Stress Relief!

April is Stress Awareness month. With everything going on in our busy lives, sometimes stress can get the best of us. Relieve your stress through meditation, exercise, music, or even through cooking, crafting or spending time with an old friend. Take 10-20 minutes out of your day and do something for your health!

Meditation involves consciously relaxing your body and concentrating your thoughts away from problems that are causing you stress for a sustained period. This directs your body to relax and clear away stress hormones that may have built up. These stress hormones, called cortisol increases inflammatory and chronic illnesses such as heart disease, arthritis, and auto-immune conditions. Here are some simple steps for meditating:

- Sit quietly and comfortably.

- Close your eyes.

- Start by relaxing the muscles of your feet and slowly relax the rest of your muscles.

- Focus your attention on your breathing, a sound, or a mental image.

- Breathe in deeply and release your breath. Counting your breaths helps occupy your mind and avoid distraction.
