In the world that we live in, there are many things that can cause us stress. Specially right now, we are in the middle of a pandemic. Many of us are facing sudden changes in our personal, social, and professional lives. We are constantly exposed to alarming news, videos, and images. On top of this, we still have our day to day lives to think about. With so much going on, it's more important than ever to prioritize reducing our stress levels.
Why reducing stress is important:
When we are in a constant state of stress (chronic stress), we’re not in a place to function well or make good decisions. Chronic stress negatively impacts our physical health, mental health, quality of life, and how constructively we are able to deal with challenging situations. It impacts how well we show up in our day to day lives and for the people around us. Therefore, no matter the situation, it's essential to keep our stress levels low. This will allow us to take back control so that we can create the best possible outcomes during difficult times.
