What You Can Do To Recognize And Reduce Stress
We hear it again and again at The Guyer Institute: I want to reduce stress. What can I do?
Stress can come from relationship problems, money woes, being out of shape, worrying about your children. The list of stressors is almost endless.
“Stress produces a series of responses in the body and in the mind, says Dale Guyer, MD, founder of The Guyer Institute. “But if it persists, the rush of chemicals can have a series of damaging effects. Finding ways to calm yourself – to reduce stress – is essential.”
Stress can lead to a faster heartbeat, higher blood pressure, shallow breathing, and weakened immune systems. Also: headaches, sleeplessness, loss of libido, and even depression.
Over time, these impacts can disrupt the body and mind’s natural balance. When we’re “out of sync,” your health can pay the price. You feel burned out, can’t concentrate as well, are often angry.
The team at The Guyer Institute knows that exercise, better nutrition, meditation and breathing exercises can all reduce stress. So can talking things out with friends or a counselor, prioritizing what’s important and what’s not, and taking quiet time for you.
Yoga is a proven way to reduce stress. The controlled breathing and movements, peaceful environment, and focus on balance can send your heart rate down.
Millions use a range of yoga techniques and classes to keep calm and become attuned to the integration of mind and body.
Coloring for adults is also a relatively new and powerful antidote. It can reduce stress significantly. You can enter a more meditative state, focus on creating, experience the moment, and allow your brain to rest and restore.
