Stress Management – a 3-min game!
Stress can be very disturbing and frustrating not to say devastating sometimes.
One of the proven ways to reduce stress is to practice a physical activity. It releases feel-good endorphins, your body will feel energised and your blood will be flowing through your entire body. Ii will also, most probably, distract you from your worries.
Here is a very simple game that can be done in 3-mins.
If you feel stressed, cannot sleep, cannot focus, cannot stop your little inner voice,
- Stand up
- Start running on the spot (yes, just on the spot!)
- Carry on for 3 mins (and do not stop!!)
You’ll see it will make you realise how long 3-mins are, you will have re-oxygen your body and with a bit of luck, you might have even smiled at how long 3-mins can be or how silly you looked running on the spot in a, potentially, very unpractical place (who cares!).
Now, take a few deep breaths and carry on whatever you were doing.
For me the other day, it was sleeping — it works amazingly well!
Have a go!
