Combatting stress

In our latest email we talked about the impact of stress.


Stress is a normal psychological and physical response to the day-to-day demands of life. The feeling of being overloaded with mental or emotional pressure can soon turn into stress.


While a certain level of stress can be motivational for one person, the same level may overwhelm someone else.


Too much stress causes the body’s defense system – known as “fight-or-flight” – to kick in. The nervous system releases a flood of stress hormones that include adrenaline and cortisol.


Frequent stress however, can cause our immune system to shut down. Right now... given the on-going pandemic, we need our immune system to be in full health. So we've got a list of stress combatting ideas that are easy, quick and suitable for everyone.


Walks

Massage

Baths

Reading

Watching comedies

Meditation

Exercise

Eating healthier


So go on, try a couple. A little walk here and there, swap those chips for veggies and enjoy a pamper session. We guarantee you'll feel better, not only that, you'll be helping yourself.
