Doctor-rheumatologist, psychophysiologist Pavel Evdokimenko named simple ways to get rid of stress. According to him, due to stress and negative information that people are looking for, their health deteriorates. Therefore, he recommends people to get away from the information blow.
- Try not to watch disturbing news, do not read articles that cause negativity. 5-15 minutes a day will be enough for you to know all the relevant information. Respond to any stressful events with action if you can. The best way to relieve stress hormones is through physical activity, the doctor said.
Evdokimenko recalled that stress hormones prepare the body for an attack or escape. However, many decide not to change anything in their lives, they worry. This is the path to illness and compromised health.
The doctor suggested using the method of polar explorer Richard Byrd as a stress management tool. He spent several months at the base in Antarctica all alone.
- He listened to world news on the radio, while the Great Depression was raging in the United States. Gradually, he learned to perceive it differently. He tried to focus on what he could control himself. According to him, world news has become as meaningless to him as it is to a Martian. Here is Byrd's method. First, don’t worry about what you cannot influence. Second: engage in self-education, focus on what only you can control. Get exercise. Third: try not to be sad about the past, but to think about the present, - said the doctor.
Evdokimenko recalled breathing exercises, thanks to which a person can calm down and effectively fight insomnia. To do this, you need to breathe deeply and slowly through your stomach, inhaling through your nose.
