Ways To Regain Focus To Help Relax And Relieve Stress

Having too many things on your to-do list can increase stress levels. From managing working at home, the kids, daily chores, and those honey do's that are on the backburner, it's easy to feel like, any time you try to relax, your mind gets bogged down about everything you need to do, and you start to feel guilty. Hence, you want to focus on what you can control and learn to prioritize. You can't do everything, and that is OK!

Find Your Me Time-And Enjoy It
Whether you have a family to take care of or spend a lot of your time working (or both), it can often feel like you rarely get a moment just to yourself. However, taking some time just for yourself without having to deal with anyone else is essential if you want to be able to function appropriately in the long term.

Something as simple as spending only 15 minutes alone every day, without distractions, can be a savior to those who feel overwhelmed. It can be things as simple as...
  • Taking a walk
  • Listening to your favorite music
  • Reading a book
  • Making the perfect bubble bath
  • Meditation
  • Watch a movie

You Need To Learn How To Say No
One of the things that many of us seem to find incredibly tricky is being able to say no when people ask something of us. Now, a lot of the time, this isn't a terrible thing. After all, being able to be there for people is an excellent quality to have. But if you're trying to be everything for everyone, then you're just going to end up with some serious problems down the line. The truth is that there's nothing wrong with saying no sometimes. If you can't prioritize your own wellbeing, you're never going to be able to do anything for other people.

Clutters Causes Choas
Did your mother ever use the phrase "a tidy house makes a tidy mind" to get you to clean your room? Well, get ready to feel seriously irritated because it turns out she was right. If your environment is in chaos, then being able to turn off your mind and relax will be a lot more complicated. The truth is keeping a tidy and clean home is going to allow you to get into the mindset of relaxing far more quickly than if you are surrounded by clutter.  Staying on top of things like chores isn't exactly the most exciting or fun thing in the world, but it can make your life more comfortable in the future.

  • Better sleep
  • Decreases anxiety and stress levels
  • Gives you more energy
  • Physical shape
Why you need to learn to ask for help by barbies beauty bits

Learn To Ask For Help
Medical professionals often identify social support as a critical component of strong psychological health. Unfortunately, many have difficulty asking for help, or even having someone we can vent too. You should not be ashamed to ask for help. Having a close friend or a loved one to lean on, gives you a chance to bitch, cry, hug, or even find ways to laugh about your problems.

This close group can help in other ways besides offering a lending ear, for example

  • If someones offers support, take it
  • When they ask what they can do for you, tell them
  • Take the kids to their grandparents for the weekend, (heck they raised you)
  • Let your husband cook dinner
  • Have a girls night of wine and pampering

The reality is that none of us can get by without at least a little help from those around us, and you must take advantage of that fact.
