Nobody wants to live with stress as a constant shadow. Stress can be caused by numerous events, most of which are out of people’s control. It could arise as a result of a drastic change in the social environment. The good news is that there are certain activities which can help alleviate an individual’s stress level. One such activity is exercise, as it improves blood flow and oxygen. Secondly, spending time with loved ones can make a huge difference in someone’s mood. Last but not least, everyone needs to participate in a few activities that are fun and exciting, such as games and exercise. Figure out which of the following activities work best for you to reduce stress.
Exercise helps reduce stress due to the effect it has on the brain. Working out can take your mind off stress, as well as improve blood flow and oxygen levels. It releases endorphins or ‘feel good’ neurotransmitters. In addition to alleviating stress, working out has a positive impact on your overall physical health. Some of the other pros that come from exercise are a boost of energy, blood circulation, and controlled weight. Regular exercise can even help maintain a constant sleep schedule. Given the long listen of benefits, exercise is highly important in one’s day-to-day life. It both reduces stress and helps you maintain a healthy life.
Strong relationships with loved ones can help people get through stressful situations. Sometimes, all that is needed is a hug and talking out a rough time with a friend or family member. Getting your thoughts off your chest is always beneficial in these types of situations. Moreover, relationships with family and friends will influence people to make the life choices that they do. A supportive friend, for instance, will tell you when you are about to make a bad life decision, even if you don’t realize it. Your loved ones want the best for you. Thus, they will encourage you to live your best life; a life that is devoid of stress.
Participating in fun activities, such as games, will further help reduce stress. The Escape Room Indy is an example of one such game. It is an Escape Room game where participants can solve mysteries in different rooms, each with its own unique storyline. It’s a fun activity that helps people take their minds off any stress and focus on solving the puzzle at hand.
Letting stress go unattended can have consequences on your health. As nobody wants to live in negativity or sadness, it’s important to help alleviate those moments when they come along. This can be done through some of the points mentioned previously, such as exercising, spending time with loved ones and participating in various different types of games. These are the activities that can drastically improve someone’s mood, and even if they don't make stress disappear, they will help the situation. Even the smallest amount of time spent on your wellbeing and doing activities you love can have an effect on your mental health.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!

There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create.
