How to Relieve Stress and Anxiety Naturally? – My Story

Woman Relieves StressDo you want to know how to relieve stress and anxiety naturally? Me too.

It is so strange… I talk about these themes, but sometimes I still struggle with stress, and anxiety is one of my oldest friends who comes for a visit.

Today I felt so stressed and full of anxiety, and I suddenly didn’t know what to do. I was worried and frozen in place.

I was stressed about everything and everyone: my life, my family, my relationships, my financial situation and my business. It seemed that my life was falling apart, and I wasn’t sure what made me feel that way in the first place. I know that sometimes you feel that way too.

Feeling angry and stressed

All I wanted is to stop these feelings and emotions that overwhelmed me all of a sudden.

It made me second guessing myself. Why do I even started to write a blog about stress relief if I am still struggling with it from time to time?

Can I succeed in my online business? Can I change my life? Could I manifest my big dreams that may bring happiness to people’s lives? Can I help you?

In these kinds of times, we sometimes understand what is the most important to us. It helps us to see more clearly. It happened to me too.

Computer and Work

Now I can clearly see why I am here talking to you and writing these posts. Today was a reminder, what I need to do to help myself and hopefully to all of you, my dear readers.

We can relieve stress and anxiety together holding each other hands. We need each other.

A great friend today reminded me that I am not alone. We are in this together: you, me, your neighbor, your friends and loved ones, even your pets. We are here to help each other to be the best selves who are free of stress, worry, and anxiety.

So how can we do that?

How to Relieve Stress and Anxiety Naturally?

Do you know what I did today to stop these feelings of stress and anxiety? What can you do?

1. Talk to Yourself

Yes, yes… I talked to myself, and it may seem strange to you. But wait for a minute and listen what I want to say! Please?

Sometimes I just talk to myself. You can call your higher self, your best self, even your angel.

It doesn’t matter how you call it. It only matters that you acknowledge you have the power to change how you feel and understand yourself better in the process.

Talking to yourself can help you see solutions to your problems, your stress.

What is your story

2. Talk to Somebody

If you are feeling stressed and don’t know what is wrong with you, you should talk to somebody. Usually, my first choice is my mom or a friend who understands what I am going through.

This time I talked to my mom who motivated me and reminded me of my dreams. I wrote to my friend who encouraged me to keep doing what I am doing, to be myself, relax and rest a little. Yes, maybe I wanted to do too much, and when I couldn’t, I was getting worried.

Friendship can ease your stress

You have amazing people around you who will keep reminding you how beautiful, courageous and special you are. Spend time with them and talk about your stress, worries, and anxiety. You will see how slowly everything is getting better.

3. Going for a Walk

When I feel anxiety, stress, and worry, I go for a walk. Walking for stress relief can make all the difference, and you will feel refreshed and relaxed after a walk in the park or forest.

Walking helps me to see another perspective, take my life’s situation easier and relax my mind.

I would not lie to you – this time walking didn’t help me. I needed something else.

4. Meditation

What about meditation?

I think meditation is one of the best ways to relieve both stress and anxiety. In fact, it helped me to heal myself from the rash that anxiety caused in the past.

I was sure it will help me this time with my stress and anxiety. Why not? Right?

This time meditation made me feel a little bit better, but there still was a tension that impacted my well-being.




Remember, meditation isn’t some magical tool which can bring you peace in an instant moment. Sometimes it needs time to work, especially if you don’t have any experience, but it will help you in the long run.

Try guided meditation! Combine walking in nature and meditation.

5. Music

If you put some soothing music that can help you relax and forget about your worries, you could relieve stress much quicker than you think.

You can always find music that helps you become more motivated and inspired and in that way relieve stress and anxiety.

Today I listened to relaxing meditative music that made me feel better.

      Why not? We all are in this together. We all struggle with stress and anxiety from time to time.
      I enjoyed writing it, and I think writing helped me to let go of remaining anxious feelings that I still felt it at that time. Sometimes writing is like a therapy.
      Thank you again for the comment!

    This is really cool and NEEDED. With so much chaos that is going on in the world it is super easy to get caught up in it which makes you stressful and negative.
    I feel into the trap of thinking and feeling that way and it really had a bad effect on myself and the people around me. So I just knew I had to make the change.
    I still get stressed out from time to time so i am always looking for ways and methods to relieve it. It’s definitely so techniques that i read about in this article that I haven’t put to use yet. Thanks, I am going to share this on Facebook.

      Thank you for your comment, Garrett! It’s a great feeling to know that you liked it. 🙂 

      Sadly, there are too many things that can make us stressful, anxious and negative. We all know that negative thoughts impact our well-being, so it’s important to learn how to let go of them. I know what you meant, because I experience this myself.

      Yes, me too. I always looking for methods to relieve stress and anxiety. Really? Great to hear it!

      Best wishes!

  3. Linda,
    As always, I find your articles are spot on and full of good info and advice. My first choice to help me get back to the center (my word for being balenced) is music. I use a varity of different types and styles to keep some varity and to be able to let the stress float away. Walking is my next choice and you are righr when you say a park or the forest. Have you ever tried walking in a city, allowing the mind to just take it all in? No thoughts, no worries.

      Hi, Sanders!
      It’s so good that you returned here and read another article of mine. Thank you for that!
      Thanks yo for your compliment. It’s so great to read your words, and it made me feel better. I am glad you liked my post.
      Music is a great way to let go of stress and worries, but somehow it’s not my first choice. I will check your blog to get to know more about the power of music and how it can relieve
      stress.
      In fact, yes I tried. The thing is that I often go for walk in my city, but there are a lot of trees that make me feel better. I usually focus on natural elements, but sometimes I look at the people, cars, situations and allow my mind to just take it all in like you said. It is like being in the present moment without judgment, worries or thoughts.
      Thanks for your great comment, Sanders!

    Anxiety and stress are one of the biggest issues that every human being go through in their life time. They should understand that it is not something you can fix by pill, it is more to fix from inside. This article proves my points. It is so easy to follow when you share your own story. I can relate to that. Thank you so much for this article. I’m definitely going to try these tips next time when I feel stressed out or feeling anxiety.

    • Linda Mo

      I agree, Sujandar. I was always struggling with both, of course, now it’s better, but still, sometimes anxiety comes back to haunt me again. I believe we all experience stress almost daily, so we need to know and understand how to reduce stress, anxiety and relax.

      Thank you!  It was great to read that you will use my tips. 

      Thank you for your comment! Have a great day!

    Stress and anxiety. I know this all too well. After giving birth it seems like my anxiety has been on 1000! I usually try to talk to myself and be positive but sometimes that’s hard. I agree with you that sometimes you just need to talk to someone. But what if that someone thinks you’re overreacting? Or basically tells you to get over it? These days I listen to a lot more worship music and read my Bible. That helps a lot.

    • I have suffered from anxiety as long as I remember myself. Now it’s better because somehow I found ways to reduce stress and anxiety naturally and relatively easily. Still, sometimes I struggle again, and it seems like a battle with myself. It’s so great that there are so amazing ways to relieve anxiety naturally and say goodbye to stress and relax.

      We all need to understand how important is relaxation.

      I agree. People sometimes don’t understand, what we are going through, and it’s sad that they couldn’t at least listen to what others are feeling. It is great that something is helping you – music and reading the Bible. 

      Have a great day, Tekyia! Find other great ways to reduce your anxiety and stress.

    Thanks alot much appreciated

    • Linda Mo

      Hi, Seun! Thank you! 

      It’s good to meet another person who feels so similar to me. Of course, it’s sad that we struggle with anxiety and stress, but we are not alone. I am sure there are more people out there who feel the same way.

      There are many ways to reduce stress and anxiety naturally, but not everything works for everyone. Each of us can find ways that are unique for us to relieve stress and anxiety. 

      It’s great to talk to people who understand us, and I think you need to talk more with your friends and people you love. When you feel light and happy, stress and anxiety can’t reach you. I believe you found what makes you less stressed and anxious. 

      If you need someone to talk to, you can write to me too. I would be honored.

      Thank you for your comment! Thanks for being you! 🙂

    I have had my fair share of stress moments, in fact; I cannot remember a whole month that I was ever stress-free. Thank you for your tips on how to control stress naturally. Having gone through your post, turns that I have been talking to myself in stressful situations, only that I did not realize it. I have been calling it ‘self-reassuring’ in times of stress, but now I know better. I have also been talking to my wife during stressful situations.However, meditation, going for a walk or listening to music has not been on my list of things to do in stressful situations. Now I have got the cheat sheet thanks to you Linda.Best regards

    • Linda Mo

      Hi, Victor!

      Thank you!

    Thanks for your post on how to relieve stress and anxiety naturally! I can boldly say this post is specifically written for me because I’ve been suffering from anxiety and stress over the years and the root cause of this has been my poor financial status.
