For a long time, many of us associated health with our bodies and being physically fit, but the tide is turning and mental health is now firmly on the agenda. The definition of health covers mental, physical and social wellbeing. In this guide, we’ll discuss one of the most common mental health issues, stress. If you find it hard to cope with stress, here are some remedies to try.

Exercise

Exercise offers an array of amazing benefits for our bodies, but it is also an incredibly powerful tonic for mental health and wellbeing. Physical activity is proven to lower stress levels, and it can also improve sleep quality, lift your mood and help you control and manage your emotions. From activities like yoga, Pilates and swimming that can aid relaxation to fast-paced workouts like boxing, HIIT sessions and spin classes that are excellent for channeling anger or frustration, you can vary activities to suit your mood and make working out more fun.

Fresh air

Many of us have been spending more time at home than usual in the last 18 months. While there are benefits of being at home, it’s beneficial to get out and about and take time away from your couch or desk. Fresh air can make you feel more alert and energetic, and being in the great outdoors can improve your mood and help to reduce stress. Even if you only have time for a short walk each day, you’ll feel better if you take that break and enjoy a change of scenery.

Herbal supplements and remedies

Stress has become more common in recent years and people are open to trying a wide range of solutions and therapies, including natural remedies and herbal supplements. There is a broad spectrum of remedies to try, and there is a wealth of information online for those who are keen to find out more. You can check out articles like this Kratom Bible or read blogs or posts on reputable websites about the potential uses, benefits and side effects of different types of supplements or remedies. If you are thinking about trying something new to try and alleviate stress, it’s wise to consult your doctor first.

Meditation

Meditation is an ancient technique, which encourages you to refocus and reset your mind to reduce stress and anxiety and make you feel calm, serene and relaxed. You can meditate alone, join a group or follow a guided meditation online. It’s possible to meditate almost anywhere, and you can choose how long you want to meditate for. Meditation can be beneficial for people who have hectic schedules, as well as those who find it hard to switch off or unwind after work.
