5 instant stress busters

12 Jul

Our super-busy schedules and hectic lifestyle have made our lives pretty stressful. The following are 5 instant stress busters that will brighten up your mood on the go.

1) Add colour to your life

Colours have a significant impact on our mood. Bright colours tend to make us happy while darker shades have a much sober effect. Adding some colour to your wardrobe or your surrounding can be a pleasant change. So take out that bright pink lipstick or neon nailpolish that is lying in your drawer. Now is the right time to use it.

2) Listen to peppy music

This is an immediate mood-lifter. Peppy songs can instantly fill you with energy and liveliness. So what are you waiting for? Turn up the music, put on your dancing shoes and start grooving!

3) Indulge in your favourite dessert

Treat yourself with your favourite dessert and stress will melt away as it will melt in your mouth. Chocolate and its derivatives do this trick for me.

4) Exercise

Some exercises, particularly aerobic exercises, are believed to stimulate endorphine production which is basically a feel-good chemical. So next time you feel stressed out just go for a walk or jog. You’ll feel better. In fact, make exercise a part of your daily routine for long-term benefits.

5) Go shopping

This is one activity every woman (and some men) love to do untiringly. Nothing can beat the happiness and excitement which you experience while splurging money on yourself and pampering yourself. Its okay to spend money on yourself once in a while. Don’t feel guilty and be your shopaholic self when under stress.

Just give your stress wings and let it fly away! πŸ™‚
