Stress and Herpes and the Great Outdoors

Stress and Herpes

Note: Even if you don’t have herpes, this post will probably help you, so read on.

As you may have noticed if you have herpes, that stress can exacerbate your herpes symptoms quite a lot, so I’ll be writing more about this subject now and in the future to help you out.

Stress at Work

If you are stressed out, from the daily work grind or that annoying customer or employee you had to deal with at work, you probably don’t feel like going out. This is exactly the opposite of what you should do. Going out with friends and having fun can be a great way to relieve the stress of the day. Even a small amount of alcohol occasionally may be appropriate to help you relax and forget about your worries for a while.

I have some great tips about dealing with people & situations here in step three, again regardless of whether or not you have herpes, it will help.

If you find yourself being stressed out on a regular basis and can’t seem to get relief from your herpes symptoms, despite doing the herpes diet and taking the herpes supplements listed on this blog, then a more long term approach is in order. Not taking any action to relief your stress can raise your blood pressure, amongst other unwanted health symptoms you may get.

Ways to Manage Stress

To help relieve your stress and herpes symptoms you should consider the great outdoors. Going outside into nature almost instantly makes you feel better. There’s probably a park you can walk to close by if you are really short on time. Heck I’ve even just walked around my neighborhood before and looked at the flowers planted in the yards as I pass by.

If you have little more time, and you really should make it if your are stressed out, drive to a park, the mountains, woods or the beach if you are lucky to live close enough. All of these different types of nature walks have their own benefits and beauty that will uplift you and help to relieve your stress. Be sure to breath in the fresh air deeply while you are out.

Take this time to contemplate what you are stressed about and how you may resolve it. When you are in a relaxed state, you can more easily figure things out. Ideas will come to you that had never entered your mind. You may even gain the courage to take steps you have been procrastinating on that will further relieve the stress from your life, which will inevitably help your herpes symptoms as well. Sometimes we just need to be able to think about things free from distractions and in a stress free environment to figure out a solution that makes us feel better.

So go outside and enjoy nature as often as you can for as long as you can, but don’t worry if it’s just a few minutes per day or 30 minutes on the weekend. Even a small effort will help relieve your stress and herpes. Enjoy!
