5 Natural Ways to Beat Stress

5 Natural Ways to Beat Stress

Life can be stressful. While it’s not realistic to try and rid your life of stress completely, you can find ways to minimise and manage it. Here are 5 natural ways to beat stress.

  1. Move your body

Whether it’s a walk in nature, dancing to your favourite music, or taking a dip in the pool, exercise can really help you beat stress. It improves resilience as well as releasing feel-good hormones that lift your mood and reduce tension. Move your body as often as you can.

  1. Meditate

Meditation helps bring you into the moment and stops you thinking about the past or worrying about the future. It also helps reduce the level of stress hormones in your body which can cause inflammation and health problems like heart disease. There are some great meditation apps online. Find a short meditation that suits you, light a candle or some incense, lie on your bed, and just breathe.

  1. Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy helps you beat stress by calming your nervous system. The olfactory nerve, which travels from your nose to your brain, sends signals to the parts of your brain that affect memory, emotions, and mood. Essential oils calm the nerve, which has a calming effect on the brain. Here are the oils you should try to reduce stress:


Ylang Ylang


Clary Sage




Sweet Basil

Holy Basil


  1. Get out your yoga mat

Yoga can keep you fit and flexible but it also does wonders for your mind. It calms the nervous system and balances your hormones which can make you more resilient to stress.

  1. Sip some calming tea

If you’re a tea lover, you’ll be glad to know that having a cuppa can help you beat stress too. Many herbal teas are known to have stress-relieving properties including:




Lemon balm
