These Stress Management Tips Can Help Us Keep Our Cool During Stress Awareness Month

SUGGESTIONS TO HELP find out how we MIGHT better manage our stress.

We understand that life does get hectic and perhaps even chaotic.  Being able to balance all our demands, both personal and professional is an challenge.  Sometimes it may feel as if we’re burning the candle at both ends. However, stress has a negative impact on our health. From heart disease to anxiety, stress affects our health more than we know. Join us in learning how to keep stress under control for Stress Awareness Month with these suggestions to help us better manage stress.

Take a Breath.

Breathing is a powerful tool that can help us alleviate stress. Slowing the breath helps to calm the body and activate the parasympathetic nervous system. That way we’re better able to handle stressful situations.  Personally, I breathe in for four counts, hold for four counts, and then exhale for eight counts.  As I do so, I inhale “peace” and exhale “love.”  I do this during my Physical Therapy.  I also pray.

Get Moving.

Exercise is a great way for us to channel our energy into something productive and calming. In fact, exercise helps to relieve tension from our muscles and release chemicals in our brains that help us feel calmer and happier. When feeling stressed, try taking a quick walk to feel better.  Again, personally, I’m having a bi-lateral hip replacement in late June.  I have been an athlete my entire life.  I thrive on endorphins and serotonin.  I am unable to access them due to my condition.

Fortunately, Miss Millie needs me to move her and thus me!
