Stress

According to the American Institute of Stress, stress levels are on the rise and have been linked with higher incidence in heart attack, hypertension, and other disorders. In the workplace, stress levels attribute to higher absenteeism, loss of productivity, increased employee turnover, and increases in neck and back pain. So how do we improve stress levels?

The key to reducing stress is to prevent it. Stress is different for each person and the techniques used to manage stress are as varied as the sources of stress. Here are some ideas for managing stressors:

  • Deep Breathing techniques
  • Guided Imagery
  • Exercise
  • Social outlets
  • Get adequate sleep
  • Reduce caffeine
  • Eat a balanced diet free from excess

Whether your stressor is related to finances, weather, job, family, or something entirely different, it is important that each person learns to manage their stressors effectively. For additional resources, see Management Tips on the American Institute of Stress website.
