Did you lose a loved one? Did your job make cuts and you were the first to go (with a family on the way)? Are you having a hard time dealing with paying your on-going debt? Or are you dealing with a number of challenges that life throws your way you believe is to difficult to face yourself - resulting in stress? If you answer yes to any of the questions above, odds are your physically, emotionally and spiritually drained.
This could lead to serious health problems you don't want to deal with like terminal illnesses.
So, one proven way to get rid of stress in your life is to take up a hobby.
It can be any hobby, so long as it stimulates your mind and gets you involved.
Maybe you've always wanted to learn how to speak fluent Spanish, beat those crossword puzzles, or learn magic.
Perhaps you've had a special talent in dance - consider taking a few classes at your local ballroom dancing club.
All these hobbies (some which can be used to turn into a career) occupy your mind and keeps you from thinking of whatever stressful problems you have going on right now.
Also, it FORCES you step outside your comfort zone, and focus on what really matters to you in your life.
Other hobbies you could take part in is creating a garden, writing poetry, or even traveling more often.
Are you a dare-devil? Maybe what you need is a shot of adrenaline to help you focus on having a good time and enjoying your life.
Finally, one of my favorite ways to cure stress is to PLAY more.
It sounds counter-intuitive to what we were taught growing up into adulthood that "playing is for kids", but I found that play should be universal to all walks of life - regardless of age.
As a kid, you played "make believe" with your toy Barbie doll or army solder, and as an adult you can go swimming with a few friends, learn tennis, or go sky-diving (all a form of adult play) In the end, knowing how to cure stress in your life is a problem you no longer have to deal with if your willing to step up to the plate and take action on changing the course of your life.
There's no written rule you have to be miserable in your relationship or at your job.
Start the business you've always wanted, or embark on a career that'll bring meaning to your life.
Of course, getting rid of stress isn't always quite that easy, that's why there are coaches and programs available to show you how to cure your stress in case you get "stuck" and need the extra push.
