Worried and Stressed? Please Try These Things.

How are you? I hope this post finds you holed up at home with your loved ones, safe and healthy. It’s definitely a scary time right now, with so many of us stressed and worried about our health, finances, and more. I know I am!

So I thought I’d give you a few suggestions on how to reduce your stress and feel better during this time. Here are some things I’ve been doing to improve my mood.

1. Walk in nature. Now is a great time (weather permitting) to take a hike or walk. This past weekend my wife Amy and I brought our kids on a hike in a local park several miles away. We spotted a group of six deer and twelve wild turkeys. So cool! If you’re not sure where to go, I recommend a free app that you can download to your phone called ALL TRAILS. It connects with Apple Maps to bring you right to all the different trails in your area.

2. Meditate. I admit that I’m not a big meditator (is that even a word?). However, Amy and I have recently begun meditating as a way to reduce stress and center ourselves. I’m finding that even ten minutes of meditation can make me feel rejuvenated. I think it’s even helping me sleep better! If you’d like to try meditation, check out the HEADSPACE app. This contains free meditations from a guy whose voice sounds like Ricky Gervais.

3. Exercise. It can help you relieve stress, lose weight, and make you look younger. ‘Nuff said!

Please continue to practice social distancing. I have so many friends on the front lines in the hospitals, risking their lives to keep everyone safe. Please honor them by doing your part to help prevent the spread of these deadly viruses. It’s the least that we can do.

Thank you!
