4 Tips From Wellness Coaches For Managing Your Stress, Honolulu, Hawaii

Stress is an inevitable part of life. Between balancing work, family, and maintaining a household, it is normal to feel anxious or overwhelmed at times. However, uncontrollable stress can be detrimental to your health and is linked to weight gain, a weakened immune system, and increased risk of heart attack or stroke. The doctors at IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health in Honolulu, HI, specialize in nutrition and sports medicine. As part of their holistic care, they also offer wellness coaching to all of their patients.

Listed below are some of the stress management tips recommended by the specialists at IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health:

  • wellness coachingPractice Yoga & Meditation: Yoga and meditation practices have been used for centuries as a way to calm the body and mind and find inner peace. By taking just a few moments to practice each day, you can learn valuable breathing techniques to help you relax whenever you feel overwhelmed.
  • Exercise Regularly: Exercising at a moderate pace for at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week can help to boost your body’s production of endorphins. Endorphins are a naturally occurring neurochemical that can improve your mood and help you feel more relaxed.
  • Get Enough Sleep: If you lead a busy life, finding seven to nine hours to sleep each night may seem impossible. However, making sleep a priority is essential for combating stress. Sleep allows your body to regenerate and your mind to rest, so you’re prepared to handle the challenges of the following day.
  • Take Time For Activities You Enjoy: Whether it’s going dancing with friends on the weekends, playing on a sports team, or even just relaxing with a book, finding an activity that you do for enjoyment is important for managing stress. This “me time” offers you a break from your daily stressors, so you can decompress and avoid feeling overwhelmed.

By following these wellness coaching tips, you can reduce your current stress levels and become more adept at handling stress in the future.
