Healthy Ways to Deal with Stress

Hi all! Another week has flown by. I hope everyone is enjoying May so far and looking forward to summer! Today I want to address a topic that affects us all. Stress. Whether in your day-to-day life or due to a legal claim/issue, stress can turn our world upside down and make us feel like we have lost control.

Here are some tips and tricks to deal with and overcome stress:

1. Get moving! You don’t have to be a super athlete or sign up for a marathon, but a walk in the sun, swimming at the beach, or a bike ride around the neighborhood can help release built-up tension. Plus, fresh air is always a bonus!

2. Take one thing at a time. You may be bombarded from all sides with all kinds of stress, but in order for you to prioritize and not become completely overwhelmed you need to separate all of your stressors and attack them one at a time. That way, you can check them off your list and devote your full attention to successfully conquering the next hurdle that life throws your way.

3. Take breaks from the news and social media. In a world of instant gratification and one horrific news story after another, one of the best things that you can do for yourself is to step back, take a break, and refocus. The world will go on without you scrolling Twitter or Tik Tok for countless hours every day, and, you may just realize how unimportant social media can be when there are real-life situations that need addressing.

4. Talk to others. If therapy is your thing, then sign up with or talk to a therapist! If it’s not, talk to a friend, family member, or close confidante who will really take the time to listen to your concerns and help you work toward a solution. Ultimately, it is always better to get those feelings and emotions out instead of internalizing them.

5. Identify your stress signals. Figure out what makes your heart start to race or your fists to clench. Once you realize these triggers, you’ll be able to better prepare for them the next time around as well as learn how to calm yourself down before becoming so overwhelmed that you feel like you have lost control.

6. Create a list or journal. Sometimes we just need to do a brain dump. Whether that is making a to-do list so that accomplishing all that is stressing you out seems more manageable or, journaling your thoughts and feelings, putting words to paper will help calm you down and prioritize what needs to be done to alleviate stress in your day.

I hope that today’s blog offered some solutions and new ideas to tackle any stressful situation that life throws your way. Whether it be from a legal issue or life in general, know that you are not alone and that there are ways for you to deal with whatever stress may arise in your life. If
