Managing Stress: InnOrbit Tips

October 8, 2012

Stress, apart from adversley affecting your mood, can lead to disease. Prolongued stress suppresses the immune system which could lead to a variety of chronic diseases. We have seen for example how much stress can make you lose sleep too which can also make you ill.  Stress and lack of sleep are contributors to heart disease and can lead to a range of other diseases. Here are a few tips to help you de-stress and lead a happier life.

1. Exercise

Exercise can increase your heart rate which can help to release hormones such as dopamine. As well as being good for your health the release of Dopamine via this exercise will make you feel good. Delivery of oxygen to muscle tissues can also release physical tension.

InnOrbit Tip: Take a cup of UP&GO then go for a brisk walk when things are getting on top of you. As well as bolstering your immune system you will feel re-energised.

2. Walkabout!

Losing your cool is not a good idea for stress so focusing on something else for a while can give you some perspective and help you to de-stress.

InnOrbit Tip: Have a cup of YOUNG&FUN take a stroll and then come back to it. YOUNG&FUN really helps to cool the nerves and will help you to focus when you go back to the issue.

3. Healthy Breathing

When we are really stressed we tend to forget to breathe deeply and our breaths become shallower. Take a few deep breaths by inhaling deeply and exhaling fully. This will release the tension you are holding in your chest and shoulders. The extra oxygen can help to amelieroate your stress levels.

InnOrbit Tip: In the evenings try doing 15 minutes of yoga and then take a cup of CALM&RELAX. CALM&RELAX has herbs & spices which will help you breathe and other functionalities which will help you relax, destress and sleep.

Have a cuppa!

4. Talk

We are social animals and we depend on one another for so many things. Social contact will help to destress – either talking through a problem or going to a social gathering (e.g. Hobby) to disconnect for a couple of hours. If you need to complain about something, vent then move on quickly. Whining could only make stress worse.

InnOrbit Tip: Share a cup of SLIM&FIT on your break whilst chatting with freinds! As well as helping to escape for 15 minutes, SLIM&FIT will aid your overall wellbeing by helping you to manage your weight. If you are trying to lose weight talking about it actually helps as other people can act as your conscious.
