Capital Monday

How to: Keep calm and relax in busy times

Hi guys, today I want to show you how I try to manage my stress levels on a daily base. My mean goal is to Keep calm and relax, even in busy and stressful times. I gathered five points for you, that worked very well for me in the past. Maybe you can get something out of it too!

Cancel appointments

This is the first big thing you have to do, if you want to destress. When your agenda is a little bit emptier, you will find some time for yourself. Do things, you normally don’t have the time for. For example: to read a book or get to bed early. Most people don’t mind when you have to cancel your appointment with them. Especially when you tell them why.

Get enough sleep

A good night sleep can change te world… really! You feel more energetic, cheerful and even happier when you got your 8 hours of sleep. Also you will start seeing issues with a different view and put thing in perspective easier. Like you can rule the world again. Well, at least I feel this way!

Meditate to keep calm and relax

It sounds a little bit woolly but it really isn’t. When I go crazy from all the thoughts that are running through my head, I really want to clear all of them out. So I get my mediation pillow, close my eyes in quiet room and I send my attention straight to my breathing for like 10 minutes. Tip! Use the Calm application that you can download on your smartphone. With this app you can choose a lot of different kind of meditation forms and there is always a woman’s voice telling you what tot do. Easy right?!

Read a book

Maybe you heard it before, but a book works more relaxing then watching TV. There are so many impressions your brain has to process while binge watching your favorite series. You can say that you could get more stressed out when you’re already experience stress. So I can recommend you to read more, try to figure out what your favorite genre is and you can’t put those books away anymore.

Listen to relaxing music

My favorite ‘Keep calm and relax’ tip is listing to music and even sing along. It helps you to release the tightness in your body and mind. When I come home from work on friday I have to put on some music to relax. It even helps me to write my artikels even more. These are the artist I like to listen at friday of in the car back home: Lady Gaga (to get my frustrations out), Lana Del Rey (to get totally relaxed), Beth Hart (always a good idea), Joss Stone, Børns, Muse, Jason Mraz and Selah Sue. Go check them out if you want to try something different.
