Managing Stress at Every Age
No matter how old you are, stress remains a consistent part of life from infancy to our golden years, ebbing and flowing with all of life’s twists and turns. And while it may be a natural part of life, it doesn’t have to run yours.
Here are a few tips for managing stress at every age.
For children: While recognizing stress triggers come later in life, teaching children breathing techniques for mindfulness may help them build an early, healthy habit.
For teens: Sleeping and eating well are a teenager’s best friend. Their changing minds and growing bodies crave both.
For adults: With life moving a mile a minute, it’s important for adults to take a step back. Schedule leisure time so you don’t burn yourself out.
For older adults: As we age, it’s important to maintain social relationships for our own wellbeing. Sometimes, connecting with a friend we’ve known for years is just the ticket for boosting our mood and lowering stress.
