It might sound strange but putting phys-ical stress on your body through exer-cise can help relieve mental stress. This is achieved by reducing cortisol levels and by releasing endorphins. Try to find an activity you enjoy, such as walking, dancing or yoga. • Practice relaxation techniques: Yoga, meditation and deep breathing, help your body relax and make you feel calm. Aromatic therapy is also a form of relaxation. Try adding a few drops of essential oils to hot water and inhale. Relaxing scents such as chamomile and lavender used in diffusion help invoke a calm and relaxed mood. A wide range of essential oils and blends are available at Flamingo Pharmacy. • A good night’s rest helps in lessen-ing stress levels. Sleep is the body’s nat-ural way of restoring and rejuvenating itself. If you are having trouble sleeping for the generally recommended seven to eight hours per night, natural supple-ments such as melatonin and valerian might help as they act as mild sedatives. Remember to consult a doctor or phar-macist as some supplements can inter-act with specific medications or may not be suitable if you have specific health conditions. • You do not have to face it alone! An active support group is a fantastic way of handling stress. Find that one, great, sympathetic friend to lend an ear or show support. Spending time with a loved one can drastically alleviate stress. We advise you to seek medical help for chronic stress, as this can lead to other health issues. • Make time for yourself. Find a bal-ance to maintain your commitments as well as carving out time for yourself. Personal time helps you to rejuvenate and start over. This will lead to a healthi-er and happier you.
