Stress Can Be Managed

MOOV Staff|January 29, 2023|5

Stress is an inevitable part of life, but it doesn't have to control you. MOOV Health can provide a variety of services and resources to help manage stress and promote overall well-being.

Based on an evaluation by a physician and a trained Coach, an individual program may include meditation and mindfulness practices. These practices involve focusing on the present moment and calming the mind, which can help reduce anxiety and improve overall well-being.

Another effective stress management technique is yoga and other forms of exercise. Exercise has been proven to reduce stress by releasing endorphins, also known as "feel-good" hormones. Yoga, in particular, is known to promote relaxation and reduce tension in the body.

Depending on the individual needs, MOOV staff may offer counseling and therapy services for those who are dealing with more severe stress or anxiety. These services can help individuals understand and cope with their stressors and develop healthy coping mechanisms.

As part of an individualized comprehensive plan, nutrition and health education may be included as well. Nutrition plays a key role in managing stress, as certain foods can help to reduce inflammation and promote relaxation, while others can exacerbate stress and anxiety.

MOOVers may also be offered a customized program of classes and workshops on stress management and overall well-being. These may include stress management techniques, time management, and relaxation techniques like progressive muscle relaxation.
