10 Easy Stress Busters, an excerpt from an article in First for Women, April 25, 2011.

  1. Make someone smile-- this evaporates tension.
  2. Reach for the sky -- exercise for at least 30 seconds reduces the stress hormone output.
  3. Put on comfy clothes/pj's -- reduces stress level in 60 seconds.
  4. Crunch on raw vegetables - chewing on crunchy foods puts out endorphins and slashes stress levels by up to 20 percent.
  5. Lower your voice -- talking softly reduces stress levels within two minutes.
  6. Open a window for 10 minutes twice daily cuts levels of carbon dioxide and ozone gases.
  7. Eat 1 oz chocolate -- the phenylethylamine in chocolate boots production of serotonin.
  8. Sneak in beans -- add 1 cup to your daily diet to quell chronic anxiety in as little as 72 hours.
  9. Cuddle up with a heating pad - can switch off stress in just two minutes (switches brain waves to positive feelings).
  10. Rub your ears -- a 5 minute ear massage stimulates nerve endings and lulls your parasympathetic nervous system in to a tranquil state.

Hope you can use these tips to reduce your stress level.

Liz, I didn't know about the beans but an ear massage - oh yeah. Just pulling on your ear lobes 4 or 5 times reduces stress.

Liz,  I like these stress busters.  Many of them I have never heard of.  No wonder I love to put my jammies on as soon I get home!!

Hi Donna, I tried the ear massage, it is relaxing.

Hi Melanie, soft things next to your skin do soothe you don't they?
