6 ways to manage stress
Stress is very common in everyday life, but it can often be managed with a few simple methods.
Write it down
Putting pen to paper can help solidify your thoughts and bring clarity to what is causing you stress. This makes it easier to prioritize and decide when to say “no.”
Walk it out
Walking regularly is a great way to manage stress. After a while, you may feel like you have extra energy to do more physical activities.
Focusing on the here and now can help you escape from life’s stressors. Look for activities or hobbies that require your undivided attention.
Relax and release
Sometimes we carry stress in physical ways. Try relaxing your body with techniques like breathing exercises, aromatherapy, yoga, or muscle relaxation.
Free your feelings
Bottling up emotions gives them more power. It can help to talk with someone you trust, or even laugh, cry, and express anger when you need to.
Explore your options
If you’re experiencing challenges that aren't manageable and are impacting your life, your health plan may cover behavioral health services and support.
