We live in a fast-paced society, and we try to fit as many things as we can into one day. We juggle work, family, friends and many other responsibilities, and it makes it hard to wind down and relax. If we don’t manage our stress, we can end up getting sick or we start feeling run down. Here are 5 ways to manage your stress:

1. Exercise

Working out every day is a great way to manage your stress. Your body releases endorphins, which interact with receptors in your brain that reduce your perception of pain. Endorphins bind to neuron receptors, which are the same ones that bind some pain medicines. They trigger a positive feeling, often described as “euphoria.” This can help you get into a more positive mindset and gets your muscles moving, so you can feel physically less tense as well.

2. Breathing Exercises

Regulating your breathing is another important step. An easy technique to use Is the 4-7-8 breathing technique. It reduces anxiety and controls anger responses, while relaxing your body. It can help you reduce your anxiety and sleep better. To do it, sit or lay down and empty your lungs of air, breathe in through your nose for 4 seconds, hold your breath for 7, and exhale forcefully through your mouth for 8. Repeat this up to 4 times.

3. Eating Well

Eating a well-balanced diet can help you feel better in general, but getting the correct vitamins and minerals can also help you manage your stress levels. Your meals should be full of vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and lean protein for energy. A good way to start eating well is to use the Resolution Meal Plan to get you on track. Make sure you don’t skip any meals either, because this can increase your stress levels.

4. Hobbies

Taking time for yourself can be essential to releasing your stress. Hobbies like reading or coloring can relax you and prepare your body for a restful sleep. If you find something that you love to do, you can even go to an event for it. For example, you can take a cooking class with your friends if you love cooking as a hobby. It’s a great way to get out of the house and enjoy time with your friends as you de-stress.
