STRESS BUSTERS THAT WORK! DONT LET LIFE WORK YOU!

Posted on January 16, 2014 at 6:05 PM


STRESS BUSTERS THAT WORK!  DONT LET LIFE WORK YOU!

Everyone knows that when the Incredible Hulk feels stress, he turns into a raging, green monster. But when you worry about money, work, relationships, family responsibilities or health problems, you're more likely to get headaches, gut troubles and/or fatigue, as well as see flares of anger and impatience -- all symptoms of day-in, day-out unresolved stress.

 

And those physical responses come with a pretty stiff price tag: Half of all deaths in folks younger than 65 are stress-related.

 

So if you're stressed (about 25 percent of you report dealing with extreme stress), sit down, take a deep breath and try SOME IMPORTANT stress-reduction techniques.

1. Go to ZUMBA W/ BRENDA!


2. Put stress-reducing foods on your plate. Certain foods reduce your levels of the stress hormone cortisol, and that will help protect your cardiovascular system and nerves.

 

Calming foods include: spinach, for its cortisol-controlling magnesium; white beans, barley, mackerel and cod, for their phosphatidylserine, a component of cell membranes that can calm nerves and help you sleep; citrus fruit's vitamin C helps slow cortisol production; and salmon and ocean trout are packed with inflammation-quelling DHA omega-3s that may reduce stressed-out feelings.

 


3. Give yourself a massage.

Highly suggested to resaerch  Ayurvedic self-massage for its immune-modulating, pleasure-producing benefits that can reduce anxiety, tummy troubles, headaches, insomnia, even TMJ. After you get out of the shower, using a light oil, rub each body part from the top of your head to your toes with a firm, gentle, circular motion. You also can use roller-bars, hand-held massage sprayers and rolling balls on legs, back and feet.

Hope you have enjoyed the information provided and come reduce your stress with me in my next class or participate with me in Carnival at Mission Cultural Center For Latino Arts Febuary 1st  at 3:15 in SF.


PEACE OUT
