Your How To Guide: Manage Stress The Easy Way

Last week, I wrote you a nice post giving you The Top 10 Funniest Websites: How To Laugh Yourself Happy, which I have to admit, really works wonders to get a quick smile on your face! This week, I’d like to start you off with some more resources to help you keep those smiles. There are many ways to learn how to manage stress the easy way, so here’s more for you on that.


Over the weekend, I was really inspired to write you about some easy to use mind tools that we all have, but sometimes forget to practice. This morning I finished that article and I’d like to invite you to take a look at the result of it here: The 1 Action Verb To Take You From Stressed To Refreshed. I’ll tell you now that the action verb is gratitude.

How To Manage Stress With Gratitude

In the article, I explain the difference between using gratitude as the noun that it really is and using it as an action verb, which you can make it. As an action verb, it becomes a fast moving vehicle to take you from one state of mind to another, completely higher level of consciousness. It’s much more powerful than we give it credit for being, and the 4 powerful mind tools you’ll find in that article explain its power with actionable steps which you can take today to get that vehicle driving you in the right direction right now.

Taking action gets you on the fast track to managing stress effectively 300x199 Managing Stress The Easy Way: A How  To GuideThere’s really so much to say about the action that this vehicle of movement sets forth that you can surely look forward to closer examination of the details of this type of process in upcoming material. I’ll also make sure to always give you lots of examples and actionable steps that you can take to get you started in the easiest way there is.

Changing Your Personal Beliefs and Inner Belief Systems

Many readers have written to me and also commented here in the blog about advice on changing their belief systems. The power to create effective and life-changing positive affirmations depends largely on your inner belief systems, so the good news is that this is something which you have complete control over. This is such a vital aspect of the key to not only managing stress effectively but also to living your life to the fullest of joy, that I can assure you that I’ll really dedicate a lot of energy in offering you the best resources possible.

Gratitude as an action verb is a fundamental step towards changing your inner belief systems. You can get so many benefits in every aspect of your life from addressing this theme of gratitude in the direction of changing your inner belief systems. All it takes is the decision to start.

-Arthur Ashe

You don’t have to be a great tennis player like Arthur Ashe to put that saying into action. (Thank goodness for that fact! Ahem….speaking for myself, here) There are people all over the world who have overcome enormous difficulties to rise to the occasion of greatness in their lives. That means that you can do it too.

As a matter of fact, later on this week, I have a compelling guest post planned from an author who has not only survived PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome), but has found many keys to living a joyful life in spite of post traumatic stress.

No matter what your situation is, if the power of the universe has brought you to it, then the power of the universe can get you through it, so I strongly encourage you to stick with it so that you get your rainbow after the storm.

You’re not alone. I will be with you every step of the way to nudge you forward on your journey to victory!

3 Tips For A Great Valentine’s Day! Celebrate YOU!

share save 171 16 3 Tips For A Great Valentines Day! Celebrate YOU!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

How To Manage Stress Valentines Day 300x300 3 Tips For A Great Valentines Day! Celebrate YOU!Today is the day of one of the sweetest celebrations of the year, Valentine’s Day.

It’s a time to celebrate love, a time to celebrate compassion, a time to celebrate respect.

Many people who are involved in this wonderful time to celebrate can make it a time to celebrate themselves as well.

Why?

Because although many times, celebratory moments can be stressful when searching for the right gift, the right card and remembering to not forget anyone, when you know how to manage stress, you can let this be a a time for your pure celebration of love……stress-free!

While surfing the web, I’ve uncovered some rather particular celebratory ideas which really stood out. For example, over at Your Tango, a digital media company dedicated to love and relationships, I found it quite interesting that their resident love expert, Melanie Gorman was loving sent a love poem for Valentine’s Day because usually we tend to think of celebrating Valentine’s Day with those closest to us. (i.r.l.)

These types of random acts of kindness are surely appreciated by the recipients, yet it’s often the giver of these random acts of kindness who receives the greatest benefit.

In a different example, maybe you’d like to be whisked away by exotic travel to a new romantic destination. If so, then the CNN report will show you exotic travel locations worth making plans to visit with your significant other. They’ve given you 10 Sweetest Places For A Valentine’s Proposal and I can assure you that those are 10 of the most wonderful places to take your significant other even if you’re not proposing!

However, with all that you will be doing during on this sweet holiday, I would like for you to remember the first place for you to direct your love, compassion and respect.

Remember to honor YOURSELF for this Valentine’s Day!

Since our focus here at Laughs Heal is on showing you how to manage stress effectively through the use of non toxic, non invasive, all natural methods like laughter therapy, among others, I think it’s important for you to remember to make a date with yourself, as well.

Here are some ideas of things you can do to show your love for yourself, which also do wonders to lower your stress levels and enhance your feelings of satisfaction and fulfillment with your life:

3 Tips For A Great Valentine’s Day: Discovering How To Manage Stress

How To Manage Stress Dance 300x207 3 Tips For A Great Valentines Day! Celebrate YOU!1. Set a date with YOU at your favorite coffee shop, trendy restaurant, or cozy spot at home.

Here is where you will indulge yourself in not only eating your tastiest treats with your favorite warm beverage, but you will also take a “Time Out” from external disturbances.
Use this time to read your favorite magazines, inspirational stories, or books. Nurture yourself during this private time and lavish yourself with the stories that add vitality to your thinking process.

2. Write yourself a love letter.

Yes, write down the things you really love about yourself! The more specific you can be, the better. Then seal this love letter away in some special place you might call “your rainy day” spot. This is the letter you will open and read when you are feeling down. I’ve done this many times and found that it really helps you to keep an open mind when things “aren’t so smooth”. It will help you to remember all of the good things about yourself when you really need some fast positive energy.

3. Dance!

Get your favorite playlist together and go to a room where you can be alone and not weary of who sees you. Then pump up the volume and dance yourself happy! Dancing is a great aerobic activity and through this process, endorphins are released.
Endorphins do you a lot of good because they act as neurotransmitters which tell your brain and your body that you are happy. Essentially, your dancing with yourself, alone, where you don’t have to worry of how others view your dancing skills, will lift your spirits and chemically give you a sense of well-being, happiness and joy!

In closing, I will leave you with a beautiful poem by one of my favorites, Lord Byron. This marvelous piece of work is brought to you by The Poetry Foundation and you might want to check it out if you’d like to wow your significant other with a romantic poem.

How To Manage Stress Poetry 300x197 3 Tips For A Great Valentines Day! Celebrate YOU!She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow’d to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair’d the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

- Lord Byron

Here’s to your Valentine’s Day success, pleasure and joy!
