Reducing Stress: Some Advice to Try

By Virginia Laird

For many, stress is nothing new. Rather, it has become an expected part of working life. Health and wellness professionals suggest living with stress can be detrimental for the body and the mind. While you may not be able to completely get rid of all stress life has to offer, it is vital to find a way to reduce such stress. There are a variety of things health and wellness experts suggest trying in order to help get stress in check, including:

  • Have a bedtime
  • Do some yard work
  • Go for a walk

Have a Bedtime

Getting enough sleep plays a huge factor in stress. If you are one who suffers with stress, you know how detrimental it can be to your body. Rather that throwing in the towel or relying on medicine to help mask the symptoms of stress, it is best to make getting enough sleep a priority. Sleep experts advise that adults should get a minimum of at least six hours of uninterrupted sleep each night.

Do Some Yard Work

For many, working in the yard can be help reduce stress. Those who embrace this as a viable stress reliever admit that working (something different than your job) on a task that requires some thought can help take your mind off of work as well as any other thing which may be the culprit of your stress. If you are ready to put your stress behind you (if only for a little while) gather your yard tools and head out for a day of soaking up the sun, pruning the bushes, and making your yard beautiful.

Go for a Walk

Exercise of any kind can help release tension in the body caused by stress. While many believe this means spending hours on end at the gym, it can be simpler than that. Health and wellness experts suggest that walking at least 20 minutes each day can help take your mind off your worries and give you something to do to let go of the hassle of work. If you are one who suffers with stress, it may be time to plan to add a walk to your day either at lunch or after work.

Now is the time to make ridding your life of stress a priority. Doing so, can have positive impacts on your physical and mental health.
