Stress Management Tips
Practice these simple tips from California Surgeon General’s Handbook: Stress Relief During COVID-19 to protect your health and manage your stress response.
Secure, stable, and nurturing relationships can protect our brains and bodies from the harmful effects of stress and adversity. Stay in touch with mentors, friends and family in person or via phone and video chat, including schools and community or faith-based organizations.
Commit to 60 minutes of body movement — not necessarily all at once — every day. Whatever activity you choose, get your body moving and your heart rate up to release stress.
Get enough, high-quality sleep by establishing a sleep schedule and routine, creating a comfortable, distraction-free environment, and avoiding electronic devices and caffeine too late in the day.
Balanced nutrition and hydration
Good nutrition can help fight stress. This means regular meal times, a reduction in refined carbohydrates, foods high in fat and sugar, and a reduction in alcohol consumption.
mental health care
Engage in mental health care that can help lower stress hormones and improve health. This could minimize consumption of news and other media that may upset or contact a mental health professional.
Practice mindfulness, such as meditation, yoga, or prayer for 20 minutes, twice a day. Mindfulness can help strengthen brain pathways that actively buffer the stress response, helping you more easily regulate your stress response.
