Hello to all of you. These past few weeks have been very difficult for some of the people who I love and so I figured that now would be a good time to repost an article from last year on stress and how to deal with it.  Although it will take you a bit of time to read, I think that it's well worth it. Take care of yourself today, please. Read on and figure out a few coping mechanisms that will help you live a more successful life.

Get moving, connect to others, engage your senses, learn to relax, eat a health diet, and get your rest.

Stress isn’t always bad. In small doses, it can help you perform under pressure and motivate you to do your best. But when you’re constantly running in emergency mode, your mind and body pay the price. If you frequently find yourself feeling frazzled and overwhelmed, it’s time to take action to bring your nervous system back into balance. You can protect yourself — and improve how you think and feel — by learning how to recognize the signs and symptoms of chronic stress and taking steps to reduce its harmful effects.
