Health Goals for the New Year
This is often the time of year when people resolve to make positive health changes in their health, like losing weight, cutting down on salt, sugar or fat intake, or stop drinking as much. But did you know that stress reduction can be a health goal as well?
Stress reduction as a health goal
What areas of your life create the most stress? Do your relationships make you unhappy? Are you frustrated with your job? Are you self-employed and fretting about the still-languishing economy? Is a chronic health condition making you feel tired, sad and isolated? Are financial problems weighing on you? Take a moment to list the sources of stress in your life, in all areas of your life.
Improve your coping skills for stress reduction
What do you do to cope with those things? Some people eat compulsively, drink, smoke, or create unhealthy patterns in their lives. Other people work or play video games to escape their worries and stress. Sometimes you use better stress reduction skills than others. Next to the sources of stress, write down what you do to cope with it. And if you want to get fancy, decide whether that way of coping is helpful for the long haul.
Whatever the source of your stress, this can be the year that you start to take control and handle stress in a more resilient, healthy way. Your health goals will go a lot farther and the positive results will last longer if you tackle the root of the issue, which is the unhealthy management of stress.
