This Week’s RainTask

According to an article published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, stress can affect the body in ways that promote tumor growth and metastasis. While it may be difficult to fully prevent instances of acute, or short-lived, stress; chronic stress is something that should be addressed and resolved before it wreaks havoc on your body and immune system. Here are some ideas to help you manage your stress:

  • Expose yourself to a new physical perspective - While some individuals thrive on routine, others need an escape to keep their stress levels from skyrocketing. If you’re looking for an escape, try surrounding yourself with a new landscape, or check out the view from the nearest skyscraper. Removing yourself from your every day surroundings may help you realize that you have the ability to conquer the challenges in your life.

  • Embark on an adventure - If trying something new sounds exhilarating to you, make it happen! Challenging your mind and/or body is a great way to get out of your head. Ideally, you’ll walk away with a new accomplishment under your belt and something positive to reflect on when stress tries to creep in.
