Tools to Effectively Manage Stress

0

Increase your ability to effectively manage stress by including these five tools in your wellness plan!

Eat Healthily

More than 1400 chemical changes occur as stress hormones, such as cortisone, deplete important nutrients such as B vitamins, vitamin C and magnesium from the body. A balanced, varied diet provides your body with the nutrients it needs to handle stress.

Exercise

Exercise stimulates the body to release endorphins, which are brain chemicals that improve mood and relieve stress.

Outlook

Your outlook influences the way you see things. Change is a healthy, normal part of life. Think of challenges as opportunities.

Relax

Relaxing is a release valve for stress. Relaxation methods vary by individual and can include meditation, yoga and exercise.

Restorative Sleep

Practicing good sleep hygiene will give your body an opportunity to recover from everyday stress.
