  • What helps you when you’re stressed?

    Posted by Tito Oye on April 22, 2022 at 9:00 am

    Stress is one of my biggest triggers of a sickle cell crisis so I need to avoid it whenever I can.

    This is easier said than done but it is essential.

    One thing that helps me is talking about how I feel. Whenever I start to feel my stress levels building, I speak to my loved ones, and more often than not, they are able to help me think of practical solutions to help manage/reduce my stress.

    Is stress a trigger for you? What do you do when you feel stressed?

    Taking walks, or just pacing, and sipping hot water helps me when I’m stressed! Also, essential oils (particularly lavender), writing, doing puzzles, resting with my guinea pigs, and watching YouTube videos help.

    For me, it’s definitely going to the gym. Some form of physical exercise really does help with getting me in the right place mentally.

    I work out daily.   Everything is low impact and plenty water.  As much as I love the heat, working out till I sweat dehydrates me very quickly.  I stop before sweating.   Small burst throughout the day.  I manage stress very well.

      @healed56 I love that you’ve found your balance between what your body can handle and when you might be doing too much!
      What form of exercise do you do?
