4 Simple and Scientifically-Backed Stress-Management Strategies

It's estimated that chronic stress contributes to the development of up to 90% of diseases, including both mental and physical health issues.

A little stress is normal, but when your stress load is so high that it becomes chronic, it can have a negative impact on your gut health, immune system, hormone balance, and increase inflammation to dangerous levels.

Obviously, if you could just wave a magic wand and make all of your stressors go away, you would. Telling you to worry less isn't going to do you any good.

To make matters worse, a lot of the stress-management strategies that you'll find on the internet take

a lot of effort—at least at first— and when you're already chronically stressed you just don't have the bandwidth to make big changes all at once.

That's why the best approach is to start with small steps that you can easily integrate into your everyday life.

One of the simplest things you can do for yourself is to get your next 3 acupuncture appointments on the books.

Acupuncture is scientifically proven to reduce chronic stress by increasing nervous system resilience and helping to regulate hormones.

Scheduling your acupuncture sessions in advance has 3 advantages.

1. You don't have to remember to do it. I can't tell you how many times I hear patients tell me "I wanted to come back sooner, but I kept forgetting to call."

2. You're more likely to find a time-slot that you like.

3. When you schedule your acupuncture sessions in advance, you have stress-management built right into your schedule.

Remember, it's a lot easier to cancel an appointment than it is to remember to make one!

If you don’t have an upcoming appointment, call us today and book your next 3 sessions in one go: (503) 372-6463
