Stress Awareness: How stress can affect your health

April is Stress Awareness Month, and we want to highlight the importance of recognizing when stress is affecting your physical and mental health. Stress can be debilitating, and can sometimes aggravate existing health problems. It is important to know when stress is taking over, and to learn what strategies work for you to help cope. Try a few of these techniques to help overcome the weight of the stress in your life. 

-Meditation: Learning how to quiet the mind can help quiet the sounds of stressors in our head. Even taking a few minutes a day to disconnect and take a few deep breaths can be beneficial in managing stress

-Exercise: Walking, biking, hiking, or lifting weights can all help to release stress in the physical body. Adding exercise and fresh air to your daily routine may reduce the amount of stress you’re currently experiencing

-See Your Doctor: If you’re experiencing stress that has become too overwhelming for daily life, make an appointment with your doctor. They can offer medical advice in order to deal with an overwhelming amount of stress
