Reducing Stress in the New Year

Let’s take a look back at 2019, did you feel overly stressed in the last year of the decade? Do you want to reduce your stress this year? Then you will love these tips and tricks!


Take time out of your day to meditate, there are many meditation guides on youtube or my favorite is in the Universe has Your Back book. Studies have shown that meditation can reduce symptoms of anxiety and panic.  After you meditate it is good to also start a gratitude journal. I seem to preach this a lot but in the morning write down one thing you are grateful for and one thing you are excited for in the day to come. You will want to do this to that you don’t give up on your goals for 2020. It also helps when you are feeling like you’re in a funk. When you list something you are excited for it will also keep you upbeat! Then at night you should write down what you are proud of and something that you did well that day. What you focus on expands, this is why it is important to have gratitude!

2. Get Adjusted!Chiropractic adjustment at Imagine Chiropractic

It’s a fact we are all under some kind of stress and our bodies cannot determine if it is good stress or bad stress. I like to think of our body’s ability to adapt to stress like a bucket, we can add stress to the bucket but at some point it will overflow thus causing us some sort of symptoms. Chiropractic adjustments help make our buckets bigger so we can continue to put the same stresses in without getting the pesky symptoms. Adjustments help the body adapt better!

3. Exercise

We all know exercise is good for us, we know that it results in decreasing chances for having chronic diseases. Studies show that exercises lower the sympathetic nervous system, which is the part of our nerve system that stresses our body out-think back to the fight/flight system you learned about in high school biology. When we exercise we start to increase our bodies ability to react to potential threats which allows us to handle stress better. Some studies found that martial arts can reduce anxiety better than say riding a stationary bike however any form of exercise will help you out!

I hope that this information will make 2020 the best year yet for you!
