I have talked about Stress Management a couple days ago.  But today, I am going to cover some other things. As you may know stress doesn’t always have to mean having to take medications to feel at ease. There are also natural remedies and preventive measures that you can take to rid yourself of stress. Here are a few of them:

  • Physical Activity

Being physically active increases the amount of norepinephrine, a substance that can help our body and brain deal with stress more effectively. Physical activity also helps loosen up muscles and prevent strains, stiff neck and other things that may cause stress. Exercising also helps release endorphins or happy hormones.

  • Avoid Too Much Caffeine

For some people, caffeine may be a part of their daily routine. However, caffeine also makes you hyped up and can make you feel quite uptight. People who drink too much caffeine are more anxious than those who don’t. Opt for teas and other non-caffeinated beverages instead.

  • Herbs

This can help your body cope up with stress way better.

  • Massage

A good massage can help loosen up your whole body and can take your mind off things that cause stress. It will help your body relax and be able to cope with stress better in the future. You can also make use of candles and aromatherapy oils which have calming effects.

Stress Management: 4 Strategies You Deal With That Properly

How is stress beneficial?

Are you kidding? Let me explain on this. You see, stress is a “double edged sword” when it comes to brain health, this feature makes stress management very important. The kind of stress you experience in daily life like while preparing for exams, facing the deadlines of an important task and narrow escape during an accident etc. can actually help improve the learning and problem solving abilities of our brain.

Brain, like all other natural things, has the ability to adapt to the changing environment. So, when you face any threat, danger or stressful condition then human brain starts to function at a much faster rate to come to a logical solution to the problem.

During stress conditions, human brain releases a hormone called “glucocorticoids”. This hormone increases the supply of nutrients to brain and help it work in an efficient way.

Stress also helps you remember important events of your life. For example if you have been in a road side accident then you would remember that event vividly as compared to other activities performed on that particular day. So, stress helps in the consolidation of memory as well.

How is stress harmful?

Management of stress is necessary because there are more harmful effects of stress on brain health as compared to its beneficial effects. During the periods of chronic and repeated stress, human brain cannot control the levels of “glucocorticoids” produced in the body. The uncontrolled production of this hormone starts to affect the memory and behavior control centers of brain.

It makes a person agitated, angry, with impaired learning and problem solving skills, restless, delusional and it makes difficult for him to concentrate on the give task.

How to manage stress?
