5 Ways to Use Holistic Wellness to Manage Stress

Updated: Mar 17, 2020

About five years ago, I was so stressed out that I cracked my tooth in the middle of the night. The force of grinding my teeth caused a crack down the side of my tooth that was visible to my dentist the next week; a dentist who had always mentioned to me that grinding teeth can worsen with stress. I walked out of the dentist office thinking, ‘I am a complete nut case. I’ve now harmed my body because I’m so stressed out’. I realized that I wasn't managing my stress as well as I thought, and that I needed to find something that could help me get it under control. This unfortunate event took me down the rather unconventional path of exploring holistic wellness.

Often described as a way to treat the whole self – mind, body, and spirit, holistic wellness is essentially anything that is a natural method for self-care. Many of the methods that fall under this category have evolved over thousands of years in different countries around the world. Because of the various sources, it can often be a challenging world to navigate. So to make it a little easier, here are five methods that I have discovered over the course of my exploration into the world of holistic wellness that can help to manage stress:

· Meditation – great for stress and anxiety and boosting your immune system

· Acupuncture – great for chronic pain

· CBD – great for reducing inflammation and improving your sleep

· Hypnotherapy – great for reducing grinding/clenching of the teeth

· Yoga – great for managing depression and relieving tension in tight muscles

In today’s fast paced world, it can be difficult to slow down and think about the stress that is impacting us on a daily basis. But if you take even a few minutes out of your day to give some of these self-care options a try, I’m positive it will make a difference in your life!
