‘Todos tenemos estrés.’ ¡Pero no debe ser así!

¡Hola, amorcitos!

The other day I had to go to the doctor for my check-up. Simpre me pongo nerviosa cuando tiene que ver con la doctora. I think it’s normal. At least, that’s what I tell myself.

Anyway, I was having a headache and slightly tired when the nurse asked me how I was doing that day. I told her and said, “Creo que es por estrés que tengo de trabajo y cosas así.” She waved it off and said, “Todos tenemos estrés de algo.”

It wasn’t a big deal to her, but it was a big deal to me. Stress manifests itself in different ways and although there’s nothing definitive on this it might help high cholesterol and high blood pressure go higher! Y eso, amorcitos, no es bueno, especialmente cuando tienes la diabetes. In addition, studies have shown that stress may change the way blog actually clots, which can increase a chance of a heart attack. All you need is one.

Because people get stressed, they might not eat well or exercise either. This, con la gente con diabetes, causa que se sube la glucosa de la sangre. You don’t want your blood sugars to go up because that just means you’re not taking care of yourself.

Stressed out! El estrés es la razón por muchas enfermedades. ¡Necesitamos cuidarnos toditos!

So, how do you relieve stress? How can you relieve stress?

1. Go for a walk or do your favorite exercise. Breathing fresh air and taking deep breaths can help to relax you and make you feel like your problems aren’t as big as they may seem at the moment. If they are big, well, a walk can help you clear you head and stay focused on priorities.

2. Stop drinking and smoking. Si sientes que esto te ayuda, no es sierto. Adding chemicals to your body will increase the stress, not help it. Don’t cloud yourself with things that will hurt you in the long run. Plus, ¡eso no es bueno para ti!

3. Stay positive. Esto es una de las cosas más dificiles para los Latinos, siento. Uno se tiene que poner en mente positiva para sobre salir las causas del estrés y todos los sentimientos y emociones que viene con el estrés. Da gracia por lo que tienes. Say no to people if you don’t have time to make commitments you can keep and don’t overwhelm yourself.

4. Let it go. Ay, ya se! Eso es, pero bien, bien dificil. Pero, lo que no puedes controlar, lo tienes que dejar. It’s your life, remember that. Y sólo tú lo controlas. No one else has say over what you do or how you do it. Therefore, tú, y sólo tú, tienes la culpa por el estrés! Aprenda lo que te cae mal y lo que te hace reír. It’s always good to know what makes you happy.

5. Laugh! Watch a funny movie, hang out with people who love you and do something fun that takes your mind off of things for a little while. You need to be able to control your blood sugars and your stress because your body is all connected. You need to make sure everything is balanced. ¡Eso te va salvar la vida!

Remember, cuídate con todo el corazón.

Hasta la próxima, amorcitos!
