Stress Resilience Q & A

What is stress resilience?

Stress can be caused by day-to-day obligations like bills, work deadlines, and relationships. Major life events, like moving to a new place, divorce, or trauma are other significant sources of stress.

Stress resilience isn’t about just learning to “grin-and-bear” it or to push through difficult moments. Stress resilience helps you become aware of how you respond to stress and learn to create healthy management strategies.

Karsen helps you develop a physical and psychological resiliency that allows you to cope with stressful moments with more ease. This can help your mental health and lessen the effects stress has on your physical well-being. 

How do I know I could benefit from building stress resilience?

Many people live in a state of chronic stress. Signs that you could benefit from stress resilience support include:

  • Constant feelings of being overwhelmed, unmotivated, or unfocused
  • Racing thoughts or constant worry
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Over- or under-eating
  • Problems with concentration
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Frequent illness
  • Anger and irritability
  • Changes in your sex drive

With a customized treatment plan, Karsen can help you find healthy ways to cope and manage stress. 

What is involved in developing stress resilience?

Karsen can help you find the right tools to become more resilient to stress. These self-care measures are critical to your overall health and well-being:

 

Prioritize sleep

Sleep affects your mood and your immune system. It’s recommended for healthy adults to get at least seven to nine hours per night. Make your bedroom a comfortable place for a restful sleep. 

 

Be physically active

When you’re stressed, you may think you don’t have time to exercise. But, prioritizing physical activity helps you manage stress. Karsen recommends 30 minutes minimum every day. Find movement that brings you joy, whether it’s a long walk, playing a game of tennis, or trying yoga. 

 

Make dietary changes

Fuel your body with the right foods to boost your mood and optimize gut function. Eating the right foods helps you think more clearly and feel more energized. Fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins should make up the majority of your diet. 

 

Get out in nature

Even 10 minutes of time on a trail or soaking up the sun can significantly change your mood and stress levels. Exposure to nature lowers the levels of your stress hormones and can decrease your blood pressure. 

 

Be social

Humans are social beings. Cultivate your connections to family and friends to stay healthy and resilient. 

 

Supplemental support

Certain supplements, like adaptogens, and specific B Vitamins, can improve stress resilience as well. Body Balance Care offers some of these in-office.
