Stress from increased workloads, arguments with loved ones, financial worries or big life changes can layer on top of each other to create a stress response in the body. These responses often manifest themselves in changes in behavior, intense emotions or physical symptoms. The key to managing stress is in learning strategies to deal with it so that it doesn’t become a bigger issue. Here are some of the best ways that you can manage stress symptoms and ensure that you stay ahead of the curve.
Staying active and keeping your body fit and healthy is absolutely vital in managing stress. Regular exercise lowers the amount of stress hormones such as epinephrine and cortisol in the body, it helps to release endorphins which improve your mood and act as natural painkillers. Regular exercise is also proven to improve the quality of your sleep, which is often one of the first things to be affected by stress. It also helps you to gain confidence in your self-image which in turn promotes feelings of well-being.
