      Stress Release Via Personal Care

      If you notice a greater deal of stress at home or work, or
      any other place for that matter, try to learn helpful ways to
      talk about conflicts and reduce the stress.

      Take notice of your everyday actions and activities to see
      what, if anything you can modify in order to make your life
      simpler and relieve your feelings of stress.

      Simple things like avoiding high traffic areas and times of
      the day, assigning certain household chores and other
      responsibilities to other members of your family, carpooling
      your kids to school and other activities, with their friends
      parents, etc. can have a very positive affect on relieving
      chronic stress and making your life easier over-all.

      You will notice that some of the situations that cause stress
      will turn out to be beyond your control; stress is just a side
      effect of it.

      If both your family and friends support you (which they
      should), it will make it much easier to handle. Try to spend
      more time around people who make you feel better about
      yourself.

      And just as important, avoid those people who time and
      again leave you feeling distressed, worn out or
      drained.

      Find some time every day to relax. You'll be able to recover
      from the stress of the day.

      In addition, there are certain relaxation methods that can
      help you relieve the effects of stress:

      Meditation, tightening and loosening each muscle group in
      your body one after another;

      Closing your eyes and visualizing a soothing scene, and
      listening to peaceful music;

      Sit quietly and breath slowly and uniformly. Close your eyes
      and inhale and exhale slowly through your nose. Pause for 2
      seconds after you exhale and repeat until you feel the stress
      has lessened;

      Here are just some ways exercise helps with stress:

      Exercise may help to cause positive changes in the brain by
      releasing serotonin contributing to feeling relaxed and
      satisfied and increase alpha-wave activity in the brain
      producing a calming effect;

      Exercise can help to get your mind off negative, stressful
      thoughts. Most forms of physical activity and exercise in
      general require good concentration helping respect.

      Exercising at a gym, at home or doing activities outside will
      present an opportunity to work out any negative feelings
      that cause you stress or simply clear your mind and think
      about nothing at all;

      Working out with someone helps to provide you with the
      pleasure of companionship and prevents you from feeling
      lonely.

      Exercise helps you feel vigilant and invigorated helping to
      dramatically reduce your feelings of stress;

      Exercise is a stress relief. It can help to ease nagging
      muscle and emotional tension and helps you to have a
      deeper and more relaxing sleep.

      The connection between stress & nutrition;

      One of the many roles nutrition has in helping you combat
      stress rests primarily on it's ability to bolster your immune
      system and replace those nutrients that your body uses in
      greater amounts during negative situations.

      Women who suffer constantly are commonly deficient in
      magnesium. This deficiency can result in anxiety, fear and
      in extreme cases hallucinations.

      The thymus gland needs an anti stress vitamin called
      pantothenic acid. Women need other B vitamins for proper
      functioning of the nervous system.

      A woman's need for vitamin C increases dramatically under
      stress. You should be taking a minimum of 500 mg of time
      released vitamin C per day.

      If you're under a tremendous amount of stress you will
      need much more than this each day.

      Zinc will protect your cells from free radical damage.

      In order to ensure that your receiving all of the vitamins
      and minerals that you need each day you must take a high-
      quality multivitamin supplement; this isn't an option!

      You must also ensure that you are eating a well balanced
      diet consisting of an ample amount of protein carbohydrates
      with some fats.

      Also, you must ensure that your body is being fed
      consistently. This means you must eat 4 to 6 small well-
      balanced meals each day.

      Sugar and other starches can create an even bigger drain
      on your body's levels of vitamin C and the B vitamins.

      You should try to eliminate or restrict your consumption of
      these substances.

      Make a concerted effort to take good care of yourself, get
      enough sleep and try to make sure that your diet is
      balanced and consists of a variety of nutritious foods.

      The more you can recognize the cause of your stress and
      make modifications to eliminate or reduce stress, the better
      you'll begin to feel.

      You really can eliminate your stress problem immediately,
      and forever!
