3 Ways to Manage Stress So It Isn’t Detrimental to Your Long-Term Health:
- Just Breathe the DDB Way (Deep Diaphragmatic Breathing): When you breathe deeply, you renew your energy, improve your sleep and de-stress your body on the cellular level; all while helping to reset your metabolism. Take 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes in the evening to focus on breathing the “DDB” way and experience the internal power source you have inside. It will be life changing.
- Take Fear from Foe to Friend in 4 Steps – Turn your negative thoughts into positive action. When you can befriend your fears, you will experience greater resilience through life’s challenges, along with increased joy and excitement in your career, family, and relationships. You only need to Recognize, Recast, Renew and then Bask in the Positive lessons learned.
- Sleep Baby Sleep: By getting enough sleep, you allow your body to experience its natural circadian rhythm, while eliminating cellular waste products and decreasing levels of fat producing (Ghrelin) and stress enhancing (Cortisol) hormones. When you get 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night, be prepared to experience an enhanced emotional and physical state of health.
