We live in a world overrun by stress. It is the cause of all kinds of illnesses. According to the American Psychological Association, chronic stress is linked to the six leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver and suicide. In this sense, proper stress management is one of the key factors leading to a happy and successful life. Here are some ways to manage your stress.
Exercise can help people relieve stress hormones and stimulate the production of endorphins. It also helps people enjoy a sound sleep. Music has a positive effect on brain and body. By listening to music, people can reduce blood pressure and cortisol. Furthermore, people can take a break by spending time with friends and family. Drinking tea or lighting candles can be helpful. Furthermore, people can take some time to meditate or write down their thoughts to handle personal stress.
