“Stress” is such a nebulous term, and can be a good or a bad thing. Depending on the extent to which you channel your stress in a negative way, you could be doing yourself a great deal of physical damage. From sleep deprivation to weight gain to general malaise and poor relationships, stress really can kill you. Be aware - take a stress test, measure your blood pressure, and see the following items below to get ahead of your stress when it starts to overwhelm or stifle your life.
Want to Know How Stressed You Are?
Best Way to To Regulate Stress 24/7, in 60 seconds flat.
If you want to feel in control for a presentation, when you’re stuck in traffic, or even for going to the dentist, use “box breathing.” It’s a trick that Navy SEALs learn to use before going into a high-stakes mission. This will keep your mind in the present moment instead of slipping into anxiety or running away with thoughts.
Directions: Inhale for four counts. Hold that breath for four counts. Exhale for four counts. Hold for another four counts. Keep repeating this pattern. You can do this through your nose if you’re already calm, in your nose and out your mouth to regulate energy or all through your mouth to channel the energy of the stress.
