I found some simple yet effective ways to relieve stress and any pent-up frustrations you may have in your life.2

Stress and frustration can affect us in so many ways so employing these techniques will be great for your mind and body!

1. Journal

Spill your guts to a journal about events in your life and write down exactly what is going on and how itโ€™s affecting you.

Writing about stressful events and how they make you feel can help you sort out and better understand your feelings and allow you to vent no-holds-barred style which can help you feel better and see things clearly rather than bottling it up.

2. Breathing Exercises

When the going gets tough, itโ€™s time to stop and take a breather.

Breathing exercises can help physically feel better and is a great way to relieve frustration.

Controlled and mindful breathing helps oxygenate the blood which in turn helps to relax your muscles and calm your racing mind.2

The great thing about this stress reliever is that you can do this anytime, anywhere!

3. Guided Imagery

One of the most popular methods to relieve frustration and stress is to use guided imagery.

If youโ€™re not familiar with the term, itโ€™s basically focusing and directing your imagination to achieve a desired goal.

Close your eyes, breathe and get into a relaxed state.2

Now imagine the most relaxing environment like lounging on a beach or sitting by a warm fire.2

Imagine all the sounds, scents, and sights of this scene and stay in this environment as long as you want.

Then slowly countdown from 10 to 1 and tell yourself that when you get to one youโ€™ll be refreshed and serene.

The next time you feel like your frustration level is through the roof, try it!
