Inner peace is easy to cultivate once you’ve learned a few simple hacks. After all, no one has time for stress, right? The more relaxed you are when approaching the day ahead of you, the more gratifying and productive it is. You’ll have a different perspective which helps you achieve greater success.

The following list of suggestions provide you with easy ways to positively deal with stress. Some are designed to help the body relax while others use the mind to move past whatever is bothering you, so you can focus on the good things you have in your life. Developing a sense of gratitude is key because it provides perspective when your mind is telling you that things are going terribly wrong.

Here are some hacks to get you started on finding your Zen:

  • Nourish Yourself First. Before you start on all your activities for the day, ask yourself- have I given myself enough fuel to do this? Taking care of ourselves can take as little as 30 seconds. Drop a couple scoops of plant-based Proteini into some delicious almond milk and be on your way! Else if you are ever in danger of over-fueling, try our Pineapple Chia Cleanse, which was specifically created to provide maximum refreshment while keep your cravings under control!
  • Give yourself a massage. When short on space, a massage can be as simple as rubbing your ears. It’s an overlooked part of the body that responds remarkably well. For a quick boost of life, try tugging on each ear gently. If you want a natural way to feel energized without consuming caffeine, try this hack and see how well it works for you.
  • Don’t underestimate the power of routine. Keeping the same schedule and going to the same place each day sends signals to the brain that puts it at ease. Routines help reinforce similar thought patterns which makes it possible for you to relax. You have a general idea of what you’ll be doing and why you’ll be doing it.

  • Take a ten-minute break to stretch and clear your mind. It’s easier to get things done when you give yourself regular breaks. It allows you to walk off stress, get a drink of water, and return to a project or task with greater clarity. It’s very easy to get up in the trap of trying to do more in less time. You’ll burn out quickly if you don’t take some time out of the day for self-care. Listen to your body and when it starts to feel stiff or tense, get up and move even if it is only for a minute or two.
