As a number of CADH dental hygiene students are approaching exams, it is not surprising that many students are reporting higher levels of stress. Never fear-there are many ways to reduce these stress levels! Firstly, and as many of us already know, there are several foods which contain high amounts of stress-busting nutrients. The effects of a healthy diet can be felt mentally as much as they can be felt physically.(http://www.canadianacademyofdentalhygiene.ca/blog/reduce-the-stress-eat-great-foods.html)

Exercise however, although often overlooked, is of equal (if not greater) importance when combating high stress levels . There are several reasons why:
a�? The release of endorphins!
a�? Exercise encourages the bodya��s various systems (cardiovascular, muscular, nervous, and respiratory) to work together efficiently.
a�? Physical activity promotes better sleep cycles.
a�? Socialization! Many forms of exercise, be it a sport or a class, include an element of socialization and this social support is key for any individuala��s overall well-being and state of mind.
