You’re doing great, but don’t stop now!
You’re showing a few signs of stress but overall doing ok. We have to remember that feeling “stressed out” is only one of the many ways that stress can manifest in our body.
Things like low energy, poor sleep, headaches and mood swings can often be traced back to stress.
A little bit of stress is not necessarily a bad thing but the truth is most people have more stress than they need. No matter how good you may be feeling today, you can always find ways to optimize your mental health and happiness.
Interested in improving your stress score? Guess what? There are plenty of ways even you can improve, starting now. Read my tips below to find out more.
Tips for improving your stress score:
- Start a meditation practice.
If you’ve never meditated before you can begin by using a guided meditation to help you learn the basics. Meditate for just a little bit each day to see big changes to your mental health.
You can expect improved focus, sleep and mood just to name a few of the many benefits this practice has to offer.
- Increase movement. If you’re looking for a boost exercise is one of the best mood boosters there is. If hitting the gym doesn’t sound appealing, that’s ok! Try to find ways to incorporate movement that feels good- walking outdoors is a great way to get started.
- Get more sleep. Although stress can contribute to lack of sleep, lack of sleep can also contribute to stress! Make sure your room is completely dark at night and not too hot.
Try relaxing before bed with a screens free activity such as reading a book or a bedtime meditation. Sleep is like a magic bullet for your health, and by focusing on sleep you might be surprised at the positive difference it will make for your health!
