How to Beat Stress and Live a Happy Life

Let’s face it. You don’t always wake up at the right side of your bed every morning. There are days when no matter how hard you try to make things work, it just won’t. Don’t worry because you are not the only one. Some people out there also experience unpleasant situations in their everyday lives which give them so much stress. In fact, some of them suffer from stress not only for a day but for the whole week. 

The good news is, you can do something about it. To take your stress away, I recommend that you check the list below.


Read a Good Book

Take a break from everything that is making you feel miserable. You can always grab a good book from your shelf or get a new one from the bookstore and read it. Let the book bring you to different places. Allow it to create a connection between you and its characters. Reading a good novel can shift your mood from a bad one to a good one. I recommend that you choose self-help or inspirational books. Trust me, this way of beating stress works.

Satisfy Your Cravings for Sweet Treats

You deserve a treat after having a long day at work or school. So make sure that you visit your favorite dessert shop and order for your favorite slice of cake, plate of pie or cup of ice cream. Treat yourself to whatever it is that can instantly bring smile to your face. Just remember not to overeat. For a best experience, you can invite your officemate or long-time friend to accompany you. 

Go for Retail Therapy

Shopping is called retail therapy because it is really therapeutic. Cancel your appointments for the weekend and go shopping at your favorite shop. Get all the things that will make you happy. However, it is important to know how to control your shopping indulgence. Do not be a compulsive buyer. If you are a very busy person, then the best thing to do is to shop online. There are many online stores that sell high quality items at affordable prices. You may consider shopping at Zalora Philippines which provides a great collection of fashionable products from different brands. You can always shop for beautiful dresses from Mango, stylish clutch bags from Ezra and great bags at CMG.

Go Out on A Date

Call your parents whom you haven’t seen in weeks. Book a restaurant and invite them to share dinner with you. You can also call your high school friends and organize a mini-reunion party. It’s also a good idea to plan for a romantic but simple date with your partner. Going out on a date with the special persons in your life will remind you that life is beautiful because you have them. These persons can help you beat stress! Just make that call and everything will be okay.

Whatever comes your way, always choose to be happy. Learn how to appreciate every little thing in life. You deserve nothing but the best. Always choose to beat stress. Don’t let it consume you.

  4. I totally agree with your tips, Algene. I'm lucky because the mall is only walking distance so I could unwind and go shopping or malling, then drop by the bookstore. Even if I don't have plans to buy, the mere fact that I diverted my attention to somewhere else and check out my wish list items, already enough for me. But one thing I have to control is the food cravings every time I'm stressed. I'm still trying to control it. :(

  9. I think my ultimate stress reliever will be those quick vacations that I take with my husband. Once a year we try to squeeze in a quick getaway and all our worries we leave behind in Manila.

  12. Yay! All these tips are working for me not all at the same time. But for me the most effective is to talk to people who are close to my heart and tell them about why I'm so stressed.
