Stress Release

Stress is a topic that comes up very frequently in almost everyone’s life. There is always a chance of losing a job, not having any money to pay for a person’s wants and needs, or even finding the right person to spend the rest of your life with. Every person handles their stress differently and it all depends on their levels of stress; there is numerous ways of dealings with theses stresses. The blog Five Easy Ways to Reduce your Stress Today that gives five ways to deal with stress and how to overcome high stress levels in public places. The first tip is to take breaks about every two hours from your work or homework; it is important that your brain gets the required oxygen that you don’t get while you are sitting. Also, in that tip it states a simple walk for a few minutes and just a good laugh can help. The second technique refers to breathing exercises. Eating spicy foods, the third tip, is also a way for the brain to relax. Then, the fourth tip was suggests eating healthy and exercising to reduce your stress. The last and final tip is using a biofeedback machine that helps one bring down his/her stress. When stress comes, it can be helpful to try these methods. I have tried some of these methods and can relate to them, but I can also find some methods a bit crazy.
There is a couple of methods I agree with and plan on using to lower my stress levels. The first technique listed is a subject that I can relate to; I often take breaks during my homework and, come back to work on it later. A break gives me an opportunity to clear my mind and possibly think of better ideas to expand my paper. However, I do find it hard sometimes to take a break when I am rushing to get my work done because I have other things I have to do like go to work or study for another class. I do agree very much with this technique, when and if it is possible it works very well. In addition technique I find that it the most one I can relate to states that dieting, getting enough sleep, drinking plenty of water and exercising will help reduce your high stress levels. I have experienced this technique and it works well too. When I get stressed out, I go and get on the elliptical to clear my mind, or (when I played softball) I would go out in the garage and hit off my softball tee. One thing I find interesting in this tip is that it tells you to stretch because this too releases stress. I plan on trying to add stretching to my daily list of things to do so I can try and release some stress.
When reading technique three, I really was shocked to find out that spicy foods actually get a person to think clearer. In tests, it is to be found that spicy foods cause your brain to release hormones which, helps to relieve stress. If I would have known this earlier in my college career, I would have ate chili everyday about three times. However, in the end of the description Destin Lewis tells one to steer clear of a lot of spicy foods because it causes ulcers, which I bet are even more pain than the stress.
I found one technique that I thought was extreme and probably would not do to release stress. Breathing in and out through one nostril, I view as a little crazy. It tells one to plug one nostril and breathe in through the other nostril and out with your mouth. Now I have heard of breathing in through the nose and out with the mouth, but to plug one nostril. At the end of the tip, it tells one to avoid doing this tip if the person has a cold; I find that part funny because when I have a cold I can’t breathe out my nose anyways.
This last and final technique I found strange; I never new that a machine could help one with stress. The author states “These devices train you to control a biological process such as heart rhythm in order to become habitually more relaxed” ( Easy Ways).I, myself, would not hook my body up to a machine to release stress; I think I would try to release it by the other techniques before relying on a machine to make me better.
Ultimately, Destin Lewis, the author of the blog, uses an easy format for the reader. The blog is listed in bullets, so it is easier for the reader to understand the techniques. The author of the blog explains the techniques well, so people can use them if they wanted. I wish that the author would have put more ways to reduce stress, and maybe even explained how he reduces stress.
I find it gives good techniques on how to deal with stress because it is easy to read, I clearly understood the blog. However, when one has a lot of stress I think these might now work. When one is dealing with stress, he/she have to minimize it and hope he/she doesn’t get overwhelmed. I believe that I am going to take the exercise tip and place that into my life again. I am hoping that these tips I learned will help me reduce my stress levels and possibly become a calmer person.
