The most healthy people I meet seem to normally say that your health is only under your control so why not “Do it yourself?” I am not a medical professional
and I am not able to provide legal advise but here are some ideas to manage stress, tr
a, and grief that I have worked well for me.
Settle anything with work so you can devote time to a variety of objectives that will help your overall health. During this time you will still be working as much as you can but you should inform your management about any stressful event that you will be dealing with for an extended period of time.
Reach out to the people that love you, have positive things to say, and who really want to help you. Do not allow others to manipulate your love and emotions during this time because you need support from the close people who you can trust. Remember to do things for yourself that really show your love for yourself. Express your love for your community and give to others who are in need during this first week as much as you are able.
Find contact information for any old friends that you may have lost touch with and reach out to them. Ask them how they were able to get through a long term stressful event and what really helped. Talk to the friendly people around you and reach out to them.
Make specific time to enjoy things outside of work and the other tasks while dealing with the stress this first week. Even if it for a walk in a new place with your friends it may help you get through a very difficult time.
When you meditate or practice breathing exercises this first week consider that what you do during this stressful time will determine your own outcome.
Consider watching some videos from the experts. Maybe clean up your space, label everything, define, test, analyze, compare. Find out what might be causing your stress. Can you solve anything about it? If so, use this process to reach solutions.
Take your own path and see the way that will work best for your situation. You do not need to follow what everyone tells you to do but instead create a solution that is uniquely yours.
Visit s0me professional comedy shows, talk to funny friends and try to make them laugh, and always smile. They say it is contagious.
- nutrition *Consider supplemental multivitamins and multi minerals as well as additional magnesium.
At the first sign of a long term stressful event consider a daily liquid multi mineral / multi vitamin, magnesium powder, L-glutamine powder, probiotics, Vit-C powder, plenty of filtered water, weekly one day fruit fasts with berries, and plenty of fresh salmon. Consider an additional Omega 3 – 6 – 9 supplement as well as a variety of raw fruits, garlic, broccoli, and vegetables. Fresh ginger tea may also help you with digestion during this stressful time.
Exercise may be the most effect way you can treat stress yourself. Work into your physical fitness carefully and slowly but keep improving in all the types of ways you can and add variety to every work out.
What ways could you improve your personal care this week? Dental hygiene, deodorant, nail care, skin care, hair care, and many other types of personal self care are important to remember each day while dealing with a long term stressful situation. Identify with your cultural norms for self care and focus on what works instead of what is the most expensive.
