4 Ways to Support Your Body During Stress
#1 Get Enough Sleep
Sleep is super important, and it’s even more important during times where we are experiencing higher levels of stress. During sleep, the body rests, restores, and not getting enough sleep can make stress worse.
So, try to prioritize sleep even if it means getting to bed a half-hour earlier and working your way up to getting that solid 7-8 hours each night.
#2 Try Adaptogens
Adaptogenic herbs are great for helping support our stress response. They can help restore a level of balance, helping you feel a bit more calm and centered. You may even notice an increase in energy or productivity.
#3 Stay Present
Staying in the present moment is a great way to help ease anxious thoughts about what’s to come. Try to stay as present as possible, especially when you feel your mind wandering.
When you feel overwhelmed or anxious, take a few deep breaths and recenter, focusing only on the present moment. Using this valuable practice of mindfulness can be a powerful tool during times of stress.
#4 Support Your Immune System
