Playing How You can Stop Chronic Stress from Taking Over Your Life

Is chronic stress taking a toll on your life? The Doctors explain persistent stress can affect us both emotionally and physically and we welcome preventative medical specialist Dr. Erika Schwart to share tips on how to remove it from your life.

Put your stress in a drawer - She says not every problem has a solution or needs to be solved right away and explains if something feels too complicated right now, stow it away and come back to it later.

Take a deep breath out - The expert says this helps to relax the body and lower your blood pressure. She says to inhale for 5 seconds and then exhale for 7 seconds and repeat 3 times.

Practice pausing - She explains taking time to stop and pause -- and not immediately reacting to something -- will help you make better decisions, especially during a stressful situation. She also notes some stressful instances do not even need or deserve a reaction. 

Dr. Schwart says these steps may help to protect you and those around you from making poor choices during stressful and uncertain moments.
