3 Tips for Managing Stress
Feeling overwhelmed and stressed lately? You are not alone! With the day-to-day rigor, inexcusable responsibilities, physical demands of everyday life, stress is inevitable. Though stress is a normal part of life, if not properly managed, it can be detrimental to both your physical and mental health. Here are three helpful tips for managing stress
#1. Identify and eliminate your stress triggers
Everyone has a stress trigger(s). These could be job demands, financial crisis, illness, or even agitations from your loved ones. Identify your stressors, then make plans to lessen or eliminate them.
As funny as it sounds, exercise and physical activity have proven effective in relieving stress. Take a walk, run, jog awhile, or channel your energy towards physical activity.
#3. Talk to someone about your problems
A problem shared is half-solved. When you notice you are stressed, it helps to talk to your family, your friends, your doctor, or someone you trust about how you feel.
