To be stressed is to be alive. And however uncomfortable it makes you, it is a universal feeling that is a part of the imperfect human experience. Stress saps your energy, causes fatigue, and increases negative thoughts that can contribute to anxious feelings. Fortunately, there are ways to build up a healthy response to stress that can even reverse the uncomfortable feelings over time. The most basic and important way to mitigate stress is by taking care of yourself. It may sound simple, but your mind and body are connected in powerful ways and by maintaining your physical, emotional, and mental reserves, you can actually prevent and manage stress. Adapted from Jessica DuBois-Maahs’ article ( Points (4): Consider doing less (barriers between work/study home blurred) Make time for reflection Soak up the sun Commit to regular exercise Accept what you cannot change, adapt and take care of yourself. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast.
