“The best way to destress is to talk to people around you”. I have heard this thing my whole life but couldn’t apply it,hello!! that’s an extreme introvert speaking.so,If you find difficulty in sharing to the people around you( like me,ahha iam totally not proud of it,but u know things are things for a reason except we dont know the reasons) …… Anyway,let’s get the ball rollin!!! Hope it helps you…
1. Read the Bible
The Bible contains the word of God that has the power to sway your mind from the gloomy thoughts. The verses would definitely help you get through the toughest times,if you believe in its power and immerse yourself in it.You would get this unexplainable peace and security ,I guarantee.I’ll help you pick some verses to go with in my next post.
2. Spend time with the nature
Nature is the best therapy to everything,do you agree? It has the ability to soothe our mind in the most profound way …Next time you feel sad.. walk through your Garden and try speaking to the plants and flowers….it will give you a sense of relief and stillness.
3. Listen to good music
Well, don’t be one of those fools who starts listening to depressing songs in hard times and then starts whining that even the song is not on her side!!!.Yes,I’ve seen people going for the wrong songs and completely aggravating the situation….choose songs that would impact you positively and give you some real remedy. My favourite is “You’re not alone ” by Michael Jackson. Check it out,it’s a great song( great plus encouraging,uh oh of course an encouraging song is great). ok so here’s a different option,why don’t u try to make your own uplifting music and listen to it …I mean wouldn’t it be fun ?
Well,well … Hey there,this is my favourite part ….. nothing can compare to the immense relief one gets after putting down the bulk out of one’s mind,even if in the smallest piece of paper. This is very helpful, specifically, if you are not an outgoing person but needs detoxifying often. I personally,have been sticking with it since I was a child …yup yup,I am an extreme introvert( hey,I thought I’ve told you in the intro) and iam really glad I found writing long time ago … Oh wait! Did your mind just say you are not good at it and blah blah? …well I hope you know,you’re not writing an article to be published out into the world ,you would probably be using a personal diary,right? Please find out why a personal diary is called a personal diary.No No, it’s not a joke,you really should find out and meditate on the answer,it would give you something beneficial perhaps.I have seen many of my friends,keeping stuffs all inside …they don’t share or write it down ….man!! Is your brain a machine or what?????? Please understand it has its capacity and you need to keep releasing the old info in order to make room for the new ones ….don’t let it become a volcano …..coz when a volcano erupts it affects the sorroundings as well …you probably don’t want to hurt your loved ones because of your issues right? ….so step it up bruh ….and write it outttttt.
5.Speak to your God
In short,Pray. Prayer is a communication to God. You tell him what’s going on in your life and what you would like him to do for you and the best part is, he actually does it for you,if you have a great faith😊 .This is the perfect option if you wanna share it and get the feeling that someone is actually listening to you ….so yay! He is always listening to you …keep praying.
6. Watch a comedy show
This is a short term anti- sadness pill I would say ….I have tried it at times and guess guess what my favourite show is ? Yup,the legendary show “Friends”. It works so well for me,like it soaks all of my sadness when iam watching it…if you would like to suggest me your favourite comedy shows,I’ll be glad to know!!
7. Grab a chocolate
I can see your evil smile. At last you found a valid( it should be coz it’s a matter of your mental state hehe) excuse to force your Mom to buy chocolates for you … overlooking the cavities that every Mom fears😁. It is known to alleviate the mood( works for me as well).A research showed that people who are in depression tend to consume more chocolate . Although,I think it would work kinda like the placebo effect….Try it and if it works for you, well! keep grabbin it ….
8. Share memes on social media
I don’t know if it really works but my best friend says so ….just included it because who knows🤷, it might be a new way to destress hehehe …I don’t recommend it because I feel we are too much dependent on social media in today’s world. Probably that is one of the reason,me and you( hehe), don’t like to communicate with real humans…I personally hate memes( pssst… please keep it a secret,my best friend would totally lash out on me for this coz she is a chronic memes lover.
So so so ….please keep sharing in your own way and release it!! …Don’t let the volcano erupt coz my home might be near to yours!!😉
