For you today, we have a list of fun stress reliving or stress management activities for adults, which are guaranteed to make you feel better and de-stressed.
Fun Stress Relieving Activities For Adults
Following are the fun, tried and tested ways of stress management activities that you can afford to do.
De-Clutter And Clean Your Space
So you have a lot of work to do and you’re stressing about how it will be accomplished. Listen to me, clean your space and de-clutter. Yes, Clean your space. This works magically due to two reasons: Firstly, the mind and body feels fresh and good when you a sitting and working in a clean and tidy space. Secondly, our brain is giving us the “We have so much to do!” signal, and if you clean up your space then the brain will sense that you did do and accomplish something, which will signal the “feel good” chemicals and help you relax and focus on your work with a more clear, stress free and open mind.
Channel Your Art Side
Here is a little thing about art: Art is not meant to be perfect, in fact, the only “perfect” art is something which isn’t perfect at all. Art is a communication to which we relate to, and since we are our messy human selves, we relate to the imperfect art the best. So let go of the stress of making imperfect art and instead just take out all your materials and draw, color and create anything and everything. The page is yours!
Plain and simple, just laugh. In explanation, watch a comedy TV show or a clip, or anything that is prone to make you laugh. Laughing is a great stress reliever and it also brings forward a more positive outlook on life. Even if nothing is able to make you laugh, just force it. It will feel quite weird and awkward at first, but gradually you’ll be laughing for real as well.
Swear Your Guts Out
Sometimes we are stressed due to a particular person or a situation. Swearing is proved to be an efficient method for letting out the pent up aggression which is causing stress. Its not the best idea to swear at the person, but swearing in their absence is also quite effective. If that doesn’t work, then you can even swear at just their picture to let out all the frustration and stress.
Go Outside In Fresh Air
We are not born a vampire who get burned in the sun. Next time when you feel severely stressed, head outdoors and sit in the comfortable sunlight and wind. Try walking on the grass with your bare feet. This works pretty well in the night too; take a nice and pleasant walk or a ride on your bicycle. Fresh air can do wonders to our health!
Take A Much Needed Break From Life
Sometimes no remedies and tips seem to work or make us feel stable. Recognize this as the point where you and your mind require a much need break. Light a good scented candle, take a shower and then climb into fresh sheets and read a book, listen to songs or just day dream. These breaks are much needed. If you feel stressed about losing time then tell yourself that if you do not take this break then you wont be able to accomplish anything since your mind will remain clouded.
Talk To A Trusted Friend
Letting our feelings out, despite how small they may seem, can do wonders to our level of stress. Confide in a trusted and close friend, talk to them and tell them how you feel and why you feel stressed. Venting out not only clears the mind but you can feel a lot of the pressure and weight off of your shoulders.
Play Your Favorite Childhood Games
Invite your friends and play all the games you used to love as a child. The games will trigger the memories of an innocent time which will in turn make you feel stressed free and happy. Don’t be shy, it actually works, lose yourself in the game and be a child again for a few moments.
Use Stress Managing Tools
Slime, bubble wrap and flower foam are some of the most famous and effective stress relieving tools. Get yourself either or any of the tools and focus on popping bubbles, squeezing the slime or the wet flower sponge, etc. Don’t worry, if you can’t get these tool then you can always YouTube them. There are many videos that people make with the tools that can reduce stress.
Plan A Mini Vacation
This is an extended version of a break. Plan an affordable, short, mini vacation. Lose yourself into the fun of the adventure. Pack your bags with minimum clothes and just dash out, eat street food, dance and take walks in a different city. You will feel better!
But most importantly, tell yourself again and again, that this is a phase and like everything in life, this too shall pass.
