Combat Stress: Renew You

Feeling stressed out? Stress affects not only how you take care of your body, but also your mindset. Living an unbalanced life—one with all work and no play—can lead to:

  • Unhealthy eating habits
  • Lack of exercise
  • Relationship trouble over time

How can you make sure your life is balanced with both work and play? Do something you enjoy! Try to schedule time with yourself to help forget the day’s worries.

  • Read a new book
  • Take a bath
  • Listen to music
  • Spend time with a friend
  • Practice yoga
  • Volunteer and help others

If you’re feeling stressed, don’t be afraid to reach out to others. During hard times, it’s helpful to know you’re not alone. Sometimes just talking about an issue aloud can help you figure out ways to cope or solve a problem.

Consider calling a friend of family member, journaling, or reaching out to a counselor. Find a counselor near you here: http://therapists.psychologytoday.com/rms/prof_search.php
