Natural Ways To Reduce Your Stress Levels
Do you ever feel that no matter how organized and driven you are, often times there simply aren’t enough hours in the day? Rarely do things ever go according to plan and when they don’t, we feel an extra dose of pressure to get to our meetings on time, pick up the kids, get your training session in, or whatever other commitment you’re stressing over because you have so much going on in your life, and the world around you is also piling it on – bring on a stress reliever!
Stress is not always a negative emotion. There is such a thing as healthy levels of stress and its these kinds of levels that motivate us to meet deadlines and complete tasks.
But it does not take much for those healthy levels to cross over to unhealthy kinds of stress, and that is when we are faced with a nasty list of negative mental, emotional, and physical effects and some healthy stress relievers can at times, come in handy.
Fight Stress with USANA Health Sciences Newest Line of Supplements
USANA Stress Relief
USANA Stress Relief
By using a powerful blend of adaptogens, USANA have created a new product category to help manage mood and alleviate stress.
There are several types of stress that you should know about to identify them early and deal with it before it really begins to take a toll on your life.
This is the most common type of stress for many of us. It is those odd moments that catch us off guard and elevates our stress levels for a brief period. Although this type of stress does not last a prolonged amount of time, a proper response is required so you can properly deal with the situation, whatever it may be. An example of acute stress could be someone cutting you off on the road while driving, or a sudden argument with a loved one.
Chronic stress is when things become a little more stressful and constant at the same time. This type of stress is also very common and if not dealt with properly, can lead to a person opting for temporary and even health-threatening solutions. Chronic stress occurs when the stress factors in a person’s life are so constant, their body does not know how to cope with it or regulate it, and as a result, maintains the consistently high level of stress.
The negative health impact that chronic stress can have on a person is severe and we will cover this a little later in this article.
Unfortunately having your emotions all over the place is another form of stress. This can often occur when a relationship with a loved one or family member(s) are tedious or volatile. This state of stress can have a harder impact on a person’s emotions than the stress one would encounter in the workplace since it is a very personal type of stress and more emotions are involved.
Exhaustion / Physical Stress
Hitting the gym and working hard is great to relieve yourself of stress. But refusing to give your body adequate time to recover will result in your body constantly trying to catch up and get back to 100%. Overtraining is a sure-fire way to subject your body to exhaustion and excess physical stress, leaving you susceptible to injury and even lowered immune defenses.
The Consequences of Un-Managed Stress Levels
Letting elevated run rampant in your daily life will do more than occupy your mind and make you feel like you need more time and space. There are serious negative health impacts you can suffer from that could possibly lead to injury or even death:
- Elevated blood pressure and cortisol production. Increased cortisol leads to inflammation in the body which has been connected to a long list of chronic diseases and lowered immune defenses.
- The risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke are all linked to chronic stress.
- Comfort foods as a response to emotional stress and lead to weight gain, poor self-image, and even more emotional distress/depression.
- Inadequate rest can impact joints and cartilage and lead to severe muscle and ligament injuries.
