Just breathe: Stress less with these helpful tips

Stress is a natural physical and mental reaction to life experiences, and it’s something we all experience at one time or another. A little bit of stress, called “eustress,” is good and helps stimulate us so we can perform daily activities and can enhance productivity. This is the kind of stress that helps us overcome challenges and meet deadlines at work when the pressure’s on, but too much stress can have the opposite effect. This negative stress, known as “distress,” can cause problems not only for our performance at work, but also our overall physical and mental health. April is National Stress Awareness month, so it’s a great time to be proactive about managing your stress levels. Having healthy coping strategies in place, such as breathing exercises, can help you find relief at home, the office or anywhere else you encounter stress.
