I discovered that there are some key habits that, for me, act as great rituals to allow me to be lighter, without stress. These are simple things, but they help to balance my emotional and make me lighter, especially on those days when I’m not feeling 100%.

That way, even if the person faces daily challenges, he will do it in an optimistic and relaxed way. That is, you will be able to see even a positive part of the stress, as it will make you overcome the difficulties. You will become a more positive and optimistic woman.
Tips for a lighter life
Some simple tips that can help you take life less stressfully and analyze problems from another perspective. Try to bring some of them into your daily life and you will see how you will have a lighter life.
Practice outdoor sports
In addition to being a super healthy habit, playing sports in a wooded park or in contact with nature is a way to renew your energy and relieve stress. In addition, physical activity also helps to make the body and mind more active and ready for everyday life.
Have a hobby
Sing, play a musical instrument, take pictures. Find enjoyable activities that make you happy. This is great advice to relax and forget about your problems for a while.
Live new adventures
If you don’t have a hobby, new experiences and different activities are the best way to find a hobby . A new adventure is always a good choice, even for those who already have an activity for their free moments.
Resting after lunch
Much less radical, this advice is to give new vigor after a full morning of work. Relaxing in a hammock or even taking a short nap can rest your mind and increase your afternoon’s productivity. This advice also applies to short breaks during working hours, such as coffee to distract your head a little.
Take a few minutes to meditate
In the day-to-day routine, it is common to spend an entire day without “stopping to breathe”. With technology then, there is not a single minute of rest without looking at messages or social networks on the cell phone.
I will propose a challenge: take minutes of the day to be quiet and without interference from television or a smartphone . Do a meditation. A tip to perform this activity is to pay attention to your breath, consciously. Exercise helps to maintain attention and concentration, even during routine.
See life positively
People who smile frequently are happier and less stressed. Everyone has problems and focusing on the negative side only helps to bring more stress and headache. Have you ever heard of the glass half full of water? Negative people will say that the glass is half empty, optimistic people will say that it is half full. Become part of this second group. They prefer to pay more attention to the little good things that happen every day.
Allow yourself to have small pleasures
Find friends to chat or have a beer at the end of the day, have an ice cream, prepare a dinner for the family, watch a movie or be close to the people you love. These are just a few examples of simple everyday situations, but they can bring more happiness and lightness into your life!
Listen to advice
Learn to accept advice as well as constructive criticism, as they will help you to grow as a person and professional. It is important to listen and learn to accept when we are wrong.
Learn not to react or judge
Having a habit of taking things personally means that you assume that someone is attacking you in a way, when in reality it may be that they are just playing or having a bad day. Learn to control your emotions. Don’t jump to conclusions. Other people also make mistakes, learn to be patient.
Allow yourself to be frustrated
Wishes can sometimes not be fulfilled, so a good dose of patience, trial and error is essential to move forward.
Change the focus
Demotivation has to do with the perception that desires are unattainable. One of the changes we must make is to start by defining goals, desires, objectives, according to the real possibilities.
People who use humor to deal with stress have a better immune system, reduced risk of heart attack and stroke, experience less pain during dental treatments and live longer. Laughter should be like a daily vitamin. Just remembering the funny moments can improve your relationship. Humor can bring many benefits to your life.
Touch can reduce stress, improve your job performance and help you to be persuasive. Hugs make you happier. Sex can help prevent heart attacks, in addition to improving your immune system and making you much more productive and creative.
Make an effort
Remember that you should value everything you do as much as possible. Having a lighter and happier life is for the brave. This requires effort and willpower. However, the essential thing is to understand that having a lighter life is not impossible, it is a constant work that helps us become the people we want and, most importantly, bring a little joy to our life and to the world.
