Stress is with us all the time and anxiety is also a common experience for most people. When left to take their course, both heightened stress levels and feelings of anxiety can trigger harmful processes in the body – processes that can even lead to the development of illnesses. Fortunately, there are many ways to relieve stress and anxiety – here are some:
- Change your attitude – one of the potential reasons why some are more stressed than others is the increased need of these people to control all the things around them. Accepting that you cannot control everything and that is ok might help a lot;
- Pay attention to what you eat – following a nutritious diet is essential for giving your mind and your body what they need to be able to cope with daily stress. Have lots of leafy greens, legumes and whole grains and replace fatty meat with poultry and fish;
- Exercise more – Downtown’s Healthcare providers assert that including a 20-30-minute exercise session every day is a great way to get your body moving, to improve your blood circulation and to tone your body. It is also an excellent way to divert or to stop racing thought and to relieve anxiety.
