Most people experience stress and it doesn’t have to be work-related to be legitimate. In fact, stress can come from any number of life experiences like challenging family relationships, financial worries, even friends. Some stress is actually healthy, helping us prioritize and make important decisions when necessary. But elevated levels of stress that go unmanaged can be very unhealthy, even leading to other more dangerous health conditions. Before stress gets the best of you, conquer it with three easy strategies.
Get Proactive – Who says you have to wait for stress to be out of control before you deal with it? A better strategy for dealing with everyday hassles is to be proactive. That means get ahead of your stress by anticipating when things will be challenging and making preparations to handle more difficult situations. If you know when your in-laws are in town visiting, that it’s stressful, then plan a few fun activities ahead of time to keep everyone busy. It often doesn’t take much effort to proactively manage stress, it’s generally just a matter of knowing when it’s coming and learning to anticipate anxiety before it sets in.
Slow Down – In today’s fast paced, unpredictable world, most of us are on super speed mode on a constant basis – we can’t wait until tomorrow for anything. While some of this might be a consequence of work and deadlines, there are often other areas of life where we can slow the pace. The trick to healthy living is to recognize where these opportunities are and to maximize them to balance life/work stress. It could be as straightforward as taking a Saturday to relax and catch up on a few great movies, cutting back on the number of after work responsibilities you tackle in a day or simply spending an extra fifteen minutes in bed every morning. Slowing down will help you recharge, unwind and most importantly, more effectively handle the stress you do have to face every day.
Relax Your Body, Mind and Soul In a Hot Tub – Don’t miss one of the easiest, most convenient ways to alleviate stress – the hot tub. Sitting in warm, massaging water is the perfect way to take a few moments and reflect on what is stressful while treating the aches, pains and stiffness that accompany high levels of stress. Tension headaches, low back pain, tight shoulders and a stiff neck are often consequences of stress that goes unmanaged. With heat and massage, these conditions can be eliminated. Better than a bath, the intense heat from the hot tub penetrates deep beneath the skin to really get into the muscles and joints that are affected, providing instant relief and an all-over sense of calm.
Stress doesn’t have to be debilitating or unhealthy. By getting ahead of difficult situations, slowing down when possible and taking time to relax and unwind in a hot tub, you can easily beat stress before it beats you.
