Breathe and Relieve

An unstable economy, high rates of unemployment, lack of health care benefits, credit card debt, inflation; all these contribute to severe stress for many Americans. Severe stress can significantly impact your health. Did you know that chronic stress can cause unwanted  physical changes such as an elevated heart rate and short, shallow breathing? As a diabetic, it can also cause your blood sugar levels to soar.   One of the most effective ways to stablize your blood sugar is to rest and allow your body return to a more normal range. 

Unfortunatley, it is difficult to find the more time to rest. Most of us do not have the time to sleep more or take a nap.  As a diabetic, however, taking time to calm your body and mind is key to managing diabetes.  Try taking a few minutes  throughout the day to relax and breathe.  For example,  try taking three slow deep cleansing breaths  in the morning before leaving for work, again at lunch and once more before loading the dishwasher after dinner. A  few minutes of deep breathing can help your body and mind to relax and restore blood sugar levels to a more normal range.  We can’t get rid of much of the stress in our lives but we can reduce some of the impact it has on our health. 

To learn more ways to manage the negative effects of stress look for, “The Superstress Solution” by Dr. Roberta Lee.
