Lowering Stress After an Accident May Help You Heal

I can’t begin to tell you the number of people I see whose stress level increases dramatically after an injury that was caused by a car accident or some other type of accident. Many people have often had medical bills they have trouble paying following an auto wreck, and many people feel increased stress because of the pain they are in, to name a couple ways injuries can increase stress. That said, here are some ways to reduce stress.

If you are feeling stressed, you may find relaxation techniques help. There are some simple things you can do to reduce stress. Try taking a few deep breaths, breathing slowly in through your nose and out through your mouth. This is an excellent way to start.

There are other things you can do as well. One technique that you can do while working or even watching television is aromatherapy. Use essential oils or incense around your work (if your co-workers don’t object) or your house. The aroma will often have a calming effect that you can combine with other relaxation techniques. You can also listen to calming music or write/journal about your day. Meditation is another very effective way to reduce stress. Yoga and exercise particularly help reduce stress. You get the calming effect of the movement, in addition to the physical benefit of getting in better shape. Walking also causes your body to relax and helps improve mood. You don’t have to go to the gym to get the benefits of exercise.
