Scents and aromas can help reduce your stress. Smelling items like eucalyptus, peppermint oil, lavender, thyme, oils of anise, bay, and rose can soothe you. Using a small vial, mix rock salt and add a few drops of whatever oil you have chosen. If you are under stress, simply open the container, and breathe in the aroma.
If you can't get to the calming beach, imagine you are there. Studies have shown that visualizing calm situations is a great stress reducer in itself. Next time you begin to feel overwhelmed, take five minutes and imagine yourself in a soothing bath, on a sun drenched beach or in a beautiful forest. You may find the stress a little less overwhelming.
In order to deal with your stress, consider calling a free stress hotline. This is important because the counselors you will speak to are trained in how to help you manage your stress and are there for you. Sometimes you are not able to deal with everything on your own and need help.
A great tip that can help you keep your stress levels down is to take a little time out and appreciate your surroundings. Look out the window and try to notice things you've never noticed before. Spacing out like this can help you keep your stress levels down.
