Stress Management

Feeling Stressed?

Emotional stress can lead to high blood pressure, and is also linked to increased susceptibility to substance abuse and illness, less resistance to disease, and depression. Learn stress management techniques to help you deal with stress in your home and work life, and talk with your doctor about your concerns.

 

Tips to Reduce or Manage the Stress in Your Life:

  • Eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. A nutritious, well-balanced diet and exercise can keep your body fit and able to resist disease. Exercise also is an excellent way to elevate your mood.
  • Talk about your stressful situations with someone you trust. Sometimes, just talking about your problems and concerns can help you put them into perspective and give you insights into ways to deal with them.
  • Stay organized to help manage your time more efficiently.
  • Remember, no one can do it all alone, so ask for help.
  • Use relaxation techniques to calm your mind and body.
  • Get professional help if you need it.
