Stress Management Guide to the Rescue!

Hello everyone,
First let me say, I hope all of you are safe and well. Prayers  for those of you who have lost a family member and/or a friend due to Covid19.   Also, thanks to all the people who are putting their lives on the line every single day for us…. to combat this deadly virus.      As we stay at home and restrict many of our normal activities, I know this is a very stressful time for all.   Learning ways to mitigate stress will help you stay healthy…during this time and as we continue to learn how to live with Covid-19.

Unfortunately, this time is more stressful for some than others. If you carry a lot of stress normally and now due to Covid19, just feel totally overwhelmed with stress, I have what you need.

The other day, I was thinking about how can I be a helpful resource to my community?   So, I came up with the idea to provide to you “stress reducing tips and tools” that will help you better deal with the stress YOU ARE PROBABLY experiencing.  Just like the CDC has asked us to follow certain prevention guidelines to mitigate Covid19, I have put together a resource to help you mitigate stress.



Why it is important to reduce/mitigate stress:

Chronic unresolved stress produces high levels of cortisol. Cortisol is called the “stress hormone” and excess cortisol/stress can lower your body’s immunity and reduce your body’s ability to fight off viruses, germs, and toxins.  Now more than ever, you need a strong immune system.  Additionally, excess, unresolved stress increases inflammation which has been linked to just about every disease and condition you don’t want to get.


Other ways chronic, unresolved stress can impact your health:

  • increased glucose levels. if you are a diabetic, this can make it more difficult to control your diabetes
  • decreased insulin sensitivity, causing diabetes
  • causing weight gain due to increased glucose
  • increased fat storage, especially abdominal fat
  • heartburn,increased acid reflux,
  • weakened muscles
  • slow would healing
  • increased glucose levels. if you are a diabetic, this can make it more difficult to control your diabetes
  • poor sleep quality
  • erectile dysfunction
  • destruction of brain cells, especially memory function

As we age, our bodies are less able to handle the wear and tear caused by stress. Normally, the body’s built in mechanisms would keep our stress hormones at the right level. Unfortunately, as we get older these mechanisms become less effective.
