Stress Relief & Healthy Lifestyle Tips

With midterm exams, and grades passing we know everyone can get stressed out. We found some solutions to help you relieve stress! Here are few tips on how to relieve your stress:

Light candles

  • When lighting a candle, it can create a stress free bliss.

Drink Tea

  • Drinking tea is known for relieving stress!

Baking or Cooking

  • Baking cupcakes, cookies, or cakes can be super fun and help you relieve stress! The delicious smells can bring warmth to you and others.

Deep breathing exercises

  • Focus your attention on your breath, and be mindful of how it feels to raise your chest and fill your lungs, and then to slowly exhale. Notice any tension in your neck, shoulders, or elsewhere in your body, and release that tension with your exhaling breath.

We know at times everyone can be stressed out and need someone to talk to, here is a website that can help you. If you are on campus, you can visit Sindcuse Health Center or visit the WMU Health and Wellness website.

They also provided some Wellness Tips for you as well. Visit the WMU Wellness Tips website to see more.
