Do you remember when you were a kid, you would laugh at anything and everything? Well, when you grow up, that probably is not true and you actually try to censor yourself. Well, don’t! It only causes more stress and honestly, a laugh once in a while can do nothing but help you! Personally, I laugh all of the time and while I might not be stress-free I know that my stress levels are definitely lower when I just laugh it off!
Now of course, there are times to laugh and times that you shouldn’t, but you, as an adult should be able to judge when it is okay to laugh. Just remember, don’t censor yourself anymore, let it all loose and you will definitely see a difference in not only your stress-levels but also your attitude overall!
Friends are definitely a great source to get you to laugh. Not only do your friends know you better than anyone in most causes but they know what will cause you to laugh and honestly, isn’t it better to laugh with friends versus by yourself?

We all know it is hard right now, with the way that the economy is right now and nothing on the news is good news and well, there are a few things in your personal life that can probably stress you out as well. Communication is honestly one of the best forms of stress relieving. Having a simple talk with one of your closest friends or family members can honestly work wonders!
Now we all know those excuses that people have for not talking to one another about their problems, but those are just excuses.

However, if you do not feel comfortable talking to someone, that’s okay! Sometimes writing it all down in your journal is a great release and will definitely help you get the word out there that there are stresses in your life! So go ahead, start yourself a journal and start recording all of your thoughts down. Heck, they even have online journals now if you feel more comfortable typing it all up!
