Many scientists now know how important reducing your stress can be for cognitive health and mental performance. Stress levels might make you feel more alive and awake (i.e: adrenaline), but that doesn’t mean that you can perform mentally as you need today.

Most people need to have some type of relaxation method that helps them to improve the quality of sleep and rest that they get. In the following brief article, we will focus on a few specific stress reduction techniques that you can use in your day to day life.

  1. Spa treatment – this might be cost prohibitive to some people, but spas are a great way to improve your feelings of relaxation and reduce stress. Most people who are using spas do not realize how effective they can be if they just have the right mindset about things. Even though it can be cost prohibitive there are home spa options that you can choose from as well.
  2. Meditation retreat – even though many high performers already do some type of meditation every day, a full scale retreat is a completely different story. You’ll notice that a wide variety of people who are using meditative practices do not find that can get the full effect. You might want to try a Vipassana retreat, which is a 10 day session to learn this style of meditation and spend the time practicing.
  3. Nootropics – of course, anyone who wants to reduce stress can look for nootropic products. Some nootropic drink mixes have products in them that can help with reducing your feelings of stress and helping you with anxiety.

No matter what you decide to do, try to find a solution to your stress problem as soon as you can. Most people let it go decades and slowly it kills them as a result. Making sure that you can remove your stress will help you to live happier now and also longer as well.
