How Stressed Are You?

We all have to deal with a little stress, some of us, more than others.  Sometimes stress can be a good thing- it can enhance your productivity.  However, too much stress can create or worsen physical and emotional problems.  Try to manage your stress levels through a healthy lifestyle and simple tension-reducing activities.

See if this will help in your every day life:

  • Exercise regularly; aim for 30 minutes every day.
  • Eat right.  Protein-containing foods and those that contain Vitamins A, B, and C protect us from stress.
  • Develop a positive attitude.
  • Manage time efficiently.
  • Talk things out; don’t hold feelings in.
  • Understand that every crisis gives you an occasion to grow and learn.
  • Get sufficient sleep.
  • Have a support network of people you can count on for help.
  • Stretch away tension; there are stretching exercises that can be done at your desk.
