Minimize Your Stress Through Healthy Living


The better you take care of yourself the better you are prepared for the stresses of life. Follow these suggestions and give yourself a fighting chance. We all know stress is a part of life so the better equipped we are to deal with the little ups and downs we encounter on a regular basis, the better we perform.

• Eat breakfast. Everyone knows this but it is worth a reminder. Eating breakfast starts your metabolism and delivers sustained energy levels. It can help prevent cravings from occurring as well. Having some protein in the morning is always recommended.

• Put whole foods front and center. Eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains and dairy is the surest way to consume a wide variety of the important nutrients that your body needs. These are the foods that make up a balanced diet and provide you a basis of good health.

• Eat healthy fats! Unsaturated fats such as those found in olive oil, avocados, nuts and seeds can actually help to reduce your cholesterol level and decrease your risk of heart disease and stroke. You want to include these healthy fats in your meals and have them as often as possible.

• Avoid packaged foods whenever possible. They contain far too many preservatives. Eat fresh fruits whenever possible.

• Keep your portions in check. This is simply a good habit to get in and stay in.

• Drink lots of water and stay hydrated.

• Take advantage of short periods of time when you can exercise throughout the day. Take the stairs versus an elevator. Get up and move around. Stretch whenever possible and avoid just sitting in a chair for long periods of time.

• Sleep soundly. Make sure you get at least 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep per night. Sleep is critical when fighting off stress.

• Make sure your house is well stocked with healthy foods. Purge your pantry of snacks such as high fat potato chips and cookies that are easy to grab and bad for you. Instead choose nuts, fruits and high fiber snacks that are good for you.

• Take time for relaxation and clearing your mind. 20 minutes in the morning before you start your day is an ideal amount of time and make sure you have another 20 minutes at the end of the day to recap and settle before going to bed.

• Laughter is a wonderful medicine. Look for opportunities where you can laugh and let the stress float away.

• Treat yourself to a massage regularly. While this may seem decadent, a massage is a great way to ward off muscle tension.

• Brain storm problems with a mentor so you are not taking them on by yourself. Incorporate the sundown rule too where you don’t take your problems home.

• Make big projects into small ones so they seem less daunting. Do a little each day and before you know it a big task is done.

• Be sure to celebrate your successes!!
