Reducing Stress After an Accident Injury

I can’t begin to tell you the number of people we see whose stress level increases dramatically after an injury that was caused by a car accident. Many people often have medical bills they have trouble paying, and they feel increased stress because of the pain they are in.

If you are feeling stressed, you may find some simple relaxation techniques help. 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 affect that you can combine with other relaxation techniques. You can also listen to calming music or keep a 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.
