If you are feeling like you are overwhelmed and need a fast way of calming down from stress, don’t worry because there are some things you can do and they aren’t that hard.

If you have chronic stress, there are some practices you can use when managing stress over the long term.

When you have a lot of stress, you feel overwhelmed, and most of the time it sneaks up on you. When you need to relax your body and mind, use the following easy strategies and you will notice you are calming down. It makes it easy for you to deal with the situation you are facing.


Taking a short walk

Exercise is a great way of relieving stress because it releases endorphins and blow-off steam. You don’t have to do it for long, just five or five minutes of walking is enough to give you the benefits. You can go outside and take a walk because it is even better for your body and mind.

You can have social support during the walk by bringing a good friend along. Walking alone is also good because you have time to think, reframe, then come back to deal with the situation with renewed optimism. You can also try music that energizes or soothes you.

You are going to get the benefits of exercise when you take a walk – both the long-term and short-term benefits – and as a bonus, it is going to get out of the situation temporarily. You are going to get a new perspective in the process and you will return with a different frame of mind.


Breathing deeply

If it is not possible to leave where you are, then use breathing exercises to feel better right away. When you get more oxygen into your body and release physical tension it helps. Breathing is going to do that. The good thing is you can do this anywhere at any time, even if the situation is not letting up.

If you want to make deep breathing even more soothing, then close your eyes and press your palms like when people are praying.


Visualizing relief

If you can get a few minutes of peace, guided imagery and visualization are something you need to try. It can help you get peace of mind. You can easily do them and you will relax physically and mentally. If you keep practicing, it is going to be easier to access your “happy place” and feel calmer.


Reframing your situation

There are times when people intensify their experience of stressful situations by how they look at them. If you manage to look at the situation differently, then it is easier to look at it from a different perspective – especially one that is going to result in less stress.

Emotional and mental stress can be caused by type A traits, pessimism, and self-sabotaging thoughts. You should try changing how you look at things. It is going to really help you when you are feeling stressed.


Relax your muscles

PMR or progressive muscle relaxation is a great technique that involves tensing and releasing all your muscle groups, which leaves you feeling more relaxed. Everyone can do this, and with enough practice, you can find it easier to release any tension in a body in just a few seconds. This will make you feel calmer and ready to handle any situation you are facing.


Sniff something soothing

Aromatherapy has become an easy tool people use when they want to calm down. There are many studies that have been done showing that aromatherapy has many benefits. There is a wide range, with a good example being lavender. It has been associated with decreased depression, anxiety, stress, and fatigue in people with cardiovascular diseases. Light up a diffuser or candle, enjoy the aroma, and see how calm you start to get.

Writing it down.

Journaling is another tool to use if you have a few minutes. Journal has been shown to work when it comes to reducing psychological distress. Take the time to note down what is causing your stress at the moment and put your emotions on the page.


Drinking some water

Dehydration is going to make you feel thirsty, tired, and dizzy. If you are feeling overwhelmed, get a glass of water. You can brew yourself a stress-relieving cup of tea because it will allow you to take a step away from what is causing your stress.


Chew gum

Do you have gum nearby? Chewing gum can help in reducing stress. If you have not given this a try, then consider keeping a stash of your favorite flavor and chewing it any time you are feeling stressed. Try it and see if it works for you.

Prolific Award-Winning Artist Sarantos Releases Emotional EDM Single

Innovative singer-songwriter Sarantos has released his latest single called ‘I Wish’ to benefit Make A
Wish Foundation.

Released on August 2nd, 2022, the new EDM/Pop single by Sarantos combines genres to offer a unique musical experience. Titled ‘I Wish’, the song explores the human need to have more things in life, as the artist also shares his personal struggle with the obsession of always wanting more. Always writing his own lyrics, Sarantos aims to humanize all the emotions and feelings that society thinks are bad, due to which people keep those feelings hidden deep inside. By using his music as a conduit for this emotional discourse, Sarantos sets himself apart in the EDM and Pop music scene.

The Official music video for ‘I Wish’ will be released on August 9th, 2022. The music video features stunning visuals of vast landscapes where a lost man can be seen walking in search of something. According to Sarantos, “This visual signifies the meaning of the song. The man walking symbolizes myself and all the other people, who are always in search of more happiness in a world that seems to be riddled with neverending problems. The man travels to every corner of the globe; from Chicago to Alcatraz, Normandy, Iceland, Switzerland, and India to Australia looking for answers. The dreaminess of the footage mirrors the fluctuation between hope and despair as the suspenseful story plays out. The man’s life is far from perfect, but he isn’t ready for it to end…”

The single continues a string of releases by Sarantos that benefit charity. ‘I Wish’ will benefit Make A Wish Foundation. Sarantos says, “A wish experience can be a game-changer for a child with a critical illness. I think this belief guides that organization in everything they do.

How To Keep Your Car’s Interior Spotlessly Clean

Car’s Interior Spotlessly Clean

Most of us have a habit of taking our cars/vehicles to the carwash whenever it seems/feels dirty. Although the carwash might be efficient in cleaning your car’s exterior, it certainly doesn’t with your interior.   You can, however, take up the responsibility to keep your car clean by cleaning it every once in a while. Most people have a weekly cleaning routine for their homes and even their car’s exterior; why not do the same for the interior.

Under normal circumstances, your car is more likely to get dirty faster than your home. Aside from snacking and food particles falling all over the car, your dirty shoes will always soil the carpet and other parts under them. While vacuuming may help remove most of the dirt, it certainly doesn’t deep clean the carpets and seat undersides. The only way to keep it clean is to take your time to clean it as often as possible.

According to experts, you should clean your car at least once every month. Christian Newman, the owner of C&J Automotive Detailing, notes that those who have a habit of snacking while driving and dogs/pets in the car should clean the car every other week. There’s thus a good chance you aren’t cleaning your car enough. Below are a few simple tips and steps from Mr Car Mats to keeping your car clean and hygienic.


  1. Vacuum Everywhere

Although most of us will only vacuum the carpets, doing so pushes dirt and dust onto other parts, such as the seats, dashboard, and compartments. One way to prevent this is to vacuum every inch of the car’s interior. Start with the door panels, dashboard, and console, then finish with the carpets. Be sure to use a strong enough vacuum cleaner for the best results.


  1. Open And Clean the Door Area

The door jamb is one of the most neglected areas in a car. While this may be the first part you will set your eyes on before getting in or out of the car, most people hardly vacuum or clean it. This could be because it requires a little more effort and attention. Nonetheless, use a cotton cloth or swab to polish the area mildly to remove any dirt trapped within. Consider oiling it to keep it moist too. Get more done with these tips.


  1. Use Vinyl Cleaner To Clean The Vinyl

The vinyl cleaner will come in handy in removing dirt from dusty or fingerprint-smudged dashboards and door insides. Start by wiping the dust off using a cotton cloth, then a microfiber cloth dabbed in the vinyl cleaner to wipe down any remaining dirt. Be sure to clean every part of the dashboard and the door, especially door pockets. Vacuum and declutter the door pockets first before doing this. Do not use the vinyl cleaner on the steering wheel.


  1. Wash And Wipe Down the Windows

Dirt and dust may collect on your windows too. You should be able to notice the dirt when rolling the windows down. Giving the windows a good clean and then wiping them with a microfiber cloth can help remove any remaining dirt. Be sure to wipe the mirrors and door handles as well.
