Unwind From Your Stress

Life itself can be stressful. This fast-paced lifestyle that we have become accustomed to is hard on our bodies and on our minds. When the stress becomes too much, we break down or burn out. With the holidays fast approaching, many will begin to feel that burned out feeling that stress can bring.

10 Ways To Prevent Burnout

  • Eat Healthy; Live Healthy – This can be done by eating well, sleeping well, exercising regularly and drinking ample amounts of water. Give your body a little extra strength to combat your stress!
  • Protect Yourself Herbally – Adaptogens are a great defense!
  • Get Energy Naturally – Try choosing herbs, B vitamins and amino acids instead of caffeine.
  • Increase Magnesium – It’s a natural stress reliever that our foods are now deficient in.
  • MOVE! – When you’re stressed, the Cortisol levels in your body increase. If the excess isn’t burned off with exercise and movement, it damages your body!
  • Check In With Yourself – Do something nice for yourself to unwind. Hot baths, yoga, meditation, reading a favorite book, all of these ways to spend time with yourself will rebuild some stress-fighting strength!
  • Just Breathe – Take a few moments to focus on your breathing. Feel the air rush in and exhale it slowly. Practice relaxing breathing techniques or try a yoga routine.
  • Take Out The Garbage – If there are things in your life causing you stress that you CAN live without, get rid of it. It will feel good to leave it all on the curb.
