Less Stress: 3 Tips to Make It Happen

By Genevieve Cunningham

Stress is such a bummer. No matter who you are, what kind of job you have, or what your family is like, chances are really good that stress is a significant part of your life. We just can’t escape it. But managing it and keeping the effects of stress under control is crucial for long-term health and wellness. Excessive amounts of stress can be damaging to the heart, mind, and various systems within the body. So what are we to do? If you need to get a handle on the stress in your life, take a look at these three tips to get you moving in the right direction.

Exercise

This is such a beneficial aspect of health, yet far too many people ignore the need for exercise. For stress, exercise is imperative. When we engage the body in physical stress via exercise, mental stress slowly but steadily falls by the wayside. If you find that your most stressful time of day is just after work, pack a bag and hit the gym on your way home. By making this a routine, you may find that your stress levels are significantly lower by the time you walk through the front door at the day’s end.

Bedtime Routine

Almost nothing beats a good bedtime routine. When we have a specific routine that we follow at the end of the day, our body gradually releases stress and worries as we perform each action. Make dinner and eat -- a little stress falls away. Watch your favorite show and then shower -- a little more stress falls away. Read a book in bed before turning off the light -- the last of the stress melts away from our minds. While everyone’s routine will likely look different, a solid and expected routine can be a lifesaver when it comes to lowering stress and getting better rest every day.

Chiropractic Care

Many are surprised to see this on a list of stress relieving activities, but the truth is that it works for many people. Chiropractors don’t typically focus on your stress levels, but the care that you receive may indirectly impact your stress. As chiropractors remove restrictions from the vertebrae of the spine, you may notice much less pain and tension, much greater flexibility, and a general boost in your health. The truth is that physical health can significantly impact mental health. By improving physical well-being and releasing tension on a regular basis, you may find that letting go of worry and stress is much easier.
