)-- “The impact of stress is incredible. It affects both the young and the old. It makes it hard to concentrate on work or school,” said Connie Petersen general manager of Hot Spring Spas of Iowa.
“It causes or exacerbates many serious illnesses such as heart conditions, hypertension and even diabetes,” continued Petersen. Here is a helpful guide to help you live a stress-free life and avoid the harmful effects of stress.
Work Smart - Work, whether it is at a job or in school, takes up most of the daily lives of people everywhere. It is a primary focus that is fueled by the need to provide a living or prepare for life. It is vital, and important, but it should never be allowed to overwhelm or become so stressful that it causes health or emotional problems.
Working smart can go a long way to relieving even the most stressful jobs. Pay attention to tasks that need to be done and don’t put them off. Procrastinating on the job, whether it is a chore at home, school work or items that need to be done at work, only make the tasks more difficult. Worrying about how to get a job done creates more stress than actually doing the task at hand.
Make a list of what needs to be done, and do each part in order. Take note of what parts of a job can be done together to lessen the workload, or where others can help out to get a job done; everything that makes a job easier takes away some of the stress and gets it done quicker.
Live Healthy - Pay attention to good eating habits and get plenty of exercise. It may not seem like food or exercise has anything to do with stress levels, but without proper nourishment and physical fitness, the body cannot function properly and becomes stressed. Elevated blood pressure and the difficulty of carrying around extra weight creates additional stress on the body.
Relax a Little - Take a few minutes every day to relax. The best time of day to relax is right before bed. It gives the body a chance to unwind and prepare for a good night’s sleep. One of the best ways to unwind after a long day of work is to enjoy the many benefits of a hot tub. The warm water increases circulation and allows more oxygen to flow to the brain and muscles. The massaging jets of a hot tub also soothes aches and pains, and have even been shown to combat major illnesses. A study done by the McKee Medical Center proved that as little as 30 minutes a day in a hot tub reduced blood sugar levels in patients with Type II diabetes by as much as 13%. Improving all areas of health eases the strain and stress on the body and improves mental well-being, too.
