#1052: MM- Tips to Help Reduce Stress

This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. This entire week we’re focusing on health tips for the New Year. Today’s tip is about finding a new way to handle your stress. Stress is real and sometimes it’s unavoidable. How you handle that stress is the difference between good health and bad health. In order to stay healthy, you need to have good outlets. Things like journaling before bed, exercising in the morning and evening, and adequate sleep will all help your body recover when it’s on overload. Don’t flip on the television, specifically the news, and think that will help you calm down. Instead, it will have the opposite effect. We all have only so much mental bandwidth. Use yours wisely. When you feel yourself getting stress, acknowledge it and take steps to burn the excess energy off. Don’t be afraid to turn on the radio and sing along to your favorite song at the top of your lungs, or take up kickboxing when the stress is really high.
