A Moment of Wellness….Tips for Reducing Stress

After reading an article on WebMD,  there’s more resourceful information on how to reduce stress. “If you are one of the millions of stressed-out Americans, there’s good news. People can learn to manage stress. Start with these stress management tips:

  • Keep a positive attitude.

  • Accept that there are events that you cannot control.

  • Be assertive instead of aggressive. “Assert” your feelings, opinions, or beliefs instead of becoming angry, defensive, or passive.

  • Learn and practice relaxation techniques.

  • Exercise regularly. Your body can fight stress better when it is fit.

  • Eat healthy, well-balanced meals.

  • Get enough rest and sleep. Your body needs time to recover from stressful events.

  • Don’t rely on alcohol or drugs to reduce stress.

  • Seek out social support.

  • Learn to manage your time more effectively.”
