Oova 101: How to Reduce Stress

When people say “just relax, you’ll get pregnant,” it’s both aggravating and completely false. However, managing stress levels will likely allow you to feel better mentally, and boost your overall health.

Stress does impact your body in a big way. If you're feeling overwhelmed, try some of these easy stress-relief exercises. 

How to reduce stress

Try meditating

Meditation allows both short term stress relief and long lasting stress management effects. Meditation and mindfulness helps you to focus on exactly what you’re experiencing and feeling, and that you can’t worry about things that have happened, or may happen. Meditation takes practice, but it can make a big difference in your stress levels.

Take a walk

Walking allows you to get fresh air, change up your scenery, and move your body. Exercise is a great way to reduce stress, and walking is an easy and rewarding way to get some movement. Yoga is another great exercise that reduces stress and has both physical and mental benefits.
