Managing the Stress in Your Life
If you’re having a hard time managing the stress in your life, you’re not alone. Stress is something that affects virtually everyone at one point or another, but if you have some strategies in your back pocket it can be easier to manage. Back to Top of your health online page
One of the first things you can do is work to reduce your actual stress. That may mean saying no more often or narrowing down your activities as much as possible. Many people experience stress just because they’re over-scheduled.
Once you’ve eliminated as many sources of stress as possible, it’s time to manage what you do have. For example, if you suffer physically with headaches and insomnia, you’ll want to look for a physical way to manage it.
Exercise is one of the best ways to combat the physical effects of stress. It can help you to release tension, helps you to get the benefits of endorphins which elevate your mood, and it can help you to sleep better at night. Exercise also gives you energy to get through the day.
You may also find that it helps to amp up your nutrition. Making sure you have plenty of vitamins and minerals in your diet can be beneficial. Increasing the amount of protein and whole grains in your diet can also be helpful.
While adding something to a busy schedule may seem counterproductive, it can be a good idea to add fun to your calendar. Make time to do fun activities with friends – whatever you enjoy.
You should also spend some time on hobbies you enjoy such as reading, photography, crafts, or cooking.
When you spend time on activities you enjoy, the things you have to do that are less enjoyable don’t seem quite as bad. Social and creative outlets can help to manage stress and give you something to look forward to.
There are also several supplements that can help you to manage stress. Fish oil, for example, is known to help your brain function better.
It actually has an antidepressant effect. The supplement Rhodiola can also help you to fight the fatigue that comes from stress.
Ginseng is a natural supplement that helps you to reduce the effects of stress on your body. While herbal supplements are natural products, it’s a good idea to talk to your healthcare provider before taking them.
Finally, activities such as yoga and meditation can help you to release stress from your mind and body and allow you to have a fuller life. Managing the stress in your life can be difficult, but it’s not impossible.
