Stress has become the source of many illnesses and ailments: high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, mental health issues, insomnia, weight loss or gain, some cancers, digestive problems and many more…
Managing your stress level is probably a very important way to prevent those diseases. It is actually very difficult to decrease stress levels in our busy lives today. Better managing stress seems the way to go.
Here are some simple tips to help you manage your daily stress (so you don’t look like the woman in the picture):
Know how to identify stress symptoms in your body on a daily basis (these may include stomach cramps, headaches, palpitations, cold sweat, numbness in extremities…)
Evaluate your stress level on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the maximum level of stress you are able to take). You must try to keep your stress level between 4 and 7
Here are some easy solutions:
3 or 4 deep abdominal breaths several times a day
Isometrics muscle contractions
Relaxing music, nature/water sounds or a water fountain
Yoga or meditation sessions
Walking with deep breathing
If you are experiencing a very difficult situation that is out of your control, do not hesitate to ask for help or support from a friend, family member or health professional. It is not a sign of weakness! It is a sign of intelligence.
