9 Tips for Stress Relief

How Can One Deal With Stress Effectively?

Here are 9 stress relieving techniques that you can use now. I hope you find this information useful and apply these techniques when necessary.

1. You must be positive and think positive. Do not let certain things eat you up from the inside out – you know what I mean. Keep your mind clear, it is one of the most important tools that anyone can have when it comes to dealing with stress on a day to day basis. The key is focusing your mind on positive and optimistic parts of your life all the time, with positive words and affirmations. This practice will improve your morale and confidence, and improve the overall state of mind.

2. Laugh Out Loud. Laughing is the best medicine when life seems to weigh you down with unexpected life events and toils. Just remembering something funny at work or at home will relieve your mind. Go to a comedy club or see a funny movie. Perhaps it is time to visit your old friend who was always a comedian back in the day. Just find something that will help you to stretch the facial muscles. ;-)

3. Try to prioritize and organize things in your life. Priorities in activities of daily living will help to reduce the daily stress. Do not leave things to the last minute, this will only cause unnecessary stress and frustration.

4. Communicate. Inform your friends and family about what is going on in your life. When you are expressing your thought and emotions, you are helping to cope with the stress in a healthier way.

5. Learn to Relax. There are so many things that you can do to relax and unwind when you are stressed like take a bath, listen to music, dance, practice yoga, meditation or go out with your friends.

6. Do not postpone a solution to your problem. Delaying the solution to the issues will only make things worse in the long term. Learning how to deal with problems when they arise will help you to cope better.

7. Exercise. Thirty minutes of intense cardiovascular training will clear your mind. Try exercising in the morning if you can. If aerobic training is not your cup of tea, a good stretch and lifting light weights will do the job as well. Physical activities will keep your body in tone and your mind fresh and stress free.

8. Chiropractic Physicians work primarily with muscles and joints, which can affect the nervous system. One effect of chronic stress is prolonged muscle tension and contraction. This muscle tension creates uneven pressures on the bony structures of the body, often leading to tightness and pain. The physical medicine a Chiropractic Physician performs releases muscle tension and improves circulation, which helps the body return to a more balanced, relaxed state. These changes may be enough, in many cases, to convince the brain to turn off the fight or flight response, beginning the process of healing. A healthy and balanced system is one key to effectively manage stress.

9. Acupuncture works to alleviate stress by releasing natural pain-killing chemicals in the brain, called endorphins.  In addition, acupuncture improves circulation of blood throughout the body, which oxygenates the tissues and cycles out cortisol and other waste chemicals.  The calming nature of acupuncture also decreases heart rate, lowers blood pressure and relaxes the muscles.

Apply these techniques to life and it will help you live a happier stress free lifestyle.

Dr. Nick is great!!! I always thought Chiropractors were quacks, I was GREATLY mistaken!! I have had some neck issues and back issues over the years and my regular doctor has only prescribed me muscle relaxors, which only masked the pain. I don't like taking them, because I don't like taking drugs and the sluggish effects they bring you. I have taken these muscles relaxors and still have the same problems, nothing had been resolved! I am a very active person and I don't choose to be taking all this medication and having the horrible side effects and left with the same problem. Going to Dr. Nick has been amazing! He has really helped me and helped with the pain and has effectively solved my issues and has brought back the moblity to my neck and back! I am back to all the activities I have not been able to do prior! He is very easy to talk to and is a great listener and he has given me great exercises to do along with the treatment. My pain has ceased and I feel great!! I strongly reccommend Dr. Nick and will continue to refer him to everyone I can!----J.P.


Dr. Venuti and his staff are incredible.  They are friendly, professional, and really LISTEN to your concerns.  They really work as a team to treat your muscle/spine issues.  I used to be skeptical of chiropractic care, but not anymore!----S.V.
