Stress Survival: Going the Extra Mile By: Katlynn Ferreira, Sodexo Dietetic Intern – September 2017
Imagine riding a bike along an undulating trail. You see uphill trail ahead, embrace for it, adjust gears and pedal with extra effort. You conquer the incline and can enjoy the effortlessness going downhill. The outcome is rewarding and builds endurance and strength.
However, imagine there is no downhill and you must continue pedaling at high intensity for a prolonged period. It’s painful, increases tiredness and can lead to injury.
When stress becomes chronic, it really does a number on you like a never-ending uphill bike ride. It can reduce your performance, ability to focus and recall memory, alters emotions and creativity, increases agitation, causes difficulty sleeping, disrupts hormones and impacts your heart health. You may be more inclined to adopt certain behaviors to soothe your anxiety such as sleeping too much or too little, drink caffeine or alcohol, or maybe withdraw from social events. More often than not, such actions worsen stress.
Listen to Dr. Vivek H. Murthy, U.S. Surgeon General discuss risk factors, therapeutics and thoughts on increased stress in America.
Go the extra MILES to overcome anxiety
M: Meditation and mindfulness help you to clear thoughts, become grounded and be more present in the moment. There are many benefits to relaxation; find what works for you.
I: Interact with family and friends, face-to-face. Social media’s perfect images can set unrealistic standards, so limit your time scrolling through news feeds.
L: Listen to podcasts or music while walking to class, riding the bus, or while working on assignments. Better yet, find a peaceful outdoor spot to do nothing but listen.
E: Exercise of any kind can boost mood and improve oxygen and blood flow to the brain. Got 20 minutes before class? Put on a favorite song and dance it out.
S: Sleep, especially as a student, is just as important to pencil into your agenda as studying for exams. You couldn’t use your phone, tablet, or laptop without charging it, the same goes for your brain to keep you fully-charged.
