Feeling overwhelmed, tired, depressed, or anxious? Don’t let unmanaged stress get the best of you! According to the Mayo Clinic, stress can contribute to health problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, and diabetes.
Research continues to suggest that regular exercise benefits both your mind and your body. Take a 30-minute stroll after dinner each night or kick it up a notch with a spin class at your local gym. You will be amazed at how great you feel!
Get a Good Night’s Sleep
We all know that everything shuts down when we don’t sleep well. Stress affects sleep and lack of sleep causes unnecessary stress. Most adults need 7-9 hours of sleep to effectively function each day. You want to be your best, don’t you? Turn off the television and yes…even your cell phone…and get a full night of undisturbed Zzzz’s.
Read a Book
Reading is an effective way to relax and reduce stress. When you read a book, you are taken to another place and time, which gives your mind a needed break from daily stressors. Simply put, reading can be very therapeutic and provides a small dose of “Me” time…something we all need each day.
Relax with a Massage
A delightful way to unwind! Massage releases endorphins, providing you with a calming effect. And that’s not all! Studies have found that massage may also be helpful for:
- Digestive disorders
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Soft tissue strains or injuries
- Sports injuries
- Temporomandibular joint pain
