’s okay to step away from our everyday life and take off the stress that we don’t need, since this can be the string that’s pulling us back from enjoying our life.

Anastasia's insight:

Our emotions can become a roller-coaster when we are stressed out. We can go from being irritated to depressed, feeling hopeless to feeling annoyed. However, just putting on a smile can just be a simple way to reduce our stress level that we carry. A research has compared people who smiled while doing a stressful task, to the people who weren’t smiling during the task. In the end, it showed that those who did attempt to smile resulted in lower heart rate levels. This encouraged me to continue and smile throughout any task I attempt to do. If we think logically about it, a smile signifies a positive attitude. With this being said, stress, on the other hand, depicts a negative emotion, so why not put on a positive attitude for us next time when we feel that we are stressed out and get away from the negative side effects that stress gives us.
