Different Stress Relievers, Which Would You Choose?



There are so many different stress relief methods out there on the internet.. I am not sure which product to choose. Therefor I posted this "poll" to see what you all would choose from these different methods.The ones I

found are;

**Self hypnosis products that will guide you into hypnosis to overcome your stress.

**eBooks of people that have overcome stress in their own unique way, and you can buy the eBook that will help you overcome stress the same way they did.

**Devices that will help you control your breathing. These products are the most expensive ones. They will rate your breathing and heart beat so that you can improve it.

**Pills that will relief your stress for a period of time, no subscription needed to order them online.

**Relaxing sounds of nature music cd's that will relax you.

**And Binaural Beat programs, this is a relatively new for of stress relief and other problems. Emotions work on brain frequencies and these binaural beats will bring the brain frequency from stressed to calm and relaxed.

I hope that you will all vote the option that you feel most comfortable with. Thanks!

I do not see why you have to pay for anything to control your breathing! It is just a question of sitting,quietly and consciously slowing and relaxing till your breathing slows through the relaxation and can take a while to perfect but I have never required any sort of product to do this.

hey nightmare,

Thanks for the reply! Yeah I geuss you're right about that breathing exercise. But what do you think about the other product types? What would you go for, or believe the most in?

I was thinking about that binaural beat method myself.. but im not sure though

Certain music is good.The Binaural beat sounds interesting too.

I have never heard of the binaural beats for stress relief, but I think you should definetly try that out and let me know how it works so I can look into it!!! I have tried breathing, meds, books, and so much more.......up for anything that isn't crazy :)

haha when I try it out.. I will certainly let you know how it works! What are your experience with those products you tried? I mean it are a lot of different products, so that would mean a lot of em didn't work.. right?

Does this mean that you wouldn't recommend any of those to anyone?

I'll be honest. Forgive me if I'm wrong, but this thread is starting to sound a bit like a sales promotion.

This subject has made some people very rich. Look in any bookstore or library and you will find rows of books on the subject.

I believe in the simple things. Write a journal, do something not related to nursing. Participate in your community. This could be in a church, community need, or area that you enjoy. Some of my friends do volunteer programs on public radio. Now there is something different than nursing.

Take a walk or ride a bike. Vent on this site. Others might have the same issues.

Bottom line is to find something that gives you pleasure and do it. Make it a part of you life and keep your money.:wink2:
