Feeling Stressed? Here's How to Fight Back!
Work, school, kids, a spouse, the community, household chores, and the list goes on and on. What is this list? Just a small sample of a typical day in the lives of millions of people. With such busy lives, stress is an inevitable part of it. Of course, stress is really hard on the body and mind. When we get too much stress it can cause a wide variety of negative symptoms ranging from aches to insomnia to heart problems.
Obviously, it’s important to keep stress levels in check as much as possible. If you, like most people, find keeping stress levels down to be a challenge, check out these 3 ways to fight stress from the inside out.
Yoga and/or Meditation
Both yoga and meditation are excellent ways to reduce stress levels. Both practices teach methods for quieting the mind and enlisting the help of your own self discipline. Those that report either of these practices (or both!) on a regular basis report much lower levels of stress, and even a healthier sense of self than those that don’t.
Walking in nature is calming to the mind and spirit. The walking, in itself, gives the body a healthy dose of exercise which can contribute to less stress as well as better overall health. Then nature brings a relaxing and calming effect to the experience. In fact, there is a religion that promotes nature walks once a week. This particular group of people report the lowest stress levels of all adults in America. Many researchers contribute this solely to the consistent practice of walking through nature.
Chiropractic care is a great way to improve overall health of the body. Sometimes, the vertebrae of the spine become misaligned. These misalignments are called subluxations, and they can bring a host of negative symptoms to the body. As the spine is aligned properly through the help of a chiropractor, the body is able to function more efficiently, and it often sees better overall health as a wonderful side effect. This includes a reduction in stress levels, as those with healthy bodies almost always report lower levels of stress.
