Take a minute to refocus

Constant stress can wear out your patience, responsiveness, and physical health. If you're overstressed, you might suffer from emotional irritability, a lack of mental sharpness, and headaches.  Chronic stress can also cause you to gain weight.

When your mind and emotions are rested and balanced, you can handle stressful situations more effectively. Additionally, managing your stress over the long term can decrease your risks of developing serious conditions, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and depression.

Your stress could stem from personal, social, or professional concerns. While you might not be able to immediately change your stressful situations or reduce the amount of stress you experience on a daily basis, you can focus on staying physically healthy. Make sure to do the following:

Stress can cause you to neglect your physical health and wellness, which can place you in a downward spiral as your physical needs aren't met and your condition declines. When you get enough sleep and exercise and are powered by healthy foods eaten regularly, you’ll be better able to manage stress-inducing situations that come your way.
