The De-stress Checklist

Posted by Rebecka

Since it’s #StressAwarenessMonth, we at The Goodness Project thought it was time we talked about stress, and more importantly, how to decrease stress.

We all know how it feels to be stressed, and how pressure can build up until it all feels too much. There's a lot of things that could happen between work and personal life and it's easy to get overwhelmed.

It’s time to pull the brakes, slow down and deal with what’s causing the sudden stress in your life. So in honour of #StressAwarenessMonth, we at The Goodness Project have created a de-stress checklist to give you some ideas on how to decrease your stress and relax.

The de-stress checklist

  1. Get enough sleep

If you’re stressed out, it’s more important than ever to get enough sleep. Having a good night's rest will make sure that you have the energy to tackle the coming day. So put down your phone and go to bed an hour earlier to make sure you get that well-needed rest.

  1. Journal

Sometimes, just getting your worries down on paper could ease your stress. When you write down your worries, you no longer need to walk around with a head filled with clutter.

  1. Treat yourself to a day off

Take a day off and spend some time taking care of yourself.  You could take a long bath, make yourself a cup of tea, or read a good book. Perhaps even treat yourself to some energising snacks Chocolate and Snacks.

  1. Meditate

There’s no better way to bring you back into the present moment than by meditating. All you have to do is stay present and allow yourself some room to breathe and after a few sessions, you'll hopefully feel a decrease in stress.

  1. Don’t beat yourself down!

Don’t be hard on yourself just because you’re feeling down! It’s fine to be stressed now and then, and when you feel overwhelmed you deserve a break. So don’t be being harsh to yourself, accept that you’re feeling stressed at the moment and give yourself that well-needed break.

  1. Treat yourself to a snack

You’re worth it. Treat yourself to something nice! Here at The Goodness Project, we've recently released a new Spring Fever Snack Box filled with snacks that scream self-love! Oh, and if you’re more of a chocolate lover, we’ve also put together an Organic Chocolate Gift Hamper that’s perfect to try on a relaxing evening with your favourite tv show on.
