However, dealing with consistently high stress levels can be problematic for your well-being. Some studies suggest that as many as 72% of American adults report being under heavy stress. Staggering figures like these can contribute to health consequences that can affect your quality of life. Although there are many potential causes behind stress, its impact is far-reaching.

For instance, some medical experts believe that there is a correlation between stress and spider veins, which can, in turn, raise stress levels further. Have spider veins negatively impacted you? Here are a few things you can do to decrease your stress levels and how our office can assist.

How Stress Contributes to Spider Veins

There can be several causes of spider veins, some of which, such as genetics, are out of your control. However, managing and reducing stress levels is an essential part of maintaining your health. Leading a lifestyle of unmanaged stress can raise your blood pressure levels, which can cause damage to the valves in your veins, causing spider veins to develop.

Maintain an Exercise Routine

Many people lead fast-paced, busy lives. In the midst of trying to meet deadlines, maintain your home, and balance a budget, it can be easy to neglect to get enough exercise. However, many people find it challenging to include exercise in their schedules, but it’s crucial to do so. Many experts attest to the benefits of getting exercise. For instance, many medical professionals recommend that you get at least 30 minutes of physical activity each day to remain in solid health.

Other Wellness Strategies

There are many wellness strategies you can adopt to help reduce stress and relax. Along with maintaining a healthy diet and getting exercise, other stress-relieving strategies you can adopt can include:

  • Yoga
  • Swimming
  • Journaling
  • Gardening
  • Painting
