A Healthy Lifestyle starts Each Morning!6 Great Ways to Cope with Stress

1.Put On Some Music

Music therapy has been shown to reduce stress and have a positive effect on health.

2.Stretch in the Shower

The hot water will loosen up your muscles, so it’s easier to move and stretch.

3.Eat a Balanced Breakfast

A healthy breakfast in the morning can balance your blood sugar levels and give you the sustenance you need to handle physical and mental stress. Be sure to have plenty of protein and fruit, not just caffeine and empty calories! If you don’t like breakfast, you can split it up into two smaller meals. Eat a hard boiled egg at home and an hour or two later take a break from work and snack on an apple and a handful of raw nuts like pecans or walnuts.

4.Drink Green Tea

Sipping a warm cup of tea is a soothing activity that will help you prepare for the day ahead and feel nurtured.

5.Write in Your Journal

Journaling has many health and stress management benefits, and can also lead to increased self-awareness. Writing once a day can help you feel focused, process negative emotions, and solve problems.

6.Morning Walk

Walking has many health and stress management benefits.

7.Yoga

For a healthy body and peaceful mind, few activities give as much “bang for your buck” as yoga.

 To your vibrant health,
