Dealing With Stress Strategies


  • Pay attention to your breathing through the day. Developing a habit of breathing properly for optimum health and wellbeing.
  • Eat well by consuming whole, unprocessed foods that contain the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that your body needs for optimum health.
  • Sleep for 6 ½-8 hours each night.
  • Stay hydrated by drinking at least 64 ounces of water every day.
  • Exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes each day at least five (5) days a week including both cardio and weight training into your routine.
  • Have fun and pursue a hobby that makes you feel good. (Even if it is just going to lunch with a friend or buying flowers for yourself. Do SOMETHING that makes you feel happy!)
  • Practice meditation or spend time in grateful prayer every morning for 10-20 minutes.
Please understand that incorporating these seven (7) practices into your life daily will not eliminate your stress. If you have a difficult work situation, the difficulty is going to continue even if you are drinking the minimum recommended amount of water every day, and you are getting all the sleep you need. They will improve your overall resilience, however, so you can more proactively and effectively deal with the events that might otherwise throw you for a loop. Incorporating these lifestyle changes into your life will help you. You just need to give them a try to see for yourself.
