Do’s and Don’ts for managing stress

In the hustle and bustle of today’s society, stress is increasingly present and is creating implications for health and well being worldwide. Success magazine has provided a few tips on how to effectively manage stress and things to avoid in order to limit not only the amount of stress in our lives but how we react to it

Anxiety and Stress are totally normal and is actually what makes life interesting and is a key motivator. It is however how we respond to stress that can directly impact our health, either positively or negatively.

  1. List-making is your best friend
    Keep a notebook next to your bed in order to take down all the important dates, deadlines and to do items in your head when you think of them. This will ensure that you don’t miss or jumble up all the different dates in your head but also clear your head and shake off the feeling that you’re forgetting something.
  2. Decrease screen time
    In this age of technology, screen time is becoming more and more of an issue. If you stare at bright screens an hour or two before you go to bed, your brain becomes stimulated and inhibits the production of melatonin which affects your sleep.
  3. Target your stress-eating tendencies now
    Often when your stressed your brain really craves action such as reaching for the packet of chips in and repetitively munching on them, one by one. Research shows that repeated addictive behaviour such as turning to food when experiencing stress actually changes your brain circuitry to interpret food as the response to stress. Next time when you do want to reach for that packet of chips, instead get up and go for a walk or do a short activity like push ups, research has shown that even a short walk, 10-mins is enough to reduce cravings for snacks.
