Being alive is stressful.

Life changes such as birth of a baby, death of a family member, divorce, a new job are all stressful. Just being alive and adjusting to our changing society is enough to make you stressed-out.

Being Alive Is Stressful

Just being alive and adjusting to our changing society is enough to make you stressed-out.

Research  has  shown good nutrition and sleep to be  good  coping strategies for combating the extra demands that stress places on your body. This is especially important for the first two  years after spousal death or separation/divorce.

Headache and increased susceptiblity to illness are common results of stress.   

Life changes such as birth of a baby, death of a family member, divorce, a new job are all stressful.

Physical  exercise  is  also important. It  relaxes  your  tensed muscles, increases your energy, helps you sort out problems, and improves your immune system and your self-image.

  Being alive could be the leading cause of stress. Then add stressful changes in our society and those in your life. 

 

A  regular  program of aerobic exercise for at least 20  minutes three times weekly will counteract the physiological and psychological toll that stress causes. Aerobic exercise can be fast walking,  bicycling, swimming, aerobic dancing, rowing, or  jogging.

Physical exercise has another bonus. It improves the way you look to others and raises your self-esteem. Often high self-esteem makes you better able to cope with stress.

To many people  coping with stress is equated with taking  tranquilizers, drinking, smoking or abusing other drugs.

Don’t  do  it! These methods only create further stress on your body.

Learn  a deep relaxation technique instead. Twenty minutes  daily spent in deep relaxation also decreases stress. It  makes  you feel calm, less anxious and less tense.

Deep Relaxation will introduce you to a method of relaxing during stressful times. You might also want to  explore hypnosis. It has been a great stress reducer for many singles.

Massage has also been shown to be beneficial during times of stress. There is something very relaxing about the human touch for adults and children alike.
