Don't Let Stress Get You Down: Try This

By Virginia Laird

As you strive to maintain good health, one aspect that can be overlooked is stress. An abundance of unmanaged stress and anxiety can prove to wreak havoc on wellness. Health and wellness experts say that stress can impact blood pressure, cause migraines, and much more. Instead of waiting for stress to go away, these professionals say there are things you can do to help ease your pain, including:

  • Make sleep a priority
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Spend time outside

Make Sleep a Priority

For those struggling with stress and anxiety, it can be necessary to take a long look at the amount of sleep you are getting each night. Health and wellness experts say there is a strong link between your mental health and stress. Those who are serious about reducing their stress and anxiety should make certain they are getting plenty of sleep each night. It is suggested that the average adult get at least six hours of sleep routinely. However, there are millions who require much more than this. Figure out how much sleep you need each night and start going to bed at a time that allows you to get the rest you need.

Drink Plenty of Water

You might be thinking: What does the water have to do with my stress level? However, experts say that your overall wellness can play a part in the body's ability to prevent stress. Consuming too much sugar in juices, or drinking lots of soda, can hamper your overall health. Having poor health can be a culprit for a great deal of stress. For those who are serious about managing their stress, it is necessary that you make water a priority. Health and wellness experts suggest that you try to consume at least half of your body weight in ounces of water each day.

Spend Time Outside

These same professionals have suggested that spending time outdoors can be beneficial to your stress. Getting fresh air can help clear the mind of clutter. It is not necessary that you have a rigid schedule for this outdoor time. Instead, your time can be spent sitting on the porch, walking through your neighborhood, or even enjoying some yard work. Make sure that you find at least 30 minutes each day to get outside and enjoy the fresh air and sunlight.

With all these ideas and tips, you are sure to find a way to begin tackling your stress. Start today reducing your stress and enjoy life again!
