Google the word Stress and you will find a laundry list of causes and reasons as to why so many Americans are stressed. In Fact, Webmd.com says 75% - 90% of all doctor’s office visits are for stress-related ailments and complaints.
So by this statistic alone, the research is showing that a lot of illnesses and diseases may actually be a reflection of too much stress in our lives. Financial stress, relationship stress, emotional stress, physical stress, on the job stress, raising children stress, and the list continues…
But how do you know when you are at your breaking point?
When should you really take a step back from life’s normal stressors and take the steps needed for stress management?
Power BAR Women’s Fitness has done some research to help you better understand when enough is enough.
Check out these symptoms to see if you have been experiencing any of these regularly and compare to your daily life and current stressors and start taking action TODAY to alleviate stress!
Anxious feelings because you feel overwhelmed and out of control
Have trouble being able to relax and calm your racing mind
Self-sabotaging thoughts as if you are worthless, depressed, all alone
Your constant outbursts because of extreme levels of frustration and annoyance over small things
Seemingly trying to avoid other people who you know may care and love you and will see a change in how you are
Having low levels of energy and a lot of exhaustion
Inability to sleep, very restless
Stomach issues such as diarrhea, constipation, and nausea
Loss of sexual desire
Negative mindset and being pessimistic about almost everything
Disorganized, forgetful, and inability to focus
Constant worrying where there is no escape from the internal fears
This is a long list, and not even all is included on it. How many of these symptoms could you relate to?
Now taking into consideration your levels of current stress and then the symptoms that you are experiencing, ask yourself how often do you work out?
How many times in a full 7 day week do you steal away to take a measly 30 minutes to an hour of mental and physical recovery time in a social environment?
According to the Centers for Disease and Control (CDC) it has been reported that only 23% of Americans get enough exercise.
This is killing us slowly and for what?
We seem to wait until it is too late and pharmaceuticals take over our freedom and control our lives because we have fallen so ill due to stress accompanied by inactivity.
We let our lives run us in circles, taking on too many projects we should actually decline, doing things that don’t make us happy, overspending money on things that cost us our time freedom just to repay, and then we are too spent for anytime for ourselves.
Exercise is the perfect way to help increase positive mood levels, feelings of confidence, focus, more energy, social growth, and a healthy body. Just 30 minutes a day or at minimum 3 times a week is enough to help keep stress levels under control.
THE KEY TO STAYING COMMITTED
The reason a lot of people avoid exercise is because they want to wait until they are happy and in a good mood to go to the gym.
Some also dread working out because it is a bore and seems like a chore.
To stay committed to reducing stress and working out you have to do what you love. Working out is not about being a checklist item on your day necessarily, but about being a part of who you are. Working out should meet you at the point of need not only physically, but socially and mentally.
