During the holiday season and challenging times, many people are under some sort of stress. Everyone’s stress level is different. One of the ways to good health is how well you manage your stress. If not taken care of, stress can stack up and cause chronic mental and physical health problems. There are a few ways to keep your stress under control to keep you happy and healthy.
- Take a break: This can sound like the hardest thing when work, kids, and many other demanding things. However, the stress fades away when you permit yourself to take a break. You can always come back to it.
- Smile and laugh: Forcing yourself to smile can be challenging in moments of high stress, but it may help relieve some inner tension.
- Meditate: If taking a break is not an option, set aside time and form a meditation routine at the end of the day. This can help you relax and refocus, allowing you to tune down.
- Exercise: The endorphins you get from exercising can last for several hours, relieving you of stress while making you feel good.
- Resources: Beyond self‐help, you need resources in your life to help relieve stress. Look for online social groups or support, or connect with a friend.
If you can follow these few simple tips daily, you’ll see your stress level reduce. You’ll also feel better and healthier overall.
