Men tend to deal with stress differently than women.
Women tend to share, while men tend to bottle the stress up inside of them. This can eat away at them causing high blood pressure, gastrointestinal issues, sleep issues and a loss of perspective. According to the Centers for Disease Control, men die at higher rates than women from the top 10 causes of death, with stress being one of them.
So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Men’s Health Week:
Men need to develop positive outlets to relieve their stress while they are at work.
Many men suffer from ‘terminal seriousness’ in the workplace. Terminal seriousness can hamper communication, problem solving and teamwork. So incorporate a play break and have fun. This break can help to increase productivity and creativity, while decreasing stress.
The purpose of Men’s Health Week is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. Finding outlets to work out stress throughout the day, such as squeezing that stress ball or throwing that paper airplane, can prevent stress from building and negatively impacting your health.
Lighten up and play – your body and mind will thank you.
