Many stressors affect us mentally, but we can handle them better by taking care of ourselves PHYSICALLY. Here's how:

  1. EXERCISE REGULARLY. Exercise can help rid the body of the "stress hormones" that build up during periods of stress.
  2. IMPROVE YOUR APPEARANCE. Even moderate exercise just three times a week can have you looking slimmer and more toned. And looking better usually helps us feel better, more empowered.
  3. EAT SENSIBLY. Eat a nutritionally balanced diet. And don't skip meals; drops in blood-sugar levels can make you feel even more stressed.
  4. GET ENOUGH SLEEP. A lack of sleep can cloud your judgment and generally leave you poorly equipped to handle challenges.
