Stress Management PEARLS

PearlsUse this easy acronym to remember essential stress management PEARLS:

P – Positive Thinking Notice what you are thinking and then pay attention to positive thoughts and watch negative thoughts fade away

E- Exercise regularly  Find something that you enjoy and works, and then do it at least 5 days a week.

A – Activities with family and friends It is so important to connect with others. If a day goes by where you did not feel a connection to someone else, reach out.

R – Relax Small bits of time spent relaxing every day pay big wellness dividends. Just taking some deep relaxing breaths for less than a minute a few times a day will make a difference.

L – Laughter Laughter has big benefits. Tell a joke. Laugh at a joke even if it isn’t funny.

S- Sleep  The more we learn about sleep, the more important it is. Get 8 hours every night.
