4 Easy Habits for a Healthier Stress Response

No Stress - Green Roads Blog

Our ancestors’ actual survival depended on their fight-or-flight responses to stressful situations. Today, we have it a bit easier, but our stress response is still very active — and possibly even more sensitive. Daily stressors like traffic jams, work presentations, family arguments, and even sleeping through your morning alarm can not only trigger your stress response but keep you in a heightened state for a long time.

Luckily, a few simple habits can help you transform your own stress response from a negative reaction to a positive one and change what all that stress is doing to your body.

Here are four simple daily habits to help you create a healthier stress response.

1. Add CBD to Your Routine

Add CBD to Your Routine

CBD is a natural compound found in hemp plants that may help you manage everyday stress. It promotes relaxation, stress management and a calming effect by supporting your body’s Endocannabinoid System. CBD products are an increasingly popular way to manage everyday stress — and the wide variety of product options makes it easy to choose what works best for you.


Green Roads has earned more than 30,000 5-star reviews for its CBD products from customers across the country.

No matter if you enjoy gummies, sweet CBD oil, chocolate, or just a quick softgel, adding CBD to your daily routine is a simple and easy way to help you manage everyday stress.

2. Deep Breathing

Deep breathing is one of the most effective ways to slow your heart rate and trigger the relaxation response. The relaxation response, a term coined by Harvard University’s Dr. Herbert Benson in the 1960s, counteracts the effects of the stress response.

Any time you are feeling stressed, focus your awareness on slow, deep breaths from the diaphragm or abdominal region. This type of breathing helps bring your body into a more restful state.

3. Exercise

Building a healthier stress response isn’t all mental! Physical exercise is one of the most rewarding ways to manage stress and feel good about yourself. High-intensity cardio is a great way to flush excess cortisol from your system, but even a brisk walk to start your day or close out a stressful situation can go a long way toward reducing stress and building a healthier stress response.

 

When possible, be active outdoors. The very act of being out in nature can support a healthier stress response. If you can, find somewhere you can rest or walk that’s away from busy streets, crowds, and noise. No matter if it’s a park, trail, or countryside stroll, dedicating some time each day to being in nature is a great way to support a healthy stress response.

4. Journaling

Journaling is a powerful way to promote a healthier stress response. It can help you slow your thoughts down and process emotions. Consistent daily journaling is ideal, but even jotting down your thoughts and feelings about a certain stressful situation can be a great way to cope with stress. 

 

Journaling can promote mental clarity and self-exploration that help maintain a healthy stress response. Like meditation, there are a ton of different journaling techniques you can experiment with, such as gratitude journaling, free writing, visual journaling, and more.
