Life is hard. Always throwing a curveball just when you thought you had things under control. While stress is inevitable in any red-blooded human’s life, the doctors at IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health in Honolulu, HI, are experts in wellness coaching, and want to share with you a few easy ways to relieve some of that pressure.
- Nutrition: You are what you eat. This isn’t about losing weight or being skinny; the quality of the food you eat directly affects your mood. Cut out the extremely fatty foods and simple carbohydrates that make your body lethargic. A meal full of fresh foods including lean meats, and fruit, revitalize your body, naturally giving you more energy to tackle the day.
- Get Moving: Exercise is magic for reducing stress. You don’t need to run a 5k, or be a professional yogi, start by turning on music and dancing around your living room! Play a pick-up basketball game, or take a walk around the block. The more you get moving, the more you want to keep moving, and as you feel your endorphins kick in, feelings of tension and anger are kicked out.
- Schedule Fun: Literally schedule time in your day to do something you love. A reward you can look forward while powering through your daily work. It can be as simple as watching your favorite reality show, or Facetiming your friend. Life can’t be all work and no play. Learn to say “no” to things that aren’t imperative, and create time for things that make you happy.
