When we experience stress on a daily basis it can have harmful effects on our body. In fact, stress seems to increase health conditions like obesity, heart disease, and depression. For these reasons, scheduling time for yourself is not only important for your mental health, it’s important for your physical health as well. Many of us are so busy with work, school, and home life that often there is no time left over to do something that you enjoy. To help you, our staff at Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center put together some tips that will not only lower your stress but may lower your health risks as well.
- Indulge in a massage – set aside some time to experience the complete and total bliss of a massage. It soothes both the mind and muscles, improves sleep quality, and reduces stress.
- Unplug – these days it seems like we’re all glued to our phones, laptops, or even both at the same time. Taking a break from social media, email, blogging, and so on can help us recharge and gives our brain the downtime it needs to work at an optimal level.
- Get outside – ditching the comfort of your home is a great way to improve mental and physical health.
