    These are some great ideas! As a single mom that’s homeschooling and running two businesses I’m always on the lookout for ideas like these. Thank you

    The power naps are my literal savior these days. Thank goodness I drive to work. I manage to sneak out every now and again which allows me to roll up under a tree and take a ten minute nappucino. People don’t understand the importance of sleep and I think that it can really take a toll on their health in general.

    Thanks for sharing and hopefully some people, in addition to myself, take your words to heart!

      LOL, a nappucino sounds so good that I could do with one right now! We usually call these power naps and just like the average caffeine beverage and specially the espresso, it will give us an energy boost. The impact of sleep is not only in terms of the number of hours, but also depends on the quality and at what time your head hits the sack. It is said that 11pm-1am is the crucial time to sleep as that’s the time your main organ tissues are repairing themselves and being in deep sleep will help them along.

    Sleep is a big one for me. I’ve been known to slip under my desk at work for a 10-minute power nap every now and then, it really makes a difference. You’ve got some great tips here, Moon, thanks for sharing 🙂

    Hi Moon

    What a great article. I could definitely use some of these methods especially travel and a massage would be nice. Another way I relieve stress is to go for a scuba dive. Being weightless in the serenity of the water is extremely relaxing to me. Just to float around and hear all the wildlife that is under the water as they move around and eat. Thanks so much for sharing this article, oh yes and great pencil drawing, I can not draw very well at all. So I wish u good health and well being. 🙂

      Scuba diving is so cool! I love the way you describe it. There is something else I like to do in the water too, I would roll myself up into a ball and just float along, great stress reliever! 🙂 So I guess we have the same concept, being afloat and weightless in water seems like having all our troubles lifted from our shoulders.

      Aww Melani you touched me with your praises! Thank you!

      I have a question for you, when you are hungry and tired at the same time, which would you choose to do first? Eat or sleep? 🙂

    Hi, Moon
    Thank you for this article! I enjoyed it and now I have new ideas for my website. 🙂 I also write articles about stress relief. You can read my blog post about my favorite activities that help me to reduce stress and anxiety.
    I love to read and write (poems, stories, diary and blog too) for stress relief. For me, very important is meditation. I agree with your 10 ways to reduce stress, but you can add meditation and reading to this list
    Thank you again for this great information!

      Meditation and reading provide good stress relief too! Meditation always let us reflect upon ourselves and quieten our mind so we see clearly, that way, we solve our issues faster because after meditation, we get to the root of the problem easily and it really helps. People who love to read will always find solace in books. Books never fail to get me lost into fantasy worlds and it’s good to escape from reality from time to time.

    Hi I love your ideas 🙂 especially the last one. A good nice massage/spa always perks me up! Another way I destress is to talk to someone.Somehow I feel kind of relief after unloading what’s on my mind.

      Yes, talking always helps Wendy. I find this is true for many females as we love to communicate and share ideas. I have heard that when girls talk about problems, we don’t really expect to solve it, just expressing our feelings out loud help relieve a lot of stress and unpleasantness. When we talk about issues, we are not actually looking for solutions, rather we want a listening ear and some empathy, that’s why females are always very supportive.

    Hello Moon,
    What a genius post! I love it. The suggestions are very practical and common sense.
    It is enjoyable, interesting and motivating. I too cope with stress, lack of sleep working
    through after midnight. My exercise program and hobbies keep me balanced for the
    most part.
    I agree with all your 10 ways to cope with stress.
    Very well written.
    Jen

      Hi Jen, thanks for the compliments! Stress is a very common problem for most people and it can make us so tired and caused us health problems too. When we are too stressed we tend to fall sick easily and then we feel even worse. In extreme cases, this might lead to depression, so it’s always good to address the problem as it occur. Quickly find a way to de-stress first and then deal with the actual problem you are facing.

    Thank you for this article =) These are very helpful indeed especially 1, 5, 9 and 10.. hehehe =) When I am stressed, I really tend to rest to rejuvenate… number 5 is me writing and developing my website as a new hobby, and 9 and 10… the ultimate stress reliever, to travel and to be pampered at the same time =) I love how you managed to break down all these stress relieving methods… these are really true and 100 percent effective =) Maybe if I’ll add one more, as number 11, it will be me praying and finding spiritual solitude… this also helps me release my stress and anxiety from this chaotic and fun world =) Again, thanks for this =)

      Hey JR, I love your No. 11 recommendation, I should do Top 20 post, so many people have given me ideas here. Having time for solitude is very important and you have just reminded me that I have implemented this on a regular basis. Before hitting the pillows at night, I usually do some quiet meditation with my son. I treat this as bonding time and something to settle our busy mind. I have not thought of it as a stress reliever, so thanks 🙂
