Suggestions to help you relax
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Rushing through your day can trigger or worsen stress, but slowing down and breathing deeply can help you get through what's challenging you.
The American Heart Association suggests:
- When you're stressed out, give yourself space and time. Step away to take a short walk, take deep breaths and let your tension ease.
- Count to 10 and take deep breaths before responding to a situation that has made you feel angry.
- Think of ways to prevent stressful situations before they happen. Prepare to leave a few minutes early to avoid stressing about being late, or skip the most hectic route so you're not anxious while driving.
- Step back, relax and look objectively at a stressful situation.
