Stress can feel overwhelming if you are not careful and mindful. Here are three tips that may be helpful.
The importance of self-care. Aim to get enough sleep, exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet. Try to get about seven to nine hours of sleep each night.
Fit in physical activity each day, ideally at least 30 minutes of physical activity on most days of the week. You can even break it up into 10-minute chunks of time throughout the day. Try walking, swimming, biking or jogging on a treadmill.
Eat a healthy diet, including a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean poultry and fish. Avoid excess sugar, sodium and saturated and trans fats.
By using these simple tips, your stress may become more manageable.
