10 Proven Ways to Clear Your Mind of Stress

A survey of 2,500 adults found that almost half said they had experienced a major stressful event in the last year. Stress seems to be an inevitable part of our lives. While sometimes it can be really healthy, too much of it can have some pretty detrimental effects on our health.

So how can you escape the harmful effects of stress? Here are 10 proven ways to clear your mind of stress.

1. Talk about it to clear your mind of stress

Instead of keeping it all in, talk about it. Keeping everything to yourself can only add to your stress. Discussing your issues will help to relieve some of the pressure, and can even help you come to a solution. And of course, the person you talk to can also help you see the problem in a different light.[1]

What to do: Sit with a friend, family member, or even a stranger and just talk. Don’t think of it as burdening someone else with your problems, but rather asking someone for help. Chances are, you’ll find yourself feeling much lighter without all the stress weighing you down.
