3 Ways To Stay Healthy By Minimizing Stress From The Orthopedic Doctors At IMUA Orthopedics Sports & Health LLC., Honolulu, Hawaii

Stress doesn’t just affect your mind negatively; it can have negative affects on your body as well. As much as people try to avoid it, it seems stress often takes over anyway. Stress can be toxic, increasing the risk of all chronic diseases and reducing quality of life. It’s vital to create a lifestyle that helps manage stress, rather than pretend it does not exist. 

Here are three simple ways to stay healthy and minimize everyday stress from the orthopedic doctors at IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health.

Cut Out Processed Foods

Processed foods tend to lack nutritional value. Filling your body with empty calories and chemicals is cause for nutritional stress. Replacing these foods with healthy whole foods will make you feel more awake and aware, and your body won’t have to work as hard (or stress) to keep you going throughout the day!

Exercise

Try focusing on shorter bursts of exercise, rather than long periods of aerobics. Brisk walks, quick jogs, interval training, or yoga can provide you and your body with some serious stress relief.

Laugh!

Everyone knows the cliché—laughter is the best medicine. In this case, it is absolutely, 100% true. It’s near impossible to feel any stress at all when you are laughing. It simply does the body good, and makes us happy. Choose to spend time with people who make you laugh, and engage in activities that make you laugh.

Choose to minimize stress for the benefit of your body and mind. If you’re looking for other outlets for stress, consider wellness coaching.
