Psychologist offers tips to help with stress

April is National Stress Awareness month.

If you didn't know, don't stress out about it. If you do, there are some things you can do. Psychologist Dr. Amanda Sellers visited WFMZ to talk about how to de-stress.

Some of the effects stress has on the human body is chronic headaches, gastrointestinal issues, muscle tension, and fatigue among others. It also impacts your mood. Irritability, anxiety and nervousness are some of the results from stress.

Dr. Sellers suggested several methods to improve stress. Some of these include going for a quick, 10-minute walk, learning to say no and valuing your own time, doing things you enjoy and practice accepting the idea there are things outside of your control.

For the entire list of ideas and suggestions Dr. Sellers has to reduce stress, watch the video above.
