In this modern era- there is one silent killer that brings about more dis-ease, death, and dsyfunction than anything else- and no it is not Chuck Norris. This something is called stress. In fact, there are two types of stress; distress, and eustress. Of course you have experienced the type of stress where you are overcome with anticipation and excitement. This is called eustress; as implied in the prefix of the word- meaning euphoria. Eustress is good for you. However, in this post I am going to be discussing distress. Distress can be highly damaging if not dealt with effectively. While elimination of stress is unrealistic, management of it is attainable and realistic. Ways in which you can begin your new path toward stress reduction have been outlined below.

1.) Exercise:  Possibly one of the most important forms of stress reduction and overall ways to promote longevity, good health, and liveliness. Exercise is a highly effective method in eliminating stress because it simultaneously manages emotional stress and tension. Exercise also aids in relaxation and improves sleep.

2.) Manage Your Time: Especially in today's world, the number one thing that people claim to need more of is time. However, if you look at their lives closely most people tend to waste time or put it to other things rather than what they prioritize in life. Thus, managing your time is one of the greatest ways to reduce stress, and ironically it also gives you more of it.

3.)Breathe Deep:  Start breathing deep! This can be done as a daily exercise and before a stressful event. When you have a few minutes, try a relaxation technique either using visualization or meditation. Look into exercises that specifically focus on breath such as yoga, bioenergetics or meditation.

As you can see, stress reduction does not have to be something that takes time from your day or slows you down. By using these techniques; or ones similar, you can add productivity, time, and energy to your life.
