Stress isn't always noticeable just by looking at someone. Some of the top concerns we stress out about include money, projects at work, job security, relationships, and health issues. Exposure to long term stress can cause a number of physical and mental health concerns, including headaches, difficulty sleeping, depression, anxiety, and more. In fact, the American Institute for Stress claims that:
"I listen to relaxing music when I take a break for lunch or a snack."
Go for a walk in nature! Even if it's 5 minutes, the fresh air does wonders.
"Reading my favorite book in my most comfortable chair."
"Spending time near the shore to listen to the waves and appreciate nature."
"I grab the dog and cuddle up on the couch when I feel stressed."
"I take a few moments to focus on slowing down my breathing."
