De-Stress by Calling a Friend

Minutes to a Healthier You: Call It Out

Between social media, email, and texting, it's easy to go without actually talking to your closest friends. If you find yourself stressed out during your day, whether it be work-, family-, or life-related, there's no reason you have to deal with it on your own. Picking up the phone and reaching out to someone you trust is one of the easiest and most effective ways to make you feel better. The next time you're stressed, take a few minutes to call a friend or family member with a caring ear. Talking therapy with someone close will ease your mind and can prevent you from turning to stress-induced habits like overeating. Although turning to our loved ones in a time of need can make all the difference, it's also great to connect and laugh with friends even on days when you're feeling happy and relaxed.

I have called my mom so many times in the last few months because I just needed a confidence boost and someone to tell me everything will be fine!

I do this a lot, actually. If I'm having a super tough day at work, I'll call my sister or my husband during my dinner break and just talk for a while. It really does help me recharge for the rest of my day.
