Stress and anxiety are a common problem in today’s society. Most of us will experience stress at some point in our lives – it is very difficult to escape in a world where so much is going on around us. It is easy to get caught up in worrying about work, bills, self-image and the state of the world. Having a full-time job can be detrimental to your mental health since it takes up so much of-of the week, leaving almost no time to take stock of things and relax.

Thankfully, there are a number of ways to combat stress, and by implementing certain minor changes in your life you can majorly improve your sense of calm and personal well-being.

Three Ways To Regain Health

The art of meditation has existed for thousands of years as an integral part of various religions and cultures. It is a useful way to clear one’s mind, and research has shown that meditation can reduce the likelihood of health issues such as high blood pressure, anxiety and depression.

Meditation exists in different forms but the key is focusing one’s mind. You can experience a simple form of meditation by simply closing your eyes, relaxing your body and focusing on one particular thing, such as your breathing, or you can picture a certain object or landscape using your imagination.

If you want to experience more advanced forms of meditation like Yoga or Tai Chi you can visit a meditation retreat centre like Poulstone Court which is located within the beautiful Herefordshire countryside.

Exercise

Getting your heart rate up for a few minutes each day can do a world of good in terms of vanquishing stress. The minimum amount you should aim for is around 20-30 minutes a day, at least three times a week.

Eating Well

Always remember to make time for breakfast, as it is the most important meal of the day. Coming into work on a satisfied stomach will help you cope with stressful, difficult situations. Running on empty can lead to anxiety and also keep you feeling excessively hungry throughout the day. Be sure to eat three meals a day, including breakfast, and try to keep the correct balance of protein, carbohydrates, fruit and vegetables.

You should allow yourself to eat mood-boosting foods such as biscuits, crisps and ice cream when you’re feeling particularly down. Consuming food rich in carbohydrates is known to boost levels of serotonin – a chemical compound which boosts feelings of happiness and satisfaction. However, be sure to limit your consumption of these foods since in large quantities they can lead to diabetes and heart disease.
