Managing Stress for Better Health

Hello everyone, I’ve been really struggling with the effects of stress on both my physical and mental health lately. It’s been impacting my sleep, my appetite, and my ability to concentrate. I’ve been feeling really overwhelmed and like I can’t handle everything that’s being thrown at me. I’ve tried a few different things to manage my stress, like exercise and talking to a therapist, but I still feel like I’m not making much progress. I would really appreciate any advice or support from others who have gone through something similar. It’s tough to admit that I’m struggling, but I know that reaching out for help is the first step to feeling better. Thank you all for listening.
