Chronic Stress Treatments That Work

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based therapy that explores how thoughts, feelings, and actions are connected. It helps you identify unhelpful thought patterns to replace them with thoughts that reduce stressors. CBT teaches you to change stressful thoughts, handle triggers, and stay focused. CBT shows positive results in reducing chronic stress.

Mindfulness improves your mind and body resulting in lowering stress levels. Your mental state will improve, and your body will heal. It alleviates fear(a stressor) which reduces chronic stress. Mindfulness can also improve your immune function. Through mindfulness, you’ll learn valuable tools (breathing exercises & focus training) to lower your cortisol and stress levels.

Making positive changes to your lifestyle can reduce stress responses in your life. Stress management through regular exercise, a balanced diet, sufficient sleep, and relaxation techniques such as deep breathing or muscle relaxation are helpful in stress management. These habits improve your mood and relax your nervous system.
