February 19th, 2016 by Ryan Sundling
Stress comes at us from all different angles, whether it be money, work, or relationships we all experience some type of stress in our lives from time to time so we could all use a bit of help to relax from the things that stress us out the most. There are plenty of ways to decrease your stress levels, even if for brief periods of time. Let’s relax!
Progressive relaxation will help you from all ten fingers to all ten toes. Tense then release each muscle group in your body (lower arm, upper arm, chest, back, etc.). Relaxing your mind begins with relaxing your body! Along with these stretches it’s always good to practice a good breathing pattern.
Clearing your mind with meditation helps more than you realize. When I tell people I take time within my day to meditate they tend to look at me like I’m crazy. However, I’m always calm throughout my days and that’s because I make that time to meditate. Meditation does not always have to be the stereotypical meditating. Sitting in a dark, quiet room in your apartment with absolutely no interruptions is all you need to meditate! No special poses, hums, or anything are needed. Find yourself a comfortable, relaxed position, forget your thoughts and just relax every part of yourself. SkyVue apartments feature studio apartments in Pittsburgh, PA for ultimate privacy. For outdoor relaxation, SkyVue apartments feature an outdoor courtyard and terrace as well as Sky Lounge, a community space with inspiring VUES of Pittsburgh.

Not only will your stress levels decrease through exercise but your body will obviously benefit from it as well which will boost your confidence. SkyVue apartments in Pittsburgh feature a state-of-the-art 24-hr fitness center facility. Keep your body moving, it will keep your mind off of everything that is stressing you out. Sign up for kickboxing even, you’ll release more stress than you even knew you had!
Treat yourself! Head to the spa and get a massage or a facial to relieve yourself from your daily stresses. Taking a day to spoil yourself from time to time is more important than you think. Stress takes a lot out of us, so put a bit more self-love into your life and you’ll find yourself living a more stress-free life.
Be a happier person. Have you ever noticed how some people are just naturally happy all the time? Surely, they can’t have everything going for them in all aspects of their life. They have to be stressed out too, right? Of course they have things that aren’t going their way! It’s all in how you present yourself and how you treat others. Radiating positivity is a great way to relieve stress from your own life as well as others.
