These past few years have been stressful as hell.
According to Stress.org, mental health statistics have worsened these past few years.
We have all been feeling the tension and the stress from all the craziness of politics, conflicts, and inflation.
As you may know, large bouts of stress can lead to depression, anxiety, or worse. These can be a result of prolonged levels of stress or an extremely stressful event we encounter in our lives.
For others, too little stress or too much comfort in our lives can make us directionless and depressed from an existential perspective.
In this case, we introduce positive stressors in our lives. This is a topic for another day.
While some of the stressors we encounter are out of our control, the one thing we have a lot of control over is personal health.
Regardless of external things that are happening around us, your physical and mental health should always be prioritized.
Your own personal health is the foundation of everything: how we think, how we feel, and how we act.
Most of the Mood Lifters I help on their exercise and mental health journey come to me with the desire to improve their personal health, because they know that they can improve upon it.
They also realize that, as a result of frequent exercise, quality nutrition, and better sleep hygiene practices, their stress levels can be managed or reduced.
Understanding stress is very important to keep our mood and well-being in check.
So in this post, we are going to cover stress and recovery, and how we can work towards taking some control of stressors in our lives.
To do whatever little things we can to manage our health in this more chaotic world.
So with that, Mood Lifter, let’s get after this.
