Hello April, where everything seems to get a little brighter! April also happens to be Stress Awareness Month. How can someone be stressed when the sun is out and the flowers are blooming ? We are so used to constantly being on the move, juggling work, family, and everything in between, that we don’t have time to appreciate what’s around us.
Our Renton chiropractic care specialists here at Pettet Chiropractic emphasize the importance of stress awareness because this constant worrying can take a negative toll on your body and health. Stress makes us vulnerable to health problems such as cancer, heart disease, obesity, and more. Chronic stress can lead to anxiety, which in turn can lead to depression.
Apart from being mentally taxing, stress can also be physically straining. It creates pain, particularly in the lower back and legs, as well as causes headaches and sleep issues. Use this month to reflect on what causes you the most stress in your life. This kind of awareness will allow you to take the right steps to combating stress, and create a better state of mind. What are some things you can do to decrease your stress levels right now?
- Listen to music
- Enjoy nature
- Spend time with friends and family
It’s important to prioritize activities that keep you calm and grounded. Taking care of yourself is just as important as taking care of your loved ones. If physical pain caused by stress continues, make sure to set up an appointment with our Renton chiropractic care specialists for a massage or adjustment today! We’ll work with you to set up a program that fits into your busy schedule. Don’t stress, we’ve got it all handled!
