5 Tips to Manage Stress
TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - An excessive amount of stress could cause serious illness and other mental problems. The condition triggers anxiety, lack of control, frustration, and problems responding to stimulation.
There are several ways to nip stress in the bud. Citing WebMD, below are the five tips to manage your stress:
1. Routine exercises
Exercising is one of the best ways to relax the body and mind, including lightening up your emotions. Medium-intensity exercises such as jogging and swimming are good to help reduce stress.
2. Muscle relaxation
Muscles will tighten when the mind is feeling stressed. Relaxation helps to loosen and freshen the body, such as stretching, massage, hot shower, and a good night's sleep.
3. Control the diet pattern
A healthy and balanced diet pattern will help you regulate your emotions. When the body is healthy, the mind will follow, and vice versa. Consume healthy food with a combination of vegetables, fruit, nuts, and fat-free protein to help energize yourself.
4. Search for hobbies
Always having something to do every day will make you feel better and help reduce stress. For example, spending around 15 to 20 minutes to enjoy a hobby such as reading or watching movies will help you manage your stress better.
5. Communicate with others
Quoted from the Mayo Clinic website, conversing with people you trust will heighten the sense of being supported. The feeling of belonging in a workplace, organization, or other group activities is necessary to get over difficult times.
