Do you find it difficult to calm down and de-stress from work, daily life and the chaotic background noise? In this week’s post I talk about three, simple methods that you can use now to renew your spirit and reduce stress.

Cement walls, a steady stream of traffic, and a world that never seems to rest. It becomes very hard to find a way to seek peace and renew in a world that never ends. Stress and the lack of inner peace is very common among city dwellers and finding a way to manage both can prove to be difficult for many. Is there a way to manage stress? Is there a way to at peace with what is going on around you? Yes, here are three simple methods that can help you to enrich your life.
It is good to first start within your own home. One method that is quite common to help control stress and bring a sense of peace is to create a spot in your home free of distractions. A place where you can sit and allow your mind and body to calm down and let go of the tensions that it has been holding on. Many times we are running around trying to keep up with the hectic pace of life around us and we forget that giving ourselves breathing room is very important.
Make sure your restful place is free of distractions that might bring the stress of life in to your little sanctuary. One important thing to note is to make sure that your electronic devices, including your cell phone is not with you.
Once you have this environment, set yourself a time where you can just sit down and enjoy the blissful quiet and allow your spirit to recharge of the activities of the day. There is no wrong time to do it, just find a moment where you can give yourself time to relax and to let all the worries of the world to vanish for a little while. Maybe leave a book you have been planning to read in your spot so you can read a chapter or two.
If you are more of an outdoors person (or you like more than one way to de-stress), another good method is to find a local park or bike trail where you can walk and experience nature. Being able to listen to the birds, feel the wind on your face and be free of all the distractions of life can really help recharge the soul. There is nothing like seeing a beautiful bird fly by or here the sound of running water to calm the nerves. Nature has been calming people since the beginning, the question is are you looking for it?
The third great method is to simply pace yourself. It might sound like a easy thing to do, but we constantly rush through our daily life forgetting to pace ourselves. If we take the time to enjoy what we are doing and not worrying about the next thing that is coming, you can eliminate a lot of the stress. Take the world in stride and just admire the surroundings. If you live in a big city, you are part of an amazing concrete construct or if you are in the country, you are surrounded by nature’s beauty. You just have to remind yourself through the day to stop, breath, and just let things slide for a minute or two.
Giving oneself a moment to breath is the very important and doing so will not only bring relief from stress, but a feeling of contentment that we all want. It is out there and all you have to do is search for it. Even in the most hectic place, there is a small oasis of calm and tranquility that we can use to make our world a quieter and stress free home.
