Average working women have tons of responsibilities on their plate. Surprisingly, mental stress in women was only discovered recently. It wasn’t until the late 90s that researchers and doctors studied and documented about mental stress and its effects on working women. However, their commendable research has helped millions overcome the daily stress and anxiety issues.
Modern working professionals are interrupted by work, sudden plans and stress over 7 times an hour, and at least 3 hours per day.
Here are 11 easy, working women can manage their stress and anxiety levels.
Listen to Soothing Music
If you’re feeling drained, take a break and put on some relaxing music to keep yourself calm.
With Beethoven symphony 9 playing in the background, you’re bound to forget about all your problems and fall into a deep peaceful sleep.
Playing soothing music effects not only your mind but also your body. It lowers blood pressure and reduces cortisol – a hormone that controls your stress levels. We also recommend sounds that have the same effect as any soothing tune.
Talk to a Friend
When you feel stress is taking the most of you, call a friend who makes you feel secure and calm. A good relationship with your friends and family helps in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Having someone to talk to in your good times and bad times is a blessing you should cherish.
They will talk you through the tough situation and open your eyes to a clearer perspective. Sometimes we cannot see the other side of the story and need someone else to guide us and lead us out of the stress. It is fine to ask help from your friends in time of need. They would be more than glad to offer a helping hand.
Stress levels and eating habits are directly related. When we’re too occupied by negative emotions, we often deprive ourselves of food or destroy our body by eating too processed food and junk.
To avoid eating processed food, sugary items, and junk snacks, plan your meals beforehand and stick to the list. Fresh fruits, vegetables, and fish, rich in omega-3 fatty acids reduce stress levels.
