The NYC EAP is Concerned About The Health of Employees
People experiencing stress, grief or anxiety often stop caring for some aspect of their well-being. Below is a list of simple actions you can take to stay healthy and function while you cope with difficult situations.
All of us show some signs of stress in our lives. If you have a number of signs, however, you may need to spend some time on learning how to manage your stress. Too much stress can have negative effects on your health. Some tips for managing stress include:
Deal with Your Feelings in a Healthy Way
Remember to Relax
Manage Your Time
Develop Good Health Habits
Exercise regularly. It can help work off some physical stress symptoms, leaving you feeling calm and better able to relax. If you are feeling lethargic, it can help to energize you and clear your mind. Exercise is one of the best things to do to live a healthier and stress-free life. Be sure to consult your physician before starting any exercise program.
Remember that problems can seem much larger under stress. The pressures of dealing with work, family or terror alerts can add to the stress you already feel in your life. Be sure to take care of yourself and manage your stress.
