Newsflash: the key to eliminating stress is reducing it. We know what you’re thinking, “But I’ve got deadlines, mouths to feed, relationship troubles, topped off with very little time for sleep!” We hear you, and we understand. Regardless of where you travel in the world, you’ll be hard pressed to find someone else that doesn’t share at least a few stress-inducing issues in their life. The most important factor, then, is to realize that stress is a natural by-product of life, and while these factors can’t completely be eradicated, you can learn to rise above and figuratively soar along a stress-free path. 

How do you do that, you ask? Follow these valuable steps:

1. Learn to Be Mindful

Three key practices to employ in living a more mindful life are working on developing focus, clarity, creativity, and compassion. These practices are meditation, reflections, and purposeful pauses. Practicing mindfulness allows us to be fully present in our life and work, and improve our quality of life.

2. Exercise (Even For a Minute)

You don’t need to spend hours at the gym or train for a marathon. A short walk around the office or simply standing up to stretch during a break at work can offer immediate relief in a stressful situation. Getting your blood moving releases endorphins and can improve your mood almost instantaneously.

3. Do Less

Yes, it can really be that simple. You can train yourself to do less (or nothing!) and be completely content with it. Find areas in your day where you’re over-scrutinizing or piling on unnecessary tasks—and stop doing them. You can de-clutter your life and still be in control. 

4. Eat Well

Think of the rainbow, now think about your food. How colorful is the variety of food you eat? If you’re hovering around yellow hues, you’re probably not eating as well as you could be. Food is fuel for your life. The better you eat, the better you will feel. It is core to health and should be central to your goal for a happier, more positive and stress-free life. 

5. Call a KEEN Psychic

There is no one better to guide you through the stresses of life than your personal psychic advisor. KEEN psychic advisors are highly qualified in providing you guidance topped with unmatched insight into any situation. If you feel you’ve reached a bump in the road, the positive and intuitive guidance of your KEEN psychic will empower you to move ahead with confidence and remain grounded. But why wait until you have a problem? Call now.

Let us also point out for the record, that while the tips above should help you in living a more relaxed life, not all stress is negative. Sometimes, the potential stress of an event causes us to push ourselves and increase performance, for example in presenting during a meeting or sitting in an exam. Other stressful events, like a wedding, a newborn child, or the purchase of a house, can tremendously change our lives for the better. So perhaps it’s helpful to note that, while you do your best in eliminating stress from your life, remember that the key to happiness is balance all-around. A happy mind, happy heart, and happy soul are the true keys to a stress-free life.
