The mind and body absorb stress like a sponge. The good news is that stress management can be learned. It may feel unnatural at first to take a moment to relax when feeling stressed. Having a variety of stress management strategies to implement, based on your available energy level can be a helpful skill set - daily (breathing or stretching), weekly (scheduled exercise), or monthly (mini day vacation). No need to wait until you are stressed-out to take care of yourself. Managing your stress levels actively versus reactively can foster increased resilience. Countering the vicious stress loop is worth the effort and the payoff is usually immediate.
