“Stress contributes to heart disease, high blood pressure, and even type 2 diabetes. Men and women experience stress at relatively high levels, but men tend to be more affected by it”, said Melinda Dalacas, manager of Southwest Spas and Pools.
Here are 3 ways for men to reduce stress and improve their health.
Sleep Better – Lack of sleep increases weight gain and can aggravate stress related troubles such as high blood pressure and cardiac disease. Make sure the bedroom is quiet and dark. Even a night light can make it difficult for the brain to shut down and allow the body to go to sleep. If light is necessary for middle of the night movements, an easy to reach, low light lamp or night is best.
Find Time for Fun –Take the time to make sure there is always time for fun and enjoyable activities. Go out dancing, take a walk, or start a hobby. Having fun releases hormones in the body that work to eliminate stressors from the day.
Add a Hot Tub to the Home – Soaking in a hot tub for 30 minutes before bedtime helps prepare the body for a good night’s sleep. Warm, temperature regulated water also helps increase blood flow to important organs, reduces blood sugar levels, and provides therapy to sore muscles and joints.
