Take Control in Managing Your Stress
As we navigate through COVID-19, you may be feeling even more stressed these days. This can be related to your own health, the health of a loved one, your finances or job, any necessary outings you may need to make, or concerns about the future. These feelings are valid.
News media and healthcare practitioners have touched on these subject matters. Perhaps you have mentioned these feelings to your doctor, a family member or friend. Even though you have confided in others about these feelings, you may still feel alone and isolated.
You can’t control our current environment, but you can control how you react to it. Having a positive reaction to stressful surroundings can help to improve physical health and well-being, lower depression, and strengthen your immune system.
To manage your stress here’s what you can do:
You can simply walk. Take 10,000 steps each day in order to boost your cardiovascular system. Engaging in physical activities can decrease feelings of anxiety, anger, frustration, and improve your distress.
If you use Starkey’s Livio AI hearing aids, the device will track how many steps you take. Using this tracking system will drive you to achieve your exercise goals.
Research and Use Tools that will Help You Relax
Use resources that will help you take a moment to lower your stress levels in the middle of or after a chaotic day.
Meditate. Go to a beach, a quiet spot outside, or somewhere in your home. Find a place where you feel most comfortable.
You can stream calming music from your own collection, or find a YouTube video that features calming sounds through the Livio AI hearing aids. Concentrate on your breathing as you listen.
