Stress Management

Stress management

  1. Stop and Breathe
    Deep breathing is a great way to slow down the parasympathetic nervous system.
     
  2. Clear your Head 
    Try journaling, meditate/pray, talk to a friend, take a walk.
     
  3. Do something fun
    (Have an adventure) I swear just being outside in nature on a trail, calms me right down. Seeing a sunset or a waterfall rushing does something for the soul and the nerves.
     
  4. Eliminate Caffeine 
    Replace it with water. Our bodies are made up of around 60 percent of water. So most of us are dehydrated more often than not if you drink a lot of soda, sugary drinks, coffee. Drink a big glass of water and see how you feel.
     
  5. Workout
    Get those endorphins pumping. Keep it light (low impact) if needed but our bodies are meant to move. Pick up some weights, or try a Fitness Blender workout. Some studies show that exercise can elevate a person's mood, reduce anxiety and depression, and boost their self-esteem. Yoga also has great benefits for the mind, body, and soul.
     
  6. Get a Massage                
    Studies show the many benefits of massage from stress relief, anxiety, pain, and muscle tension. Check out http://www.wellnessmoreaccessible.com/ for your local needs.
