4 ways to reduce stress

Stress can have a cumulative effect on your body, lowering your immune function and making you more susceptible to infection or inflammatory diseases and sicknesses. Here’s how you can reduce the stress levels in your life:

1. Reduce Negative Thinking: People with negative attitudes may experience events or emotions as being more stressful than people with positive attitudes. The solution is to plan some fun: take a break.

Unresolved negative emotions and thoughts are caused by a disruption in your body’s subtle energy system. Until that disruption is balanced, willful attempts to change negative thinking will likely be unsuccessful.

2. Improve your Physical Well-being: If you have poor nutritional habits, you are putting your body under physical stress and increasing your risk of infection.

It is recommended that you make healthy food choices and eat reasonable amounts of food according to a schedule. However, a good diet needs you to be in control of your stress since many people rely on comfort food to boost their moods.

3. Increase Your Physical Activity: A lack of physical activity can be stressful for the body, and an increase in physical activity can promote a sense of well-being. It is recommended that adults engage in a scheduled exercise routine at least three times per week.

4. Relax: People who are stressed need to have an outlet for their stress. It has been shown that people without hobbies, outside interests or means of relaxation may have a more difficult time handling stress. What is recommended is taking small retreats, finding a hobby and making time for yourself to practice relaxation techniques
