Coffee Talk: Healthy Ways to Manage Stress

Your to-do list seems never ending and you find yourself spending more late nights in the office. The growing pile of laundry that’s threatening to overtake your closet and the dirty dishes stacked precariously high in the sink induce anxiety every time you rush past on your way out the door. From the workplace, your home, and even in relationships with others, stress can easily edge its way into all aspects of your life. Though stress is natural and often unavoidable, it’s essential to manage it in a constructive manner to prevent it from negatively impacting your wellbeing.

During stressful times, it’s easy to turn to a glass of wine or chocolate but there are healthier ways to cope with stress. Take a 15 minute break to clear your mind or sweat out tension with a tough workout. Spending time outdoors with your furry friend or an encouraging conversation with a trusted friend can do wonders.
