In this short article, learn two interesting ways to reduce stress naturally that costs you almost nothing and may be more effective than solutions that cost you way more money. Lets jump straight in and go to method number 1.
Something to be aware of, if you want to manage stress, and this is a very simple idea which is very easy to actually do, is to write down three things you are grateful for every night. Ideally you would write these down every night in a journal of some kind and ideally you are looking for three things. However if you can not think of three things, do not stress out about it. 🙂 If you think of two or one or none that is OK. The important thing is that you searched. Searching helps by making the brain do some work.
Stressed Out? Learn Interesting Ways To Reduce Stress
If you are stressed out and want to learn interesting ways for managing stress, write down 3 things you are grateful for every night. For instance you could be grateful for a bright sunny day in which you enjoyed a number of enjoyable activities, you might have enjoyed a walk or a run during the day, you might have enjoyed meeting up with someone either in the ‘real world’ for example in a coffee shop or in the ‘virtual world’ for example a facebook chat with an old friend who lives on the other side of the planet.
By writing these things down, remember to every so often to take time out and review a number of your entries. You then remember them with joy and happiness and that helps with stress levels. As well as that, say you had an entry reporting that you enjoyed a day with friends at the zoo, and you have not gone to the zoo for some time, maybe you might think that visiting the zoo with your family might be a good activity. 🙂

Still Stressed Out? Here Is Another Interesting Way To Reduce Stress
Lets continue on to method number 2. If something is stressing you out right now, asking yourself silently the “will this be important in 5 years time” question and discovering that the answer is usually no, helps to reduce stress. What has really changed? Nothing, just how you are processing it. Call it a mind trick, however it is one that works more often than not, and is one well worth using if you are stressed.
As you can see, both of these solutions are pretty easy to do straight away. You should consider adding both of them to your list of stress management techniques which you can then use as required.

Learning A Number Of Stress Management Techniques In An Online Course Setting
The above two techniques are great, however it you need to learn a number of different stress management techniques in ‘little daily chunks’ for 28 days (or more because the course is self paced), I recommend the online Conscious Stress Management Course. This is a great way to learn a number of different techniques. The course itself encourages you to start doing some techniques on a regular basis to help keep stress at bay. 🙂
