Stress Relief Tip 08 May 2009

Here is your Heaven On Earth Stress Relief Tip for this week!

You've heard that "music soothes the savage beast" or "whistle a happy tune and you'll feel less afraid."

It's very true that music does wonderful things for reducing stress.

We live in a very busy, fast-paced world, and your heart tries to keep up with whatever is going on in the environment around it. If you're working in a very busy, fast-paced, noisy office, your heart actually beats a little faster trying to keep up with everything that's going on, and that can lead you to feel stress.

If you can have a little iPod on your desk, or play background music (on a CD player or on your computer), play some classical or New Age music. Both these music styles will help you feel more relaxed. Especially at the end of your day, go home and play a soothing CD; put your feet up for a while and just let the stress of the day wash away.

Another thing you can do that really enhances how well you feel, reduces stress and makes you feel good, is to sing. It's musical again, but this time you're part of the process; you're involved in improving how you feel. [You're Creating Good Health!] If you sing a nice, fun , upbeat-tempo song, you will reduce the level of stress hormones and increase your level of healthy, feel-good hormones!

So, Sing a happy song, an have a heavenly weekend!
