While scientists conducting studies have stressed the need for a better focus on familial well-being and health, stress and anxiety are two deep-rooted factors that we must all work to alleviate from the very beginning. Not only can these conditions be mentally taxing, but they can also lead to a lot of inflammation, further weaken down the immune system, impact the heart health and slow the body down. In the times we are living in, any health condition cannot, and should not be taken lightly. Therefore, stress and anxiety should be managed in a holistic manner. Here are a few ways to do so:
-Practice meditation and engage in breathing exercises.
-Take time out to be physically active and exercise every single day
-Seek help from a support group, and socialize with your close ones (be it virtually or in person)
-Do not be complacent or precarious in your COVID behaviour
-Practice gratitude every single day
-Have a helpful, healing diet that lower down stress levels.
