First, know what stress is

We have written in depth about stress, but simply, stress is the body and mind's response to 10,000's of thoughts, feelings and emotions. When we are struggling with a task, when things aren't working out as we expected, or when we're not making any progress, this creates stress. Additionally, when we can't accept things as they are it compounds the stress.

6 tips to help you get rid of stress from your body and mind

1. Practice discarding meditation

This meditation is about discarding - which means you can discard thoughts, feelings and emotions from the body and mind. Through self reflection, letting go, and repetition, you can gradually eliminate the stress. This will eliminate the root cause of stress, and you'll find things which previously caused stress no longer do. It is well documented the meditation is a powerful, natural tool for reducing stress.

2. Manage your time and energy

Plan your days and prioritize tasks to eliminate overthinking throughout the day. Perform your most stressful tasks during periods of the day where you have optimum energy, and break up your day with exercise when your energy levels are low. Take time to exercise as the release of endorphins will wash away built up stress, and eat a healthy diet that matches your body type and exercise regime.

3. Develop a mental strategy

Create a process that works for you and fits your own mind. Ask yourself as a series of questions to process the stress, for example:

"Is this thought the truth or is it being caused by a past experience?"

"Can I do anything right now to change it?"
