April 16th, 2012 is recognized as National Stress Awareness Day

StressThis gives us time to reflect on our lives - and inevitably our stress.  However, we would like for you to consider some ways for you to deal with your stress in a healthy manner.  

True, in and of itself stress is not bad. It can gear us up to meet a challenge. In life-threatening situations, stress has enabled people to perform feats they would never have believed they were capable of. When you had an important assignment, stress may have generated a surge of adrenaline that enabled you to carry out the task on time.  However, stress has a huge impact on all aspects of our well-being—mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual.  Left unchecked or unbalanced, prolonged stress can lead to bad effects on your body.  To name a few side effects.... headaches, neck pain, heart disease, and ulcers.

How, though, can we keep stress at manageable levels so that we can get the most out of our life? The following are some steps for you to consider as you celebrate today as a stress-free day:
  • Prioritize your life.  Have you found yourself thinking, "I've got too much to do and not enough time to do it"?  We jam-pack our day with too many things to do.  This in itself will lead to stress as we are constantly carrying on that list to the next day.  Try to prioritize - do the most important things first and this will give you a sense of accomplishment.
  • Take a break.  Set aside the list and spend the day in a stress free way with your loved ones.  Laughing with your friends and loved ones is just what the doctor ordered for dealing with stress.
  • Eat Right.  Unfortunately when dealing with stress we tend to eat foods that are not healthy for us.  However, eating healthy and our stress levels are closely related.
  • Sleep.  This maybe the most important key to keeping stress levels manageable.  Make sure you are getting the recommended 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night.
  • Exercise.  A short walk around the neighborhood or office can offer immediate relief in a stressful situation.  This gets the blood moving and will improve your mood almost instantaneously.
Tom Jones Insurance is committed to helping our community live healthy and happier lives.  Celebrate National Stress Awareness Day by relieving your stress for today and make long term decisions that will relieve you and your families stress for tomorrow.
