Chronic stress is very bad news for your health. Here’s what you can do to manage stress:
The big picture: Get a handle on work-related stress by creating a foundation of stress resilience. That means getting regular exercise, prioritizing sleep (no more late-night Netflix binges!), eating nourishing meals that keep your blood sugar steady, and committing to a practice like meditation or yoga.
Little stuff (that makes a big difference): Taking brief, regular breaks at work instead of keeping your nose to the grindstone for hours on end can reduce stress and help you work more efficiently. Go for a stroll.
