Tips for Dealing With Stress When Dealing With the Unknown

 I don't get to post here on Galionite as often as I would like, and when I found myself with a bit of extra time this morning, I thought I would pop in with an update. 

Walking to relieve stress

Since coronavirus kind of makes it feel like life is on hold, and the whole year of 2020 has pretty much been one disaster after another, dealing with stress when dealing with the unknown is the first thing that came to mind as a topic to cover. 

3 Doctor Approved Tips for Dealing With Stress

First I want to share some tips stress relief from Web MD - but with some ideas of my own on how to take of advantage of them here in Galion.

1. Exercise for Stress Relief

One of the great things about small town life in a city like Galion is you can choose from a variety of active things to do. (I guess they're mostly walking-based since I haven't checked in to see if the Community Center is open yet.) 

Good sidewalks in most areas make it easy to walk or jog around town. The parks offer plenty of room to move around in the fresh air. There are also the reservoirs to explore and, of course, the new bike trail.

2. Practice Deep Breathing for Less Stress

Taking a few deep breaths can make you feel calmer, it can also help you reset your thoughts. When you're dealing with uncertainty and don't know what to do, it can help to step away and inhale deeply. Try thinking about something other than whatever stresses you out, and come back to it when you're feeling more at ease.

The parks are a great place to try this if you can get away. if you can't get out, this can be easy as slipping off to the bathroom or even hiding in a dark closet for a few minutes. 

3. Ease Stress by Enjoying a Favorite Hobby

Immersing yourself in a hobby is a pleasant way to escape stress for a bit, and there are places in Galion where you can pick up some hobby and craft supplies. For example, if you enjoy crafting, Dollar Tree crafts are hugely popular and can be a blast to make. 

I've also found supplies for different hobbies at the Goodwill store, though that's a toss up because they have different things every time, and at Drug Mart. 

Gardening for Stress Relief

Gardening is a comforting way to unwind and enjoy a break from the stress of dealing with the unknown. When you relieve stress by gardening, it's also a way to practice earthing, or grounding which can help with a number of ailments, according to some experts.

"According to numerous experts, including some who prepared a report on earthing for the NCBI website, contact with the earth can help with a variety of ailments, including chronic inflammation, wounds that heal slowly, and autoimmune disorders."                                                                                                                                                                     - Quote from Intrinsic Vicissitude
