We live in a pretty hectic world. There’s always something going on around us and whether or not you know it, these distractions can have an impact on your life. And that impact is often loads of stress. So, how do you destress when things get too much? Write! That’s right because there is something about writing that can slow down your mind and focus on one thing. Writing is a great way to get down your feelings when something is bothering you and can help you to de-stress!
While writing is good therapy it’s also helpful when you have a blog you are working on. Sure, it’s nice to be able to make money with your blog but did you know that blogging consistently can give you many benefits that go beyond just having something to do? Writing helps to organize thoughts and can help you to direct your creative energy somewhere other than to the many distractions we face. How to de-stress? Get busy writing!
Writing is one way to de-stress but so is doing other things and you can do them for free! Yep, I said it. Free. How about walking? Walking is another way to fight stress even if it’s a simple 30 minute walk up the street. Many people walk as a way of taking off the edge from a hard day’s work or from being too sedentary. It’s free and it has many benefits.
You may be wondering why you are reading a blog about de-stressing on a blogging tips website. Well, being a blogger I have noticed that it can be a lonely and non-active journey so I figured I would write about ways to curb this in a blog. Personally I found that walking or going out in nature doing activities like fishing can help to ground myself. The result is I can come back to my blog and write more effectively and with more enthusiasm. Try walking or visiting a museum to distract from the everyday blogging that can consume your life.
It pretty much goes without saying that taking breaks is important no matter what you do daily. And blogging breaks is no different. You need them or your content will suffer. Blogging should be fun and you should only do it when you feel up to it, not pressured and not with some deadline you set for yourself. While many bloggers tie themselves down to “Having to make that sale” I encourage you to put that thought out of your head and try to just blog when you feel up to it, not when you feel you have to. The time spent blogging will be much more enjoyable!
