Stress management strategy #6: Adopt a healthy lifestyle

Stress management strategy #6: Adopt a healthy lifestyle

You can increase your resistance to stress by strengthening your physical health.

  • Exercise regularly.  Physical activity plays a key role in reducing and preventing the effects of stress.  Make time for at least 30 minutes of exercise, three times per week.  Nothing beats aerobic exercise for releasing pent-up stress and tension.
  • Eat a healthy diet.  Well-nourished bodies are better prepared to cope with stress, so be mindful of what you eat.  Start your day right with breakfast, and keep your energy up and your mind clear with balanced, nutritious meals throughout the day.
  • Reduce caffeine and sugar.  The temporary “highs” caffeine and sugar provide often end in with a crash in mood and energy.  By reducing the amount of coffee, soft drinks, chocolate, and sugar snacks in your diet, you’ll feel more relaxed and you’ll sleep better.
  • Avoid alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs.  Self-medicating with alcohol or drugs may provide an easy escape from stress, but the relief is only temporary.  Don’t avoid or mask the issue at hand; deal with problems head on and with a clear mind.
  • Get enough sleep.  Adequate sleep fuels your mind, as well as your body.  Feeling tired will increase your stress because it may cause you to think irrationally.

    Stress can be defined many different ways. The most common definition is, stress is the body’s response to an outside situation in one’s life. Stress effects one’s environment, life and others around them in many ways. Sometimes these situations get the better of us and we have trouble dealing with the feelings of stress. You may become irritable, hostile, angry or overly sensitive just to name a few. Sometimes our physical body deals with the stress in an unhealthy way as well. You may have high blood pressure, become depressed, develop ulcers, or have a heart attack. It is important to learn what your stress triggers are and how to deal with both the triggers and the effects. Only by learning this will you be able to successfully manage your stress.:
