De-stress: Part 2

Stress can cause a host of medical issues and general unhappiness.  You need to find ways to manage it.  Yesterday we discussed the first- four stress-reducers, and here are some more:

5.  Breathe- I use this one  a lot.  When I’m stressed and ready to be frustrated, I’ll stop, take a deep breath, close my eyes and release the breath slowly.  I always feel more peaceful after.  I learned a lot about the importance of breathing while studying Pilates.

6.  Don’t binge eat or drink to fill a void-  It really won’t help and it makes you fat.

7.  Schedule down-time-  What’s your passion?  Painting, biking, needlepoint, yoga,  golf?  It may seem selfish to take time for yourself, but it’s the best thing for you and your family.

8.  Turn off your social media mediums and disconnect.   Even if it’s for one hour…

Finding ways to relieve your stress will help your state of mind, and lead to better long-term health.  Take the time to look at your hot-button issues and how you can find some resolve in making them better.
