20 Tips Dealing with Stress

By Devina Collier, Biblical Naturopath, Iridologist, Sclerolgist, CNC, CNHP.

  1. Break tasks into smaller activities. Delegate what you can.
  2. Create a Scripture Journal. Label tabs with life’s challenges (i.e. tab #1 Health, #2 Finances, #3 Perfectionism, #4 Stress, #5 Grief). Then write 10-20 scriptures related to each category. Use google for scripture search. You can also use the journal to journal stress.
  3. Make time for yourself, even if it’s 10 – 30 minutes per day. Everybody should wait until you have had your time to refresh. Let them know it’s foe your health needs.
  4. Repeat the name of Jesus loudly until the stress has less effects on your mind and mood.
  5. If the stress lingers around, tell Jesus to break the effects of that stress from your body.
  6. To release tension from your nerves, do 5 slow, deep breathes.
  7. To get nerves settling down easier, listen to uplifting, calming, relaxing music.
  8. Temporarily change your scenery – get direct sunshine on the face 15 minutes per day. Walk outside, listen to birds interacting and singing. Visit a pet store, find a good magazine to read at the library or join an activity at the library such as scrap booking or vision boarding. Select fun magazines and travel magazines.
  9. Say no to things and people that slow you down.
  10. Start closing gaps that hold you back in life, such as things soaking up your time, especially when it can be eliminated or temporarily placed on hold. This is a good time to redo your schedule.
  11. Laugh and smile on purpose 20 times a day. Laughter is good medicine. Read Proverbs 17:22. (NKJV) A merry heart does good, like medicine,
    But a broken spirit dries the bones.
  12. Get 6-8 hours of sleep per day.
  13. Make time for a sweaty activity and fun or games. Exercise w/a buddy.
  14. Eat a meal with a friend. Meet at a café shop for lunch. Go to the movies on the weekend.
  15. Get a massage or your hair done.
  16. Reduce stimulant drinks.
  17. Avoid procrastination so the stress of it does not over shadow you.
  18. Avoid internalizing stress. Talk to somebody.
  19. Choose healthy foods to keep your energy levels up.
  20. Choose good drinking water for hydration.
