meditateAfter a long and gruesome winter, we’re all feeling a little bit stressed. Unfortunately, even without a record-breaking snowy winter, stress is an unavoidable part of life. But the good news is that there are simple ways to manage stress so it doesn’t impact our emotional or physical health. Here are just  a few tips to get you started:

  1. Give yourself a break: Do something you enjoy every day. Make time for leisure activities that make you happy. Listening to music, reading your favorite book, writing in a journal are all great ways to relieve stress.
  2. Eat healthy: Be mindful of what you eat as a healthy body is better prepared to cope with stress.
  3. Exercise: As spring approaches, this is a time to recommit to your work-out schedule. Physical activity is a great way to manage emotional and physical stress.
  4. Meditate: Take a few minutes every day to collect your thoughts and think about something pleasant. This is your time to take a break from all responsibilities and unwind.
  5. Get enough rest: Sleep is a powerful remedy. A good night of sleep will rejuvenate your body.

Above all, learn how to take good care of yourself. Taking time for yourself is important for both preventing and managing stress.
