How to control your stress

How to control your stress
When you start a fight, it is good to know your enemy. It gets a lot easier when you recognize if your stress is having a negative influence on your overall health, and what kind of situations engender this. Often, these situations are a mix of depression, panic, anxiety, and poor health. When you understand your stress and know how it affects your thoughts and body, you become able to control your stress.

Dealing with stress
With the right exercises and lifestyle, you can influence your thoughts and control your stress. For instance, a good night’s sleep is very important for your well-being. If you do not recharge your battery during the night, your stress level will increase the next day. So, if you do not sleep well, it will be very difficult to lower your stress. Taking care of yourself is very important when you want to control your stress. Eating healthy, exercising regularly, and getting enough rest are all important to keep your stress level low. Also, talking to others about your stress will help you a lot.

Control your stress with exercises
There will always be situations in which you feel more stressed than usual. If you recognize upcoming stress, it is important to stay calm. Breathing exercises and meditation will help you to deal with your stress. With these components, you can control your stress and feel more comfortable.

After 8 months of daily Hoffing, puffing and cold showers I can claim to be cured of my 5 year burnout. Not having had a single cold or flu, my sore knee is working perfectly again, which was very painful the last 2 years. It is like a miracle, and I’m really grateful that our paths crossed.

Wim I hope to train with you someday. I love to jump into that cold water and climb that mountain with you. Your method has truly helped me with psoriatic arthritis. I am no longer taking Humira injections for my symptoms. I am controlling it with breathing, cold showers and ice baths.

I would have paid $10,000 for this, but that would not be enough because this has changed my life. I feel like I have taken Valium yet am supercharged. As a clinical psychologist my days can be very stressful. There is a stillness inside me now, and what I am really amazed by is the peace lasts.

I started the Wim Hof method in October of 2018, and now the holes I had in my brain are gone. My neurosurgeon was so impressed by the scans that he told me I don't have to come back anymore. I take this as proof that this method works to regenerate brain tissue.
