Got Stress?

We have found the CURE for stress!

Okay, so we haven't found the actual cure... but we have some helpful tips to share, in honor of National Stress Awareness Day!

Stress. Doesn't it stress you out just reading that word?! Stress is defined as "a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances." Everybody suffers from stress occasionally, and nobody likes the presence of it in their lives. Here are some tips to help you tackle stress head on, and overcome it in your personal life.

1) Take a deep, relaxing breath! Close your eyes while you do it to increase the effectiveness of this activity. A few cleansing breaths can help reduce stress, blood pressure, and toxins in the body! Believe it or not, deep breathing also results in better blood flow, which reduces other ailments such as swelling and discomfort in the body.

2) Exercise the stress away! Calories won't be the only thing you blast as you get your heart rate up for 20 or more minutes a day. Exercise releases "feel good" hormones called "endorphins," that provide your body an overall sense of well-being and relaxation. Sweat the stress out!

3) Journal your thoughts! Journaling is a therapeutic way to get the stressful thoughts out of your head and onto paper. Jotting thoughts down helps you externalize them, see them from a fresh perspective, and it often leads to solutions being made, or a peaceful resolution.

You are fully capable of taking these simple steps to reduce your stress levels right now! Your health is in your hands. We encourage you to live healthy and happy.
