June 24, 2015

 

Everyone experiences stress at times. Stress at work, at home, or whatever you are going through.

 

There is emerging evidence that positive mental health is associated with improved health outcomes. Getting enough sleep is important for overall health, including mental health. It impacts how you feel and perform during the day. Adults need 7- 8 hours of sleep each night. Find healthy ways to cope with stress. Keep your mind and body healthy. 

 

 

Keep Moving- Health and Wellness

Physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health and it has many health benefits including lowering your risk for diabetes and heart disease the leading cause of death. Adults should do at least 2 hours and 30 minutes each week of aerobic physical activity that requires moderate effort. Get it in for at least 10 minutes at a time.

Healthy Ways to Cope with Stress

Engaging in healthy activities and getting the right care and support can put problems in perspective and help stressful feelings subside in a few days or weeks. Some tips for beginning to feel better are:

  • Take care of yourself.

    • Eat healthy, well-balanced meals

    • Exercise on a regular basis

    • Get plenty of sleep

    • Give yourself a break if you feel stressed out

  • Talk to others. Share your problems and how you are feeling and coping with a parent, friend, counselor, doctor, or pastor.

  • Avoid drugs and alcohol. Drugs and alcohol may seem to help with the stress. In the long run, they create additional problems and increase the stress you are already feeling.

  • Take a break. If your stress is caused by a national or local event, take breaks from listening to the news stories, which can increase your stress.

Recognize when you need more help. If problems continue or you are thinking about suicide, talk to a psychologist, social worker, or professional counselor.

 

Center for Health Services encourages everyone to make their health a priority. Take these steps to live a safer and healthier life! For more information contact us.
