FAV QUOTE FRIDAY | MINDFUL LIVING: 4 Things You Can Do To Lighten Up Your Day and Get Instant Stress Relief

This week's Fav Quote Friday post comes with a bonus;
each quote is also a tip for instant stress-busting relief.
Use as needed to lighten the moment and your heart.
Ready? Here we go:

 1. BREATHE
"Breathing in, I calm body and mind. Breathing out, I smile..."
~Thich Nhat Hanh, Being Peace

METHOD: Take slow breaths,

counting each,
inhaling and exhaling deeply,
for a total of 10 breaths. 
Relief is on the way...


2. KISS
 "Keep Calm and Kiss Me."

METHOD: Find your co-worker, your cat or your dog,
your lover, your spouse or your mate, or any friend that you love,
and give them a great big smooch.
It will make you both happier.


 

3. LAUGH
 "After all these years, my favorite thing to do in life 
is to be laughing until the tears well up."
~Robert Downey, Jr.

METHOD: Laugh out loud. Be silly for a few moments. 
Let things go. Smile. Repeat as needed.


4. JUMP
'Don't wait for the perfect time, 
sometimes you just have to dare to jump.'

METHOD: Do 5-25 jumping jacks (high or low impact) 
to de-stress and get your smile back in a minute. 
(Feel free to combine multiple tips at any time,
such as 3 & 4, like Dean and Jerry are doing here)

Use any or all of these stress-busting techniques
any time you need a break.
