You never know or can expect stuff that can stress you through the day. There is also not enough time or adequate space to vent out your feeling when you are having a busy day at work or at home. The result is that stress piles up and you get more tired and irritated at the end of the day. You are either in a bad mood, or sulk and go to sleep with all the ill feelings and negative emotions stored up in you. Stress that is not being dealt with at an early stage can be harmful to your well-being at a later age. It is always important to distress yourself before you go to sleep and here are a few ways to do that.

1. Spend time with your family

If work is the root cause of your stress, then leave behind your work related stress at the office and spend some quality time relaxing with the family. If you have kids, take an active interest in what they did during the day. Spend some couple time with your spouse. Try not to bring work tension into your house. Kids and dogs can be great stress busters.

2. Go out with friends

In case it is the family that stresses you out a lot, you can go out with your friends. With them you can be free and complain about the office or bad mouth people and feel free. Go for a drink or two to unwind, but also make sure that you do not make it a habit.

3. Have a long hot bath

Having a long soak, not only relaxes and cleanses your body, but also gives you a lot of time to think over things. It is just you, so you can think about what had really happened in the day that had stressed you out and you can also come up easily with solutions to your problems.

4. Go for a run

Running or walking or just jogging is also a great stress buster. Exercising releases sweat and built up stress in your body. If you have some company or go to a gym to work out, its all the more better as you will have people to talk to and vent out your feelings.

5. Watch a stupid movie

The advantages of watching a stupid movie are many. As you begin watching a stupid movie, you become engrossed in wondering how someone can waste so many resources making a dumb movie that you would forget about your stress and start laughing out loud instead. Never underestimate the power of laughter as a distressing agent.

Always keep in mind, the old adage that ‘this too shall pass’. No trouble or crisis is too big or too important to stress about and waste your precious time. Find ways to de stress and you will automatically come up with solutions to your problems too. Stress Is a major killer and its best you find your own ways to deal with it and be de-stressed after a hard day.
