Chill Out Dude! Your health depends on it....
We all know that leading a stressful life-style can have serious side effects, especially on our health. Researchers say that high levels of stress can lead to physical symptoms including headaches, upset stomach, trouble sleeping and an elevated heart rate & blood pressure which can lead to an increased risk of heart disease. It also weakens our immune systems which puts us at greater risk of getting ill.
Many times, as well, when we get over stressed it becomes difficult to think clearly. It's best to try not to make rash decisions when you are over stressed about something. Instead, take some time to think things over -Sleep on it! When I'm working out and not thinking about all the little issues and incomplete tasks or even a major problem, I come up with great solutions and ideas to make things easier simply because the ability to not stress over them has allowed my brain to come up with the solution subconsciously~Sometimes our brains don't need our help.
It is more important now, than anytime in the past, that we take time to 'Chill-Out'! Trust me, I know it is very, very, very difficult to carve out enough time in the day for the things we 'have-to' do let alone the things we 'want-to' do but we must move our 'chill-out' time from the want-to list to need-to list.
Perhaps you can combine this time with something else from one of your lists? I take an hour a day to work-out and I also consider this my 'chill-out' time. Most people would think that's crazy talk but, for me, when I work out I am not thinking of anything but what I'm doing at that specific moment. This is about the only time of day that I don't have 100 other things on my mind so it's definitely a 'Chill-Out' time for me. So not only am I getting the health benefit of staying fit, I'm also getting some time to 'chill-out' and relieving pent up tension and stress from the day.
Here's another great idea! Hire a professional cleaning service to relieve the stress of of a dirty home from your shoulders. You'd be amazed at how relieving it is to come home to a clean house after a long-stressful day at work or just plane old life. I've had customers call and tell me that they were in tears when they came home to a fresh and clean home. Interested? Then give us a call at Clean Right Company for your FREE Estimate!
