Simple lifestyle adjustments can help in regulating stress levels.

Unmanaged stress can kill you. There is no simple way around it. It is a huge contributor to heart attacks, disease, and the breakdown of your immune system. There are simple changes that you can make in your every day routine that can help you better manage the stress. 

- Turn the cell phones off for awhile, the constant connection through emails, texting, and routine calls can get overwhelming. (Get an answering service or have a recorded message stating you will return the calls later)
-Get enough sleep. Your body can not run on fumes. If your not getting a good nights rest your body can not restore itself from the day before.
-Sit down and eat your meals. Many people eat while in the car, in front of a TV, or a computer. Your mind needs to be able to rest and in order for you to properly digest your food your going to have to really calm down and sit still for awhile. 
-Keep your mind focused on positive things. Surround yourself with people and activities which can bring positive life filled words and experiences into your life. Negativity can weigh on you and drain you emotionally, physically, and even spiritually. 

Simple changes made every day can lead you to a stronger life....a longer life...and a more healthy life!
