These are healthful tips for better managing your stress levels.
Jog, swim or bike
Exercise increases the flow of endorphins, which are natural pain relievers responsible for what is called “the runner’s high”.
In addition, exercising, if done two to three times a week, will improve your circulation and help relieve chronic tension and anxiety.
You may also find you reap more enjoyment from life!
Simply walking in good shoes with flexible soles can be one of the best forms of exercise.
If you can only manage a short walk in the beginning, even ten minutes, remember that any new habit begins with one small step.
Practising stretches every hour or two, if done properly, can help relieve muscle tension and even prevent injury.
Ask me for suggestions.
Get regular exposure to outdoor light and fresh air
This can reduce the effects of seasonal affective disorder and stress in general to lift your spirits!
Get a complete physical evaluation
To rule out any conditions that may be taking their toll.
Ask your doctor for recommendations for vitamins and other supplements
Some supplements seem to help increase energy levels and balance hormones and other nutrients in the body.
Seek professional help
If you feel that stress threatens to overwhelm you, seek a professional counsellor.
Drink plenty of water
Many of us don’t drink enough pure water.
Get regular massage
To reinforce your ability to let go of stress.
Take a yoga or tai chi class
Ask me for a referral to a qualified instructor.
Yours in good health,
