3 Ways to Reduce Stress

Having a stressful day? Don’t let it get the best of you! There are ways that you can work to mitigate your stress. Here’s three things we recommend trying when you get stressed.

1. Meditation
It’s not just for yogis and celebrities anymore. Meditation is becoming a popular way to deal with stress. It allows you a few minutes to clear your head and refocus your energies, and there’s increasingly evidence of physical benefits as well. If you’re trying to de-stress, this is a great way to start.

If you’ve never meditated before, don’t worry. Despite what you may have seen on tv, meditation isn’t all about the lotus position and mantras. If that works for you, great! But for those looking for an easy way to begin, try mindfulness meditation. The simple exercise of paying attention to your breathing and gently refocusing your thoughts has been shown to have great benefits. There are lots of websites and apps that can guide you through the process. Start by trying to meditate for 10 minutes or so, and feel your stress evaporate.

2. Exercise
The benefits of exercise for stress have been well-documented. Exercise can improve your physical health, your mental clarity, and your emotional well-being. You don’t need to be a gym rat to get those benefits, either. Getting 20 minutes of quality exercise several times a week can make a difference (but you might find you like it so much you want to do more).

Starting a new exercise regimen can seem intimidating sometimes. You want to have the right spandex shorts, a trendy fitness monitor, and a gym membership. Relax! There’s not one right way to exercise. In fact, you’ve got a lot of options available to you. Don’t force yourself onto an elliptical machine if you’d rather be trail running. Jump rope, play tennis, or go mountain biking — just get some exercise, and let go of that stress!

3. Unimate
Unimate is a three-in-one product, working to support your mood, your energy, and your health. We’ve concentrated and purified yerba mate to make an entirely new, more effective drink. Unimate contains chlorogenic acid and theobromine, shown to help enhance your mood and give you sustained energy. It’s a perfect stress-buster.

Plus, what’s more calming than slowly sipping a warm (or cold, if you prefer) drink and relaxing for a few minutes? It’s a convenient way to unwind, no matter where you are. You’ll want to make Unimate a part of your ritual to de-stress.
