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,

  1. Stand up
  2. Start running on the spot (yes, just on the spot!)
  3. 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!
