Chronic Stress Getting You Down? Here are some ways to manage things better.
We have all been living under chronic stress for the past year, regardless of whether your work life "changed", if your house was too empty (or too full), if you agreed with how things were handled or not. Too many people like to just throw out meaningless statements like, "manage your stress better", or "try to avoid what is making you stressed". Well, if it was that simple, then it would be that simple. In reality, chronic stress takes a massive toll on your body- migraines, neck and back pain, insomnia, and high blood pressure are often related to high stress. So when that happens, what is the best thing to do?
The answer should be clear. Massage is a great way to alleviate the physical symptoms of psychological stress. After a massage, most report the ability to breath easier, feel more relaxed and in less pain and their heart rate drops. Having a massage already scheduled before you hit the proverbial wall is even better, since we all know that making a phone call day off to get an appointment is a rare possibility. No one wants to be told that when they are stressed, they still have to wait 2-3 weeks before they can do something to help themselves. Schedule your next session today, you will be so greatful that you did.
