April is National Stress Awareness Month. Stress is unfortunately an unavoidable part of life, so it’s essential to have an effective stress management plan to help recognize stressors and deal with resulting stress. There is no one-size fits all approach to managing stress, so it’s especially important to have a variety of tools at your disposal. Here are some different approaches to managing stress:
Eat healthy, get enough sleep, and exercise - Your body can deal with stress much better when it is healthy and properly fueled with the necessary nutrients it needs.
Breathing exercises - Take a step back from a stressful situation and take some deep breaths. Inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth can help you visualize physically releasing the thing that is causing you stress.
Learn to say no - Your time is yours. Don’t feel the need to provide a reason for not doing anything, a simple no is more than sufficient. If you need a day to yourself, take it!
Talk to someone - Social support can be extremely beneficial at dealing with stress. Maybe all it takes is talking to a friend or family member, or maybe you make an appointment with a therapist. Simply vocalizing the issue can often provide a degree of relief.
The most important thing is that you have multiple ways of dealing with stress in your life. To provide an added boost to managing your stress, try Kanna Affects Stress or Bud’s Bounty CBD capsules. These can provide support to your body during times of stress and also support you on your journey of healthy living.
