3 Easy Ways To Bust Stress

It’s not easy being a millennial. So many life pressures: your parents are on your case 24/7, you’re under the pump at work (the one that doesn’t pay you nearly enough, right?) and everything is just SO EXPENSIVE. Petrol is expensive, the MRT doesn’t take you directly to where you need to go, the traffic jams get in your way and generally, your weeks just don’t go your way at. All.

Getting too wound up to function? Cast your mind back over the last week, and chances are, you can pinpoint all those times you want to (simultaneously) cry, shout, curl up into a fetal position, send off a couple of blisteringly honest emails or rocking the work vending machine until it coughed up a Snickers.

Okay, chill. We hear you. Here are three very surprisingly simple ways for you to get a grip. And it involves much less than a handful of pill.

1. BELLY BREATHE

When you’re too emotional to tackle the challenge positively, try a short-term fix instead. Five minutes of belly-breathing can trick your brain into thinking that it’s super Zen. Also, pounding the pavement for half an hour or jotting down in a diary are much better band-aids than having a drink or futile Facebook session.

Studies have also shown that helping someone else not only makes you seem nice, but reduces your stress levels by taking the focus off your own personal sh*tstorm for a moment.

Set a time limit so you don’t feel like you’re running away from the problem. Once the time’s up, face the pain again.
