When left alone stress can lead to or increase a number of health problems; everything from heart disease, to acne, to obesity, to depression, and anxiety.
To kick off Stress Awareness Month, here are some tips on how de-stress the natural way!

Do something different. Any change, whether big or small can make a difference when it comes to stress.
Laughter truly is the best medicine. Laughing works your core, improves your mood, teaches you to breathe properly, increases your cardio capacity, and fights off germs. Whatever it takes, give yourself time for laughter each and every day
4. Meditate to Medicate
