12 Biblical Ways to Reduce Stress

This morning we shared Biblical ways to reduce stress since April is Stress Awareness Month. A huge thank you to our source Livingontheedge.org for sharing recommendations to reduce stress. Here are some of the ways we shared this morning…

  • Eliminate Hurry

Running around in flight-or-flight mode is no small thing. Speed and godliness are incompatible; hurry and loving others are simply incompatible.

  • Downsize Expectations

Because our expectations are so high and we’re under pressure, anger bubbles out.

  • Be Merciful

Love your enemies and do good to them. Let people off the hook and don’t worry about vengeance, which is God’s. 

  • Admit mistakes and imperfections

If we mess up, we admit it. No excuses, no blaming others. You’d be amazed at the relief of admitting the truth and acknowledging you’re a part of the human race. 

  • Get right with God 

“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.” (James 4:7-8)

  • Laugh more

Proverbs 17:22 states, ” A cheerful heart is good medicine.”
