Naturopath’s top 3 tips for managing stress:

  • Determine the cause of your discomfort and decide if you can confront the problem head-on. If you can’t change the situation, consider changing your attitude.
  • During long periods of stress, parts of your life may get neglected. Strive for balance. Schedule time for being alone, being with others, meditation, physical activity and anything else that is important to you.
  • Nature heals. We all feel better when we are surrounded by nature. Grass between the toes, the smell of pine trees, the crashing of waves, sparkling sunlight on a placid lake, watching stars twinkle in the night sky all offer a balm to stressed out minds and weary bodies. If you can’t go to nature, bring nature to you with plants, aquariums or fresh flowers.
