Live with Less Stress

by Cascade Ice on July 11, 2011

With all the activities we try to cram into one day it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and stressed out. While the body works its best under moderate amounts of stress, continuously being stressed can really harm your health. Stress can negatively affect your blood sugar metabolism and cause diabetes. It can also harm your immune system and make you more prone to getting sick. You can reduce these health risks by reducing your stress.

Decrease the amount of stress in your daily life by following these easy steps:

  • Give your brain a break. Each day find about 10 minutes to unwind by listening to music or just sitting on a park bench and enjoying the scenery.
  • Don’t multitask all the time. Sometimes it’s unavoidable, but limiting your time spent multitasking can help you feel calmer.
  • Take a vacation. This one might seem a little obvious, but this mental break will help your creativity and productivity when you get back to work. It will also put you in a better mood!

Giving yourself these small mental breaks can really impact your stress levels. Lowering your stress can keep your body and mind healthy.
