A simple lifestyle can help you stress less in the New Year.
It’s hard to believe, but we’re already a month into 2016! That means you probably have a pretty good idea of how you’re going to do with your New Year’s resolutions. For some of them, you just need some self-discipline to keep, but others might be a little trickier. If you’re trying to cut out stress, you might be at a loss. We can help! If you want to stress less in the year ahead, consider implementing a simple lifestyle.
A simple lifestyle is exactly what it sounds like. You cut out the clutter, both physically and mentally. That might mean shrinking your closet to a reasonable size or turning off the TV so you’re not living in a state of constant distraction. Minimizing your stuff, and easy entertainment can also help you minimize your stress.
Living simply will help you unplug. When you don’t have the habit of turning on your TV or logging into your social media, your brain isn’t constantly overstimulated. That pesky blue light is causing some serious damage! Turing off electronics makes it easier for you to rest, and rest is crucial in fighting stress.
Having less to stimulate you will also leave you looking for ways to amuse yourself. For a lot of people, this leads to creative pursuits. Instead of flipping through your phone, you might find yourself painting, learning guitar, or tackling that hike you’ve always wanted to finish. Then, when life gets stressful, you can turn to this creative outlet to blow off steam in a healthy and productive way!
