5 simple mindfulness exercises against stress

Stress is the No. 1 widespread disease and has serious effects on the body and psyche. I will tell you the top 5 causes of stress and show you 5 simple mindfulness exercises on how to have less stress in your life.

The top 5 stress causes in Germany are:

  • Requirements at work, at school or at university (47 percent).
  • Almost on par with the high demands on oneself (46 percent).
  • Concern for sick loved ones has become increasingly important in times of Corona. This burdens a third of those surveyed (31 percent).
  • Conflicts in private life (26 percent).
  • Constant availability via mobile phone and social media (25 percent).

The term “stress” describes a natural and evolutionary human reaction to threatening situations. In order to escape from a dangerous situation, the human body releases stress hormones, which increase physical performance in the short term in order to be able to react to dangers to one's life by fighting or fleeing. In modern everyday life, however, fight and flight are hardly acceptable forms of behavior. People today often lack an outlet for releasing tension. The result is a permanent state of tension that causes illness over the long term. It is precisely this tension that you come out of with the help of mindfulness and mine

Mindfulness Exercises:

  1. When you wake up, be thankful for at least 5 things in your life.
  2. Open your window in the morning and take a deep breath and just focus on your breathing.
