All Under Control

 

You’ve got stress under control!

Your score indicates an average level of stress, which means that your lifestyle allows you to deal with stress in a controlled, non-aggressive way. However, you may still get overwhelmed at times.

 

Here are some practical tips to help you to deal better with stress:

 

1) Avoid stimulants

Cutting back on smoking, drinking and eating sugary foods in excess can reduce your stress levels.

 

2) Get More Sleep

It is so important to get on average 7 or 8 hours of sleep every night.

 

3) Try a Breathing Exercise

 

  • Sit or stand in a relaxed position

  • Slowly inhale through your nose, counting to five

  • Let the air out through your mouth, counting to eight

  • Repeat several times

  • As you breathe, let your abdomen expand outward, rather than raising your shoulders. This is a more relaxed and natural way to breathe, and helps your lungs fill themselves fully with fresh air

  • You can do this just a few times to release tension, or for several minutes as a form of meditation

  • If you like, you can make your throat tighter as you exhale so the air comes out like a whisper. This type of breathing is used in some forms of yoga and can add additional tension relief.
