Stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension. It can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry or nervous.
It is your body's reaction to a challenge. Lengthy exposure to stress can lead to mental health issues. While no one can avoid all stress, there are ways we can cope with them to improve our productivity:
You don't have to go to the gym or follow an intense workout routine. A short walk or stretch can simply do the trick. Aerobic exercise has been proven to release endorphins, which is a substance that helps you feel better and maintain a positive attitude.
Talk about it with a trusted friend
Calling a friend or even a family member can go a long way. A reassuring voice can surely help put everything into perspective.
Ensure you have proper sleep
Yes, stress can cause sleepless nights. On the other hand, not sleeping will make the situation worse. Give yourself time to relax and sleep for at least 7 hours.
Listen to soothing music
Playing music you like has a positive effect on your brain and body. It also lowers pressure and reduces the hormone linked to stress.
Chewing gum promotes blood flow to your brain. A recent study also found that stress relief was greatest when people chewed more strongly.
