Managing Stress: Week 5
movement for stress relief
Welcome to Week Five: Movement
When stress allows excess energy to build up, movement is a great way to expel it! For me, walking does the trick. Being an avid walker allows me to clear my mind, commune with God, and take care of my body. It is truly a body/mind/spirit practice that I take part in daily. If you are not into walking, there are plenty of other activities that you can do. Swimming, yoga, group fitness classes, even playing with your kids and grandkids can help decrease stress levels.
This Week’s Stress Management Technique: Do something physical!
Action Item: For at least 30-minutes a day, do sort of physical exercise. This can include walking, gardening, jogging…it’s your choice! Write down your experiences in your journal to keep track of your progress.
Next week…we’ll recap the previous weeks and I’ll provide additional tips and resources!
See you then!
