Today’s question is:

How often do you get stressed?

  • Rarely: I don’t let things bother me
  • Occasionally: I have my moments, but it’s manageable
  • Frequently: I’ve got a lot on my plate
  • Always: I’m a total stress-mess

Little things can make a big difference in managing stress.

And that’s important because stress can have long-term health impacts.

Studies link stress to

  • increased cortisol production in the body
  • lowered immune response
  • feeling anxious
  • feeling sad

What can you do?

  • Start with lifestyle changes including getting 7-8 hours of sleep each night and 2-3 hours a week of exercise
  • Nutrition can play an important role. Natural support includes calcium, magnesium, and ashwagandha
  • Even probiotics are now thought to help.

Meditation – breaks up stress by focusing on the present – reduces worry about things you can’t control.

You can’t control everything that happens to you – but you can control your response.
