Health Tip: Suggestions to Manage Stress

-- Stress can have a significant impact on your physical and emotional health.

The Cleveland Clinic offers this advice on how to keep stress under control:

  • Limit alcohol consumption, don't smoke and stick to a healthy diet.
  • Don't take on more than you can handle, and don't be afraid to politely say "no," no matter who's asking.
  • Exercise is a great stress reliever and helps you feel better.
  • Practice relaxation techniques daily.
  • Get organized and take control over your life. Do what you can, and recognize what you can't control.
  • Try to identify and minimize things that cause stress.
  • Be realistic in what you can accomplish, and accept that you don't have to do everything. Remind yourself of what you do well.
