How to Manage Long-Term Stress
- Fresh air and exercise: get out for 15 minutes of sunlight and fresh air. Even better if you can take a walk in the woods. Recent studies have shown that nature has healing and calming impacts on your mental wellness and health.
- Take a breathe: give yourself time and space to breathe deeply. Just five minutes a day of sitting and breathing can help you feel more calm. There is a lot of buzz these days about the healthful impacts of meditation and how it can help alleviate stress.
- Good food: take a look at what you’re eating and try to get in your fruits and vegetables. We don’t expect you to give up your favorite treats but we do want you to squeeze in an extra apple or some carrots. Along with these healthful foods, learn about natural supplements that can help support your immune system. These natural supplements, such as AHCC can help keep you protected from the negative impacts of long-term stress. This combination of healthful food and natural supplements is particularly important if you have an underlying health condition that could be worsened by heightened stress levels.
- Give yourself some kudos: take a step back and look at all you’ve accomplished. Too often we only focus on the things we haven’t done and have failed to achieve. We neglect to acknowledge all our tremendous accomplishments. Never take yourself and what you’ve achieved for granted.
- Eliminate stressors: okay, tax season – it comes every year, no point in worrying about it – you got through it last year, you’ll get through it this year. Yes, the years ahead are unpredictable with a new government, but this is really out of your control – all you can do is focus on living your best life. Yes, you’ve got some bills from the holidays – we all do, they don’t have to be paid immediately. As for your 2017 resolutions – are they really worth the stress that they’re causing you? Look long and hard at these resolutions and think about what is most important to you.
